I’ve been busy for awhile. Very busy. So much has changed in my life in the past few weeks that I just haven’t had a chance to sit down and write. I’m going to keep this a short update so I can get back into the meatier content I have planned.
First off, I moved. I mentioned awhile back that it was going to happen, as both of my then-roommates announced plans to move in with their respective boyfriends. As New York moves tend to, it happened quickly. I went from feeling out places to signing paperwork in what felt like the blink of an eye. In less than two weeks I had to pack up everything I own, hire movers, find subletters, cancel utilities, open new utilities, etc. All of the super-fun things that go with moving, which I haven’t needed to do 100% on my own before. Then I had to start unpacking, arranging things, buying stuff, and so forth. It’s a lot, and it doesn’t always leave time and energy for writing.
Second, I started fostering a little dog! His name is Wesley, he’s a chihuahua, and he’s about 9 years old. He is absolutely delightful and a sweet little dude.
He likes to take me on long walks, so that has kept me pretty busy, as well. I also had to take him to be neutered at a vet in Manhattan, and take him there again when he had some tummy issues.
In between the unpacking and dog-momming, I’m still working on my dissertation. I haven’t done as much as I’d like in the past few weeks, but I’ve been trying to do something most days.
So you can see why blogging was slipping to the back for awhile. But I’m here now! I’d like to get back into putting out great content, so stick around, won’t you?
