Hanging Up My Spurs

It's not that I don't want to write. It's not that I'm "over" blogging. I do want to, I just can't. I love this blog. I love writing in it, I love thinking up what I'm going to write in it. I've got a million stories built up in my head that I would love to sit down and write. But if I'm going to finish this dissertation in anything remotely approaching the alloted time in which I will be funded to write, I've got to focus my energies.

This would've been a cleaner break if I'd just stopped for good when I said I would earlier this summer, but I found upon quitting that I missed it too much. Well I still miss it, but I've got an assload of work to get done - work I actually enjoy doing, which is a nice change from the status quo - and I can't sit at the library and daydream about blogging right now. So I'm sorry, blog, and I'm sorry, me. But this pony is going to take a nice long nap in its stall. It may come out once or twice every now and then when something just too good comes along, or if i get a chance to take another cool trip, but I can no longer maintain the pretense that I'll post tomorrow. Too many interviews to transcribe, too much work to get done right now. In lieu of cheastypants, I'd like to direct your attention to a little blog written by a student (friend of mine) who is studying abroad in China. It's fantastic, and makes me laugh out loud. It's called Keller's Cogitations. Go, read, be merry.

Adios, mundo mio. Talk to you all later.
