I just finally finished my last paper for the semester. Seems like an incredibly long semester, I know. It was. This last one had a late deadline, which means only my few classmates in this elective course have continued to work, while it seems like the rest of the universe has moved on to joyful and relaxing vacations. But for me, the last few weeks have mainly involved late nights and anti-social behavior. I almost completely stopped responding to emails, neglected a number of tasks I need to complete, and haven’t logged into wordpress since the last time I wrote something – and I’m not even sure when that was. It’s been as if I think I’m only capable of completing one intelligent task at a time – even if the priority task requires more than a week. Doesn’t matter. All of my brain power must be focused. So if you asked me a question during this time – I hope to get around to thinking about it and answering it soon.
Okay, but focusing my intelligence on one task doesn’t mean I haven’t allocated a certain amount of time to mindless activities. So don’t feel too sorry for me. I’ve been having a pretty good time. I’m just looking forward to no longer feeling guilty about the mindless activities, while also thinking intelligently about some other things.
One of my regrets of my self-imposed non-school-thought strike is that I’ve lost track of whatever I should be sharing here. I even had some moments of self-doubt and considered not returning to the blog. But there is still plenty to share. Even if no one still finds this interesting. Like when I ran into a little boy on my bike – literally ran into him. Well, he ran into me. It was his fault, I swear. But I knocked him down. And it was horrifying. This is what’s going on over here, folks. And I need to get it off my chest. (The kid was fine, by the way. His father only chastised him and didn’t even acknowledge my frantic concern for his careless child’s well-being.)
So now with some new thought time on my hands, I’m going to try to catch up on stuff – in real life and blog life. I have a new appreciation for summer. I better not waste it.

It’s totally fine to take some mental time off, Dana! Everyone deserves a little respite every now and again! Ease back into the world slowly. It’s not going anywhere….
