Semester Stress

I haven't updated this blog in quite awhile, and it's because I've been a bit stressed lately. I'm finishing up moving my residence, from south Minneapolis to St. Anthony, where we're renting a slightly bigger, nicer, and cheaper space. I'm getting ready to really get digging in to doing my dissertation, and I'm glad to be living in a space more conducive to the work I need to get done, but the move has been hard.

It's also a hard teaching year. I don't really feel like getting into that, for a number of reasons, but I'll just throw out as a teaser that first year students can be a bit challenging, particularly when they're struggling to adapt to the culture of the university. Feel free to leave comments remind me that teaching is a noble profession and all of that. Right now, I just want a couple days away from it all, and that's not going to happen until December. Who knew that I would look forward to winter?
