Okay, so I vanished for a while. Matter of fact, I'm probably still not back yet. I've got school things keeping me busy, among other distractions. Plus the fact that I'm writing. And I don't mean just prose, either. Poetry, novels, short stories, I'm doing the whole gamut. It's quite enthralling, but as a result, I rarely have the drive to put up a post or two, even if it's just to let you - dear readers - know what's going on.

So no, I haven't gone missing in reality. But I am rather busy. With luck, things will slow down after the next few assignments are in, tests taken, and grades given (by the way, I figure I have a solid A in pre-1960 American Lit - this from the three papers I've already gotten back, not a one below A-). But who knows even then? I've got another move coming up at the end of August (vacating Toronto for what might be the final - heavy), and I'll be a bit fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants-y for a while. Scary stuff. And on top of that, I have to start looking for gainful employment in Hamilton - and I have to start now, because by the time I actually move down there again, all those young university students will have snatched all the fruitful positions (although I can hope that because I can commit to a full-time position, employers will give my resume some further weight...).

So much to do, so little time to do it in. And I thought things might get a little easier after deadlines were done! (Yeah, yeah - save the chiding about naivete, I've heard it all before).

So yeah, there you go. I haven't given up here. It's not something I can give up, seeing that I need an outlet for creativity, lest I explode. I'm just taking a bit of time - perhaps for the next few months, who knows? - to get things settled, get my positions staked out. After that, I'll see about restarting regular posting.

And now, I'm already up way too late. To bed!

A webjournal of ideas, comments, and various other miscellany from a Texan university student (with occasional input from his family) living in Toronto, Ontario. Can you say "culture shock?"
