Having Troubles with Blogging

I would like to take this opportunity to apologize for my recent ineptitude in blogging. I blame these things: internet issues, camera issues, jet lag issues, inbox bloat, GRE preparation, and thesis research. Oh, and my computer had a couple of trojans. No big deal.

First of all, the internet was terrible for almost the entire time I was in the UK, so my grand plan of blogging every day obviously didn’t happen.

Secondly, when I was at the Harry Potter Studio Tour, a friend broke my camera. Simple drop, could have happened to anyone, but it was out of commission. I was tight on cash, so it took me at least a week to get a new one, and I did get some pictures, but they’re in different formats and of vastly different qualities, so I’m going through them and shall deliver the greatest hits in blog posts when I’ve sorted it all out.

As far as inbox bloat, my school email is looking a lot better, but my work email still has hundreds of emails I’ve yet to touch. I cringe every time I think about sifting through it, but I’m plugging along and I hope to be caught up by the end of the week.

As far as GRE prep, I’ll be taking my test at the end of the month, which will then free me up for… applications. Yup. So that might make me even busier, but those will be done in February, so…. count the months?

Thesis will pick up with intensity when I’m back to school and I hope to have regular updates for you on that as it progresses. It will be done well before the end of December, so that’s really not so far off at all. And that’ll free me up for… more applications.

Computer’s clean and behaving remarkably well, so hopefully it stays that way. I just need it to last the year, so keep your fingers crossed for me, and if you have any tips for speeding up a PC, I’d love to hear them.

Lastly, to fill that void, I have reiterated Natalie Cannon’s latest (I know, I’m pathetic in updating) blog entry that she sent to me AGES ago. May she slap me repeatedly when next we meet in the physical world, even though I know she won’t.

And speaking of Natalie, head on over to her blog, Letters to the World, and give her a congratulatory comment, or tweet her @NMCannon. SHE GOT AN INTERNSHIP. Woot. And well-deserved, may I say.

  1. Awwwwwww thank you dear! Haha, I wouldn’t hit you. I may hug so hard you experience brief kidney pain, but that’s because I MISS YOU. It sounds like you’re going to be as busy a bee as ever next year. Have you finalized the list of places you’re going to apply or are you still researching?
