...cue sheepish entrance from stage left...

Of course, it just figures that the only thing motivating me to show my face back here is the fact that I've got a paper to procrastinate about.

Hi, guys!

I'm alive. I'm reading new and exciting things. A lot has happened since I posted last, and most of you have probably moved on to livelier blog-followings, but for anyone who's still holding out, I appreciate you!

It's been a stupidly stressful semester (I usually average maybe 1 panic attack/crying jag per semester of college, and this one has already seen at least 5 - what does that tell you?), but there's been a lot of cool stuff going on, too, so that's OK, I guess. In the meantime, though, I have been trying to brainstorm an appropriate reboot + direction for this blog to take (I am SO open to suggestions), as I would like to get things properly restarted, but I can't quite decide how to proceed. Don't worry, I haven't given up - it's just real life interfering with my cyber-existence.

On the bright side, here are some things you should check out while I pull my act together:

Picasso Mommy - a video documentary about my brilliant and incredibly hardworking Aunt Fran, who is wrestling the challenges of being artist + mom + wife + teacher, and still finding time to sleep (!). It's on the long side, but if this sounds anything like your life/challenges, worth it.

http://www.goodreads.com/ - it's like Facebook for bookworms ... well, sort of. A site to find/share/talk about all manner of good books, and a handy place to list all the things you want to read. I haven't gotten very involved with this community yet, but so far, they're cool people. Check it out.

http://acraftsmansjourney.blogspot.com/ - He used to be a pretentious ass, but he's trying real hard to get better ... Josh's blog has undergone some impressive updates in my absence. You can read a couple of his completed stories there. Also, there are pictures of kitties!

Right, so I'm going to go do work now. But I'll be back. Promise.
Thanks for reading, friends.
