When life gets in the way of blogging
For the next couple of weeks, I’ll be blogging less as I’ll be writing final essays and grading my students’ work. I’ll befriend my coffee maker and refuse the advances of my soft, soft pillow. Sometimes life – or, in this case school – gets in the way of blogging.
For some reason, I’m reminded of the time a few years ago when Justin Timberlake was approached by a reporter who asked, “Do you have anything to say about the recent divorce of Britney and Kevin?”
Justin retorted, “Yeah, there’s a war going on in Iraq.”
Now, I’m not implying that my academic life is anything like the Iraq war (although some parallels could be drawn!). What I am saying is that sometimes life becomes so big you can’t do anything but focus on that. So, as much as I want to talk about my pseudo-dates, delicious coffee shop encounters, and flirtatious friends, I need to focus on my work. That’s why I’m here, after all.
I hope to blog a little this weekend, and maybe even a little next week. But for now, it’s just me and my cardamom coffee.
P.S. Speaking of Justin Timberlake, I recently re-discovered this song and have had it on repeat in my iTunes playlist, to listen to as I write. Enjoy!
