I've been scarce the last few months. Okay, more than scarce. I know. I KNOW, I know, but listen--its because of GRADUATE SCHOOL. Apparently the people who made up graduate school decided they actually wanted students to WORK while they were there. Imagine that. I don't know where the people who made up undergraduate school and the people who made up graduate school separated paths, but boy is there a HUGE difference now.*
Anyway, thats why I haven't been around lately. Grad school stuff. Awful of me, I know. But here's some consolation: I'm excited to write in this blog more often this semester. My course load isn't nearly as frightening, and I'm committing. Really. The nonfiction course I took last semester turned out to be a pretty good thing, and while I'm still focusing on fiction, I might use this blog as my "creative nonfiction" outlet every once in a while. So . . . expect greatness.
And, in the spirit of Christmas, here is some more consolation (in the form of youtube videos that talk about how awful graduate students are, as a race):
Enjoy, and its safe to say that you'll hear a lot more from me over the break.
* Yeah, apparently a bunch of people just MADE UP the whole college/university thing. True story. I read it on the internet. You'd be surprised at how much "serious" stuff we take for granted nowadays--that apparently matters--that was just made-up in the first place.
