Here Endeth the Hiatus

I won't gush about how its been SOOO long since the last time I posted, nor will I make any promises about when I'll post again next.  I think it's safe to say that there is hardly anything safe to say when it comes to that sort of thing.

All that being said, here is a list of what's been keeping me busy this summer:

  • Graduate Thesis, or, more accurately, my "Thesis Proposal" for what will one day be a collection of short stories.  Or so I'm told.  Or so I keep telling myself, anyway.
  • Going to Hawaii.  Mostly Kauai, to be specific, which happens to be one of the most beautiful places on earth.  And also Oahu.
  • My wife's sister getting married in LA.
  • My sister getting married in Alaska.
  • Family
  • Reading books.  Unfortunately, not as many as I would like.  I've read about 25ish books this year--woefully short of my goal (around 60).
  • Getting ready for Renovation--my first Worldcon, which I'm pretty excited about.
  • Starcraft II.  For the swarm, indeed.
  • Watching Alias.
  • Getting a new computer.  (Which I'm hoping will up my productivity--or, again, so I keep telling myself.)
  • Teaching freshmans how to write good.
So there you have it.  Will I post again in the near future?  Only time will tell.  I may talk about my first year of grad school.  I may talk about how my writing is going.  I may talk about Zerg strategies in SC2.  I may even talk about ballroom dancing.  Until then--keep it real, and keep it simple.  Keep it real simple.
