It's a little sad to realize that, roughly 15 months since I switched my website over to Drupal, this is only my 66th node... which includes several static pages, some backdated entries from my livejournal, and some unpublished and deleted posts. I really need to blog more, both here and at gnovis.
my existential angst
While I'm trying to focus on strictly academic and analytic topics on this site, it's inevitable - particularly during the summer, when I'm out of school - that some of my posts will end up being about my life. Such as this one.
After a brutally exhausting first year in graduate school, I've been looking for an excuse to slow down, at least in terms of my coursework. The financial pressure to put in more hours at work has played a role, as well. Well, turns out it would be a number of forces that would lead me to reduce my coursework... but that hardly means I won't be frantically busy.
as usual, i'm in a panic about what to do with my life. i think i'm close to working through it, for now, but i still wanted to articulate things a bit here, because it's always helpful.
I've decided to start blogging about the papers I've written in grad school, after letting them sit on a shelf for a few months. I like this idea for several reasons...
First, it gives me something tangible to point friends and family towards, even though I haven't published any papers yet (and probably won't, during my masters, because my affiliation with the journal most likely to publish me prevents me from submitting papers).
