Only a couple days after I moved in, my roommate's internet services were turned off. The wireless was in the former roommate's name, and she had moved out, so eventually it was turned off - and we have to wait for ten days before it's sent to collections and it's turned back on. That's why I've been away from the computer. This site is (for the best) locked at school, as are most of the sites I seem to need these days. I've been able to get comments, but unable to respond, and it's only now that I've been able to get away to a library to get some internet type of errands done.
I've missed blogging. Just yesterday, I was talking about a line in Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God with my sophomores: "Janie, full of that oldest human longing - self revelation" and came to realize how much I did miss these missives to the internet. At the same time, it's no secret that scrolling through the archives reveals much better blogging/writing in the past (especially back when I called it journaling) than I've produced lately, so perhaps a break every now and then isn't a bad idea.
Indeed, I've also been incredibly busy lately - coaching every day until 6:30, rides home until 8 or so, finishing my grades, getting the classroom cleaned up for spring break, moving, unpacking, continuing to clean the old place, trying to get all the errands done that I need to do - so time away from the internet helped in those manners. Plus, I found myself actually sitting down and watching TV on occasion, especially during a memorable Thursday night last week in which I watched an entire marathon of The Office on NBC and fell in love with the show.
I leave for Costa Rica on Easter Sunday, so this could very well be my last update until April 15 or so, when I return.
William's surgery is probably occurring as I type this. It was set for Friday morning. Continued good thoughts and prayers to him, please.
