There are two topics that I almost never mention on my blog. One is my life at school. The other is my life at church.
Perhaps I don’t talk about these things much because they already take up so much of my life that I don’t need a venue to discuss them. Perhaps I don’t talk about them because I figure no one cares. Perhaps I don’t talk about them just because I don’t want to….
I’m not even sure myself.
But I’ll break my silence and briefly mention that UCI started again this week. And I’m actually looking forward to this quarter–the Fall was a tough 3 months and I got pretty burned out on the whole getting-a-PhD-project. I forgot that I’m supposed to be having fun :)
But I’m back in the saddle now and looking forward to classes, teaching, and above all, research (writing this sitting in my little 5th floor office overlooking Aldrich Park with a stack of primary documents on my desk. There’s nothing like getting up early in the morning and cracking the spine on a hundred year-old book to get the endorphins flowing….).
