A Bunch Of Stuff That Happened

Filed under: Personal — by teofilo @ 5:23 pm

So, um, yeah.  I haven’t been around the blogosphere much, for a variety of reasons that I might as well discuss now.  Last things first, my computer broke down on Thursday and since then I’ve had to go to campus to use the lab, which obviously cuts down on the amount of recreational internet time I have.  This has actually been really good for me, since it’s freed me from distractions so that I can work on the things that I really should have been working on for months now (like, say, my thesis).  It’s really remarkable how much work I’ve gotten done in the past few days.

Of course, that only explains my absence from blogs for the past few days, when I’ve actually been largely gone for weeks now.  That’s due mainly to my insanely busy schedule during that time, starting with our conference (which, as I mentioned, went really well) and continuing with Spring Break and a whirlwind trip home, then another conference that next weekend, then a trip to visit family the weekend after that.  All of this was really great, but it left no time at all for blogs.

As a result of all this, I’ve fallen way behind on blogs and I have no intention of even trying to catch up.  I’ll still read the ones I like best, but I’m not going to obsessively follow the comment threads the way I used to, and I won’t be as frequent a commenter as I was in the past.  This doesn’t really have anything to do with the feelings of alienation I had talked about a while ago; I do still like blogs and blog people, I’m just not able to maintain the level of participation in this world that I had kept up before.

So that’s what’s up with me, in case anyone’s been wondering.  I’m doing fine (in fact, I’m doing great, and may do another post soon explaining why), I just can’t devote as much time to blogs as I used to.  And, to be honest, I was devoting way too much time to blogs and not enough to other things for a long time there.  I think this arrangement is better.

  3. Well, unfogged was the only blog I ever read really closely. I posted a comment asking about your family there. Since you probably won’t catch it now, I just want to say that I hoped you had a good spring break with your family and am glad to hear that all is well.

  4. Thanks, BG. I still read Unfogged when I can, but I can only check in a couple times a day at most and don’t have time to wade through all the really long threads. If I do post in a thread I will check back on it the next time I come by, so I will see comments in response to mine, but it may be a while before I can respond.

  5. But more on that later.

    We’ll have seven posts on your electronics purchases beforehand, yes?

  6. As you can see, no. I may well have to buy a new computer soon, though.
