I’ve been pretty MIA on this blog recently. It’s not for any good reason. Nope. In fact it’s a string of boring and rather mundane reasons.
I had to make a new passport application. We had a book club meeting (Buddha in the Attic). I went to Prague for a long weekend and then I needed a week to recover from my long weekend.
I’ve been re-reading both Pride and Prejudice and The Unbearable Lightness of Being for school and the combination of reading and teaching these two books at the same time makes me both happy and hopeful as well as a depressed and certain that life is meaningless.
So I decided that I should also start reading the novel Beautiful Ruins. I don’t think that I love it but I am only 47% of the way in and I’ve been reading it before I fall asleep at night which means I have to do plenty of re-reading as I can never remember what I read the night before.
I’ve been out to dinner (and drinks) with friends more than normal. This past weekend I had Indian food at Saffron in Studentskigrad, I went to Blender club for drinks, I played a few games of pool (and I was horrible at it–like usual) and I’ve eaten pizza out twice in the last week.
I’ve planned sprig break, a long holiday in May and most of my summer travel. There’s still a short weekend in May that I need to figure out but I figure that there’s time for that. Maybe I’ll go to Athens. Maybe not. I really want to go to Kiev but there aren’t any good flights.
So this is just to say, don’t worry about me. I am doing okay. My laundry is clean, my dishes are washed, I’ve got food in my fridge and I’m getting plenty of sleep. It just turns out that I done all of this at the expense of my blog recently. I guess these things happen.
I hope that everyone else is having a great week!!
