Within the last week, I decided to take a leave of absence next semester to take care of myself. I won’t go too deep into it, but long story short: if I went into next semester as I am (even with the 1-month winter break) things would not go well. So, I’m taking a step back to get myself and my life in order. That said, my winter plans are completely up in the air. I’m hoping to spend enough time to finish drafting and hopefully revising (and maybe even editing) Unmoored so I can publish it soon.
In the meantime, I’m busy writing 2 final papers and studying for 3 final exams. I’ve gotten a jump start on one of the papers (the draft is already done), but I still have quite a lot of work ahead of me.
