It has been a fun ride, but (as you have no doubt noticed by my lack of updates) this blog has become a casualty of my packed schedule. Rather than just having it lie dormant and unresolved, I'm opting to bring it to an official and bittersweet end.
Why bittersweet? Well, I've enjoyed blogging the past few years. I always tell my students that writing is like a cheap form of therapy, and this blog saw me through a lot of crazy times during my doctoral work. However, all good things must come to an end, and as I start a different phase of my life, it just makes sense to say goodbye to this. Depending on my schedule, I could envision myself having a blog in the future, but it would definitely have a different focus (and would be found at a different web address). If this does happen, I will post information here. You are also welcome to follow me on Twitter (@sweeks1980).
Thank you for taking the time to read this (and any of my posts). Getting comments always brightened my day!
