So yeah. I'm still around, just not as much. It was a crazy summer, and it's shaping up to be a busy semester (and probably busy next semester too).
I'm not sure how long it'll take me to get through my messages - probably longer than is fair to anyone, but I honestly get back to my apartment most days and collapse onto the couch to browse shopping websites and fashion blogs to relax.
This semester I'm taking three regular classes (Social Psychology, Intro Neuroscience, and Anthropology of Religion), doing my research/presenting my senior seminar (which I'm excited about, though nervous), and being my anthropology professor's teaching intern/assistant.
That last one is easily the most exhausting, though also really fun at times. Basically, I have to attend all the intro level classes for my section, take notes, hold office hours/supplemental instruction (two hours for each, once a week) if anyone has questions, hold a review session before the test, and teach six mini lectures of ten minutes each this semester, for which I have to do the planning/research.
And there's the possibility that more things will happen soon too, that I'm too afraid of jinxing myself to mention.
Aside from all that, many of my classmates in other areas want my help (and I'm bad at refusing people), so....
I miss dA, and I'm still writing, but my schedule is packed with things I need to do in order to graduate and hopefully get into a good grad program so I can get a PhD and teach one day. I don't know how much time I'll be on here or how often I'll post the things I've written.
The only thing I am promising is that assuming everyone still wants to do it, I'll run Anonymous Annatar again for the Noldorin Icon Family.
That's a high point I look forward to each year, so it'll happen as long as I'm allowed to make it happen.
