Life Post: Long Time No See

Long time no see. I've been saying that to my students a lot lately, and it's fitting here too since I haven't really written anything here since the beginning of May.

Like I mentioned in that post, we reopened but were teaching online classes. A couple of weeks ago, we began teaching some in person classes, and this week we'll finally be teaching all classes in person again.

It's been a bit of a whirlwind, and I've been coping by writing and reading whenever possible. To say that I've been a bit exhausted lately would be an understatement. There's so much going on that just keeping up with the news can be draining.

Since I last posted, the Black Lives Matter movement is being talked about more again, and J.K. Rowling dug her hole even deeper. A lot of my reading recently has been related to those two topics as well, and I've been having a lot of conversations about them as well.

That's everything happening that I can really talk about I think, but there's been a lot happening.

I spent a lot of today tag wrangling over on the AO3. People are still writing a lot of fic due to the pandemic, so the bins are always plentiful. I've also made a lot of progress on writing today, which has been awesome.

Here's to an awesome upcoming week. I can only hope.
