I’d like to clear the air.
I never intended my most recent post to signal an impending year-long blogging sabbatical.
At the time, it read like a simple ‘Ms. CQC is having an off day’.
But as time wore on and the page never updated, the sinister title “Nothing to Say” read like a cryptic sign-off. A blogging suicide note.
But it wasn’t.
Despite my best efforts, I don’t have that much forethought. In reality, I got busy.
Like… forgoing basic hygiene and eating nothing but granola bars for days because I’m JUST TOO BUSY, kind of busy.
But now it’s done. I’m no longer in the crazy place. The crazy place has recently been usurped by the lonely place.
I’m still busy, just in a different way… Because now, I’m busy applying for jobs.
Now, I’m unemployed.
This is no surprise, and if you remember the post where I first announced I’d gotten a fancy Ivy League job, I knew that thing was a one year gig.
At the time, I thought it was peeeerrrfect, as I could spend my time exploring ideas, networking, figuring out what to do with my life, and have a new venture ready to go by the time I left the absurdly overgrown ivy walls of academia.
Yet, with all the busy happening, I was unable to get all my ducks in a row.
Despite starting the job applications five months before my termination date, I have yet to get a single phone call, let alone an interview.
Sadly, it’s no longer 1998, and I’m just like every other out-of-work schmuck.
The upshot is that I’m back to blogging!
I have much to catch you up on, my darlings: married life! work life! egomaniacs! cats! gypsies! fake vegetarianism! Learning how to stop worrying and love the bomb!
