Blah. I’m back. It’s nice to be home so I don’t have to worry about the drive, or the roads. I don’t have to worry about my plants needing water, or pipes bursting. Still, I miss being home with my family. I miss the little dog, and of course I miss the sheep. I miss the heat from the wood stove and having people to cook for. How can I have more of that here in my own life so to speak? Unfortunately, I can’t seem to figure it out. All I see is the solitude, the laptop, the piles of textbooks to read, the coursework, the exams, and long dissertations to write. Blah.
I had to keep in mind that I always suffer from burnout this time of year. Things usually start getting better in the spring. And after a long summer break, I’ll be ready to go again in the fall. This is just the worst time for me as an academic.
