...I am still here. Also, yes, graduate school is going well. Down to my last semester and the fiery whirlwind that is student teaching: five days a week in the classroom of an experienced Japanese teacher who, to her great credit, has already demonstrated saintly patience by consenting to take me on in the first place*. I offer my advance apologies and well-wishes to both H-sensei and her classes; this will be a profound learning experience for me, and I sincerely beg for your forgiveness when the inevitable mistakes arise. Yoroshiku onegai itashimasu. m(-_-)m
No, I am not entirely done with blogging forever. I am deeply enamored with Weebly for future online publications, however, and I'll be sure to let folks know when I start producing said publications again. (Hint: not likely until May.)
In the meantime, I wish you all a fortuitous beginning to 2014! Akemashite omedetou gozaimasu! May all of your own endeavors be successful and deeply satisfying, and your understanding of the universe only ever increase in wonder.
*... as have my two previous IMTs, although they only had to contend with my silliness one day of each week, which should technically have been 80% more manageable. Watakushi no sensei-tachi no mina-sama, itsumo o sewa ni narimashita yo! Made ganbatteimasu! ;_;
