Delays again

Six weeks goes by pretty fast, especially when you’re prepping an outside lecture,┬ádoing normal class prep, and extensive gambling (the proper term for wasting weeks of my life on unsuccessful job applications/interviews, a ton of work/stress with nothing to show for the effort in the end).

That said, in the week between now and my departure for Europe I hope to do a bit of writing here: a recap of my year teaching US History (for the first time), a few thoughts on freshman composition (thanks to the aforementioned “gambling”, something I spent a lot of time thinking about over the past month), and maybe even a bit from those lectures I’m writing for the trip. We’ll see if I get around to some translating. If nothing else, I will be taking my notebook on the trip, and if I have a chance to sit at a cafe in Budapest and write, I may come back with a few more ideas for posting in between packing boxes of books. As of right now, I will have plenty of free time next year…
