I haven't blogged in almost two weeks. That's gotta be some kind of record for me. And it's not really because I've been busy. The only "productive" thing I've accomplished since returning from Oxford is packing up what little stuff my mom hadn't already moved into my new place and driving to Austin on Wednesday. Everything is unpacked and in its proper place, and I can breathe easy.

The last few days have been about settling in and getting use to my semi-familiar, semi-new surroundings. Seeing old friends and catching up for hours at a time. (Or days, in our case.) Mentally preparing myself before the school semester begins again.

I'm not going to lie...  It's been wonderful, this little hiatus of mine. A few weeks in limbo was exactly what I needed.
