I’ve been suffering a little writer’s block lately when it comes to the blog. As you might imagine, not being in lab eliminates most of the previous blog fodder. So, I need to find other things to talk about, I suppose. The thing is, this blog mostly has an identity as a “disgruntled grad student” blog. Now that I’m not so much disgruntled (does that make me gruntled?) I’m not sure where this blog fits in my life and the blogging community at large.
This is almost certainly related to the fact that I don’t know where I fit in society anymore. I don’t have a job. I’m still technically a grad student but I’m not in classes or in lab or even on campus. I’m writing my thesis, but slowly so as not to overwhelm myself and what does that really mean anyway? I mean, I have a really bad feeling that if I got all gung ho and tried to work on my thesis more for than an hour on any one day, I might collapse into a depression. Am I just paranoid or is this really a valid concern? I don’t know.
So, posting may be light while I try to get a handle on things. Maybe I should try something simple like twitter. Surely, I could manage 140 characters or less on a semi-regular basis?
