Never fear, friends, I am fine. Just insanely busy, and blogging has not been high on my list of priorities. I do, however, plan to resume a more regular schedule in the coming months.
So what have I been up to? Simple answer . . . Dissertation writing. I am on schedule to defend this Spring, so I am writing assiduously with that goal in mind. This takes up the bulk of my time. 8-5 M-F, and then evenings are reserved for time with my wife and son, and then time to relax after my son goes to bed.
Additionally, this past weekend was Baylor’s preview weekend for prospective Ph.D. candidates, and I was in charge of organizing and arranging the schedule and activities. Needless to say I am glad it is over, but I very much enjoyed doing it, and even more so meeting the prospectives who are interested in Baylor. I have received several very kind notes from some of the prospectives over the last few days, so that is encouraging.
That may not sound like much, but I have poured myself in to this dissertation, and again, I am on target to finish and defend this Spring. I actually plan to be done writing the whole thing by early April. I’m well over 3/4 of the way done, so by April I should be able to have things in final form, and defend shortly thereafter.
Now . . . about a job?!
Hope you all are well!
