Alive and well in Olympia
I thought this long summer break would be a time of intense online activity, and a time to revive this blog.
It may well be -- but not yet.
I have here for a week and a half, and have been doing anything and everything but using my favorite social networking sites.
Facebook has been serving as communications central for getting together with friends here; I've issued a few tweets, but haven't felt much desire to follow Twitter; I figure I'm going to have to clear my Google Reader when it gets to 1000 unread posts.
Replacing all of this are emails to my family back in France, connecting to my work email platform to check up on how my students are doing on their foreign internships, and some online work on the syllabi for my classes next year.
Of course, plenty of offline stuff is going on: seeing my family and friends, outings to restaurants and shows, reading, watching movies and baseball games...
It's summer and I think I needed a break from all of my routines. But I'm not gone forever.
I hope you are all enjoying your summer as much as I am. I will be back in touch.
