I've been MIA for a while, I know. I'm doing a degree in Creative Writing in my spare time in order to improve my writing, but the unintended side-effect of that is that whenever I have essay deadlines I find myself unable to work on my personal writing. Also winter is actually following the calendar this year - temperatures have taken a nosedive, and I'm well into hibernation mode. No snow yet - that photo there is from 2011, but it wouldn't surprise me if we get some this year. Anyway, I'm all done for semester 1 and I've got five glorious weeks free before semester 2 starts! Except for having to work for a living. Damn.
