I am so exhausted. Not because I have a ton of work for grad school (which I do), but just because it seems like since I moved here my emotions have hopped on a roller coaster. I’m either ‘super duper this is the best thing ever’ or ‘dear god, why are there no cute boys and I sound like a twelve-year-old in Russian and I don’t care about public policy so why do I have to take a class on it’ with no in between.

Tiring, no?

As I mentioned earlier, the whole book blogging thing is helping ground me, lol. But since I have to snatch time to read blogs, I haven’t been commenting as much as a usually do. So think of this as a heartfelt comment/thank you to everyone!

In the meantime, I think I’m going to need to develop a little more structure for my blog, in order to help me post regularly. And avoid turning this into a confessional! hehe

    I see on your sidebar that you’re reading Gordimer’s A Sport of Nature, just finished this one so will be very curious to hear your thoughts. It’s one of her more difficult novels, I believe, but I liked a lot of what she was trying to do.
    And don’t worry – what a huge, great, fun new experience you’ve just jumped into! – things will work out!

    Go ahead and use it as a confessional. Why not? :-) I don’t know where you get the energy to do what you do. Sending hugs for the rough times. . . :-)

    I completely empathise! Things will calm down as you settle in more and start to love all the different things about your new home. It just takes time. We all know how exhausting it can be when you are so busy and undergoing such a big change. Best wishes!

    I’m with Lezlie…confess away. Especially if it helps you feel better, which I tend to think it does. Hope the extreme highs and lows start moderating a bit as you really get into the swing of things. (And don’t worry about commenting…everyone realizes that life sometimes gets in the way.) Take care of yourself, Eva!

    Thank you for keeping on posting! I heart you and your blog. I’d be a sad penguin if you stopped blogging. Stay strong. We’ll support you!

    Any change is difficult even though it’s a positive change. It takes a lot out of you emotionally and physically. So, be kind to yourself and be patient. It’ll get better!

    It all sounds quite tiring, so go easy on yourself, Eva!

    Verbivore, I’m definitely finding it difficult!

    Lezlie, aww: thanks!!

    Mariel, thanks for the support. :D

    Debi, I hope they’ll moderate!

    Nikki, awwwwww: that was the sweetest comment ever. :D

    Lisa, thanks for the advice! I keep reminding myself to be patient, but it’s good to hear it from other people too. :)

    Tara, I’m trying to make sure I have downtime!

Thank you for commenting! For a long while, my health precluded me replying to everyone. Yet I missed the conversation, so I'm now making an effort to reply again. It might take a few days though, and there will be times when I simply can't. Regardless, I always read and value what you say.
