New Year, New...Year.

My last post was last year! Crazy.

Some things have happened. I went to NYC (again) and then visited the fam-bam for 3 weeks. I got another tattoo, ate a whole lot of food, tried to relax, had a TERRIBLE trip back to Lugano (seriously over 24 hours of travelling) and then tried to get my circadian rhythm back on track. It's still a work in progress.

I really hoped that my trip back to the U.S. would give me some energy and clarity, allowing me to get back to the grind and attack my dissertation with renewed vigor. Unfortunately, that hasn't been the case this first week back...

I have two trips coming up; the first is to Coimbra, Portugal and the second is to Uppsala, Sweden. I'll be taking care of administrative stuff for the master's program my boss and I coordinate in Coimbra, and attending a week-long seminar on discourse theory in Uppsala. Those are things to look forward to. I'm also going to be giving a presentation on my research (?) in Coimbra after the administrative meeting, so hopefully my next update will have nice pictures and a more positive vibe.
