So, I am currently up to my eyebrows in ancient Greek history assignments written by clueless first-years (note to anyone in my tutorial groups who’s reading this: obviously I don’t mean you; I mean all the other clueless first-years in the class), and will continue to be for some time, as well as having all of my own work to do (which, I will remind you, is SERIOUS SCHOLARLY RESEARCH of a totally non-fake variety), and I also need to figure out where the heck I’m going to go to do my MA (or MSc, it sort of depends on a lot of stuff) next year.
What this all adds up to is that I need a break. And it is quite possibly going to be a long one. As in, it may be, like, two months before my life settles back into enough of a semblance of normality that I can return to my usual three-day update schedule.
Now, two months is quite a while, and I don’t want to leave this place totally abandoned for that whole time, so I am going to try to post stuff now and then… just not regularly, or often. It might not even be about Pokémon, necessarily, but I’ll be sure to tie it in somehow; I’m surprisingly good at dragging Pokémon into discussions on other topics. I will also continue answering any questions people send me – if you’ve been reading for a while, you should be able to guess at the kind of questions that will provoke a lengthy response, so if you get bored waiting for me to say something you can totally just prod me and see what happens.
I do sincerely mean to go back to a regular update schedule eventually. I just sort of have to prioritise my real-life academic career over my pseudo-academic Pokémon-related internet ramblings… at least until I get some of my actual work done.
