No, not because Condalmo favorite Remainder got eliminated today. (It must be said, though – I thought Wiggins got faint praise, and McCarthy got a bunch of sour grapes. But I enjoy Liberman’s Language Log, and appreciate his willingness to part with the book – e-mail me for my address, Mr. Liberman. I’ll give that little orphan a good home. Condalmo’s the name, Gmail’s my game.)
The hiatus is because of my upcoming exam. I don’t think I’ve talked about it much here, but my graduate degree is in clinical counseling (and rehabilitation counseling – largely work around assisting people with disabilities in employment – though my interests fall more in the clinical field) and I’ve got my licensing exam coming up shortly. Private practice as a therapist (mental health, possibly specializing in elder issues) is the eventual goal. First, the exam, and then we’ll see what comes next. So things are going to go quiet – no, really – around here for a while, while I direct my attention to the studies. It’s been some time since I was in school, so I want to be thorough in my reviewing.
I’ll be checking my e-mail periodically (Mr. Liberman) but will be avoiding fiction, this site, and my Google Reader. Especially the reader. It just ate twenty minutes of my evening. Back, you monster!
