Perhaps many people who have spent their lives on an academic schedule would agree that the advent of September and Labor Day weekend feels like New Year’s Eve. We all have brand new things: new clothes and shoes, clean notebooks, fresh pens and pencils, and hope in the potential of another school year. I’m not sure about anyone else, but I even make some ‘resolutions’ for the new year. I always promise that my syllabuses will be organized and clear, my papers will be graded on time, and my sarcasm will not reach full force until at least the end of October, and will be directed only to the toughest students who can take it.
While this is a very exciting time of year, it is also quite hectic. An added component is my inclusion in T’s wedding this weekend, 500 miles away from my home. Because this coming week will present me with many things that will all demand my attention, I will be giving myself a brief hiatus from blogging. In other words, I’m taking the week off! I’ll return on Monday, the 12th of September, fresh-faced and bushy-tailed. Okay, probably a little wan-faced and scraggly-tailed, but still ready to be back.
It can be a difficult thing to get back into full-swing after having had a relatively slow, languid summer. Sometimes it is difficult to deal with the stress of suddenly being pulled in ten different directions at the same time. Luckily, I’ve gotten some very wonderful, supportive comments from a few of my very closest friends. I thought I’d share some of these in case you too, dear readers, are dealing with back-to-school stress.
First, I was really grateful when the always insightful Sex Dating promised to follow me: “Keep up this good work, and you have a nice blog over here with much good information,” he or she said. “When you post some new stuff, I’ll visit your blog again and I’ll follow it.” And his or her twin, Sex Hub Mobile, said, “you’re in point of fact a just right webmaster. The website loading velocity is amazing. It seems that you are doing any unique trick. Also, The contents are a masterpiece. you have done a excellent activity on this subject.” No, Sex Hub Mobile, your contents are a masterpiece!
Sex Dating must have told his/her friends about me, because just a few minutes later, I got a similar message from Rij Bewijs that said, “It’s a nice blog you have over here! It’s very usefull information for me and I just want to thank you for that! If you post more threads as this one, I’ll follow your blog active!”
It’s so nice to reach people.
It was also fantastic to know that at least three – three! – people wanted to share my writing on their newsletter. In fact, they each sent me the same message. “Outstanding article not to mention very easy towards realize explanation. How do I just do receiving permission towards submit element of this content with my future news letter? Giving suitable consumer credit rating back to you typically the author not to mention link in the web site would not be considered trouble.”
I’m glad it wouldn’t be considered trouble to share my work, because I’d never want to cause any trouble to my new cyber buddies Leopoldo, Darrel, and Geraldine. They’re just all so supportive, all wanting to publish my work in their newsletter. It was just the good news I was looking for!
What’s even better than being told that I have good information in my articles, or that my post will be published in a newsletter, is when others believe I should actually be paid! Yuriko just sent me this bombshell: ” It’s a good shame you don’t contain a give money button! I’d definitely give money for this fantastic website! That i suppose right now i’ll acknowledge bookmarking together with attaching an individual’s Feed that will my best Msn balance. That i appearance forward that will recent messages and definitely will share the web site utilizing my best Facebook or twitter team.”
Some of the kindest words came from Hotshot Bald Cop, who actually commented on several of my posts, just to make sure I would get the message. First, he/she made me smile by saying, “Interesting views regarding that!” Later, it expressed its support for me when it told me to “Preach it my brother!” To be honest, I read this comment and felt a little confused. I felt the same way as I did one day when I saw a very handsome man waving at me on the street. I was thrilled until I realized his wife was standing right behind me. I felt maybe Hotshot Bald Cop had meant to post on a different blog, one actually written by a ‘brother’. But then I remembered that she has such a kooky sense of humor that she’s probably just joking around with me, trying to get me to cheer up and laugh a little.
That theory was confirmed when he left two more wonderful comments: “You my pal are a genius.” and “Now that is some magnificent literature!” Good ol’ Hotshot! How could I have doubted you?
Last but not least, I have the most precious comment of all from one of my dearest, dearest supporters, Anonymous, who said, “Tgw Fyf gcwrjrzxonqu [url=http://rznyfsbzzqr…/] rznyufsbzzqr [url…],,[link=http//vmcwyjayntkg.net////] vmcwyjanytgbio/link,,http”
I mean, how could you not feel better after such wise words?
And so, armed with encouraging words and a healthy appreciation for the absurd, I leap into the fray. I wish you all a wonderful Labor Day weekend and good luck in dealing with your own New Year’s Resolutions!
