Life knocked me off my platforms
So I pulled out my first pair of boots
Bought on the street at Astor Place
Before New York was run by suits
And I suited up for the long walk
Back to myself
Closer to the ground now
— Ani DiFranco
Has it really been over a month since I’ve written? Did anyone miss me?
Today is the last day of my spring break. I’m not ready to return to classes. [Though I am semi-excited about teaching my one class a lesson for calling my class “too feminist.”] I’ve been sick for the past week, and I haven’t done a thing aside from rest, really. Which is good. But I have a super long to-do list that I haven’t addressed at all. I haven’t even really read anything, aside from a little bit of Exam reading. Ugh.
Other than the sickness, life is good. OK, well, weird, really. Hence the Ani quote above. But I think things are looking up. I think. We’ll see.
OK. Time to be a good housewife and get dinner ready.
