My extended absence has been triggered by a multitude of things. Initially, I was just feeling uninspired. During the break I got caught up in the comfort of being home and BOD, sadly, became an afterthought. As I enter the next two weeks full of finals, portfolios, and presentations, I'll do my best to get back on board, but I hesitate to make any promises. Know, however, that I have been thinking of you and have not attempted to make a stealthy exit from my blogging duties!
