As you can tell, things have been slow around here lately. This has probably been the longest this blog has gone without a post since its inception.

Spending the entire summer working on my graduate dissertation (a constructivist reading of American state-building in Iraq and Afghanistan, if you were interested) took a great deal of my mental state away from writing for the sheer joy of it. Even posting a roundup of other pieces by fellow bloggers seemed daunting.

I have started teaching back in California as of last week all while working on another graduate degree in education in the afternoons and evenings. Getting used to this new, busy schedule has been physically and mentally draining.

I do plan to continue writing here however, and I have a few pieces rummaging around my head away at this very moment. Expect regular posting to return next week or so.
