Some indefinite plans

The semester ended with the Third Act of Maxim Gorky’s The Lower Depths. From here on, my days will be spent checking students’ papers, completing essays in my master’s class, and reading books that have piled up in my room. In the next few weeks, however, I shall be embarking on a journey to a totally new place, and hopefully, the hiatus will give me enough time to recuperate from the bashing and thrashing of the last ten months and ruminate on future plans, where to head next, and whether happiness can still be had from what I presently have.
