I thought that by I might be done with posting pictures from our trip to Germany, but I'm far from done. (Lucky you!)
But I thought I should take a break from writing about our trip because there is a burning issue I need to write about.
We are moving. On WEDNESDAY. That's in, like, three days!!! Oh Baltimore, I hardly knew ye. And now we are parting so quickly and with such little fanfare.
No worries though, I'll be back several times before I'm really gone for good. In fact, I might even be back in about a week. And then a couple weeks after that. At the very least. So I haven't really been writing about moving because there's been so much else going on.
No really, it's true.
You should see our apartment. It hardly looks like we're moving because until tonight, we had hardly packed anything. The next two days are going to be rather exhausting.
The other major thing I've been occupied with, besides the wedding which certainly took its fair share of time, is my dissertation. I need to finish it up asap, and I'm making progress. But it's painful. In fact, the past couple years have been really painful, and ... well, maybe I'll write about it sometime. But not until I'm done with it and can sit back and think about it without totally falling apart.
So I am looking forward to moving. And to the new job. And new city. Hopefully all these recent and upcoming life changes will emphatically mark a new and healthier outlook on life.
Starting with the little things, here's an issue that I've been mulling over for a while now and haven't come to any decisions about... what should I do about the name of my blog??? I am not sure I am ready to rename it! But at the same time, isn't it strange (and misleading) to keep calling it BaLtiMoRe RoLL? I thought about changing it to PhiLLy RoLL, and then if (or more likely, when) I move again, I could name it after the next city. I kind of like that idea, and I think the only reason I'm resisting PhiLLy RoLL is because that's pretty much the one sushi roll I actually don't like (smoked salmon and cream cheese). Anyway, if I do change the name of the blog, I would still keep the name "seadragon" (you know, to maintain my tiny shred of anonymity).
What do you think? Any suggestions?
