Okay, I can’t honestly say that March blew in like a lion — more like an irritable lion cub. We haven’t had a lot of winter weather, but the sky has been completely gray for five days straight with no sun whatsoever. I’m so pale, that I swear I could audition for a part in a teenage vampire movie. Except that I don’t look like a teenager. I really, really need some sun.
I spent this past weekend glued to my desk, trying to get caught up with my work for school. It wasn’t a fun weekend, but now I feel like I can face March and the weeks before spring break.
I won’t be at AWP this year, although I’m certainly envious of those of you who will be…safe travels to all and make sure you have a great time! A lot of new books are coming out in time for the big event, and I have already ordered my copies – many should be on my doorstep soon.
I am, however, going to this June’s Working Class Studies Conference that will be held in Madison, Wisconsin. One proposal has been accepted, and another is pending. I have attended two of these conferences before, and I’m really looking forward to this year’s program.
Onward, March! (No pun intended)
