After a lot of deep soul searching, I suspended this semesters studies at Cornell. It wasn’t an easy decision. But for the last few weeks I’ve felt stretched to the maximum. The eight hours of commuting time was an absolute killer. I was also *just barely* keeping up with the reading. Add onto that trying to do a good job at RIT and being able to support Drea — well something just had to give. And Cornell was that something.

It was a difficult decision. The right decision, but difficult none the less.

I’m going to try to keep on my reading schedule. I mean, I bought the books! And I’ll be reading them next year. So I might as well get on it and start my immersion in those texts. Especially since I’m hoping to continue researching throughout this year.
