I had a million things that I've been wanting to post about, but then life spiraled out of control and now I'm afraid I can't spare even a small sliver of my brain to devote to this blog. What's going on? There's the fact that I'm moving in two weeks. And my grandmother is in the hospital. And I'm going to Iowa to see friends graduate in two days. And there have been two hate crimes and a student death at Grinnell. Add to that life's small injustices (an ant invasion in my bathtub, the fact that I'm pretty sure I'm lactose intolerant, and a nurse at the hospital asking me if I'm still in high school), and my plate overfloweth, and not in a good way. Hopefully I will be back here in June, after the move is over, with better news about my family and my alma mater and the state of the world in general. Until then, I'll be spending a lot of time pretending that I'm taking a nap in a field of wildflowers.
