... and also one from almost everything 'fun'. No more reading from the 'bookshelves of doom' or punishing the liver. Not even anymore reading while punishing my liver. The time of The Great Buckling Down is nearly at hand. I am only one day away from formally submitting my thesis proposal. I will be spending nearly all of my time researching and collecting data about 'The Effects of a 15 -20 Minute Silent Reading Session on the Writing Scores of Fifth Grade Students'. Anyhow what this means is that I am going to do my damnedest to finish reading and reviewing/responding to The Pelbar Cycle before my obligations catch up to me.
All that means in a very short amount of time I will shutter this blog until the summer (worst case scenario) or will perhaps only post once or twice as I give myself a reward/break (best case scenario). It won't be an easy thing either. The bookshelves of doom are in the office here and the temptation to procrastinate will always be there. So four more books and then it's nose to the grindstone.
