Not really "away," but not writing much on here. I'm on twitter quite a bit, and I definitely got to witness the recent shenanigans on Kinja. But I want to say welcome to all of the new contributors.

Also, thank you so much to the mods. I've never needed your services, that I know of, but I know I benefit from your vigilance. Thank you for wading through the shit so I don't have to.

I went to visit my sister for a day in Albuquerque, and we had a blast. I finally got to go to Rebel Donuts, home of the Blue Sky donut. I had a Cookies and Cream donut. It was delicious.

I return to full-time teaching next week, and I'm so excited and nervous. I can't wait to get into a classroom again.

Also, I got a fitbit, so I'm learning to use that.

This is your irregular NameChanged update. How you doin?
