a time of magic

I haven’t caught up on the Hour of Devastation stories yet, but I think it’s safe to assume that after handing Bolas his butt, the Gatewatch and Co. spent the rest of the block having lots of nice heartwarming domestic interactions and general light-hearted goofs.

(Also, sorry about the weird formatting, Tumblr is doing something obnoxious where my images come out super blurry when they’re uploaded as an imageset.  And it’s only if they’re in an imageset, and only on the dashboard and not on my actual blog.  The exact same images come out fine if they’re posted on their own—nothing to do with resolution or size, it’s literally just blurrying all images that I post in imagesets.  If anyone can help me at all with this I would super, super, super appreciate it, and may or may not be willing to promise you my firstborn child.)

I’m so tired, you guys. This year has been exhausting, and it’s made me completely change my perspective and prioritize and I consequently feel so disconnected from everything academic. Like I love reading and researching and writing, but does it even matter? I can’t work or write for days on end without succumbing to migraines anymore, like my body just wants me to stop. And it does want me to stop because who is our academic work even going to affect other than other academics working in our narrow little fields? If we teach, then fine, we teach students and make some sort of difference, but also, at least non-academic writing gets to other people. I’m tired, and I just want to focus on A and my family and my friends and building my own world. I want to stay home and make a home full of love and comfort and books, and I want to write things that aren’t just going to be graded and forgotten. I’m obsessed with diamond rings and bugaboos and chubby baby cheeks more than I am with the idea of research right now and all my training has me feeling like I’ve gone wrong somewhere, even though I know I haven’t and that I just want happy things. It’s never been either or for me – I’ve always known that a woman can have a career and a family, but I want the one more than I want the other. I want to focus on family and then write part time. I want home and babies and I know that it’s okay, but there’s still so much guilt. Like this isn’t what the world wanted me to be, but it is what I’ve always wanted. I should be charging forth into a PhD and a career, but I just want to slow down. And I have. But I want to stop feeling like I’ve disappointed everyone else and failed on the academic path.
