Well, it has been a second year of blogging for Ish Ism. Yes, my first blog post was April 1st, 2012. This second year was clearly harder for me than the first year. They say life has seasons… and this season was a stressful one for me.
1.) I am in my third year of graduate school studying for a comprehensive exam. Studying for the exam takes a lot of time, and I am actually taking it March 31st to April 3rd. So… as this auto post goes up, I am in the middle of a brutal exam. To survive the exam I am fully stocked with coffee, coffee cream, bread, lunch meat, coffee, swiss cheese, coffee, chocolate milk, Soft Batch Cookies, peanuts, and coffee.
2.) I became a foster parent… which apparently also needs coffee.
3.) I am the director of a new blog about food studies. Which, when combined with the other two… needs coffee.
Foster parenting + directing a blog + graduate school + comprehensive exam + marriage = little time for blogging and lots of stress. But by the end of June I will be done with directing the food studies blog, and finished with the comprehensive exam. Thank you to those who continue to drop by even as my blogging has become less regular.
Anyway, following are my top ten favorite posts from my second year of blogging! Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day.
10.) Reblog from my Wife’s Blog “Things I have actually had to say”
