In between

So far, I don't seem to be a very good blogger.

I set up this blog in September 2010 with great ambitions. I love writing - it's not a chore. Between writing academically (for 27 undergraduate and 7 graduate courses in English - thus far), writing journalistically, and writing creatively, it's something I'm rather fond of. But the idea of "blogging" poses a strange challenge for me: something in between. Greater than the short, pithy, quips/observations/statements of a Facebook status, and less than the reviews and papers I've grown accustomed to churning out.

My friend, who is a pretty adept blogger, as far as my meager knowledge permits me to judge, gave me some advice about brevity - writing something short and targeted enough that someone may actually be able to read it. So that's the plan. I'm going to make a summer project of writing some blogs to record and capture my third (and likely final - for now D:) semester in Montreal before I relocate back to the Rock.

I'm very in between right now - in between provinces, in between studenthood and the looming uncertainty of my next move (something I'm not particularly familiar with, being a chronic planner), in between life phases, in between meals.

Back to Montreal on Monday - it's a very exciting time to be a post-secondary student in Quebec and I can't wait to get back there.
