I’ve been writing on this site for almost a year. Of course, over the past several months I’ve barely written at all for lack of inspiration and because of my own stifled/stifling creativity. I do, however, now have some good news, at least for myself: I’ve been accepted into a six-week language program in Ukrainian in L’viv, Ukraine; I’ve been awarded a Foreign Language Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowship to pay for the majority of related expenses; and my supervisor has generously agreed to let me have the time off from work to pursue this opportunity. It’s been a long time since I’ve been this happy and optimistic.
