A Declaration

It’s decided: I love summer break. I am working just as much as I do during the semester, and I have just as many projects, but I get to camp out in a Brooklyn cafe three blocks from home and let Australian baristas make my coffee and watch people walk by as I pound out my thousands of words, and I won’t lie: that definitely beats a cramped, noisy shared office on the fifteenth floor of a certain landmark building that can’t seem to maintain phone service, working elevators, and hot water all at once.

Academia has major benefits. It’s worth the paper-grading stretches.
