Summer Sabbatical

Hi, everyone. Averry here hitting the pause button on Garrosh for one of my programming updates.

I’m going to be taking a few weeks off from blogging while I juggle a fairly packed summer schedule.

Originally, I’d convinced myself that I could forge on ahead with the blog through the middle of the summer, but over the last couple of weeks it’s become pretty clear that that wasn’t a very realistic plan. As many of you know — and many more of you can probably infer — I’m a teacher by trade, and I’m in the midst of teaching a fairly intensive summer program. Surprisingly, I’ve discovered that spending 6-7 hours, six days a week, teaching a room full of 13-year-olds, with an hour commute on either side, actually doesn’t leave me bursting with energy for my creative pursuits at the end of the day! Go figure, huh? (Or, as Garrosh the Earth Online teacher might say, “HOLD ON, HOLD ON, WHAT DID THOSE LITTLE SNOTNOSES DO TO MY ENERGY BAR? GODDAMMIT, WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT?!”) I could keep pushing through, but that would ultimately turn the blog into more of a chore than the pleasure it normally is, which I’m sure would also cause the quality of posts to suffer. So, rather than make everyone sit around wondering when Averry’s going to get off his ass and post something, then getting a mediocre product when I do, I figure it makes more sense simply to take a few weeks off to tend to real life.

So, here begins a short vacation for the WCB. Garrosh’s next mailbag, originally scheduled for August 3, will be September 7 instead (feel free to flood my mailbox with letters during the break!). I’ll be back with more silliness (and occasional torment) in late August… at which point I may have a surprise or two in the works. SSSHHH, IT’S A SURPRISE. YOU’LL SEE. MAYBE.

Thanks as always for reading, commenting, tweeting, emailing, and otherwise making this fit of tomfoolery into the fun time that it’s been so far. Enjoy the summer, and the Warchief and I will be back soon!

 

Be seeing you,

Averry
