Hello guys and gals! There is one thing I just want to quickly address before we move on with our regular blogging schedule, and that is replying to comments. I try my best to respond to each and every comment, but sometimes it just isn't feasible. I don't want you guys to think I am ungrateful or rude, because I do read and appreciate everything you write to me. It gives me the fuel to go on, actually. But as I've accepted a job in June and my blog is gaining more headway, it means I am trying to juggle quite a few things...including work, writing my PhD thesis (which is due in September 2016), having lupus (which means a whole day can sometimes be a wash in terms of getting things done for the blog or PhD) and blogging (and all that entails, which means publicizing, events and photos, which take a lot longer than I think non-bloggers appreciate!). This, by no means, is be being ungrateful for your support. I just wanted to address that so you guys are clear that I DO love you and your comments. I just don't always have time to say thank you.
