Sorry (not sorry) to all you students looking for homework help, but this post is not about the Joyce Carol Oates story. (P.S. Stop Googling and do your own homework. I promise your instructor doesn’t care what the internet thinks but wants to know what you think instead.)
Where have you been?
So yes. I took a brief (three weeks??? it felt longer) internet hiatus, mostly because I was moving but also because the internet is my fun/escape place, and it definitely has NOT been that for a while. Not only has the news been bad, but a friend of mine was going through a personal crisis that really made me examine who I allow into my safe spaces on the internet. So everything just felt like a lot of noise, and it was stressing me out. Therefore, a break was needed.
