The past few months have been somewhat of a busy blur while I have attempted to keep my head above water, and this little blog has been sorely neglected! With the start of 2018, I hope to remedy this, although I am not quite sure what the next few months will entail. I was frantically working on a paper for school as well as several other articles which occupied much of my time, and it was easy to let this little site fall by the wayside. However, with the completion of my class, my excuses for neglecting this blog are dwindling.
There have been quite a few holidays, both Jewish and Christian, which I never got around to blogging about, but I figure they will still happen next year. 🙂 I wasn’t very festive this year, but I did get a first-runner-up prize in a Hanukkah baking contest! I was pretty proud of myself! 🙂 Unfortunately, for some reason, the pictures (proof) I have aren’t letting me access them, so you will just have to take my word for it!
I journeyed back to the Shire for Christmas with my family and we had a lovely time doing a lot of holiday eating and relaxing! Unfortunately, all good vacations must come to an end and now I’m back in Brooklyn for a week before heading off on a new adventure. Yes, apparently I get bored and can’t stay in one place for too long!
On Thursday of next week I will be checking myself into a research hospital in Maryland for a week of extensive testing. I’m slightly intrigued with the idea of being used for research! hehe. From there I will be journeying on to Lancaster for a short spell before returning to the hospital in Maryland for surgery on February 2. I really don’t know for sure when I will be returning to my crooked Brooklyn apartment, but I hope and pray to be back and in good health soon. And I might even get some interesting blog info…discussions of hospital food, tips on how not to lose ones mind during extensive hospital stays, and what brain surgery is like…I also hope to be posting portions of my paper on the development of Jewish liturgical music, so stay tuned for an interesting and random start to 2018!
