Chris Uggen's Blog: already one

already one

yikes! i've been blogging for about a year now. i say "about" because sometime last may i guess i started posting regularly. before that i was mostly just stashing longer emails to friends.

when people ask how much time i spend blogging, i lack a good answer. i really lack a good answer for coauthors who ask such questions as they wait for me to turn around a manuscript. i'm therefore a little concerned about my ability to blog regularly after the ceremonial passing of the boomerang and my impending administrative responsibilities.

as is sometimes painfully apparent, most posts take very little time to write. even on the short blurb-like entries i can get a little distracted doing cursory fact-checking or searching for images. nevertheless, such distractions can be serendipitous, informative, and fun.

tonight's distraction concerns pictures of one-year-old kids eating birthday cake. after seeing such faces, i had to spend a little more time listening to an old song called already one.

while such time may be misspent, it doesn't seem wasted. if you ever find yourself in the pit of despair, just do an image search of "one year old" and cake. if you're like me, you might come away thinking there's still a lot of love left in this world.

Well, I'm (nearly) a one-year-old PhD student. Someone just congratulated me today. Maybe I should have some cake...
