With the semester…

With the semester ending, there's a tendency to collapse and veg, but I think I actually have to put off the full collapse until June, as there are various deadlines and stuff-to-do. Am making myself a daily schedule for the next two weeks, just because I'm feeling anxious that I'm going to forget something major. The 'Neha here to work' parts are because I have a student employee working with the SLF and DesiLit this summer, full-time, courtesy of the AANAPISI grant, yay! I'm hopeful that between us, she and I can really revamp and reorganize both orgs and get them to a more professional, less ad hoc footing. :-)This is the life of a writer / professor in the summer. It's good, but it is not all lying on the beach. :-)
