Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.

I’m Sorry I Lied

Didn’t I say the posting drought was supposed to end?
Don’t mind that. I’ve been busier than expected, and it’s bloody tiring. The hours, it seems, are slipping away with alarming rapidity. Meanwhile, my mind is shifting hard between bouts of intense concentration during the week, and numbing boredom at the weekend. Is it any wonder, therefore, that I haven’t been around this site much lately?
There’s no way I can keep up working weekends for much longer, as I’m just losing valuable research and writing time, not to mention rest for my weary brain. (Scoff if you like, but studying is hard work!)
I’m letting myself down, because I love what I’m doing study-wise, but I can’t yet commit to it as wholeheartedly — and as single-mindedly — as I’d like. And I’m also letting you down, dear reader, by allowing this site to go fallow; I don’t like it any more than you do.
However, while I’d love to change this situation for the better right now, I’m afraid that won’t be happening until the end of the month. So for the time being, things will remain on the quiet side around here. I’m sorry I lied.
