The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated!
Thanks for your concern, amici! Fortunately I am well and spent a wonderful two weeks out West â€” upon my return I immediately had to prepare for my new job as a middle school Latin and Spanish teacher (don't worry, Amadeus and Gonzalo, elementary
Spanish! Plus I've improved since then
). Also, since my girlfriend also got a job teaching at this school (at its high school) as a Spanish teacher, we have moved back into Bethlehem together (where we just graduated from college) â€” but we have not had internet at our place for some six weeks! till now.
So I just got back to Textkit a few minutes ago for the first time since the beginning of August â€” and I have many, many pages of fora to read! Feel free to recommend anything especially important or intriguing â€” I'll be sifting through it all this weekend!
It's good to be back in my favorite Classical place online! Valete atque valete!
P.S. As for the "service," I'll be going into the Air Force next year.
