I’m sorry for the long absence, readers. (In the world of blogging, a week is a long time, right?) I recently got back from a trip to the new city I’ll be living in for my job later this summer. A lot of stuff happened while I was gone: Mark linked to me on his blog and I got a lot of visitors (thanks, Mark!); the war in Eastern Ukraine is still going on; and I’m freaking out about packing my stuff for my upcoming move. In other words, business as usual and I’ll be back to blogging about Ukraine soon.
