January is turning out to be a quite a month of travel for me, and surprisingly busy at work. I came back to Baltimore from Chicago at the beginning of the month, was in CT this past weekend, and am off to Dallas for a conference this weekend. I’m pretty anxious – it’s my first real professional conference – but excited at the same time. I’ve been reading a lot, mostly generic nonfiction, and made a really huge and delicious pot of carnitas not too long ago that I’m still working my way through. They say a rolling stone gathers no moss, but from the number of library books I’ve accumulated this month, I beg to differ.
