Welcome to Dinosaur Bear! This is going to be a short post (yes, an actual short post from Taco, believe it or not!). Basically I just wanted to post that I have no idea when I’ll be posting next (lol). Well, actually that isn’t true, but more on that in just a second.
I’m getting ready to go through a bunch of changes. The bar exam, job interview(s?), moving (déjà vu), moving again, starting a post-doc program (in another country), and so on and so forth. There are a lot of unknowns in this process which means that I have no real firm timeline on a lot of things (for instance, as of right now I still don’t have a place to live abroad). As such, I don’t know when I’ll have a time to make another Dinosaur Bear post, but rest assured I’ll definitely be generating content for that post whenever it does come.
In fact, on the day this gets posted I’ll be on my way to take the bar exam, which is effectively the beginning of my “blog blackout” period that could last upwards of a month (or longer). However, have no fear, I can guarantee at least one post in the interim. It’s going to be my “Boston Post-Game” post, which, unsurprisingly, covers pretty much the exact opposite of my “Boston Pre-Game” post from (what seems like) a lifetime ago, and is the third subject I talked about posting here.
That next post (which is a doozy, as it covers everything that happened from New Orleans to me leaving for the bar exam) should drop on August 1st and give you something to chew on until I get around to posting about the bar exam, moving, and really starting what is by most accounts a practically new life.
Anyways, if you still can’t believe that I’d write something this short (e.g. a normal sane-person type of post) then I suggest perusing some of the Dinosaur Bear archives. You can either just do a random search (see here if you are confused by wizardry), or go with some of the following suggestions by some people who appear on the blog regularly. I asked Meem and SB to pick a post they really liked (they both ended up choosing two), whereas I asked the Boys to pick some older posts that they thought didn’t get enough traffic or were just silly. I also tossed in a personal pick which I haven’t referenced in awhile and need to follow up on someday (plus a bonus full of some silliness).
SB’s Picks: North to Alaska [Part 4 of 4] and To Salem, then Danvers, and Back Again
Meem’s Picks: The Beginning and Moving Voyage: Stage 3 – Carrying Things & Settling
Tristen’s Pick: Scotland – 1, Umbrella – 0
Valentino’s Pick: Pickin’ Bluebarrahs (he also asked me to link this one: Happy Hollow and “Rushi”)
Pig’s Pick: LaCroix y u do dis?
Pigsten’s Pick: Denver Check-in #3 (Toys)
Taco’s Pick: “Top 10” – Albums (with a shout out to that “silly offspring” of the Alaska series, North to Alaska [Bonus Post])
So there’s some random posts for you to revisit (or explore for the first time). If you like posts to be suggested, I’d also check out my “5 Years of Dinosaur Bear” post if you haven’t already.
With that said, I bid you adieu for now. If you have some good vibes to spare, please address them to Taco over the next week as I could definitely use some cosmic encouragement.
Look for my Boston Post-Game post on August 1st! After that, well, time will tell. 🙂
Until next time,
