Would it worry you if I told you that I’ve been turned into a zombie and am not, in fact, alive?
It’s finals week, so I guess I only feel like a zombie. I’m not actually a brain-devouring undead monster. Yet. Even though I haven’t been updating, I do have a list of posts done up—a paper queue that I just haven’t translated into a Tumblr queue—and I’ve been trying to answer asks when I can.
