Life is Short but Snakes are Long turned 5 years old in April, and reached 1 million views on June 26th, 2017. I celebrated with a month-long recapitulation of the "best-of" on Twitter in the spring, and by taking a much-needed break from writing new content during the second half of the year. I didn't make a formal announcement of this break because I honestly wasn't sure how long it would last (although I knew it wasn't permanent). During the past six months I've focused on settling in to my new job in Germany, traveling around Europe, publishing a key article from my dissertation, and applying to postdocs and "real" jobs. I'm currently waiting to hear whether I'll be starting something new in 2018—if I am, I plan to continue to write Life is Short but Snakes are Long as I have been. If I'm not, I plan to begin revising certain past articles, and writing new ones, for a book. In either case, I'm looking forward to a lot of new content in 2018.
As always, thank you for reading.
