Not only is it Friday, but it’s my last day until January 3rd. Hooray! Hooray! I will have a million things to do when I return, but I will do my best not to think about it. I’m trying to finish my proposal next week, which I think is completely doable. I’m feeling pretty good about it. I really appreciate everyone who stopped by and gave me feedback on my rough thoughts. Mr. Geeky was laughing at me last night because I was reading a collection of articles (most of which I have read before) and I said, “I can’t wait to get to the one on audience. It looks interesting and I haven’t read it before.” He said, “You’re sick. You deserve a Ph.D.”
No one will be in the office today. It should be really quiet and low key. I have a few things to finish up, but not much. I’ll listen to Christmas music–yay! People will probably stop by and chat. Actually, the whole week has been fairly low key. Though it’s been a little busy, there has still been a lot of talking, mostly about our work at a high level. Various people have stopped by to chat about the future of technology and education. It’s been fun. And that’s really why I like my job. I get to have these conversations and call it work.
Next week, I’ll write and bake and shop for presents. I’ll watch movies and read. Finally, a real break.
