On A Time Out 

Today I have started a hybrid holiday and travelled to Finland for a few days of snow and, by the looks of it, sunshine.

It is however not a full holiday – the intention is to schedule my booked skating lessons in the diary, look at whether playing hockey would be a real option, read a book and find some new source material for my research, plot through ten articles with the intent to do the same, and then start writing posts for two different blogs now that I finally have a lightweight laptop.

 The work never ends but atleast this time it is done somewhere different.



Things That Hit You

The realisation that the conference in Japan is in four months and no preparations have been yet done. 

 Time to break out those language books and try to figure out things like flights and hotels. Next week, conference registration, the month after that, the flights. For now, just getting ready mentally.
