The holiday season is a tough one. There’s the University, Faculty, Department and Section. And they all have Christmas drinks, new years lunch, receptions and God knows what. So far I’ve managed to avoid almost all of these events. Fun as they may be, if you keep showing up at every one of them, there will be no time left for any actual work. Plus all the free drinks and food are bad for your line. Luckilly, its almost over. On the down side, all the colleagues and students that were away on Christmas holidays are going to be back. Not that I don’t like them, but its just so peacefull and quiet at the university when they’re all gone. Its… its… Its the most wonderful time of the year… And its almost over.
