Even though I'm in this new job and haven't had the chance to accrue much vacation leave, I was able to take off the week between Christmas and New Year's Eve because the library was completely closed during this period. That was very nice and I was able to escape Sydney's oppressive heat by visiting Tasmania and catching up my family and friends there. I had so many fresh cherries there too - another person might have got sick of them, but I can never have too many cherries.
Now I'm back at work and it seems as if the summer slowdown has officially ended with the orientation of this year's new MBA class. Then I realized, wow - it's been a little while since my last blog post. It's been good to have a little holiday from blogging too.
I've enjoyed reading the 2005 retrospectives and New Year posts which some bloggers have written recently. I plan to do no such thing today - I do enough of this already from time to time.
