Dissertating Blues

So today is the last day in which the semester is in session. Last day of finals. Most people have left campus and are in their respective homes by now. However, I still am here.

Well, I guess that's because there's this dissertation that I am working on, and I have a workaholic thing that is working for me. Well, I also don't have family within a radius of 100 miles, so there really isn't somewhere to go. And besides, if I want to finish on schedule with my magnum opus, then I need to work on it as well.

I haven't been constantly blogging recently, there's just a lot of things to do. I also realized that I rarely find the time to be online, so I need to catch up on that as well.

I am surprised that we didn't get the blizzard that affected the rest of the East Coast this past weekend. I heard that people had a hard time flying since major airports in the East Coast got plenty of cancellations, such as LaGuardia and JFK, Newark, Dulles, and Logan. Good thing I wasn't scheduled to fly or anything, but I personally know a few people stranded with their travel plans. My German friend who was flying to Guadalajara had to take a bus from Buffalo to New York City because his connection got canceled. A college friend flying from New Jersey to Texas had to be re-scheduled. And so on.

Anyway, the holidays are coming, and people are getting in a festive mood. I am totally avoiding the malls for the moment. The sight of plenty of people just can be overwhelming at times.

Finally, I now have a new photo series running, still picture from DC, but I promise there aren't a lot anymore and I myself am ready to load a new photo series from a different location. It says how much photos I take when I am on vacation, since right now I have a two-year backlog.

  1. Same here, no blizzard so far! The rest of the Northern hemisphere, including Europe, seems to have snow. We just have a dry -25C.

    Last day of exam was on Saturday for me. Not a minute too soon, I was happy to be in holidays.

  2. Zhu,

    I know. We haven't been plowed with snow, so far. But hey, I am not complaining. I like having my driveway clean.
