Even with an extra day this year, I'm still going to be sort of AWOL for the next month. Here's what's going on:
- Final exams Saturday morning, and class sessions in the afternoon.
- Saturday night and Sunday to finish my spreadsheet class homework, catch up on business law reading, and start getting ready for the trip.
- Next week - the first week in March - will be busy at work. Not only do I need to be trained for my next rotation, I have to supervise/train my replacement to do my current work. I need to be two places at one time!
- Class Tuesday and Thursday - no more Monday night class this semester!
- Start figuring out the final presentation and paper due at the end of April.
- Buy a pair of comfortable, inexpensive, non-bedroom-slipper-y flat black shoes. I'm thinking of these.
- Start pulling things together for the trip - what does one actually take for a week long business/pleasure trip to Japan??
- Actually go on the trip. We leave the 14th, and come home on Easter. Not much I'll be able to do there!
- I have a midterm the Tuesday before I leave, and the Thursday I return. Also, more homework assignments due, as well as a business law presentation.
- Get in touch with a friend from college who just moved to Irvine.
- Attend my first 30th birthday party! I'm excited!
- Register for Summer semester, and buy my new parking permit. Why are they only offering 5 classes??? I have to compete for these??? Do enough people take the summer off???
- My new rotation starts the Friday I return; I'm taking Monday off after I get back to recover. So only three measly days to get things in order and start my new job!
- It's getting to be time to finalize some initial wedding plans. Most importantly, reserving a reception site, then putting a dress on order, putting together the wedding party, and contracting with a photographer. I'd love to squeeze some engagement portraits in! We've got a design for the save-the-date cards, but we still need to finalize the design, design and print the cards, and assemble, gather addresses, and mail them out.
In the meantime, bear with me ...
