In the past couple of weeks

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

I am ashamed of myself.  How could I have neglected this space for this long? Being preoccupied with work is not valid reason. It is just plain laziness.

In the past couple of weeks, I have:
  • Devoured past seasons of Project Runway and Netflix’s House of Cards.  Against my better judgment, I find the two shows unreasonably addictive.
  • Been dream-planning for a trek on the Camino de Santiago. Our limited vacation time will not permit us to finish the entire 780 kms so we plan to walk only the first hundred kilometers starting from St John Pied de Port in southwestern France then across the Pyrenees to Spain and all the way to Pamplona.
  • Been very busy managing three divisions since the restructuring.  Most of my time is spent in attending meetings and sending emails to ensure the timely delivery of projects.
  • Read Richard Yates’ Revolutionary Road and Khaled Hosseini’s A Thousand Splendid Suns, both of which I really liked.  I am now reading Pres. Obama’s The Audacity of Hope.
  • Received the most fabulous Valentine’s gift ever: language classes for Mandarin, Japanese, Spanish or French.  I wanted to attend the classes for Spanish but they are scheduled on weekdays, so I’d probably go for Japanese instead.  Studying on my own is fine, but it would be great to finally have actual people to converse with.
