I have really been enjoying my extended vacation over winter break. After a really, really full academic year that included quite a few significant milestones — finishing coursework, finishing my last language requirement, passing my comprehensive exams, submitting my Title, Scope, and Procedure form — I have allowed myself to take a true break and just breathe a little.
In Houston, this breezier state of mind manifested itself in belt-free outfits: longer shirts and a draped open cardigan. In Honolulu, it’s frequently taken the form of full, swishy skirts and warm, yummy colors.
While I am ready and motivated to begin working on my dissertation again, I can’t say that that I’m ready to jump back into below-freezing Midwest temperatures and all the many layers it requires. I’ll be hanging loose for a few more days…
