I was lucky enough to go snowshoeing several times during the Christmas holiday. Here three examples. Not as much snow as I would like, but plenty of cold, white landscape, exercise and solitude.
Ah, the holidays. The wonderful time of quiet and rest. Just enough to remind you that you have a lot of work ahead.
In addition to the day job, I'm teaching a SysAdmin class at BYU this semester. And taking a writing class for my PhD program at Capella University. And going to a PhD colloquium in February to find a good dissertation topic and mentor, which is, essentially, another class with its own, shorter, track. This will be a fun few months.
