I'm very glad that it's almost Christmas and that Elias and I are going to Austin to see my parents. I feel like I can definitely use some time to relax, and there's no place better for it than your parents' house. With the possible exception of tropical beaches. But it's 50/50.
Today's the last day of my interviewing job at Macalester (not that I have any interviews today), but I did end up getting the job to read applications. That's nice, and will last until the end of February. In the long term, I have failed to find brilliant solutions to the problem of employment, but for the short term, I'm doing ok.
Today is also the last day of krav maga, which means, of course, that I have become an unstoppable fighting machine. Clearly. To further hone our killer instincts, Elias and I are considering taking another six-week session in January and February. We'll see.
In other news, there's the obvious tons of snow, which, I have to say, is a lot more of a pain in the ass when it falls in increments larger than a foot. I feel like the Cities can handle 12 inches, but 17 seems to be a problem. I mean, at some point, you have to put the physical bulk of it somewhere or you can't see around corners anymore. I'm not joking. Line of sight for making left turns has become a major issue.
Anyway, it's almost Christmas and I only have a few days of work left at my other job, so the feeling of holiday vacation is increasing by the hour. Next thing you know I'll be capping off the morning workout with a mimosa.
