Traveling again

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I’m quitting my job at IBM and starting graduate school this fall. My last day of work is April 1st (no joke) and school doesn’t start until September, so I’ve got myself a six month vacation! To kick it off, I’ll be flying to Japan on April 2nd and spending a week there. On April 12th, I’ll fly from Japan to Hong Kong and stay there for another week. I should be back in the States on April 18th.

Once I’m back home and settled, I’ll still have a solid five months left until school starts—plenty of time to do all the things I never got to do because I was too busy working. I don’t have anything definite planned, but I’m thinking something along the lines of playing video games, watching movies, going to the gym regularly (doubtful), playing guitar/keyboard/KAOSS, making cool stuff (both physical and digital), and working some random part-time jobs for spending money/employee discounts.

    […] As part of my (late) birthday present, my sister bought me two books I’ve been wanting to read for a while: The Zen of Fish and The Omnivore’s Dilemma. (Hey, we all have to do our part to prove Steve Jobs wrong.) I finished reading The Zen of Fish last week, and I’ll probably save reading The Omnivore’s Dilemma for the flight to Japan. […]
