I had been procrastinating about going to China. How I wish I could - but I had too many issues home in Australia to deal with, so here I will remain for 2011. Still though I can keep in touch with everyone, and with any luck can have one or two students stay with me later in the year.
My study will keep me going - and I may try to get some of my m/s finished/published this year. As well I have a long to do list. I don't make resolutions - but I have a lit of things I wish to accomplish during the year. One of course is to do well at all subjects for Swinburne (Masters) Perhaps by end of February 2012 I will be finished.
It looks like I could have some long term house sitting adventures, so I will wait and see - and save my dollars.
Meanwhile I am reading a fantastic book about China. Peter Hessler is a journalist in China, and has written several books. The one I am reading now is "Country Driving" and he tells the tales of his driving around China. It means a lot more to me having been there, and having some understanding of the complex Chinese culture, and while it is a big book, I am slowly wading through it - as well as coping with my studies.
