Sabbatical begins soon.

On the agenda:

  • start sabbatical with Yufei in Chicago

  • attend the NASM annual meeting in Washington, D.C., and spend two days in visiting evaluator training
  • meet my new great-nephew
  • spend Thanksgiving in NYC with Yufei
  • visit Chicago again in December to attend several concerts
  • (most likely) attend a conference in Florida in January
  • travel to Thailand and Vietnam for holiday in January
  • perform a cabaret show in February
  • continue teaching 12-15 students weekly at home while on sabbatical

  • read
  • cook lots of new and yummy recipes
  • compose and set up self-publishing
  • organize
  • volunteer for hospice
