As of late Saturday afternoon, after submitting my fourth and final syllabus for the winter semester, I am officially on a semester-long sabbatical.
A colloquium paper I have agreed to present in early October should jump-start work on my major research project and keep me busy through September. Although I completed a lot of the work that will (hopefully) go into the paper this summer, the paper is not yet written.
Other sabbatical dreams include lots of time to catch up on important reading in my field, good progress on a variety of OCP-related fronts, and a head-start on class prep for second semester. Oh...and there's also our forthcoming baby to get used to.
