This year is almost over. A meeting I’ve scheduled today is in January 2021!

I will take two weeks off from December 21st. In Japan, the end of a year and the beginning of the next year are like Thanksgiving and Christmas combined for American people. Companies mostly have official holidays. People go back to their hometowns. We have nice traditional foods. While I won’t go Japan this year, my Japanese brain still needs this moment of isolation and self reflection, even after living in the States for more than six years.

I may or may not do some non-work computer stuff during the off. I want to kick-start some personal projects, but I also think I should have some no screen time.
