Work that is. No more work for the rest of the year. The whole campus pretty much shuts down the days between Christmas and New Year's. While it's not written in our contract, it's written in the union's contracts that they get this time off. For our Association, we don't get paid overtime, so HR "generously" gives us this time off in lieu of the overtime we've done over the year.
What will I be doing over the next few days? Homework. I'm soooo behind it's not even funny. Programming, while sometimes fun, can have some really un-fun moments. I've spent the last 3-4 weeks banging my head against a brick wall trying to come up with a solution. I finally have, but it's not how I want it to really work, and it's not an elegant solution, but it is a solution.
What will I also be doing? Work-work. I running some pretty tight deadlines the first week of January, so I need to be ready for it.
Somewhere along the way, I'll also be doing Boxing Day shopping, probably right on that day. And having turkey dinner.
And that's my holiday in a nutshell. Eating, working, homework, and a bit of shopping. I think I need a vacation.
