Just a reminder that you should enjoy the holidays and take care of yourself! Many of us are looking forward to anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks off in the next two months. We’ll spend that vacation/holiday time learning about new things, participating in the many events (vDM30in30, SysAdvent, Commitmas, who knows what else), and maybe even working. This might be the only time this year you have real downtime in which to learn and partake in events or to get certain things done at work, and you should certainly take advantage of that.
Don’t forget to reserve some time for yourself, though. Give your brain a break. Hang out with your family, watch some TV, have a snowball fight. Put the phones and computers and tablets down for a day or two to recharge those batteries and fend off burnout. If you stink at vacationing, let your friends know and I’m sure they’ll be happy to harrass you when you show up on Facebook and Twitter too much!
Take care of yourself, friends!
