i know i am late but...happy new year

i am back in the uk after an awesome visit back home for the holidays. it's impossible to put into words how good it felt to be home---free of stress and all anxiety. it was much needed and very relaxing. the weather was amazing too. 70s in december....gotta love it. the only down side was the 2 weeks of not working out like i should have and eating any and everything in sight.

now that i am back at school, i am struggling to refocus and really buckle down in order to complete my phd in the next 8-12 months. it's very doable, but it will not be easy.

it's imperative that i find some happiness here at school in order to keep the positive energy and dedication needed to put in the intense amount of work and focus. at present, i am really missing my friends, and i have come to realize that as much as i thought i was coping with feeling so lonely pretty well, i was merely overlooking that i was slightly depressed. i have to take care of this before i can do anything else. and the key is finding happiness (either work, peace and quiet, meditation time, etc.).

I'm doing my PhD in Uni. Of Canterbury. Just started my 7th month. You should be glad that you are at the end of your journey.

As a 'fellow traveler on the road', I wish you well for your final months in your work :)
