I was going to write about how much I love Boston, but I guess that’s obvious to anyone who has been reading this blog for the past decade or so.
No, today I’m going to talk about my love of hiatus week. I work at a university in this city of Boston, a university of Boston, if you will. This was a particularly intense semester, with a ton of work to do. The second week of December, it suddenly ends. The semester ends and we prepare ourselves for Christmas and such.
For me, it’s a week to catch up on sleep, laundry, cooking, visiting the people that I have abandoned because of work and general relaxation. I’m not on vacation yet. Just hiatus. And it’s great. I might get in a ski trip or two, or three… in there as well.
As a part of hiatus week, I had to do some Christmas shopping. It was rain/snowing/whatever that day and I had grabbed my camera, in case anything interesting crossed the camera’s path. And it did. I walked around Copley square, near the Prudential to the John Hancock building or I guess its 200 Clarendon or whatever they call it now. To me it will always be the Hancock building.
Got some photos as well. Funny how interesting life is when you are running around LIKE MAD. Pictures:
