year four

January 24, 2009 by Saar Drimer

This is the fourth anniversary of the weblog. If you look a couple of posts down you’ll see one about “year three”, meaning that I have not written much in the interim. Maybe my life’s boring, or maybe I lost the drive to share. Maybe I’m too busy, or not busy enough.

It’s the time of the PhD when people ask me what I plan to do next (as if the PhD is in the bag, which it isn’t). I say that I don’t know. This is the truth, not an attempt to weasel out of a lengthy discussion. The world is in the gutter, and who knows what will it look like in six months. Regarding my own short term future, I suppose that the best answer I can give is that I’ll go where the best opportunity is. (OK, I am weaseling here, because I’m not defining what kind of opportunity I’m after… I’ll leave it for some other time, though those who know me can probably guess ;)

As per tradition, I provide you with a picture of myself to cheer everyone up. This time I’m squinting and smirking at the Tatra mountains in Zakopane, Poland.

All the best to us all.

    I am so happy to see your still around.

    Wendy is also in the last year of her PhD and well I am still trying to figure out what to do with myself.

    My father was born in Rabka which is about 40 KM north of Zakopane. He always said it was a beautiful mountain resort and these pictures show it. Is that where your family originally came from before going to Israel? (My father emigrated to Israel also before coming to the US)
