1. Finish up the last two months of my contract with the minimum amount of stress possible (given that it's kind of a high-stress place and all).
2. Get myself, my cat, and my stuff safely back to the US.
3. Relax, decompress, de-stress. Taking early-March through late August off sounds ideal. I am literally counting the days. 43 more work days, 69 days 'til I'm back in the US.
4. Start grad school. (I've already heard back from one of the 5 schools to which I applied, saying that I've been accepted, so this is definitely a go - all that remains to be seen is where I'll be going. I should hear from the other four this month, and then I should hear about funding...)
