Oh June...

"The world always needs to be saved right before the holiday", said my mom. She had made an effort to get me start the holiday early. Sadly, she failed in that.

In June, I had a work trip once a week. I went twice to Helsinki for a meeting, once to a conference in Jyväskylä (where I presented the draft of the first draft for the first time) and once in Copenhagen to a DRUID conference (where I was a session chair). The other meeting in Helsinki was between our research team and the other was more formal steering group meeting. In a steering group meeting, we were suppose to present the current stage and plans for autumn to TEKES, which is financing the research project.

Additionally, I wanted to clean my desk and get my research in a good stage - in order to leave with peace. Well, this year, I didn't reach the peace for the summer holiday. Maybe for Christmas then :)

Soon I'll pack my luggage and head to Italy. I plan to leave all work home (excluding one interesting dissertation that is about how voluntary expatriate period in China affects to career). The plan is to enjoy il vino italiano, cappuccino, the sun, mineral water bath and historical places and try to speak some Italian.

Have a sunny summer holiday!
