What to do, what to do…

So I’m looking at a month’s long “vacation” this September. Most people
in the working world would probably kill for one of those. ;)

I don’t feel comfortable travelling because I have some paperwork that
still needs to be done. If the Canadian government says that they need
more information or an interview, I want to be in Toronto and ready to
deal with it. So a month-long trip to the Philippines is probably out
of the question. (It’d be my third trip this year, too, and someday
I’ll need to either earn bucketloads of money or wean myself off
expensive travels…) Hmm. Maybe short trips.

I’ve also asked Jane Zhang about volunteer
opportunities. I might be able to help with some workshops, and
Software Freedom Day is coming up as well.

You know what I want to do? I want to write a book, or at least get
significantly along one. Maybe about Emacs. Maybe about social
computing. Maybe about my life so far. ;) BUT I want to write a book,
and I want to see it printed and bound. Who knows? If it’s a book
about Emacs, someone might even buy it.

I’ll sit down and make a list of the gazillion things I want to do,
and see if something emerges…

Random Emacs symbol: remove-list-of-text-properties – Function: Remove some properties from text from START to END.
