Weekly review and more: week ends on 01/16/2011

This is my first weekly review of the year 2011. The Spring semester started last week, and so did the course CIS-800 which I administer. Besides that, I was too lazy and did not accomplish much.  One problem happened to me last week. Somehow I felt very empty and set back, that I did not find any interest in doing anything. I don’t think I was too stressed. It seems like I temporarily lost my sense of direction of my life, probably due to the winter break, the very cold weather, and my severe flu just 10 days ago. I feel better now. I wrote down my resolutions for 2011. I wrote down all the principles I need to adhere to. I wrote down all my responsibilities, to myself and my family. I hope everything will be fine the coming week and this year.

Plan for next week
