It’s December 23rd, grades are in, my daughter is in daycare, Christmas shopping still needs to be done, and I’m working on a review for a journal. What’s wrong with me? Shouldn’t I be enjoying the break between semesters? Why do I feel like the “break” is really code for “time to get caught up on all of the things that slipped between the cracks at the end of fall semester”? Am I the only one that feels this way? Are the rest of you reading this post by a crackling fire after making snowpeople with your families? Or are you reading this post in the lab while waiting for the centrifuge to do its thing?
Curious minds want to know. And procrastinating minds write surveys to find out! Here’s a survey for teaching faculty, graduate students, and post-docs, asking that important question: “What do you do with the break between fall and spring semesters?” (Note the hemispherically general form of the question).

I know the survey will be limited to the first 100 participants, so feel free to discuss in the comments too. Results will be posted…sometime before the start of my spring semester.
