Now I am back from my long trip with my family to Hawaii. To avoid the high-priced flight tickets, in fact we flew from Philadelphia to Las Vegas, then to San Diego, then to Honolulu, then to Maui, then to San Francisco, and then back. Whew! It was definitely a refreshing trip, with a few small unpleasantries. My camera recorded numerous highlights, which I now would soon consolidate into my memory. I found myself a huge fan of sunset scenes. Here is one from the La Jolla beach.

My new year resolution is really simple: keep on track with my research and aim for graduation and job hunting. Everything else is minor. Hope this will be a productive year for me.
