Happy 2021, the year of Ox!!

The statute of Ox, near the Oxford Station, the United Kingdom

We have one more day to close 2020, which will be recorded as the year of global pandemic (or forceful execution of remote working) on history textbooks around the world for our children and grand children.

To me personally, 2020 was best suited to focus on the study at school (6 months more to go!). During the winter break, I have 2 essays to finish… one is doing business in emerging markets and another on M&A industry report.

It is unbelievable that I have endured the pain to write an essay each month with significant readings and research for over a year, while keeping the full time job. I cannot wait to finish up this agony soon (thought it did signed up for this).

Well, hope 2021 will be the better year for everyone!

I just realised that the new year is the year of Ox. Pasted above is the statute by the Oxford station. Its front shot is pasted below.

2020年も残すところあと1日ですね。歴史の教科書にはグローバルパンデミックの一年、あるいは本格的なリモートワーク元年と刻まれそうです。

個人的には家にこもって勉強をするにはもってこいの年でした(卒業まであと半年です!)。この冬休み中にも論文が2本残っていて、一つは新興市場でのビジネス、もう一つはM&Aのインダストリーレポートです。

大学院にはいってからの過去一年ばかり、毎月かなりの読書やリサーチをしつつ月に一本ペースで論文を書き、次の授業に備えるという苦行を、しかもフルタイムの仕事をしつつ続けてきました。好きで始めたこととはいえ、卒業が待ち遠しいです。

ともかく来年こそは皆にとって良い年でありますように。

2021年は丑年ですね。英語で言うとYear of Ox ということで、英国オックスフォードにある駅前の牛の写真を飾っておきます。下は正面からみた図です。
