  1. Everybody and their dog goes on holiday starting right about … oh, the time you need to talk to them because your house is on fire.
  2. I’ve heard it again and again, but I never listened:  when you start a collaboration, be damn sure that you know who’s doing what, who’s getting what credit, and where the project is headed.  Otherwise, you’re begging for one huge train wreck at the end.
  3. When you narrowly avert said train wreck, thank your lucky stars.
  4. Universities suck at writing regulations about doctoral theses.  Just sayin’.
  5. I need a damn vacation.
