All the best on your academic year ahead. I trust that you will not lose the wiki fire in you, and that you will return in time for Wikimania 2015 bid.

Hi Lourie,
As someone who often struggles to balance work and extracurricular activities, I understand and support your decision.
Best of luck with your studies, and I hope your lobbying efforts will bear fruit; that's a very important topic which impacts free knowledge globally.
