It feels like a week has gone by since I woke up this morning! I’ve had three meetings, two lectures, a project session, a mini marathon of one of the shows I was watching on Netflix, and I went swimming. On top of that I decided to take my Christmas tree out of it’s box again and set it up. (Little to no decorations yet.)

Tomorrow I’ll have no lectures at all, but I do have to get up early for a call with one of my project-teammates.

Today was a great personal day, an okay “schoolday”.

I had two lectures today, math and statics. They were both fine, but I didn’t get any new insights into either of those subjects, so nothing too exciting there.

This afternoon I went to my friend’s apartment and we “studied” together. We talked, exchanged some insights/ideas and I finished part one of my CAD assignment which should be handed in before Friday, and some more stuff. After that I stayed for dinner (risotto😍) and we watched a tv show.

Tonight I was able to do some preparations for one of my meetings tomorrow and I think I might go to bed right after finishing this post, because I’m struggling to keep my eyes open.

Hope you had a lovely day aswell!

24/11/20 - Still here

Sooooooo I kinda disappeared for over a month and I apologise! Sometimes life happens and you just don’t feel like blogging, you know?

Anywayy I was so happy to be back in the lab and I had fun with the activities we did :D Here’s a very short video of a redox titration with KMnO4~ It’s a classic but still never fails to amaze me

I hope you’re having a nice day 🥰

The workload for the aviation project is quite heavy this week. We are supposed to get about 120 hours of work done (which is about 13h per person) on top of the normal homework and lectures.

I spent close to six hours working on it today, so that means I’m already halfway there! I might do some more work later tonight, but I’m first going to read the next chapter for my materials class.

I love how productive I am/have been today! ❤

22/11/2020, Sunday.

University shifted to online classes two weeks ago, I am sad because I love attending lectures and the general university atmosphere! I am trying to study in advance and keep up with the program as we do it. Not anxious enough to be productive 24/7, but I am working way more than I was used to do in my undergrad. 📚

The good news is: Laboratories are allowed! They are the most important and enjoyable part of the courses, only have 6 afternoons though… Better than nothing! 2 done, 4 to go 💪

Personal life: S. moved in temporarily. It is the best option to keep seing each other during lockdown 2.0. Life with a “roommate” is going smoothly. I thought it would have been harder! It is to be considered that he keeps going at university in order to finish his traineeship, he’s out of the house during office hours (I still have my alone time) 💚

3dpf zebrafish larvae!!

this is the coolest thing I’ve ever been a part of and every day in the lab is exhilarating

I’m in the stage of my project where I’m observing embryos and solidifying time points for official observations for my thesis!

I’ve been working on homework/assignments for 13,5 hours (these do include lunch and dinner). I’ve worked on math, the aviation project and CAD and my brain is fried now. I’ve gotten quite a bit done, but the tasks for project and CAD were very big, so it kinda feels like I didn’t get much done. Oh well, at least I don’t have to do them anymore.

I really need my weekend now!

Today was another project day. This week, I was the chairwoman, so I had to prepare myself more than usual. It went quite allright, but there were some minor problems (as always). After my project session I felt very tired and just overall “meh”. I therefore didn’t do anything productive after that.

I’ll be going out to swim some laps in a bit with my friend Nick and I’m hoping my brain switches into “productive-homework-mode” after, so I can do some math exercises. Otherwise, I guess I’ll finish my work on the weekend.

Today I wasn’t feeling too well. I was quite nauseous and my chronic pain was acting up more than usual. I therefore decided not to push myself into doing too much.

I went though some CAD tutorials, attended my materials lecture and did some homework excercises. I could have done more on a better day, but for now, I feel pretty happy with what I got done.

Today was a great day!

I had three lectures, two in the morning and one in the late afternoon. In the past I’ve struggled to concentrate during and after those “time gaps”, but today I managed to finish an assignment in that time. The lecture after that absolutely fine too, so happy me!

Tonight there’s gonna be a press conference on the pandemic-situation in the Netherlands and depending on how my mood is after that, I will either do some homework or put on a Christmas movie (and ignore real life for a bit), we’ll see.

Do you have any recommendations for Christmas movies? 🎄❤

Today was the second time since March (first lockdown) that I got up before 7.30 and I’m so tired already (it’s 17.30).

I’ve done some statics, but I spent most of my time on doing research for the aviation project. I looked up some airlines that should be comparable to the “our” airline and made some notes about the things I saw for multiple of those. Now I’m waiting for some input from another team member, but I won’t be getting that today.

Tonight will be a little more research and some more statics and after that: sleeeeepppp!!!

This morning after already sleeping in I spent a little bit too long playing Stardew - whoops.

It was raining while I sat at my desk in the morning/afternoon which was really nice. In terms of work I did 3 lectures to catch up in my surfaces and interfaces course so that I could start an assignment tomorrow, I started a history lecture, and I wrote down all the lectures that I missed last week that I’ll need to catch up on. I looked for jobs and made an application for one.

I also did my laundry which had built up from a while and made egg fried rice for dinner. I’m super happy with that since I haven’t had the motivation to cook any real food for a while (I’ve had way too many grilled cheeses). I did a short zoom yoga session with friends at night, leading me to be too tired to do anymore work.

I definitely have more to do but I’ve decided that I should fix my sleep schedule that I’ve messed up in the past week. Going to go to bed and deal with it all tomorrow 🙃

Today was the most chaotic day I’ve had in a long long time. It started out with a math lecture, which was completely normal.

Then I had a dentist appointment, which I had to get to in a hurry and my appointment was about twice as long as I expected. So I went home in a hurry and my class had started two minutes before I came home. For some reason I also struggled to get into the teams call, so not the best circumstances.

Then the teams call was absolute chaos in my opinion. It was our first class for CAD (computer aided drawing) and I expected to get taught how to use the program and a bit of the basics of how to go about starting out with an assignment. The teacher, however, went through everything very quickly, so I couldn’t really keep up. At the end of the lecture my brain felt fried.

Let’s hope next week is better! ❤

I only had one lecture today and it was on a new subject! The materials teacher seems great, I am however a bit confused about the software we are supposed to work with, but I’ll ask someone to help me understand.

I also worked on some mathematics homework and it went pretty well. I’ll try to finish it tonight, so I’ll have more time to work on my other classes tomorrow!
