Time is running and there is still a lot to do and then I am going away this weekend… Well I would probably not have done anything on Saturday even if I would have stayed in Berlin but, it does feel bad. Shouldn’t I be in front of my computer even if I would just stare at the screen? Well. I decided not to.
So in a few hours I am going away with my Lacrosse team for the last time in a long while probably and this is exactly a perfect reason why I decided not to stay home. Who cares if my thesis has these few mistakes? I won’t remember that in a few years but the fun I had on a weekend away with my lovely team girls! This is what I want!
And because I have a lot of finished knitting projects flying around that just need to be blocked, I did this during the moments when my internet was not working. And no internet, no work on my thesis. Bähm.
Sorry for this very poor iPhone photo. The lighting is awful. My top lightbulb has been broken for a few days now, just have no time for stuff like this!
You can see my Nurmilintu, Saroyan and the Olivia Shawl. And yes I do double block so fronts and backs of cardigans match each other! Anyone else doing this too?
You might also notice that two shawls did not quite fit onto my bed, or was it me starting wrong? Anyway, even if I would have been more cautious, they are too big! Well too big for my bed, not too big for me 🙂
ok. this was quick. I still have to pack and have dinner.
Lovely weekend everyone!
It is almost four o’clock, in the morning my dear readers! It’s insane. I don’t feel tired at all. I’m one of the many people that work better when it’s dark outside and there is less traffic and almost no people are online (but then with friends all around the world, this is not a reason anymore). But, working until almost four is maybe a bit, aehm, let’s call it problematic. Especially when one has to work at nine o’clock on Friday. So to break the habit I stayed awake until nine (!!!) on Tuesday and then had a four hour nap and hoped to get tired early but no, worked until late again. This is not a good rhythm. But I have no idea what to do about it…
At least I got a lot of writing done and I am now onto the analysing part of my thesis and then conclusion and results and stuff. But mostly I am afraid of quotes and the appendix and list of references… Or maybe the statistics for my anlysing part? Aaaaah! This is all insane!
life had been very busy lately but I have something really fun coming up and am in a very happy place right now, or just as happy as one can be with the deadline of the final thesis being like end of May?! Haha.
So what has happened? I went to Desden with my lacrosse team and we came second in the Lax in the Box tournament! Which is just insane! My knee was and is still hurting a lot though but coming second?!? So awesome! We even got a medal!!!
I’ve been at university almost all week long and working with the data from my eye tracking experiment! It has been nerve wracking but also very interesting and the whole thing has so much potential, I have to watch out not to get too much into it all as I’m only writing a bachelors thesis right now and not yet a masters!
On Sunday is the last game of this season and it is a win win situation as in its either us or the other team who will get a place for the play offs! So we want to win this game so badly and it would be just amazing to go to the play offs!!! It would be such a great ending to my time playing for Victoria Lacrosse Berlin!
Time is flying bye so so quickly. I still have so much things to organise before my move to Australia and I can’t really do any of them as I have my head focused on my thesis!
Weather in berlin is getting nicer and nicer and I’ve been wearing my Birkenstocks and dresses without tights! So awesome! Well I leave the house in the mornings with leggings and as soon as I’m at university the leggings go straight into my backpack 🙂
I went to a talk about the Russian Ukrainians crisis at the GMF in berlin and it was very interesting and I’ve learnt a lot!
But now I’m going to sleep. I have to get up extra early tomorrow cause the train personnel is on strike and I have no clue how easy it will be for me to get to work tomorrow morning as I have to take the Sbahn and not the Ubahn which I take to get to university…
Oh and tomorrow night we have lacrosse team night at my place! All the girls at mine and we will order food and talk and have a great time 🙂
I also hope to record a new podcast episode on Saturday with a special giveaway coming up!
so this morning I somehow ended my alarm and continued sleeping just until I woke up by my flatmate leaving for work, at around ten. Wasn’t I supposed to be in university for a meeting at ten? Oh shit. So I wrote a quick mail to my colleague asking if it would be ok to reschedule to tomorrow, no biggie. So instead of then using the time and read for my thesis my knees hurt so badly I just moved to the other side of my bed and continued sleeping, until midday or rather one thirty… Worried about my knees still being in pain I finally got up and dressed and on my way to a friends uncle who is supposed to be a really good doctor… I missed my bus stop and had to walk in this shitty rain, as weather in berlin just sucks atm, arrived and it was bad. The waiting room full with people and the line to get to the reception almost leading out into the hallway… So I waited for like 45 min, nothing really happened during that time but my knees getting worse from standing the whole time, so I then decided to just go home again and try again, maybe tomorrow…
Back home I took some time to get my papers organised and to clean my desk, a never ending story, did some mapping but still can’t decide on a route and three rows of unravelling and one row of knitting.
Now time to sleep as tomorrow’s sure can’t oversleep again!
So. I had big plans, very big plans. And then my normal routine came back and all the motivation and energy had run away…
I created so many posts and things I wanted to share in my head, I actually have a list written down of what I want to share but, life gets in the way…
So, today is Monday and I’m going to tell you a little bit about my week, what my plans are and what I want to do, and hopefully this will help me to organise my life a little bit better…
Monday: work on my thesis, go babysitting, organise with my flatmate for someone to sublease one of our rooms, transfer some money
Tuesday: work on my thesis, go babysitting
Wednesday: working, go to the library and get a book (Potsdam)
Friday: have the option to work, but not sure, if not, thesis!
Saturday: work on thesis
Sunday: work on thesis
My main goal for this week is to finish writing my research proposal!
Talk to my lecturer about the questions I have and
finish knitting my Nurmilintu, or well, I will run out of yarn soon anyway so should think about what to do then…
