So, 2011...

The year started out on a sad note, as an acquaintance of mine took his life in February, and my world got a bit darker and emptier. Workwise, I finished a few bigger projects and had a whole month of field work. I applied for three Ph.D.s and one osteo job, but got neither. But I did go to an environmental conference in Poland, where I presented a paper, which was great fun. All these applications and paper preparations took time, and consequently I read less books and did much less crafts. However, I went to a dance class once a week and I have started to learn to knit, as every winter I get grumpy about the almost non-existant availability of wool accessories. Just need to take that bit of extra time to work on it, and I'm sure I'll get the hang of knitting.

I hope 2012 will be a good year. There is a Ph.D. position coming up at Uppsala University in Sweden (deadline 16 Jan) so I need to get going and finish the application. On a less positive side, so to speak, there is a huge report deadline this spring, so blog posts might be very scarce for a while. If only we could have got a bigger time budget, as the project really deserves it. I hope I will have time to go to some dance events and perhaps have a holiday abroad (i.e. an abroad which is not home in Sweden).
