Min anden vinter i København

Min anden vinter i København

Happy new year! I wish you all an exciting 2018! And to my fellow researchers – may this year bring you exciting, but more importantly, reproducible results and a nice second reviewer!

It’s been an exciting last couple of months for me in Copenhagen! The days shortened and so began the winter season hygge.

Belated update from March

Belated update from March

It’s May and I’ve finally got some time to give you my long overdue ​update from March! It was a hectic month and since then I have been able to catch up with most of my friends in person so the urgency for writing the update decreased over time. Still, it’s nice to show you some photos and tell you what’s been going down!

Det nye år begynder i København!

Det nye år begynder i København!

January spanned 5 weeks and it feels like it’s been a long long time since it was Christmas! I tried not to do so much outside of work as one of my new year goals was to save up but now having written it all up, I think I managed a fair bit!

Dark, cold Octphởber in Copenhagen

Dark, cold Octphởber in Copenhagen

October kick started with a weekend in Manchester to discuss papers and to get some loving from my boyfriend’s cat! There was also a weekend in London for catch ups, birthday and engagement parties. I also fitted in a visit from a Manchester friend, tried a few new restaurants, and made some progress at work! It was getting really dark here – last Thursday I cycled to and from work in the dark. Those 2° difference in sun angle compared to Manchester makes a difference! But now the clocks have gone back and the mornings are not too bad anymore.

The difficult month of September

The difficult month of September

Well, it can’t always be amazing or easy. So to stick to this blog being an honest diary I will just tell it like it is. September was a tough month for me but it was also a month where I have got the most things done! It might not be much but keeping these baby steps in mind will help me build a picture of what I have achieved over time. And yes, I know I have to not be so hard on myself but when you’re in a deep dark hole it can be difficult to think logically.

En smule af august i København*

En smule af august i København*

*Translation: A bit of August in Copenhagen. I’ve not spent the whole month in Copenhagen because my granddad, who lived a good life and to a ripe old age, passed away at the beginning of this month and I took compassionate leave to attend his funeral in Hong Kong. The positive side to this trip was that we got to meet our two newest cousins  a 3-year old girl and an 18-month old girl who were very cute and definitely brought joy to the occasion. In addition, I also had two planned weekends away! (It is summer after all. And I now live in Denmark where summer holidays are a human right.)

Highlights from July in Copenhagen

Highlights from July in Copenhagen

Since my brief update after being in Copenhagen for one week, I’ve had a good July! If I had to score it, I’d give it a B+ because it’s been very sunny and the majority of my important admin has been sorted out but my science has been slow in terms of new experiments (which is to be expected when moving labs).
