Just like last year, here is my year of blogging: the first sentence of the first post of every month. 2013 was a year in which a lot happened: my PI decided to move (but we could stay), my husband got a fellowship which enables us to move back to the homecountry, where I found a job too, and we welcomed a new addition to our family! Right now that new addition to our family is napping, while I am purchasing our plane tickets to return to the homecountry, which means our adventure as post-docs in the US will soon come to an end. It’s nice to go home, but there will be a TON of things I will miss about living here – something for a different post some other time. Not to mention the hassle of moving an entire family + acquired stuff across the Atlantic…
January: Nothing says back to work after a good nice vacation like a good spell of the post-holiday blues.
February: I was tied to my electrophysiology rig for the past three days and completely missed the #postdocalypse hashtag on twitter.
March: The other day I talked to another post-doc who is in hir fifth year and about to leave the lab.
April: There’s a bunch of things going on that I would LOVE to blog about, but for several reasons I have decided not to.
May: Before BlueEyes was born I knew I wanted to give breastfeeding a try, but I didn’t have any particular goals in mind.
June: This morning I got the dreaded email telling me that I’m not invited for an interview for the important home country grant I applied to.
July: Whenever we go back to the homecountry, I’m excited about all the things I can eat therethat are hard to find here in the US.
August: I really appreciate that my parents tried to raise us with gender-neutral toys.
September: A while back I wrote about pumping milk at work and the other day I got an email from a reader asking me the following:
October: My homecountry is getting ready for Sinterklaas, which means lots of people need to buy toys and the large toy stores send these big books full of ads to people.
November: This weekend, I read an article entitled: ”Rebels rise against science gone crazy” (my translation) in one of my homecountry’s newspapers.
December: So you know those lists that help you identify whether you’re in true labor or not?
Thanks everyone, for reading and commenting!!
