On the podcast, BBC Radio 4 – More or Less: Behind the Stats, there was an interesting episode about Trump drinks 12 diet cokes per day, which made me realised it’s sometimes for the best that we live without certain things, at least once in a while..
Moved on 13 Nov to De Bilt. Just took a walk for the first time in the neighborhood. Now finally it feels like less of a foreign place. Cute bookstores, bakeries, chocolatiers, and a supermarket where they sell Mozartkugel!!
Four years ago, I would have never imagined that I would move so many times in my life. Beijing -> Shandong -> Warwick Uni -> Temp places -> Paris -> Temp places -> Rochester -> Temp places -> Utrecht -> Temp places -> De Bilt. Let alone that there are probably many to come.
But I think my experience is growing and I’m getting more used to it. Planning ahead is important; it is also crucial to not get too stressed about: we seem to be generally good at adapting. I would see it as similar to moving data. Good to learn a thing or two from the physical world in the process.
As always, his talk is very clear and helpful!
Some of the creativity fun: very re-energising!
3D pen: Gradually learning the basic of doing things 3d…
Walking in the neighbourhood: refreshing for the new year!
What a year!
I had a good ending of the year at the departmental lunch, student barrels, the reading club, and of course with friends locally and remotely. Hope everyone out there is having a nice holiday as well. A belated Merry Christmas and early Happy New Year!
