Thoughts on life and death

15 hours ago, for day 110 by Kirstine Granzow Larsen 🥁

Life is such a strange thing, isn't it? Mostly because it will inevitably end in death. One day you're talking with someone on the phone and the next day you might be dead. To me, death has always felt like something very distant, something I will eventually get to plan...


Everything has (a beginning and) an end

1 day ago, for day 109 by Kirstine Granzow Larsen 🥁

I had my unofficial last day at work today! It started out rather eventful as I was a little late getting down to my bike. I blame the dream I had where I remembered that I didn't have to go to the university on a Saturday as there are no...


The city and nature

2 days ago, for day 108 by Kirstine Granzow Larsen 🥁

If everything goes according to plan, today was my second to last day at work with tomorrow being the last. Things can still change and my contract still runs till the 30th of April but hopefully, tomorrow will be the last day. I bike to and from work and tonight...


Uncertainty is scary

3 days ago, for day 107 by Kirstine Granzow Larsen 🥁

I had a thought today... I think I've entered a terrible pattern of rejection. That in itself sucks but it seems like I find the feeling of failure/rejection to be comforting in a way. It's a feeling I know very well as I've been showered with rejections in the past...


Anxiety and apathy

4 days ago, for day 106 by Kirstine Granzow Larsen 🥁

The weather today has been great. I've been inside my apartment all day. I have done none of the fun things I wanted but I have done a bit of cleaning and eliminated some dirty dishes and laundry — both of which have been very much needed for a while....


Tests and distractions

5 days ago, for day 105 by Kirstine Granzow Larsen 🥁

I currently have what looks like a mix between a smartwatch/activity tracker and an ankle monitor attached to my wrist. It's going to be there for the next 8 days to collect data on my sleeping patterns by monitoring activity, light, and temperature. I've signed up to be a healthy...


Asleep and sprinting

6 days ago, for day 104 by Kirstine Granzow Larsen 🥁

I doubt I have ever been as tired as I am right now! I've had 4 shifts in a row and I've biked to and from work all of those days. That's around 40 hours of work + 8 hours of biking (with a total of 100km). I feel like...


Reviews and ?s about life

1 week ago, for day 103 by Kirstine Granzow Larsen 🥁

Yea so the reviews are in and while I've only had time to read the summary, I can't say it's good news. I can see the reviewers rated the paper 2.5, 2, and 1.5 out of 5. All of those are bad and mean "Please do not consider this paper...


No reviews, but there's a space cat

1 week ago, for day 102 by Kirstine Granzow Larsen 🥁

We still haven't gotten the reviews on our rejected conference paper. In a way that's both good and bad. It's good because then I don't need to read someone's opinion and have them pick apart something I'm proud of. I know it's flawed, sure, but last year the reviews felt...


Be careful outside

1 week ago, for day 101 by Kirstine Granzow Larsen 🥁

Sometimes things get a lot easier when you don't try to sprint a marathon. Things take time and if you want solid results, you have to go at the pace it takes. If you try to rush it, you'll end up with a worse result or burning out. I had...
