Publication status

Status: not accepted. Today it's the 9th of April 2020 which is the notification day for full papers at DIS 2020. I've waited over 2 months for that email and today (a bit later than expected) it finally came. Unfortunately, it contained the word 'sorry' and I have now learned...

Doing basic shit

1 day ago, for day 99 by Kirstine Granzow Larsen 🏆

Today I feel more accomplished than I have for at least a few days. I managed to get up early-ish — after just 6 hours of sleep due to a Twitter hangout — and take care of a bread dough I started yesterday (something called a biga). After mixing the...

Cooking in someone else's kitchen

2 days ago, for day 98 by Kirstine Granzow Larsen 🏆

Update from yesterday's post: I did not cry, but I feel better today. When you move out from where you grew up/lived with your parents or guardians and into the first place of your own there are things you expect to happen and things that surprise you. I've always...

Scheduled crying

3 days ago, for day 97 by Kirstine Granzow Larsen 🏆

I've been feeling very thin today emotionally. Like I'm a soap bubble that's so close to bursting. It got worse when my parents commented on how I looked. I narrowly avoided the question 'How are you?' which would have made me cry for sure. I don't know what it is....

Passing the time with language

4 days ago, for day 96 by Kirstine Granzow Larsen 🏆

I've recently (about a week ago) found out that Duolingo works on my laptop! So I'm passing the time by learning French. I want to write 'relearn' because I took 5 years of French in school, but I don't actually feel I was ever able to understand/read/speak French. I have...

Flip the choice

5 days ago, for day 95 by Kirstine Granzow Larsen 🏆

My mom is currently in the process of picking yarn for a new project. She has almost endless possibilities of combinations (you could call her a yarn collector). Whenever she has narrowed it down she introduces a new color and has to redo the process (she used to work as...

Moving day

6 days ago, for day 94 by Kirstine Granzow Larsen 🏆

Earlier this week — maybe last weekend, the days seem to turn into one during self-isolation — I made a request to my landlords (my parents). I wanted a desk so I could sit and actually do some focused work like writing job applications and make an online portfolio. They...

Picking a new book

1 week ago, for day 93 by Kirstine Granzow Larsen 🏆

I want to classify myself as a reader, but the truth is I don't read that many books. My Goodreads reading challenge is set for 10 books in 2020 — that is one book more than last year. So not a whole lot, but probably still more than most people....

Paying back loans

1 week ago, for day 92 by Kirstine Granzow Larsen 🏆

I've been playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons lately. One of the core things throughout the AC game series is the massive loans you have to pay back to Tom Nook. This new game is no different. But I would say it's different than real life in many ways. One is...

When parents become people

1 week ago, for day 91 by Kirstine Granzow Larsen 🏆

For a good while as a kid, I was unsure what my parents' names were. To me, they were just 'mom' and 'dad'. I was more sure about my dad's name than my mother's when I was asked one day in school because my mom used to yell my dad's...
