Winter time change and sniffles [week Oct 31 – Nov 6]

The title sums it up. Last Sunday the time has changed, going back one hour. What that means is that it’s getting dark sooner and, in theory, the dawn is one hour earlier. But in practice the time of the year, when you go to work at dark and come home from work at dark, starts. That sucks. I know, complaining about weather is meaningless but still. I don’t like winter (to put it lightly).

I didn’t workout a lot this week because I didn’t feel perfectly healthy. I think I went of Monday and then on Saturday. But I have a new gym card for November and I plan on using it as much as I can. So far I’ve been going to the gym 3 times a week and I didn’t really have a workout plan. I just did what I felt like. I want to change that. Few weeks ago, I’ve seen a workout plan on reddit and I think I’m going to try that one out. I’ll see how it goes. I want to try going to the gym 6 times a week. I like it anyway, it always picks up my mood when I workout in the morning and I feel way more productive for the rest of the day. So that’s how I plan to fight this depression-inducing time of the year.

Master Thesis Status

  • # of pages: 19
  • word count: 4258 (I’m writing the thesis in TeX using TeXstudio so I counted it as instructed here, don’t know if it’s the right way, hope so)

I’ve been writing a lot more to my Master thesis. I’m understanding the story that I want to tell better and better and I think it’s going well so far. I’m still not even in half (I’m somewhere around 19 pages; 40 pages is the goal page count) but I feel like I’m getting there at a solid pace. I just hope some other responsibilities won’t accumulate which would slow down this pace.

I’m going to be in Mikulov on Thursday and Friday next week. We are going for a scientific meeting/socializing with the group from Brno and the group from Vienna. Hope it’s going to be nice.
