And half of the year is done just like that. I have spent this month mainly doing my postdoc project and side project writing up. Productive month I would say.
The scale is 0 to 3 (0 – no progress, 1 – tiny progress, 2 – some progress, 3 – galactic progress).
I don’t really know how relevant my new year’s resolutions still are. Let’s see:
1. I will learn new research method this year
I became really good at assigning the markers and correcting processing the marker trajectories. Struggling to prepare a pipeline for processing the data now.
2. I will master one new statistical concept this year
I have learned that Excel is not enough for me as a statistical tool.
3. I will invest in relationships
I had a few catch ups with collaborators. Also, I have revived a project from two years before.
4. I will set up a healthy schedule/lifestyle
Not enough sleep. Training went well, lots of personal records. Eating from great went to bad… Does it mean that eating is correlated with sleeping?
5. I will set up an outreach plan
I’m posting everyday and it’s so much fun. I have done #reserchreignite challenge from @shoregnized.
Blogs were on hold this month unfortunately. I have written some drafts, but nothing to a publishable level.
6. I will come up with (my dream) a job
Nothing to report.
7. I will make a plan for the future (20 years)
Nothing to report here too.
8. I will dare to start the project which I have always wanted to do, but did not have a chance to realise
No new projects started. The additional project is going well. Every free minute I have, I spent analysing the data and writing it up.
9. Postdoc progress
The project is going great, crazy busy though. I have been constantly switching between data collection, data processing, data analysis and preparing reports.
Summary for June
Learning (points 1 + 2 + 9) = 1 + 1 + 3 = 5
Development (points 3 + 4 + 5) = 1 + 2 + 1 = 4
Future (points 6 + 7 + 8) = 0 + 0 + 2 = 2
This totals at 11 (out of 27) for June 2019. The least number of points so far. I have worked a lot, did not get sick, but was a bit stressed.
How was your June?
