I thoroughly enjoyed writing for you. At this point, however, I need to concentrate on writing my thesis, rather than blogging. Therefore, this blog about the life of a Small European country is going dormant. I might post something every now and then, if I have anything exceptional to say. Perhaps I will even wake this project up with a kiss at a later stage, or start a new project and let you know about it, but for now – so long and thanks for the fish!
P. S. If you’d like to write a guest post for Small European Country, you’re still mostly welcome to do so – contact me here!
Of the past 10 years, I’ve spend 8 studying or working in a university in a small European country. In these years, I’ve learned the tides of the academic calendar quite well. Like the months of the Zodiac, each month of the academic year has its own mascot. The calendar I present here is tailored for the academic year in the Delft University of Technology, but with minor adjustments it is applicable to academic years of most small European countries.
During my PhD project I sometimes venture into the field to gather soil samples. For the sampling I am dependent on other people and their schedules (I’ll tell more about the details some other time). So far, the sampling seems to be destined to occur in the most inconvenient weather. Last time it was raining cats and dogs, and today… well, let’s say I am having difficulties finding my car. Fortunately, its a small European car, so I don’t have a lot of digging to do.
