About my blog

Hello! I'm graduating this year from the double master degree of Industrial Ecology en Science Communication at TU Delft. This blog is about my final year at TU; how do I get sick of TU Delft so I can start my "grown up life" without getting too nostalgic the rest of my life about "my" University. Enjoy reading :)



De meningen ge-uit door medewerkers en studenten van de TU Delft en de commentaren die zijn gegeven reflecteren niet perse de mening(en) van de TU Delft. De TU Delft is dan ook niet verantwoordelijk voor de inhoud van hetgeen op de TU Delft weblogs zichtbaar is. Wel vindt de TU Delft het belangrijk - en ook waarde toevoegend - dat medewerkers en studenten op deze, door de TU Delft gefaciliteerde, omgeving hun mening kunnen geven.

Writing again

Did you think I was almost finished with my graduation work when I posted this message: "Green light, part 1 of 2"? Well… Think again! Today I’m crawling through my introduction, carefully rethinking which paragraphs to write and finding words that sound scientific enough. The frustration continues. 

I’ve got a brain that tends to diverge from whatever I’m doing. If I say: OK! Brain, focus: Let’s write this beast of an introduction. I start with the first sentence and the brain starts protesting. Merel! You need to read a bit more about this thing you want to write about. Stop writing, start googling. And when googling starts, my introduction writing ends. Hours later after I checked mail, facebook, twitter, facebook, blog, mail, twitter, mail, google, random webpage, facebook, twitter …. the day ends. Arg! 

But today will be different, today I’ll go and tackle my natural ways of distraction. I sit and type, that’s all. And tonight I’ll dream about my thesis writing and tomorrow I’ll sit and type again. Boring times ahead, but you don’t get your academic diploma by doing nothing (unfortunately).
