Empieza la semana de mi cumple y de la defensa de tesis de mi gran amiga @patricia_sma. Cada vez soy más consciente de lo que significa hacer una tesis y no me puedo imaginar, acabarla! Poti, eres una luchadora nata! Desde aquí te acompaño y lo sabes!
It's the week of my birthday and thesis defense of my good friend Patricia!
I'm realising what is write a thesis, but I can't imagine what is finish it! Poti, you are a warrior!! From Zagreb, I'm with you and you know! #phdlife#croatianadventure
It’s important when working on your PhD not to develop an isolated view of the world – Professor Daniel Davis of @officialuom shares his advice on keeping track of the bigger picture and how your research fits into it

Happy Monday! Even with now being in Kigali, #phdlife doesn't stop 😬 my to-do list for this summer:
▪ prep for orals [after not passing the first time around 🙄];
▪ write a prospectus;
▪ do research for one of my profs.
So in order to do get this all done, I found a co-working space called @impacthubkigali [in that baby blue building 👆] --this is just a nice place to get out of the house & feel [somewhat] more productive for doing so. You know, all while the bf is at work 😂 yet an added bonus is that I already met some cool people who also work from here #entrepreneurialspirit 🙌 // #aimtolivewell#tiuteam#tiuboston#gradschool#livinginkigali#thisisafrica
[Parents' Day in Youchien]
Weekend kemarin, sekolahnya Dafi' dan Lana kembali ngadain parents' day, dimana orang tua bisa ngeliat langsung aktivitas anak selama seharian di sekolah.
Kegiatan ini, selain tentunya buat ngenalin aktivitas anak, merupakan cara TK di Jepang buat mempererat bonding si anak dengan orang tua nya. Orang tua ga hanya jadi observer, tapi juga ikut dalam kegiatan kelas, mulai dari main games bareng sampe ada yg volunteer bacain buku cerita.
Seru banget memang kegiatannya, meski jadinya harus seharian sampe sore ngikut kegiatannya skrg, karena si lana-chan jg udah masuk TK dan giliran kelasnya kebagian yg sore 😄
Beres kegiatan di sekolahnya Dafi' dan Lana, eh istri dpt info dari ibu-ibu di kelurahan Miyamae kalau tnyata di Supa yg baru, harga bahan pokok lagi diskon gede-gedean, akhirnya kita kalap deh di Supa. 😅
Jadi inilah cara kita sekeluarga memanfaatkan momen lebaran jauh dari keluarga di tanah air. Meski mungkin ga sekomplit kalau bs kumpul keluarga besar, tapi momen-momen seperti ini yang tentunya jg akan membekas nantinya 😊
Today, I had to let my not-very-neat desk go. I sat at this very spot for 3.5 years, and this spot has been a reminder of all the ups and downs I have been through during my PhD studies (and survived! :D).
The first note I put up on the board says “what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger!” and that was the result of immerse disappontment I felt when my first experiment worth of weeks time went to a trash bin! At the second similar case I put up the second note that says “Don’t give up!”... I then decided to change my attitute and instead of crying over failures, celebrate all little things that reminds me how lucky I am to be where I am in my life, be surrounded by kind, loving and inspiring people, and do what I truely and deeply enjoy: #research Months later, the whole top shelve was filled with the “little happy things” :) and I am truly grateful. 💎 #phdlife#Day2DayLifeOfMe
The Leopard #seal has two modes of feeding.
The first picture demonstrates the interlocking dentition that allows it to filter krill out of the water column. But the Leopard seal is also unique in that it uses it's #teeth for raptorial #feeding
Picture two shows the massive wear facets and breakages on the canines from a lifetime of chowing down on penguins and fishes.
This ability to feed both on both the macro and micro level allows this animal to take advantage of multiple feeding niches. It is likely that this aids the Leopard seal in traveling so far around the Southern Ocean.
