taking the day off (mostly), so I'm going to make focaccia ;)

And... application submitted. That completes all of them. We will see if I succeed.🤞 :BlobCatGoogly:

Application... written...

Am I technically free, now? Is it possible? :BlobCatMelt:

my last night in Leuven, at least for a while. I will miss it for sure.

Well, I guess I'm now officially a doctor in philosophy. And I even had fun during my defense.

PhD defense in two days and here I am thinking about writing a cover letter for a position I'm interested in. And I probably should also be working for another too... But also, I should be getting ready for my trip back home next week.

All I'm saying is, give me a break. I guess my body is already trying because I'm in a biphasic sleep pattern now since a week ago.

my examination committee has given me official permission to defend my thesis. the defense will be on January 5. :)

A short visit to the botanical garden came with a surprise visit.

linux, audio 

switched from pulseaudio to pipewire. seems to work fine, although bluetooth audio was a bit finicky. will try the jack interface next...

A friend asks for an intuition concerning an idea from his application proposal, call it X. I agree (my proposal also has a suggestion of X). And then i realize: hey, does not Prof. Such-and-Such from the examination panel hold in print 'NOT X'? :ferris_worried:

Application submitted, fingers crossed. Now I have to wait until next year around April...
