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.
