Life lately and my new plans (and some Monday links)

Hi everyone,
it’s been awfully quiet around here in the last couple of months. The reason? Life! The life of a PhD student to be more precise. And relationships, and family, and now vacation. I almost completed my first year as a PhD student. The work load will probably continue to get heavier. However, I feel inspired to write again and I hope I can pick up the pieces of this blog again.
However, things around here will change: I have been doing a lot of research on environmental issues and zero waste lifestyle over the past few months and I am hoping to write about that here. Learning and practicing scientific methods every day, I’d like to use that experience to help people who don’t work in science understand environmental and medical publications. Maybe I’ll open a little science category… I am also not traveling as much as I used to but it is still my favorite thing to write about, so I will try to keep it up. I still have so many photos and past trips to talk about.
Let’s hope the motivation and inspiration lasts!!

If you’re curious what I have been up to lately, check out the links below 😃

  • Despite everything going on, I managed to get addicted to the show Girlboss on Netflix and it took me a good 5 episodes to recognize why I recognized the name „nasty gal
  • For some reason, in stressful times, I feel the need to shop. This month I satisfied my shopping craving at thredup.com and online thrift shop. I am actively trying to buy less new clothes to reduce my environmental impact and I wanted a new dress for the Mister’s younger brother’s graduation.
  • This list would be incomplete without a link to my favorite blog Hither&Thither. I stumbled upon a post, where Ashley, the blogger, was writing about the HBO series Girls. Having very mixed feelings about the show, I really enjoyed the discussion with her readers.
  • I was looking into a lot of zero/ minimal waste alternatives this month and I did make a couple of changes (will report back soon). However, the DIY natural deodorant bar didn’t make the list yet this month. I will keep this recipe for future reference though. For now, I got a packaging free deodorant bar from lush.
  • I stumbled upon this article “8 reasons why traveling is good for your health” and I thought it would be really interesting to look into scientific publications related to travel and health. As I said, I’d like to make scientific publications about interesting topics more accessible to my readers.
  • Also, check out my post about conscious clothing to get an idea of what I am planning in the future 🙂
Yours,
Juliet
