Today I went waterskiing for the first time! Courtesy of my graduate school.

The first time I fell at the first corner and had to walk back a painful rocky path barefoot for ten minutes, so it was very motivating to learn quickly. Afterwards I got a fealing for it and I was able to do several full turns of the lake without falling unless getting distracted.

My officemate made a video from me starting my third turn!

@bgcarlisle And now I have to explain to my officemate why I'm laughing

@bgcarlisle You're saying this like it's not a perfectly normal thing to do.

I have been tasked to start writing a paper draft but also I'm very distracted, so that sounded like the perfect moment to learn emacs and how to use it to write latex.

I saw too much emacs in my timeline the last months, now I want to know what all the hype is :flan_shrug:

I wrote to the french embassy on Friday, and today they replied that I should send all my files by post first, so then I can bring any missing paper for the appointment .

It's good! Less stressful about possible incomplete file.
But that means I have to gather all the pieces already now and *this* is stressful. :concern:

Good way too early morning :asleep:

My boyfriend will be here this weekend! :blobaww:
So I'm on my way to the airport with a thermos of coffee and almost not burned pastries wrapped against a heat pad.

Ready to rescue this dweller of warm places from our uh… 3Β°C.

@hope I spent the last hours just reading more blog posts from the same guy, I find his process super facinating.

I already receive my birth certificate. So uh, I guess I need to quickly ask for an appointment in Berlin.
It's happening quicker than I expected, it's a bit scary.
