VSS is pretty much the usual blur. Writing this two week’s after the conference, I can’t really remember much, so lets hope that nobody was presenting a major breakthrough. The conference was a success though, as I managed to set up a few potential collaborations with new people. I suspect I’m perhaps a little bit too keen on collaborating with people, but it’s my favourite element of academia so I might as well make the most of it!
Also to be considered a success: I managed to get through the whole conference with no hangovers! I am clearly slowly getting wiser.
My mood was soured one day as I received a job rejection, but the next evening there were cookies.
So many cookies.
So everything is alright again.
Club VSS was its usual monstrous nonsense.
And onwards, to Ohio! A day and a half to recover from VSS, meet up with a post doc who I met at VSS (the two of us are planning a little joint project), stock up on supplies, pack, before heading to Montreal!
