This week was probably the most densely packed week in a long time. Twice I had friends over for dinner, one day I visited my inlaws, yesterday I spent the entire day at my parents’, and Thursday I was planning and co-hosting our research group’s annual summer party. To make matters worse I’ve now come down with a cold, and I’m about to fly to Canada for a conference in a few days. I don’t know how but I seem quite the expert when it comes to over-booking my calendar. July and four weeks of vacation cannot come soon enough. I still managed to fit in some Korean here and there but not nearly as much as I had planned. Well, I guess plans are made to be changed πŸ™‚ I hope to get a chance to speak Korean while I’m in Canada. At least I already sought out some must-try Korean restaurants near my hotel. You’ve simply gotta mix business and pleasure when you can! πŸ™‚


      • Thanks! I have one more on Wednesday so I’m back in the library after a morning gym class so I won’t end up getting stuck to the chair here.
        Somehow taking an hour at the gym seems easier to defend than spending the same hour studying something that isn’t exam stuff… The gym classes are a lot of fun, though. Taebo (called thai-bo in Denmark for some reason) has lots of kicks and punches (without the bruises ;-)), but on day 2 you start wondering if anti-inflammatory cream can be used as body lotion. My first zumba lesson was just traumatising. A guy with a superman tattoo had loser hips than me – I’m not sure whether the joke is on him or me, though…


      • Haha! That sounds hilarious. I’d love to have seen that πŸ˜€ And, I know for a fact that you CAN use anti-inflammatory cream as body lotion. I had a minor shoulder injury last year and found one that was mint-scented. I walked around smelling like a giant cough drop for a week πŸ˜€


      • When you’ve never taken a zumba class before there is this odd balance between keeping up with the choreography and arms and legs flailing everywhere while desperately trying to look like you know the choreography. Let’s just say there were plenty of witnesses as it was πŸ˜‰

        Haha it sounds like your colleagues got a “warning” from the scent that you were approaching even before you turned corners πŸ˜€ I actually do have some anti-inflammatory creme, but I have never used it *everywhere* at the same time πŸ˜€ I can usually get away with just topical application, but on Sunday I wondered if I should just use it everywhere πŸ˜€
