The time for reflections

Claus reviewed his past year over here (danish). A good idea to do once in while, and this is certainly the time for it. So here goes:

In 2005 I:

  • Graduated from Aalborg University. I'm now a cand.scient in Computer Science. Don't really feel different though.
  • Went to Africa (Kenya and Zanzibar) for two weeks. Traveling rocks. Never imagined infrastructure could be so bad.
  • Applied for Ph.D. scholarshop - and got it!
  • Realized that I needed to do something else before starting to write a Ph.D.
  • Went to Oure 'Højskole" (Sport College). Probably the best thing I ever did. I miss all the people from there, hopefully I will see some of them again.
  • Started running and riding moutain bike.
  • Had 5 injuries due to excessive training (three from running, one from swimming, and one from Aikido). Also had a strained angle, a bad toe, and probably a couple of other things.
  • Started my Ph.D. study.
  • Went skiing for the first time in seven years, even though my last ski adventure costed me a twisted knee, which resulted in three times knee surgery. I had fun (skiing that is).
  • Moved home again (argh!).

In 2006 I will:

  • Get my own apartment (high priority).
  • Be less stressed.
  • Get into even better shape.
  • Run a ½ marathon.
  • Learn not to overtrain.
  • Spend more time outdoors.
  • Climb a mountain.
  • Travel during summer vacation.
  • Invent some crazycool grid thingy that will make me a world known grid researcher.

Got a blog now

So... thostrup.blogspot.com is me now. All I need now, is to actually write something and have people read it. I'll look into that later.
