The purpose of this blog is to give an account of my adventures during my stay in Shanghai, China.

Last leg

Woke at 7.30 a.m. Morning routine.

Got to work around 10 a.m. Started working on a presentation that we have to hold on Wednesday on the progress and the findings of our research. Clever as I am, I used the template that I made for our last presentation back in March.

Of course, presenting findings meant that I had to read through most of the paper and extract useful bits of information here and there. It took some time. I felt a little restless today and kept pacing around in the apartment doing everything but what I was supposed to. Needless to say, this did not expedite the presentation.

Had a long lunch and returned to my desk to finish the presentation. I kept getting sidetracked as I read through the thesis and wrote in new things, deleted old things and made general corrections.

Chatted for a long time with people in Norway, complaining over how easy they have it, having to write only 40 pages on their thesis and with no presentation. I suppose it is only fair as I have had a great experience doing my final year in China. Somehow I guess the universe is still in balance.

Finished the presentation, as much as I could on my own, and was satisfied that I had done enough for today. Went out and got some dinner to go. Watched Lars and the real girl. Brilliant movie. So good that I even watched the extra material. Really very nice and a movie I think even my sister would enjoy.

Sat surfing the net for a while and chatting to some people around the world. I really don’t understand how I survived three years in Reading without a laptop connected to the internet.

Went to bed a little past 11 p.m.
