This week has been full of stress and IC flare ups. But I’m trying to not concentrate on what bothers me, and instead, the good moments:
🌀I have a supervisor!!!!
🌀I wrote a proposal that will be the foundation for my thesis project. 🌀I submitted my first solo manuscript after weeks of procrastinating 🌀right now I’m eating Thai food and drinking a vodka soda and doing NOTHING ☺️
This feeling is contagious! Share your victories— big or little—- below!!
Happy Friday, friends! 🌈
✨As the weekend is upon us, I’d like to ask you one question: Are you choosing to walk down a path in your life that’s leading you to success - or - are you taking a bench watching your life pass you by? .
✨There could be multiple interpretations to this question, so I won’t explain my own interpretation of it because I don’t want to bias how YOU see the question. I just want to impress upon anyone who reads this that it is YOUR CHOICE to take your life where you want it to go, regardless of your circumstances. There is no excuse for just letting life take you where it wants. You don’t want to wake up one day and have regrets. You can’t make up for missed time. ⏱⏱⏱ So don’t take a bench in life for even a minute - keep walking the path to success!!!

To my eye.👀⠀
Got a chance to be the part of trial lecture for Associate Professorship position at the faculty. I'm having strong flashbacks from my 1-2 years at the Uni with anatomy/physiology lectures. The same Latin/Greek-word-terminology, just with some Norwegian phrases in-between.😅
•FRIDAY• Diary entry 20/9 - TGIF (am I right?) today I will be getting no work done. I’m having a very busy Friday, I have a few appointments to head to, and then I’m driving back towards my old university to meet with a few friends for dinner which I’m super buzzed about! (No plans for tomorrow so I’ve switched my working days around) ______________________ On a work note my new (very cute) stationary arrived this morning (my poor postman, he’s here most days with a new order 🙈 - I craft a lot so there’s always something arriving). ______________________________________________ Im hoping one of my SV’s will get back to me today with their feedback on my ethics forms! That way I can spend the weekend making changes and send the new copy to both of them before the other looks at the old one! 🙈Check out the blog (link in bio) for yesterday’s British Library Trip and Tips. Happy Friday!
Tam coğrafyayı sevicem yeryüzü şekilleri karşıma çıkıyor 🙇🏼♀️
Finally! 🥳 I started this ambitious (if not crazy) project to build a North Sea food web. We started this project with Romain in September 2017. Thanks for all the mental support from my MARmaED peers.
It took us:
1 intense months to develop the basic concept,
2 months to get the right people on board,
1 year to collect the data by reviewing 150 years of research (made me cry a little as I did most of the work alone),
4 months to analyze,
8 months and probably more to write and answer criticisms over 3 rounds of review.
I used to hate this paper, which seemed to steal time from my PhD, which was supposed to be a side project, which brought so much frustrations in my life and pushed me on a sick leave path.
It is a huge victory to have been reviewed by Dominique Gravel, a researcher I value, and to get it in Ecography.
Always, remember that behind each papers, they are women and men putting their dreams and souls into those few pages of text. There might be years of work, although you will read it in just a few hours.
Enjoy the reading. I published the popular summary on my blog (link in the description) and on Ecography blog.
1 Tip for you: although some reviewers may sound harsh, never take it seriously. They are here to improve the quality of your work.

#tbt to last weekend when we're enjoying the last days of summer outside 🔆👒... ➡️Reality today is my laptop screen 👩💻 with 626273 opened tabs while I try to write as if there was no tomorrow: "Hey Google, finish my degree" 😆
#tbt do último fim de semana quando eu ainda estava curtindo os últimos dias de verão por aqui do lado de fora🔆👒 .... ➡️Realidade de hoje é a tela do computador 👩💻, com 636373 abas abertas enquanto estou aqui no processo sofrido de tentar escrever como se não houvesse amanhã 😆
For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved to learn.
When i started school at the age of 2, I gravitated toward school work and would beg my teachers to read to me or give me something to do.
At the age of 6, I made it my top priority to never miss school because there was no way I could miss a day of not hearing my teachers lectures.
By age 12, I was reading every book I could find at the library and reading to kindergarten students.
I could go on and on and on to tell you about my passion for learning,
but what I really want to talk about my struggle with it.
My brain works like an old clock. You have to wind it up, let it set and then it starts ticking.
Well thats how information goes into my brain. I have to hear it, let it resonate and then I can start thinking and acting on it.
You may think, “Tori, you’re not special. Everyone’s brain does this.”
Well, unfortunately, mine works a lot slower than you think.
If you ever meet me in person, I will smile and laugh and probably ask you to tell me your name, what you do, what your research is, about 3x, sometimes 4. And it won’t be because I’m not listening, but because It takes that many times for my brain to process information.
I started noticing this in high school.
I took AP Calculus my senior year and probably the most challenging class I ever took at that age. As an accelerated course, we moved faster than my mind could process. I struggled. Extremely struggled. I had to go to a the class an hour early every other day (class started at 7) to do extra work AND have a 5 hour study session with my teacher on the weekends just to stay on track with everyone else.
The same happened in college. I started taking classes that moved faster than I could possibly imagine and my brain could’t keep up. I studied everyday for hours and hours.
It was the hardest time of my life and it got so stressful and overwhelming that I considered changing my degree.

In honour to Flex Friday, here a short clip of the Zottman curl's 💥, named after a famous strongman💪🏽 ————————————————————————
This is one of my favourite arm exercises as the Zottman curl's pronated (downward-facing) grip on the way down ensures you're not just working on your biceps’s, but it also helps work your forearm muscles. ————————————————————————
Follow @pharma_train For Health / Fitness / Nutrition advice.
Stand holding two dumbbells with your arms fully extended, palms facing forwards. Curl the weights up to shoulder height, taking care to move only your forearms. At the top position, while squeezing your biceps, rotate your wrists until your palms are facing away from your body. Lower back down to the start position and, at the end of the move, again rotate your wrists so your palms are facing out.
