I swear this afternoon I had a great idea for a blog post for today. I realize now that I really should’ve written it down. I promise that one day, when it comes back to me, I’ll write it up. It’s gonna be great.
So what can I say? I got nothing! My head is a blank sheet…
However, I can share a little something, that might interest some. Or not. Also fine. Here it is. Today, we kicked off our biodiversity course with a brief introduction, in the safe space provided by Zoom. We got a nice group of about 30 students that we will teach all about drivers and functions of, and the threats to biodiversity. From next week though, we will start with workshops and paper discussions. It’s the second year for me, and last year was a lot of fun. I hope that this year, in presence form, will be as much fun. It’s gonna be strange, but in a way I look forward to it. We included some brand new papers to discuss, and we even got a couple more new aspects to the course, to have the student do some more hands-on work. It’ll be fun.
So, this also means that academic life, for me, is in full swing again. A wonderful source of blog writing inspiration, so it’ll only be a matter of time, before I find something to rant about again. Just. Be. Patient!
Until then – good night!
