Comic strip about dietitians!

Yes, I have found yet another thing to keep myself occupied with, and that is my very own comic strip about dietitians. I hear every day misconceptions about dietitians, and dietitians (and dietetics students) have quite a good time laughing at them. Some misconceptions are truer than others, but most of them are just ridiculous. […]

Very tired – uncertainties about the future keeping me awake

I didn’t sleep to well last night, many thoughts and uncertainties in my head. I was lying awake until four am, before dragging myself to the living room and collapsing on the sofa. For the last couple of weeks I have been applying to various jobs, somewhat uncertain whether I want or should study this […]

My Bachelor Thesis VI: page-count trouble

Time to get serious again. As I mentioned earlier, the thesis is quite long. We (me and Cecilia) had to keep it within 10-15 pages long, something we thought that we had accomplished. This was until earlier this morning when I read through the instructions again. Surprise! Apparently table of contents, abbreviation list and the […]

My Bachelor Thesis V: EndNote you are not my friend!

Our draft was put together yesterday after nearly 12 hours of non-stop work and after struggling with the darn reference program EndNote. My question is this, how are we supposed to know how to insert manual references in the program if we haven’t been taught the program, nobody can help us- or the manual doesn’t […]

My bachelor thesis II : A tricky research question

Halfway through the third week and we are already having problems. Our research question on weight cycling and blood pressure has turned out to be a little problematic, as there is a limited amount of human studies on the subject and few of the ones we found met our criteria’s. Yesterday we discovered that we […]
