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 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 […]

What if saturated fat isn't that bad? Dietetic thought of the day

I couldn’t sleep last night, my mind was hard at work and therefore my body could get no rest. A few days ago I did something I haven’t done before. I bought butter. It was hard to find as it was well hidden and was modest and shy by appearance- bullied in to the corner by […]
