It's that time of year again (Birthday, Christmas, New Year's eve) and most websites and news outlets are doing it. How has the year been?
I had to compile it anyway as part of leaving-ESA and I am pretty happy. I had nine (!) successful principal investigator telescope proposals and five as co-author.
As a first author, I had four papers and thirteen as co-author. Pretty productive. More of course are submitted or nearly ready to go.
I started a new job with Rychard Bouwens. Life in the fast lane of high-redshift. Suits me so far. It's very interesting, even if I am playing catchup here and there.
So professionally very ok. I would like to cut down the time it takes me to write papers (I am just a slow writer) or get various things done but who doesn't? Probably shutting Facebook more is a thought...
Paradoxically, my other new year' resolution is to blog more. Oh well, we will see.
