Another week has flown by in what feels like just a blink of an eye. I am buckled down at home, wrestling with the beast that is the dissertation. It’s merely a matter of a few more weeks (hopefully), but of course other things come up at the most inopportune times. The interruption come in various guises, most recently in a short-notice (as always) translation job that I basically had to accept, since I don’t want my clients to go elsewhere. That was my weekend then: 12+ hour workdays, just like during the week. I did manage to sneak out for a couple of hours to get some exercise and enjoy the sun, though. As we often do, we hopped on the subway to Donauinsel and went for a nice, relaxing walk – and admired the water skiers doing their thing on the Danube.
