Hey, ladies and gentlemen, it’s 2016! Already. Let me wish you all a Happy New Year! It’s been more than two years since I started my PhD journey. The same time span can also be mentioned about me blogging here. Writing blog entries was at times challenging, at other times fun, but it’s never been a burden.
And that’s why you haven’t heard from me for over a month now. Because the last month of 2015 wasn’t easy and wasn’t fun. And I was in no mood to put together a blog post. But now it’s January, 2016, the first snow of the season has fallen and I am looking forward to another exciting year. A very exciting to be honest. This will be the year when most of my field studies will take place. The first round of the first field trip was fun, it was entertaining and I am looking forward to round two during the 2nd week of January. During the last supervision when we looked at the materials I have found at the Technisches Museum in Vienna, it became apparent once again how I need to tune my thinking to the wavelength of museum professionals. There were events and stories which I found interesting enough, but in order to fully explore these I still have to rely on my supervisor. So even though I am not too keen on making any new year resolutions, one thing I will try to put more effort into is honing my museology sense.
Elsewhere, 2016 shapes to be another interesting year with a lot of different projects already looming on the horizon. But 2016 has to be the year when I start to let things go, don’t take on too much work, and in general try to change my perspective on life. See, I did not want to make resolutions, but I finish this short entry with those after all 🙂
