I can feel my stress level rising as Easter, the master project dead line and summer are approaching. Even though this March has been the quietest March I have had in years, I worry more than I usually do. I know I should spend 10, rather than 8 hours working with my master every day. And even though I have less to do in scouting, I still have some projects and I know I don’t supervise them as well as I should.

There is still so much left to do with the project and I have only 8 weeks to go. I have gotten myself a sommer job, so I think I’ll have enough money for the summer and maybe September too. We’ll see. But less to worry about there ­čÖé

Tomorrow is my presentation for the Department of Biology and even though I have worked with my presentation this week (and gone through it with my supervisors) I still haven’t tried to talk through it… And I have to admit that I am a bit nervous. It is my whole master, what I have done the last 1,5 years. Scary stuff. Have to rehearse later today.

I am too slow. I wonder if I should start a new regime in the office, so that I am not allowed to leave before I have finished the goal I have set for the day. Either it works or I die of exhaustion. I think I need a hug.

On Friday I’ll be in Oslo and I will go wisit the PhD that made the genetic markers I have used in my project to discuss my results. I wonder how it will be. Can’t wait for Easter. Even though I will have to work with my project, there will be some time off and Erik will be back.
