Looking back at 2012 posts

Recap of the old year before moving into the new year and writing more posts. Incidentally (?) the first post of last year was the similar recap. I'm putting the title and the first sentence of the post for each month. This year has been less posting (as seen in December only one post) and when I read my first sentences I see more politics/feminism and less science per se. Maybe due to the fact that I'm in an less public research environment now than when I was a post doc?

Top four posts of the year
1) IWD Post this March 8th 2012
2) The Leafs are green and on their way up (hm how about that hockey)
3) I'm missing words, like 'småpåve'
4) I've slept with more people than K

Jan: The old year is over - Happy New Year!
A little late, as one could think it would be with a fairly busy time between Jul (Christmas) and visiting friends and family... 

Feb:  the most dangerous thing according to what I hear... 
... Is have grown women being able to have sex and at the same time protect themselves from STDs as well as becoming pregnant.

March:  the only rule that matters in my book... ^^ 
Simple: If you take the last* of something, let someone know**

Aprilfuneral and some random thoughts
Well, today was funeral day. As in, I had to leave work to go to a funeral for a friend. 

MayPlanned Parenthood = terroristorganisation.... in Texas... according to Judge and others...
You know, there are things that make me really really angry.  

June: Bradbury is dead, long live the books
I had some ideas about posting a little more regulary but then I got side tracked... and then today I read in the paper that Ray Bradbury is dead.

JulyIf only the assay had this correlation…
Maybe one of these things I end up with, my fascination with histograms, data and conclusion to draw from it.

AugPlanning fail...or "All days are the same, right?"
First premise: bacteria grow on the weekend (all days are considered the same from the bacteria's point of view)

SepI'm missing words, like 'småpåve' ...
Sometimes this "second language" business is more frustrating than others, sometimes I just miss my own language with the nooks and crannies of distinctions and nuances that I don't have in the English language. 

Octbingo for Presidental debate (USA)
I did my own Bingo brick for the debate tomorrow.

Nov: changing your (long academic) CV into a snazzy resume (intended for Industry)
I had to look over my Resume yet again lately (OK, rewrite a whole new one is more like it) and realised (yet again) that it is SO hard for me to cut out all these smaller pieces of information in order to fit the resume on one (or maximum of two) pages.

DecHoliday feelings
(note: it's starting out pretty bleak but turning into more of a good feeling thing in the end, promise.) 
It's this time of year when you summarize your year and then look ahead and make promises and thoughts and wishes for the future.

2010 is here
