So… What’s up?

It has been 5 months since the last time I wrote here. What has happened since then? A lot!

First and foremost, I’ve finally finished my PhD! ūüėÄ This was probably the main reason why I’d been neglecting my blog for so long. The first three months of this year I was basically in a frenzy of thesis writing, experiments, paper writing and… job hunting. After the thesis was submitted on March 25, the madness still continued with preparations for the PhD defense: making presentation slides, hosting my sister and cousin—who came to give supports on the D day, thanks a lot, Dita and Dhika! :*— and arranging graduation parties. Finally, the D(efense) day was April 12, on which I was declared as Dr. Paramita Paramita! ūüôā

This was followed by another frenzy of post-doc position hunting, sending CV here and there, and a series of interviews (onsite and¬†online). Considering the options for the future was also giving me headache. Anyway, I’ve picked one that I believe to be the best for now, let’s see…

Life was definitely much more relaxed in May, but… my domain paramitopia.com was expired, and the website¬†where I registered this domain doesn’t¬†offer an easy way to pay the renewal fee :(. So, I will definitely¬†change the domain registrar. In the meantime, I bought another domain paramitamirza.com, which sounds more professional ;). I plan to host my academic/professional profile—publications, research activities, research output, etc.— in this domain, along with my blog. For now, only the blog is set up, but¬†at least I can start writing blog post again.

And now it’s June already!

I will try my best to fill this blog again with things happened during those 5 months¬†hiatus. Stay tuned! ūüėČ
