It’s amazing just how quickly everything is moving along. This morning, I noticed that the sky was starting to lighten when I was waiting for my bus in Lauttasaari. When I made it to Hanasaari, the sky was reddish at the bottom. The moment I sat at my desk at work almost the whole sky was lighter and this all happened in a very short period of time, maybe half an hour!
The sunsets are also quite beautiful on days like Monday or today. The reds are incredible!
I finally finished the six reviews and filled out all the forms. I’m drained, I really am. I read all the papers last week and all I did today is reread my notes and fill out forms and it’s still really tiring. I feel like I spent the day killing bunnies or something of the sort.
My main problem is that I’m good at giving constructive criticism on papers because I have had loads of training rereading my dad’s papers and being the editor for group papers… but I’m bad at wording my criticism so that it doesn’t sound too mean. I prefer telling a person face to face what I think is wrong or send them a long email explaining everything. Just leaving comments on a form is not enough, or at least I feel like it’s not enough but what can you do? I know from experience sometimes you get awesome reviews where everything is nicely laid out for you… and then there are reviews where you spend hours scratching your head trying to figure out what the reviewer meant.
Now I just have to reread all the forms tomorrow with a clear head and that will be the end of that.
