Someone joked on Twitter that the Low Lands need a new name now we're the per capita champion of corona cases. We're back in soft-lockdown because our government refuses to learn from its mistakes and waited until the very last moment to maximize lockdown length, it almost seems.

At least we're doing just fine. SO got a new job in September, back then it was a temporary thing until the end of the year, but now they're certain they can give her a year contract so that's dope. My academic paper has been accepted recently, is already published online in Open Access format even though I still need to proof it.

I'm taking a well-needed week off next week to dive into that and finally enjoy my PC again. I don't know how other people do it but after 8 to 10 hours of screen-based desk work and Teams calls I simply don't want to sit another minute behind the same screen. So I've been reading more books lately, getting more mileage out of my iPad consuming them contents, and have been cooking more from a phenomenal book on Indian vegetarian cuisine. Yesterday we made samosa's for the first time, which was great.
