A little bit of support

We recently adopted two cute little friends.

Two gerbils

They are tiny, fluffy, curious and adorable, and I love them.

They are called gerbils – a happy type of desert rats – and they promised me to support me through the rest of my PhD.

This tiny but appreciated support seemed to have worked already immediately, as last week was a fabulous week at work, with one paper accepted for publication, another co-authored paper accepted for discussion and a third one finally finished and submitted.

As I said earlier, autumn is for writing, and that seems to pay off fairly well now. I am pretty excited to finally reveal soon some of our findings that I had to keep secret for the online world untill now. So please stay tuned for other parts of my PhD-story.

Until then, enjoy these pictures of my two little friends, and let them bring you as much luck as they brought me.
