Week 5 was tough for me, but I have learnt a lot and taken things positively. I need to improve a way of sending reports to my supervisors, for example: revise papers with tracked changes turned on after accepting comments, and leave what I have added to the paper clearly. I also need to spend more time working on the database search.
Luca suggested that I should quit teaching at the end of the contract because I spend too much time preparing the job. Apart from the lesson hour, I do some paperwork for it. His main complaint was that there has been little quality time for us to relax together over the past month. The current challenge is to gain the time-management skills to balance all of my work and private life.
