Monthly Homework - Dog days of summer
Professor Z (who is really closing in her PhD now, you go girl!), is back for good on her blog now and the first thing she does is giving us homework. Right in the middle of summer where teachers had no power and the days are sunny and long... *sigh*
No, just kidding! This homework is totally voluntary and I hope that she keeps this monthly thing up! Today's topic is "Dog days of summer" and as a non-native english speaker I had to google this first. Seems like the expression also exists in german and I never stumbled upon it. Who would have guessed?!
What I did this summer that I have never done before? I got my tattoo, did a lot of functional cell stuff at work (which I only dabbled with before so I learned a lot), visited 3 festivals in a mere 2 months and made big plans for next year...
I'm really not into heat. I feel like my brain stops proper function once the air reaches 25 °C. So when it gets really hot, I spend my day indoors with the windows wide open and a fan to cool me down. If it is possible, I only do stuff late at night once the temperatures cool down enough that I fell more intelligent than toast. For work this is not possible, so I drink cold drinks, cool my feet with water and spend every possible second in the cooled room which has 4°C!
