A new week, a new task list to tackle, although not all items are new of course. A week in research can really seem repetitive week after week, but that’s the nature of things until it’s submitted as a paper for publication and be accepted into a journal.

  • Analysis of possel for BGP genes
  • Reading : 8 SNP papers and 2 genome papers
  • Preparing research presentation for next week
  • Preparing journal club presentation in a fortnight

Personal life wise, things are going to look a bit dead beat for this week, since I’ve taken it very easy last weekend, what with visitor and all. This week would be to make up for the time lost. But I’m also going to check out this dance class on Thursday evening with my friends. I hope that’ll be good!


Task List : 20-24 Jan 2008

19 January 2008

My work task list is seemingly short at the moment, but entails a lot of work still. Just another 5 day prior to the trip to Paris, and I’m getting somewhat agitated with the apparent efficiency of my script. I think I should look into optimising the performance again.

  • Analysis of BHM data together with additional SNPs typed by our own lab
  • Recode the website for project BHM sliding window analysis
  • Running EC domain analysis on project BGP (new project)

On the personal front though, there are a hundred and one things that require my attention, but my current priorities should be the following…

  • Calculating household bills and get payment from housemates
  • Pay the bills before my holiday
  • Collect my air tickets to Malaysia
  • Clear up my room of papers and books sitting on the floor right now
  • Recharge all my camera batteries
  • Buy birthday present for K whom I’ll be seeing in Paris
  • Buy cookies, fudge, chocolate etc for my friends in Paris
  • Remind landlord re problematic heater in the bathroom

Well, it’s going to be another busy week…

Personal Task List

4 December 2007

For a change, I’m jotting my personal task list here instead of work task list. Work task list for now is pretty straight forward – get project BHM to completion. Personal one however, is piling up and I’ll need to get a bit more organised about them.

  • Prepare Christmas shopping list
  • Buy air ticket for going home in February
  • Get an electric toothbrush
  • Book table for lunch with DL in three weeks
  • Organise a dinner for my friends to come over
  • Pack books and give them away
  • Post Christmas cards before it’s too late
  • Send away signed contract for broadband service
  • Start coding for lab’s new website

One at a time, slowly and surely I will get there. But I’m hoping to get all these done within the week if I could. Would be great to decluter and get organised before the Christmas break. I couldn’t affort more time waste in the new year, as the thesis dateline looms.

Ps: my friend TG just told me I am such a control freak 😛
