This week is the fourth week since starting my internship at Waag. So far i really like everything i do and the overload of extremely interesting things to learn. Preferably i want to learn everything, fablab/bio-hack/fabrilab combined but sadly i don’t have enough time so i have to narrow my subjects.
I do want to focus on food (food-tech/science, but also engineering things for food). It doesn’t have to be really strict but i think it will be good to work within a theme.
I spent a lot of time taking care of the ferments. I do want do keep fermenting but i don’t want it to consume all my time. Although i don’t think it needs to, now everything has been set up. I can make a schedule for what needs to be done on a daily/weekly basis.
To optimize my workflow and to stay focussed i want to work with sprints. I want to pick one topic per week to focus on. I want to try to minimize the time i spend on documenting and do this in my own time.
I also want to write a small reflection at the end of each week to see if i completed my goals and to check if i can improve anything.
Last but not least i do want to stay flexible and allow myself to also focus on unexpected interesting subjects.
TO DO to incorporate this:
Make rough week-schedule (lectures, documentation, ferments, week-reflection)
Make list of subjects i want to research
Make list of possible projects
