Diary Entry #Feb2021

My heart beamed and loosened in relief when my supervisor said that we can start working with the outlook of settling my Candidature Defense in the coming month of March. I started working diligently for a number of days, literally spending my Chinese New Year almost just for research writing. The hard work did pay... Continue Reading →

Life put together in words

1) Gone are the days when I felt anxious twitches in my heart before each virtual class with the necessary evil of switching on my laptop at least roughly one hour earlier to keep technical complicacies at bay.
