my dateline is tomorrow morning and despite having my lists well ticked ahead of time, mistakes are bound to happen in my edited thesis!! and they are the last minute of prime importance additional work that needed doing by today but certainly NOT with my spidey-son around yes? no? NO! and he made me PROMISE to cook him spaghetti for dinner... so, here i am with emerging eyebags not able to sleep on my last minute minor spelling corrections or missing figures *sigh*. while my spidey-son is fast asleep after a series of harsh bedtime warnings and a crying and a hug and hugssss and kisses and everything elses in between that calls for a bedtime war. so, before i end my mini mini PhD quest tonight i would love to be reminded of my own quotes in my facebook recently just so i would always remember my PhD the way i love to remember it :)
PhD doers, PhD is a fun process if you don't take it too seriously. make PhD a good life to live in.. it is like a rental accommodation that you wanted to live in for at least 3 years. PhD takes time so be sure to not only spend but also appreciate time. PhD can be stressful sometimes so make sure that you have a circle of motivated, highly positive thinking friends around you, and if you don't have any, be sure to feel highly motivated and positive YOURSELF! PhD can be competitive sometimes, make sure that you avoid all the negative drivers i.e. avoid feeling envious to your colleague's achievements, but challenge yourself to do better everyday; smile to critics and take it positively; DO NOT procrastinate; don't be afraid to learn from your friends as we do not know everything we are all learners etc.
