LAST FEW DAYS

I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is over self. –Aristotle

DAY 0:

I am in the very last stage of my student life, writing up thesis. Life in the last two weeks has totally changed. I hate lazy, sloppy, and I thought I am far from that. The reality tells otherwise. Efficiency is a major theme in my field. However, the thesis work just revealed how inefficient I am. I was easily distracted by trivial stuff. Above all, I think I have become soft over the last few years.

I don’t need to please others. But at least I need to be satisfied with myself.

From now on, regardless of who I was before, never yield myself to desires.

Get things done!

DAY I:

FINISH THE PAPER, NO MATTER WHAT!

You can do it!!! Always remember, somebody will be there to make sure that you never disappear, evaporate, dissolve, fade, flee, melt, vanish, etc.

DAY II:

Start part III. Lay out the basic structure. Refine the formulation part.

DAY III:

Draft numerical study part.

DAY IV:

Continue work on numerical part. Main part of this section is done.

DAY V:

Schedule the defense date. wrap up the numerical part. Start writing the model part. (take a rest after schedule the defense date).

Read literature. Not much progress.

DAY VII:

Wrap it up. No matter how ugly it is!
