Google Slides and Minions #THESISDEFENSE #GRADSCHOOL

I've finished my presentation for my final thesis defense but before I submit to my adviser I have to print it and review it first.

My knee hurts already from sitting in an Indian position. 

My minions keep me company. 

Things to do:

- Print hard copy for thesis final presentation
- Review slides
- Review related literature (look for the source articles) 
- Finalize presentation
- E-mail soft copy to mentor and prepare hard copy for submission
- Print hard copy for personal copy and attach to thesis hard bound
- Forget about thesis and think about it after a week.

Enrolled for Final Thesis Defense

Not sure what I'm supposed to be doing now but I'm just drowning myself with movies and sleeping as an act of withdrawal and enjoying myself with zero thesis thoughts.

But to be responsible, I know I need to work on my PowerPoint presentation soon.. Maybe tomorrow... And send it to my thesis mentor.

Tentative date for my thesis defense is March 22, 2016. 

So ... I can afford not to think about it for awhile, right? 

I'm planning to go to the province before my defense and stay there for a week or so. I really do need a break. 

Super tired emotionally, physically and mentally but it will all end soon.

Burn out? Depression? Stress?

can't really identify what's currently wrong with me. I am 15 minutes away from deciding whether I attend my yoga class or just go home and pig out. I don't know which one will actually help me relieve out the negative feelings I am currently having. Well, duh of course common sense says yoga. But my desire to just be lazy and eat pizza or ice cream or Starbucks is so strong.

I just finished my chapter 4 of my thesis and printed it for my mentors comments. I am awaiting a lot of revisions. But at the least I think I'm almost done with thesis. I think slowly it's coming to an end. A good one I expect very much. 

I've been very lonely. It's a good thing I still have the strength to preoccupy myself with academic work so I won't have to think about being lonely. 

Anyway, I'm going to just update my blog with how thesis is goin by posting photos.
