UPdate: Movies vs brain fog :)

Tooth – still aching but less 🙂

Movies – Gandhi (1982), Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India (2001) and Apocalypse Now (1979) are done 🙂

Brain fog due to painkillers – Sad but true 🙂

Maybe The Avengers (2012) help 🙂

THESIS DEFENSE MEETING: PASSED!

I cannot believe that I passed! 

Made a nice presentation about my project plan for the next 2 semesters and I convinced the committee. I wasted 1 year of thesis writing with depression and sickness and have 1 year left. So in 1 year (2 semesters) I will start from zero and finish it!

I spoke openly and honestly why I could not do as I planned as I was sick & depressed. I apologized but I’ve made a B plan with a Jan 2016 graduation date. They loved my plan and encouraged me I will have my first meeting with my Thesis Advisor next week and until then I will be preparing the questionnaire for data collection. Fine by me, I am a stay home sick person, so let the THESIS PROJECT begin!

The most important thing was that, all the professors said that I was one of their best students ever and I should not worry because they believed in me both in getting better and finishing thesis! They believed in me more than I believed in myself! It was such an honor.

I am so happy and relieved!

As a treat to myself, I will eat my poached pumpkin dessert and watching Gandhi (1982) from my IMDB 250 watchlist.

Love,

Alex
