Kouda Entry_291: PhD

Ever wonder what being a PhD student is like? Well here’s a brief summary.

 

What my PhD makes it sound like I’m doing:
291 - PhD - 01

What PhD is like 99% of the time:-
291 - PhD - 02

While my computer was in the middle of “Installing update 106 of 138”, also known as “WTF IS TAKING SO GODDAMN LONG!?” and I couldn’t do anything about it, I decided to draft out an entry.

So, thank Microsoft’s crappy updates for the blog update combo. Then go burn their office down for making me miserable. Tee hee.

Kouda Entry_290: 27 Things

Honestly, I’ve trying to bring back my annual Birthday post. The concept of which is to make a list of events that have occurred in the past year. And the number of items in that list has to equate to my age. This way, each year, I’ll be motivated to try more and more new things. :3 (and simultaneously giving away my age. lolwtf…)

In 2009, there was Kouda Entry_128: 22 things

In 2010, there was Kouda Entry_188: 23 things

In 2011, there was Kouda Entry_226: 24 things

I’ve missed 2 entries (2012 and 2013) due to my studies. But, I did my best to make sure the 2014 birthday entry happens (albeit a little later than it was supposed to be. Huehue.)

And so, here’s 27 recollections of the past year (2013-2014)…
