It's done!

After 121 days, 2,904 hours, 174,240 minutes, 10,545,400 seconds or 60 pages, I've finally finished my thesis which I handed in today!

What a relief. I can't even believe it's done now...The past weeks have been very intense as my motivation decreased more each day.

As my last part in university, in about three weeks I'll have to present my thesis findings to my professor and that's it!!!

Rejected job offer

What a strange feeling rejecting a job offer. As I needed to decide whether to accept an offer by today, which I wasn't sure since there are other application outstanding, it's been the first time I rejected an offer for a graduate position.

I feel sad on the one hand but at the same time relieved on the other hand.

Time pressure...

...the time is running. Just few days left until I need to be done with my *** thesis. To be honest I cannot stand it anymore...Time pressure has been increasing from day to day, also due to the fact that I spent more time in the car and on the plane throughout Europe than sitting in front of my desk *sigh*.

The thing is that I have to come up with a decision in the near future which has again long-term focus and this is really asking to much of me at this stage. At this stage I wish I could look into the future. This would make my decision making process become much easier. Hmpf :-(

Where is the night?

Just strange watching out in the evening and recognizing that the sundown takes much longer in the summer period in Europe than in Shanghai where it used to be dark already at 7 PM.
