Highlights of 2018

2018 had gone by, just like that. It is sometimes scary how fast time flies by. My life has turned into a routine since I started studying. What I do every day is very predictable. Being sucked into the PhD life feels like a piece of clothing being tossed in a dryer (with no end to it). No matter how it spins, I am still in the dryer, just keep spinning. Therefore, anything that is non-PhD related excites me. Because it is like as if somebody stopped the dryer, took me out of it to do something else, before I had to go back into the dryer and spin. Not the most appropriate metaphor, but it does feel like that. Nonetheless, 2018 had been an eventful year!!
