Words of Wisdom for the Thesis Writer

I found this a while back among my thesis files while cleaning my hard drive. Since nothing exciting really happened to my life lately, I thought I’d share this. I think I wrote this at about the same time I reworded “Miss Kita Kung Christmas”.

Words of Wisdom for the Thesis Writer

1. Better saved than sorry

2. A coffee a day.. is not enough

3. Eyebags are under the eye of the beholder

4. The early bird… is cramming

5. Early to bed and early to rise… defense.

6. Don’t judge a book by its abstract

7. All work and no play, is normal

8. Ignorance is a problem

Yeah, thesis messed me up quite a lot back then.

The road to professional bumdom.

I just found out that our cable has 600 channels, unfortunately, half of the good channels,we did not subscribe to. So now I’m going to have to beg my parents to put in the good channels. Like Discovery Channel, E! (I need my daily source of hollywood “news”), and other channels that show the good series (Glee, Community, Heroes, Lost…. ehem: de gustibus non est disputandum.). But I think I’d need to find a job first because that would mean we would have to pay more to get these channels. Meh.

I’m still in my bum mode, although I have started Mission: Get Published which I now renamed Mission: Impossible. I scanned through some journal entries that were published by the journal I plan to submit my paper to. I have to change the whole layout of my thesis if I wanted to be publish. I wanted to know what kind of papers the journal accepted, and I decided to focus on organization first.

I haven’t gotten far, but I am progressing. I’ve outlined what I wanted to do (Well okay, in my head, but that is a start). I plan to apply for another Masters degree in 5 years, so by that time I hope to be published. That’s big dream, I know, but who knows. Anyway, I plan to study Political Communications, probably somewhere in the UK since that’s where they offer it. We’ll see.

World Shopping Championships

I got one of the most interesting e-mails earlier:

So I get to shop, and win money? Wow this is a great deal for me. Unfortunately, I don’t have enough money to participate. Woe is me.

But this is a very tempting competition to join. I’m more likely to join this than any sporting event. Well I’m a girly girl, go figure.

Today, I found out I had a prayer group of 20 people praying for my thesis every Saturday until my defense. I knew it was divine intervention. Aside from that and the world shopping championship, nothing interesting really happened today, well except for that fake priest excommunicated a few weeks back (Link). Why would anyone do that.
