Note to self: when work feels good

The past few months have been exceptionally good with thesis project and the amount of text that I have been able to write seems to be more than during the past year(!). All the pieces seem to fall in right places and for the first time I can safely say “I know what I’m doing”, which seems and feels remarkable. I have been able to keep the deadlines I have made for myself, where I have worked with each chapter for one month (although in July I worked with the first three chapters) and then submitted the chapters to my supervisors. This month I will work with chapter six, which is mostly about identities and privacy, and November is dedicated for the final (!) conclusions. My funding will end after Christmas, which has also been a good motivator, and hopefully I can manage to submit the entire thesis for final reviews somewhere around New Year or so.


The disposition seems almost like alive, since it keeps changing during the process and it’s so much fun to read old versions of the file. Here is one from exactly one year ago, and the latter one is from today.

But now, back to work, this is a marathon, not a sprint and I have to get some reading done for today!
