Yes. That was my thesis on the side. I need to comply on the deadlines before I am dead. Every week is a paper I need to comply or revise. I should be dead by now! O_O
And yes. That was my girlfriend/cook/mom/hugging machine/boss. And now, whenever I need to watch my thesis and all other stuffs right there, I just stare and it will make me feel inspired to do things. I think of my life with her in the future, our plans, our goals together.
