Above the Fold — Thesis Update #3

By Friday, November 28, 2014 , 1

Over the past few months I have been fo­cus­ing most of my en­ergy on my grad­u­ate the­sis project at the Uni­ver­sity of Wash­ing­ton. It has been an up­hill strug­gle that has left me feel­ing both ex­hausted and ex­cited for the com­ing months. Any­one who has been through the ar­du­ous chal­lenge of find­ing and choos­ing a the­sis topic to fo­cus on can at­test to the men­tal pain that I am feel­ing. I do feel like I have fi­nally man­aged to put a few stakes in the ground, and I con­sider them to be mi­nor achievements.

Fo­cus, re­fine, move for­ward and re­peat. This is the strat­egy and the mantra that I have fol­lowed in or­der to keep me push­ing forward.

Fo­cus, re­fine, move for­ward, repeat.

Though, I would def­i­nitely say that pur­su­ing a mas­ters de­gree is not for the weak of heart, it has pushed me in un­ex­pected ways. It has been both chal­leng­ing and frus­trat­ing. I am still un­de­cided on whether it has been worth it for me or not. Check back in an­other week.
