There comes a time for doing, and there comes a time for thinking. December has been the latter for most of us -- reflection about the previous 12 months, and contemplation about the 12 months ahead. As mentioned earlier, I'm going through a pretty dreamy post-graduation period, which has fallen on the cusp of the end … Continue reading it’s time to begin, isn’t it?
Finish thesis and get my master's degree? Check! Feel proud and accomplished and over the moon? In theory, yes. But I don't. The problem with perfectionism is you're never truly done.
