After more than 3 months here, I think I am quite settled down, doing what I need to do. People might think that studying here in Australia, my job would be easy. They may thought from my IG account that I am having so much fun here. Yes, it’s true. I want to study well, but I also want to make the most of my time here in Sydney. So, I don’t want to be bothered with my PhD life and get suffered. I spend most of my weekends enjoying my life. Even just by walking 20 minutes to go to church, smelling fresh air, looking at flowers on my way, I’ m happy enough.
I know that a PhD student should read and write down his or her thoughts, but I never expect that it would be this hard. Everyday what I do is, listing what I have to do, read probably 2 or sometimes 3 to 4 journal article or even a book. I can read fast, but my problem is I also forget it fast. Therefore, I need to write and take notes, at least to know that I have read.. and if I forget anything about the book or journal, I just read my notes.
Well.. to those who want to know about my PhD life… it is not easy at all. I am overwhelmed with books and all my reading materials, but I tried to make it as normal to a PhD student. I hope to be able to always making a progress every week in my research. But still… can’t ever resist going out and roaming around as I want to travel more and more.. and want to balance my life 🙂
