I like numbers. They tell specific stories.
Like 18,000 is the number of words I have to write, for my Master’s thesis on the Malaysian Indian Identity.
My mission for the next 23 days (as stated on the countdown widget) is to complete the writing, editing and *surrendering process of the document.
*The act of surrendering in this context does not mean ‘to give up’, instead it means ‘to let go’ at the right time, and allow the universe to take over.
Yes, I know, I should have started this blog, ages ago. But hey, better late then never!
In this section, I intend to blog my daily milestones (regardless of how small or large they may be) as well as the dilemmas I encounter during this journey. I will also state my progress, thoughts, feelings and occasional epiphanies each day, to remind me that this task is not only achievable but purposeful.
I tend to forget sometimes.
As I reach the end of the road of my Master’s degree, I want to enjoy this journey. No matter how grueling it turns out to be (considering the amount of work to do in such limited time) I recall being immensely inspired and enthusiastic about researching on the topic of the Malaysian Indian identity. Somewhere along the way, I guess the overwhelming stress got the better of me and I began to dawdle at completing it.
I intend to enjoy this journey (or what is left of it)
I have come a long way and not only do I want to see this thesis through successfully, I want to believe that the process will have a positive impact on my personal growth as a writer and a thinker, while the published paper contributes significantly to the larger community.
I am hopeful.
