    I Had So Much Problems and Lost So Much Time!

    I have just started my third year of my PhD research. I had so many difficulties during the first two years. I started my PhD working on a topic that I didn't choose, I wasn't good in it, it was not interesting, and the worst of this was the director, he was unable to understand...

    Delayed Pragmatism

    After four years of perfectionism and loads of procrastination, I am now about to loose it all. I hope not, but it is easy to just have another slipage. So many things got on my way and so many times I failed them and myself. So many times I was defeated by technology, health...
