This is one state of mind I never thought I'd experience. The state of total numbness, where you have worked your brain so much, that it kind of starts laughing at you in the end.
Only, that there is no end.
It's nearly 11pm right now, and I'm still at university. My lab is deserted. Nobody is around. On the second day of semester, what do you expect? :P
But I'm around. And I know one particular lab downstairs is still full of folks.
If only that lab would get farigh, I'd go home too. *deep sigh*
Waisay, one thought strikes me so often now. Allah (SWT) just had to Say "Kun" (be) and insaan (man) became (Fa ya kuun).
And we're going absolutely BOLONEY over ONE simple robot and it takes years and years to function (fully).
Makes me feel humble, really.
It's been over 12 hours I've been in university today. And it's been 16 hours since I've been awake. Self pity threatens to drown me in ... but I remember that I'm doing PhD (Parhai Hawwanak Deewaani).
It's bound to be this way.
Oh by the way, I had a really good discussion with my supervisor today. He finally PUSHED me. Thank the Lord. I am a person who works only when somebody superior ups the pressure. And he finally did.
Now, I hope to get some research done this semester. And no coursework - thanks very much.
Except a Math course. I would have loved it, had it not taken so much time. Or required a thorough background in Linear Algebra. So I (the smart girl) thought I'd take Gilbert Strang's lectures home (to Pak) when I went on vacations. And do them all.
I didn't even do 2 !
And they're 32 in number.
So here I am, frantically watching one lecture after the other. Each lecture takes nearly an hour. And guess how many I've done in 2 days.
8. That's it! *wants to pull out somebody's hair - slowly - one by one*
Anyway folks *glumly*. Boy, is vacation over or what. So long!
PS: Anybody knows a good Arabic online course I can take? Highly recommended to keep me sane over these months...and years...and years... and... Okay I'll stop. It's too overwhelming to bear.
Highly relevant, this: *chortle*
