[Week 93] Thoughts on the after-qualification exam

These three weeks have been intense in terms of work. I needed to get prepared for my first qualification exam, whose topic was on neurolinguistics. It was a lot of articles to review before the exam last Wednesday, I literally spent days and nights on it, not being able to see the sun outside! I…

[Saturday, December 29] How I got a professional website

If this week could be summed up in one word, it would be “professionalization”! Let’s review this last week of 2018. Of course, it began with Christmas! But I’m in Asia, so I just cooked some food for three people, we ate, we drank white wine, and that’s all! It’s just a day like the…

[Tuesday, September 25] Have a break, go on a trip

It has been a tiring week, especially on Thursday. The day before, I had to prepare my presentation for the neurolinguistics seminar, and to make it as detailed as possible. This seminar lasts for 3 hours, and we are only two officialy registered students. Then, each of us has to present for one to one…
