another milestone, a bigger one this time. submission of my phd thesis. it took me very long hours to work on it ... and less sleep ... but finally got it all together but it is not perfect. so now i am reading through my manuscript, the same one being read by my examiners before my oral final exam (viva voce), and i have found a number of mistakes already. thank God finally got it done. the trainor in our phd writing workshop said that the failure of phd students is not to submit their thesis, so if you submit, you are already one step to success!
