Suddenly it’s day 2…
It’s actually the second day of my research. I arbitrarily marked the beginning yesterday. As the initiator I sign up for CiteULike. A reference management service. For the first 24 hours it help me much because I can see properly what interesting and important. However the reading have not started yet. Maybe during this few days of holiday, I may read them. They are lots of them. I can’t imagine reading them.
As for today I have been given a task by my mentor. He asked me to do some correction on the Grant Application to FRGS. Lots of mistakes. Lots of work. It’s okay, I have nothing to do by the way.

So I must make resolutions…
In the year to come I must…
Just a few days more for me to be officially registered again as a tormented soul of UTM students. Now as a Master Student. Its a little bit different from entering during Degree program as last time, mainly because unlike during Degree’s we were uncertain that we will be accepted or not but this time we know we get it when we hand in the application form. So no suprise.
During my buffer period here waiting for the registration day, I am a proper alien in UTM with no ID. I am an outsider that comfortably using UTM’s facility. As I write I am using UTM’s internet connection. Also Library service.
Exactly…both internet and library have mold my interest for these few days. Also I found friends in the process. The interesting part I found an Iranian who share a really similar interest with me. And that where it start…not really. Continue reading
