Like a real and loyal companion, it was here everyday, every night. Sometimes it came on Weekends and you had no choice than to stay with it till late. This “real” relationship also happened to be passionate and motivated sometimes. But, here it is – it decided to leave but will surely send you a feedback about your time with it.

Submitting your thesis created mixed feelings. While some are happy after submission others have a big feeling of missing out or incompleteness.

The journey of the fighter was full of obstacles and hurdles yet you worked your way towards the ultimate submission of your thesis by finding your inner motivation but gosh this was stressing.
Why not treat yourself with your preferred food or simply spend some time with your friends. As much as you sacrificed your leisure for months – its time to get them back. Because the most important things in life aren’t things rather quality time with people you love, right?

Seize the wave
