29.10.20 - day 80? / quantum revision has made my brain permanently feel like a laptop with its fans at full speed trying its best to just deal.. anyway..
!! really excited rn because I finally sent out cold calls to some professors in the department to ask about research. It’s very surreal idk I’ve been scouring the department website for quite a while thinking of what research areas interest me (perhaps even before undergrad started), and things just became more concrete. Next semester (in 2ish months’ time) I’ll be doing a small project for some credits. and after next semester (in 6ish months’ time) I’ll be doing my final year thesis. Mad:”)
I probably should have sent one email at a time rather than three, I still have to decide what to do for the small project module among the three I’ve narrowed down
then say “sorry I took another project” to the other two professors and atm I’m not sure if I’ll carry on with the small project/something related to it for my final year, or whether I’ll switch interests by then LOL. But I guess things will get figured out along the way! So many options so little time;; uni just happens so fast
excitement aside, speaking of so little time, studying for quantum is really draining and there’s only a few days left before the final test /screams
I guess I’ll take an early break tonight. Hopefully I can catch up over the next few days but idk we’ll see. Just gonna give it my best for the last 2 and a half weeks of the sem:”)
