Tomorrow is my first day of teaching after more than 4 years….I am a bit nervous, I am supposed to complete the lecture slides but it ended up I completed the slides just now…:P. Preparation will be more challenging as I am now have to adapt on my new timing. My Wafida is in her deep sleep now and I am ready to sleep next to her now.
I am blessed to have my baby for 5 months now….Even though life is upside down sometime, but I am happy to be with her 🙂
Class will begin next week…I am still in the midst of preparing slides etc. Supervising the MSc and PhD students are real challenge!!. On September I will have my own PhD student doing swarm robotics. Should learn on how to manage my time in supervising, teaching and being a mom and a wife at the same time, On top of that, I had my first experience in examining a MSc student this week, and now becoming her post-viva supervisor.
Will update definitely later …
For me , it is important to make sure that the research in AIS and swarm robotics to continue. Therefore me and I PhD office mate a.k.a K*** La* will start thinking about what we should do next ..@#$##%#%#%. We were both supervised by J** T****s and have lots of thing in common. In terms of research, we did more a less the same research and we discussed a lot!! He helped me during my tough time and so did I. He completed his last month and I completed mine this month ( he started later than me anyway!!). But the main thing is after the hurdles, we managed to survive.
I am indeed very happy. Alhamdulillah. Last year was the end of my PhD in Y**K U*******Y.
My viva took place on the 27th of Septermber 2011, a few days before I flew back to Malaysia. It took around three hours in general and it was a nighmare. Both examiners asked lots of questions and asked me to do lots of explanations. After the battle, they seemed pleased with the thesis but I need to do corrections with some of the structure of the thesis.
Even though I had completed my viva, it did not mean that I have obtained my PhD. 2 months were given for the corrections but since I am already back in my country, the correction lists came late until early December. Then at that point I was heavily pregnant and about to deliver my precious baby. I managed to complete half of the corrections and completed most of it after my confinement period and yesterday, I received an email that totally end my PhD work.
I’ve checked the finished thesis, and it looks really good: well done.
I’ve given the form stating that it has passed to J***th in the department, to forward to the University.
All the best,
To those who are still struggling , your time will definitely end sooner or later. Have faith and work hard to achieve it. InsyaAllah.
