Closing of a chapter?

Seeing all the retrospective posts of 2016 on my Facebook feed suddenly gets me in the mood to start writing again, which admittedly has been dormant for quite a while.

2016 really flew by this year and passed by like a blur. The only fleeting memories I have is the long hours spend on my research project and writing my thesis, trying to beat the deadline. This was like a year of finality, where everything that I've been working on comes (crashing?) to an end point.

I can hardly believe I'm almost at the end of my 4 years plus PhD journey. It seems not too long ago that I just stepped foot in Germany and getting used to life in Dresden.  And suddenly right now, I have submitted my thesis (honestly, the details of its creation process still eludes me) and having to start preparing for my defence.

This year also saw its fair share of people settling down, tying the knot and babies being popped out (one or more of them) - a gentle reminder that life is passing by and people are moving on with their lives. At this age, I'm no wiser to where mine will lead.

Happy new year 2017 folks.

p/s: From my trip to Swansea,  at Rhossili Bay.
