I took some time off since July last year from blogging to focus on my Thesis writing.
It is with the utmost pleasure to let you know that I have completed it! My PhD Thesis examiners gave really great and positive results. They love reading the Thesis and thinks that the research is excellent. I passed!!!
This is it! Four years of blood, sweat and tears! I could not believe that I have gotten here. All the hard work, stress and sleepless nights had been paid off!
The final form of my Thesis had been prepared and submitted last Wednesday. I was filled with mixed emotions when I submitted it. I was happy, glad and relieved! There is also a sense of pride that I have achieved something big. However, I was also sad at the same time. It was a rather weird, unexplainable feeling. I have been in this PhD for almost 4 years and it feels like a part of me now. I feel like I have lost something now that it is completed.
But it is definitely a joyful moment. I am so thankful and blessed. Thanks be to God for His providence and sustenance throughout the years. All the glory to God alone 🙂
It is time to relax and celebrate such a great achievement!
I hope to write more posts now as the Thesis is done. Stay tuned!
Thanks for visiting my blog! Hope you have enjoyed the post! 🙂

Congratulation Suri!!! This is wonderful. I’m so happy for you. You made it. I was thinking few days ago how you are going and checked the blog. This is a very little delay. You must have worked so hard on the thesis and your book looks wonderful. I’m so proud of you Dr. Tan. 🙂

Thanks so much Erwin for your very kind wishes! Yes, this took me more than half a year to get to the final stage! PhD is really tough and challenging even until the end! It never failed to test my patience, determination and perseverance. I am proud and happy of what I have achieved too! It’s something money can’t buy!
I hope to stay in Melbourne but I don’t have a PR yet. So I am trying to apply for one now…It’s very difficult to get a PR now so will see how that goes. At the moment, I am enjoying this and relax for a bit before my next chapter starts 😀
