Magnus Is Back

Yes, due to the fact that I woke up yesterday at around 4:30 AM, due to that huge thunderclap, and wasn't able to get back to bed again, I set to work to finish my revision. And guess what? I am done!


I thought I would be bringing this paper with me to accompany me on this trip that I would be making, but it turned out that I do not need to do that anymore. I am finished revising the thing, and I hope that I adequately addressed the problems that the previous version had.

Yeah, it is kinda funny to think that whenever you write something, you think that it is the best thing in the world, and then you turn it in, and then it gets back at you, full of comments, and then you realize that you write really bad, and then you try to fix it, turn it in again, and then you get it back with further comments, and you have to fix it again.

Hard work, yes, but I think it is just fair. After all, this is academic writing, and who knows, this might get published as well later. I remember when I first had a paper to be published, the revision process took a while, and the reviewers kept sending me back comments, to which I addressed in my replies.

But I have to say, it is a good feeling to have one's name in print.

So there, my baby is around, once more, in his third generation. Hopefully, this is the last major revision that I would make, and then after this, my adviser would hopefully pass it on to the second reader, who I suppose will just give minor comments for revision, and then to the third, and then after that, voila! It will be filed and then my record would say that I have that requirement fulfilled!

So there, I am moving along. Wow. I cannot believe time flies that fast, eh? This blog is already on its third year, and still going strong. I just renewed my domain ownership the other day, since I do not intend on closing this blog in the near future. So there, I will still be here, writing, traveling, taking pictures, the whole enchilada.

Just sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

  1. Oh, I don't envy you, paper revision drive me crazy! It's actually worse than writing the paper itself in my opinion.
