Now where were we? Yeah, the feelings. I am going to be blunt and super honest here, on my thesis-defence, I didn't feel terrified. Not even a slightest. I feel mad. Furious. Angry. Disgraced.
Unfortunately, for the sake of profesionality, it will be better if I didn't mention any kind of event caused me those feelings I described before.
snapped by my assessor and uploaded to her Path account because she said she's proud of me. *tears*
Moving on, at the end of the day, I feel relieved, happy, satisfied, and proud. Partly because whatever happened, I stood up for my educational thought. I stood up for the theory I believe in. I stood up for my assessors. I stood up for my parents' money, friends' support, and Taylor Swift's songs (yeah, I made up this one). I stood up and that was what satisfy me the most. I didn't run out of words. I didn't let a certain person broke down my 300s pages of analysis just because. I defend my thesis, because for the sake of all the scientific papers in the world, that is the purpose of thesis-defence. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the most important thing in thesis-defence.
I would like to express my gratitude to everyone who took a part on this phase of life journey. I cannot stated them one by one (trust me, if I could then I would), so here's a huge virtual hug for everyone, like my parents, brother, friends, lecturers, a very friendly boys who works in a computer rental who helps me print out the very last page of my thesis because I ran out of ink at night, all the employees in all cafe/bistro/fast food joint for letting me typed for hours without kicking me out, etc.
I stood up for what I believe... and I am proud of it.
