Man, this week was stressful! All of us (who are doing our theses) were very stressed, tired, exhausted, weakened and whatever feeling that has our bodies taken to the limit with very minimal sleep.
This is because this week was our Endorsement Week. This is the period when we have to show our thesis advisers (ideally) 80% progress of our thesis boards. And if the adviser approves the boards he/she will endorse you and allow you to go on and defend your thesis proposal.
Yesterday (Friday, Feb. 18), it was late in the afternoon, me and my classmates looked pretty normal. The usual look we wore every week. But as the evening came closer, some of us ended up looking like this:
Especially the ones who only had 10 hrs of sleep the whole week.
Nevertheless, all the hard work paid off. All of us got endorsed and everybody was happy.
