i wanted to sleep on. sleep is just sooooooooooo good.

my mind was busy arguing --- should sleep more after staying up late packing, should sleep more and just do the thesis during the weekends, should sleep more because it's good for your health. and then came the ultimate counter-argument: WHAT IF TODAY YOU BREAK THROUGH? what if, you wake up, hard as it is and end up happy because YOU HAD A BREAKTHROUGH?

so at 406m, the body got out from bed, did the morning rituals and worked on the hardy Acer from 449 to 545am today.

and i did have a BREAKTHROUGH.

integrated 3 long chapters into one. from about 36000 words, the hybrid Chapter 5 is now 12000+, ready for editing. oh, this feels really good.

I'll push for Breakthroughs every day, from now on.
