I'm doing the same thing as the last summer: writing my paper, what'more, it's the same paper!


Having been blamed for why can't finish it over a year,  now I'm very peaceful.

Not everyone has a chance to do the same thing again, especially after so many failures.

Slow down, do it again ... even though after 12 months.


My paper is a data-driven method to analysis mobility inequality.

The code in python and visualization in R was accomplished a year ago, ironically, all the results are ridiculous when I look back again. 

It seems like I'm watching my 'last-summer' self, who was importing papers and codes,  exporting tons of "trash".


Too soon old, too late smart.

The past year, I have been suffering to correct my bad habits in learning, because I don't want to be ashamed when feeling "lucky" to graduate.

So many graduates are talking about "lucky" instead of "the way of learning" as a success.

I have to save myself from that trap.


If I said not regret the wasted time, that' not true.

When I'm debugging last-year codes, reading last-year papers, editing last-year drafts, regrets like the ocean almost swallow me.

"Why it has cost me 12 months to know the right thing? Why? Why? ..."

Then I have to relief myself, "People who tend to win early don’t learn the right lessons." (Naval)
