One year has passed since my decision on December, 2014 to focus a bit more in my academic career.
In the beginning I had to review my schedule and make a difficult choice: exchanging arts for science – the piano, keyboard and singing classes were cancelled to make room for research meetings in the Lab.
Now I look back and feel that it was a decision definitely worth making. I have much more academic achievements this year than in the past five years. Moreover, there is art in science! As said in the quote by Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton featured in a chapter opening in my PhD Thesis:
“Art and science have their meeting point in method.”
For the upcoming year the goal is to keep the pace and deliver more.
This is what I wish for me, for my friends and coworkers and for the ones who helped me carry out these achievements bellow!
