Default Brag

Heya! Just wanted to brag a little about how my schooling is going ;-)

Well... I had to give in my last paper August 20th on reforms of the UN´s Security Council: Would it improve democracy and credibility? (question written myself on a subject chosen myself). Well, I got the result :-) 9/10. Outstanding!

That is done.

Since then, I have been attributed an advisor for the writing of my thesis. I was pretty worried when I got the news I would get a really reknown woman who´s an expert on security issues. Both professionally and academically. When I wrote a little paper last May, I was told by a classmate who reviewed part of it to not let her see this paper, as I was undermining NATO a little... BUT since I want my thesis to be based on that former paper and want to dig deeper into the subject I wanted my advisor to read that paper to understand where I was coming from and from there start focusing on where to go. So I approached her by e-mail today, and sent her as well the paper. Just to brag a little more, I am posting you what she stated about my paper:

"Dear B.,

It's good to hear from you and I'm glad we shall be working on this
interesting subject together.

[...]

I have read your paper and was impressed by it in terms of scope,
accuracy, good referencing and - not least - good English language.
Despite its shortness I also spotted some quite original elements in it.
You certainly have a great starting point here and to the extent that the
thesis also covers the NATO-Russia aspect, you will be able to re-use much
of the material with minimum updating.

[...]"

She gave me plenty of ideas. We are meeting in a week. And I just can´t wait to start!!! What a great boost guys!

If there´s anything I will never do at any time is give up or quit. Through all the turbulance of past months I have in the end always stood strong on the ground focusing on things that I could have real impact on. I am proud and that chin will definitely continue to be held up high for a little while. LOL!

Have a great evening all. I´m almost jumping out of joy over here... Just wanted to share some good energy with you all. And of course BRAG about myself ;-) (Hopefully not too many had to puke during their reading...........)

Well done B! So proud of you! What a wonderful example of not allowing someone else's ____ to mess up your future. You are an inspiration!
