Teng on July 7, 2019

I recently learned that other PhD students experienced mid-PhD crisis as well [link]. To cope with it, some recommend to start small projects to nurture a sense of accomplishment and to see things get finished. Those small projects could be baking a cake and taking a painting class [link]. I started something similar in the end of 2017 when I was in the first semester of my third year. Other than the joy from reading and learning, compiling a list relieves some level of anxiety too.
