Finally, after revisited the thesis statement several times, it’s time to circulate my draft among the co-authors. The process I have been through this month just revealed that I need my English writing skill improved badly. When I read the stuff I just wrote, which turned out to be really hard to understand, I was unable to find a clear logic behind those phrases. Unfortunately, that is the essential part of writing a scientific paper. Thus I realize I really need to take some time and be serious about my English. Through reading some British or American masterpieces and English news, also learning the new words, I should improve my English. Besides logic, I find myself often use some useless phrases whose meaning has already be presented before. In one word, I need to simplify my sentences.
Last Sunday, I just finished the PhD qualifying exam for PMO. The exam about galaxy is really hard for me, for I have forgotten a lot. However, I think the ISM and English part is not too bad. That means I need to take out some time carefully reading those textbooks, for they the foundation of the building of knowledge.
In about 2 months, I will graduate as a master in Astrophysics. Good luck to myself.
