0x03 Notes

 

I will include notes for the year review in this section, just record some fantastic moments or memories.

 

  1. I graduated from Syracuse University May 2017 with the degree of master in science in computer science. The cumulative GPA for my master's study is 3.84. Congratulations to me! I am so lucky to have the fantastic 2 years at Syracuse, even though 6 months with snows. I also thank professor Sucheta Soundarajan sincerely, thanks for support me as research assistant, I am glad to be your student and conducting funny research with you. Anyway, love SU, love Syracuse, love the 2 years, I will always be with SU and go for it Orange!

     

  2. I made a huge decision to defer my PhD life for one year, since I decided to join a startup company  and fight for myself. No matter what the company will be in the future, I don't care, since it's excited to do so. I love challenges and I love risks, so just brace the unusual life. 

     

  3. I also made a big decision at the end of 2017, which is change my future PhD from Computer Science to Biomedical Informatics . That means I can not transfer credits to the future PhD(or MD) program, and I need to take more time study medicine and biology related courses. That's so excited for me even if I need to spend more years, worth it.

 

2017 is passing right now, really excited year. I can feel that I am no longer a boy since I made huge decisions which highly related to my current life and careers by myself. I still insists to pursue a challenging life which as I thought pretty excited. Hope year 2018 even better!
