This is it. As of 1 hour ago, I’ve missed my “end of August” deadline for my PhD proposal submission to my mentors. I will be writing to them personally to inform them (probably on Monday), but this is just to put a shout-out on my progress (or lack of it).

I have been finding many different ideas, but my problem is that I’m not able to settle on one idea for too long. I’m getting distracted by many threads in my paper… and I can only take solace with the fact that it is better to be unclear in the beginning than at the end.

Anyway… I think my revised deadline will be sometime by September 10. But let’s see how that goes.
