The short-term goals are to write my thesis and defend it, while at the same time getting accepted into a good math PhD program.
The long-term goals are to get a mortgage for a decent apartment unit, to get a degree in math and to get a decent income; the TA salary doesn't exactly leave a lot of room for wiggling around.
Also to find a partner, if possible.
I also want to practice my idea of social freedom, where I act according to my personality, rather than according to social norms. So far I'm gaining courage to start doing scary exercises such as singing out loud or dancing in public, approaching people and asking them if they would marry me and so on, to completely desensitise myself to societal rejection. Might do a vblog on that to gain more motivation!
There is a lion inside me wanting out, but decades of social conditioning built a cage around it. Time to break the cage and set the beast loose!
