The year of 2008 is about to end in about a month’s time. Throughout this whole year many things have happened. Some of them are positive while others were painful. Nonetheless I believe that 2008 has been fruitful and that I have made good use of the time. My academic route was quite smooth, meeting just a few bumps and troubles along the way. Still, I managed to pull through with a rather average result. What I worry most is that some of the fundamentals of mathematics aren’t grasp to my fullest of ability and that the advanced techniques next year are going to prove a problem. However, I’ll most probably be getting extra help from tuition lessons etc so I doubt that it would be much of a problem.
