here are his warm words when i was in the hell:
"so you would like to do something conceptual rite? but do you think you can handle such a big thing? will it be too hard?" "errrrrrrrr~ i think it will be fine," said i. "then that's ok. come to me whenever you like. i am just afraid you'll have too much workload."
"dun care if it is very different from the others'. as long as you like it, it will be fine."
"it doesn't matter whether she (judith, my second advisor) likes it or not. the most important thing is you like it." --> this sentence was soooooooo encouraging as i told him judith disliked my topic....
"only if you like the topic can you make a good one."
"you will make it. i have trust in you. you'll be fine."
finally, although i couldnt meet the target he set for me during the beginning of the semester (he wanted me to get a first class honours and asked me to try my best.......) i am really delighted to have tim as my advisor. he is such a lovable professor.
honesty is the best policy!!!!!!!!!!!!
