Week 170: Completion of Chapter 3

I’ve completed the rewriting and editing of Chapter 3, and today I sent my supervisors revised Chapters 2, 3 and 4.

The literature review and methodology chapters are closely connected, so it was essential to validate the positioning of the theories. I have gone back and forth between Chapters 2 to 7, and the actual order I completed the writing in was Chapters 5, 6, 7, 4, 2 and 3.

I am now finalising Chapter 1, the introductory chapter.



Cooking at home

My daily routine has been pretty much the same as before coronavirus: writing, editing, cooking, cleaning, and indoor exercise. But I cook more often for joy.

Last week, I cooked five vegetables with demi-glace served with mashed potatoes; mushroom lasagne using gluten-free pasta sheets; and shrimp and egg fried rice.

I can also see the availability of online supermarket shopping is returning to normal. Even a slot for the following day is now available. I truly feel that the delivery people in my town are great, and their service quality and consideration for hygiene is increasing. I’ve come to show more appreciation to them by expressing gratitude and some more little words.
