May ah May, how long has it been since you last lived your life truly?
How long has it been since you last had the habit of doing physical workout frequently?
How long has it been since you last really spent time with your parents?
How long has it been since you last cooked yourself a hearty vegetarian meal with lots of vegetables, melons and potatoes?
How long has it been since you last took a long evening nap?
How long has it been since you last enjoyed a friends’ outing?
How long has it been since you last watched your favourite love drama episode?
How long has it been since you last read a good book?
How long has it been since you last blogged?
You must gain your life back, May
You are busy, I know
I know the most critical thing is your thesis
But please…please…promise yourself
Take good care of yourself
Now that you have submitted three chapters
survived your proposal defense
why don’t take a weekend off?
Take a good rest
This Friday is a public holiday
Go back home
Take a good rest, okay?
Yes, good girl…
Your boss is not the one who has raised you up into a fully-grown lady you are today
The ones who have raised you up by shedding blood and tears are your parents
Go back home and accompany them
And one more thing…
How long has it been since you last practiced your vegetarian diet?
May, you are doing a research that aims to enhance people’s awareness of veganism
and you yourself is a meat eater?
May, this cannot be…
How are you going to share your research findings if you yourself is a meat eater?
You must at least be a vegetarian, if you are not vegan
Remember how happy you were when you were a vegetarian during those three years of your university life
Where is your passion?
Where is your life purpose?
Tell yourself to get back to your vegetarian diet
If people invite you for a meal, suggest a vegetarian-friendly restaurant
There are so many vegetarian-friendly restaurants here
If you are dining with your family, spare the meat for them
Okay, off you go, May
All the best
