I am doing a new kind of data analysis today. It involves measurement from a microscopic image, taking light diffraction factor into account to identify the actual size of the targeted cell structures. It is my first time to conduct it and I am a little unsure about it. So I went to Le Supervisor office to seek for guidance. 👉👈
I briefly describe my doubt. He asked me to explain to him about the theories and background of the study. I did.
He listened carefully, got me to draw some illustrations to explain what I understand. After that, he nodded: “Great, you understand everything about it now. Now I have nothing else to teach you.” 😐 😓 😅
That was not what I expected when I came in. 😄
Getting back to my question: “But… I am not confident with this one… I measure it like this, can you verify that if I do it right? 😮”, showing him what I did.
He smiled: “Angelyn, use your force, like Yoda. 🙂 ”
I wasn’t following: “Huh????” ← serious mode: ON! 😜
“Don’t think, Angelyn. Just feel your data from the image, and measure. Use your force, like Yoda…. ;)”
LOL!!! Such a weird guidance, it doesn’t sound scientific at all!!! 😂
So I said: “Oh… abracadabra… I can feel that good result is coming, we will publish the results in Nature, win Nobel Prize and I’m gonna have long holiday after that… ✌✌✌”
He LOL: “Hahahaha, that’s way too much force you are applying! You can have long holiday any time, don’t need to wait until you get Nobel Prize… :D”
Hahaha, thank you sifu! Now the force is with me, I can proceed with the 300 sets of data and get it done in few hours time today. ← Highly holiday-induced 😎
May the force be with you too, peps! 😂
