This was probably my best month this year because I had my first ever conference/ mini holiday.
But it didn't start off that great, I had to learn how to use a software called Stata for statistical analysis.
I struggled a lot in the beginning because I had no idea how to set up the data or what code to use. (Stata has a command interface). It took me a really long time to figure out what I needed to do. I went through a long process of trial and error and seeking help when I got stuck.
The first part of the analysis didn't take as long but the rest of it took me longer than I expected. I had set myself a deadline to finish it before I leave for the conference (but failed). However, the good news is, it finally worked in the end! I felt super accomplished after getting all my outputs. I think I'm slowly learning to be persistent!
I thought I would be ready to write up after this but turns out, I still have to do another quality and tool validity assessment. But almost there!
Overall, the conference was definitely my highlight and like I said, that one piece of paper made my month. It's a nice feeling to be getting recognition for your work :)
