      At the moment my motivation is that I’m nearly at the end of my PhD project. I am really putting in the last efforts at the moment.

      Being so close to finishing is currently motivating me. Before the prospect of building a device that could one day be used to test drugs or model diseases kept me going. You need to remember the bigger picture sometimes.
      Plus not having a “proper” job is pretty fun. i can stay in bed and write if i want to
