Thesis

Hey guys,

I know this is not at the same level of most of the stuff posted here, but I would love to get some prayer support on my decision in regards to Masters Thesis.

I just found out I need to decide, before next Friday, what I will work on for my thesis. This came as a surprise to me, because I haven't given it much thought. The Danish government has made these new rules, that I have to start my thesis the day after my last exam (19th of December in my case, which makes no sense, because all university staff are on christmas break there).

I have 2 options:
1. Project on Biometrics/Heart Rate Variability:
Pros:
- It's in the same department as my study line
- The supervisor is a super cool guy that I have worked with many times before. Christian guy, a pleasure to work with.
- I've heard conflicting reports of a possibility of a PhD after that (not even sure if I have the grades for that, so not that important of a point).
- I am currently working on an HRV project for that same department, so I would just have to continue my work.
Cons:
- Supervisor will most likely be very busy next year.

2. Project in trash collection optimization:
Pros:
- I am currently spending all my free time on turning this idea into a startup, so I have a headstart
- Working on this full time for half a year would improve our chances of getting funding/traction
- I would become an expert in a field where we are attempting to start a company
- (not sure if this one is a pro) The supervisor said that he doesn't want a report from me (the famous long thesis report), but instead would want me to publish two scientific articles in a journal. Apparently no one reads the reports, but the articles would be read by many people.
Cons:
- The supervisor is in another department

I am currently asking everyone around me for advice (feel free to give yours), but the most important thing to me is to get the opinion from Above

This is after all 1/4 of my masters and as my study coordinator was so nice to point out: "Will affect where you will work" (not sure if that is true).

So a short prayer would be appreciated. That God may show me what is best for me, but most importantly can help me carry out his plan for my life.

tl;dr: Pray for my choice of thesis project

I will pray for you. My advice, since you asked, is to go with the one that you think will keep your interest the longest! Best of luck to you.

I got a word from God this morning: "What are you afraid of?"

I have asked all I know to pray for me to make the best decision. I will spare you the details of all the thoughts going through my head. I have until Wednesday to make a decision.

Didn't mention it, but have been keeping your situation in my thoughts and prayers
