No matter how much you work, you will find free time Hi I’m your mom’s great uncle’s wife’s grandmas’s we’re related shirt. No, that is not a very good thing here. You need to find a hobby. Research life is full of ups and downs. Play, sing, join a club, go trekking, or find some way to keep yourself interested. It is impossible to list here without having a life outside the lab. The sooner you realize it, the better. This answer is in no way meant as a discouragement towards pursuing a Ph.D. degree. The pros undoubtedly outnumber the cons (being a Ph.D. student myself, I can vouch for that); the answer is just addressing what was asked in the question. A lot of time passed since ancient times, and wars now are not about individual heroes, but about good weaponry, armament, equipment, morale, determination, training. Givi is a known person but he never was a person who decides and determines the outcome. Aleksey Mozgovoy was killed in 2015, but that hadn’t return city Debaltsevo under the control of the Ukrainian army, and his unit still operates. The current Ukrainian regime is eager to deal with any opposition and those who helped separatists, Ukrainian government supporters openly talk about “filtration camps” and “cleansing”. In the case of Donbas surrender Russia probably could get even more thousands of refugees. So I don’t expect anything changes too much until all sides are led by who they are. Ukrainian regime thinks that this is a “holy war” which they cannot abandon, also they do not want to accept parting with Crimea. Russia thinks that they finally returned Crimea where it belongs and can’t be really hoping to make long-standing peace with the crazy Ukrainian regime.
