Ah. My h-index is now 1
So, I just realized that the only publication I have, now has a citation. Which means that my h-index is now 1. Hardly a big deal, but hey, something is better than nothing. One day, I’ll look back at this day and say, ha, that’s where I started from – rock bottom.
I’m posting this for another reason too.
Every once in a while, when I’m talking to someone and the topic of running comes up, and I’ll ask them if they run, and they’ll be like.. “yeah, but only for like a mile or ten minutes. Not half-marathons like you..”
Err, I started there too, you know.
This is what I posted way back in 2009. One of my first couple of posts on running. See? 2.29 miles. No text. Just a map. What a noob. I could barely write or run. I remember it would take me 30 mins to do that much with breaks in between. And I would think that was the biggest achievement of my life at that time. Sigh.
I was terrible at writing. I started from this. Wtf is that? I don’t even know what I was thinking when I posted that.
But that’s ok. The important thing for me is to move on and grow and improve.
I had to start somewhere, and water bottle blings seemed like a good topic to start with.
And 2009 seemed like a good year to start.
The way I see it, I won’t care what I wrote about, in a month from now.
So, why wait?
P.S. : h-index in short means that anyone with an index of h has published h papers each of which has been cited in other papers at least h times.
