Which way is easier for you?
Truthfully, I think segmenting chapters would make it easier for me (and the majority of feedback is totally fine with that).
Having only 3-4 pages looming over my head is less discouraging that having 12-16 pages looming. When doing full chapters it’s easy to go “eh, I won’t make a dent today anyway”, whereas it might (hopefully!) be easier to motivate myself with smaller segments. Before my exams it was hard to find the time and motivation to get any work done at all, so I think that for the sake of keeping it up when the next semester starts, segmenting is the way to go.
It also means I can get a continuation of chapter 9’s cliffhanger out sooner ;D
Chapter 9 is coming along nicely, and I am still rather confident I’ll be able to finish it this week. If I finish it before the weekend is over, I’ll be scheduling it for a Monday release and start working on the next chapter immediately. I’m staying positive about it!

I never made any follow-up posts about my exams, but it’s partially because the discrete math tests took a while to get graded, and I wanted to know all the results before celebrating, hehe.
My hard work thankfully did pay off, as I aced all four of my exams! It feels so great to have lived up to my own expectations, and I can’t help feeling a bit proud of myself ^^
Also, the company we did our semester projects for might hire me! They really liked the solution I was responsible for, so I had a meeting with them last week - they talked about a lot of different challenges and optimization problems they had yet to solve and hinted that I could get a position and solve some of them. Nothing is certain yet, but I’ll be damned if it doesn’t feel amazing to get this kind of recognition already.
Basically, I am in a great mood lately, because the work I put into my semester project and my exams has really been rewarded, and things are looking very bright for me.
And with exams well over, I can finally properly relax (i.e. work hard on Treehouse, haha).
