Hello! I won't pretend this is super exciting news to anyone, but I think I'll most likely be blocking these last few weeks out of my memory at the end of April so it will be nice to have a record to look back on to see where the time went! haha.. So without further ado: I have an essay due in 5 days, my dissertation due in 11, and another essay due 13 days after that. The library is my primary residence. My bank balance is dangerously low. It has been blindingly cold, windy and snowy for the last week. Aaaaand I have tonsillitis. (Although it's getting better.)
BUT! It's not all grim, as you can see I am enjoying some chicken noodle soup which my sister sent to me in an adorable get-well-soon care package that also included a cute mug, some tea, some candy, a craft notebook, and more. She is quite literally the best sister (/person) in the world. :)
AND this is the bowl I painted last week at a friend's society fundraiser. I literally came home from painting it and 45 minutes later my matching mug broke. :( :( :( If I were one to believe in signs [and of course I totally am] I would think the universe is trying to tell me something. But what?
So there you have it. Things like socializing, eating healthy, personal hygiene, and otherwise enjoying life are, unfortunately, luxuries that I cannot afford at this time. But soon enough I'll be free. And, being ever the optimist, I truly believe that in the nearish future I will be able to enjoy a 10 minute walk outside without getting snow down my back. So there's always that to look forward to.
