Last Friday, before I left for my trip, I turned in my dissertation for formatting review. It was not actually complete. Chapter 3 was a farce, but my boss said that they will not care. Yesterday, I got an email saying that the review is done and I need to schedule my actually dissertation (it will be the week of Dec11-15 but I have not picked an actual day yet).
December 11 is ONE MONTH FROM TODAY. (°ロ°);;;;
My December paycheck will be my final one (I think that will be the one that posts Dec 1, not Dec 31), and this means my final day of lab will be December 31. Because I am not going in to lab if I am not getting paid. If my boss wants to work something out for me to come do dishes or run the lab (both of which are unlikely cause I know what his funding situation is…), I will stick around. But instead, it looks like I have 50 days to get my lab stuff together, desk cleaned out and to find a new job.
(¬‿¬ );; Well, I guess any hopes I had of buying lucky packs or Fairy Rose Princess anytime soon are put to rest. At least none of the Fairy Rose Princess JSKs sold out on AP USA. None of the OPs either. Bless me for liking such an unpopular print!
If I get a good enough job before it goes on sale, I’ll get ivory AND wine JSKs. Haha. So that gives me a month cause the Winter Sale is usually in January.
Something else I wanted to talk about was that since the Halloween Tea, and even a little before that, I feel like my participation in lolita is waning a little. Maybe I feel that way because I have not bought anything lately, or because there have been several events that I ended up not going to. This time last year, I was doing my ‘wear 1 dress per week’ project and that really helped me feel good. Maybe I should try to do something like that again, however I am going to be under a TON of stress for the next month.
Next weekend- need to see my cute boyfriend. Weekend after is Thanksgiving. Weekend after that is Winter ILD, so I guess I will have to dress up. Weekend after that is the weekend before I defend.
Maybe I need to go easier on myself. This is a hobby. Hobbies are supposed to be fun, and I can resume it once I graduate.
