Officially a Masters!

I have changed my degree program to a masters program from a PhD! I’m very happy about this. =)

Still, the advisor I picked isn’t awesome…. =/ but I’m going to stick it out. Hopefully, I’ll be done in another year…. At the rate I’m going, I’m probably going to write a thesis on stuff that didn’t work.

There’s another grad student in my lab, and she’s thinking about leaving this group after some events yesterday. If that were to happen, I’d be the only grad student for my advisor… again. Most of the students who had joined this group decided to leave. Think about that. What does that say about this group? About my advisor?

What do other students in the department say about my advisor?
“Douchebag.”
“Head in his ass.”
“Arrogant prick.”

Also, he’s new-ish, so everything I’m doing is building from the ground up. There’s nothing that’s already established, so I have to work out everything myself.

Let the rest of my graduate studies begin!

Cold!

You know when you have a cold and you’re all sleepy? Happened to me yesterday. I went to work at the usual, and then left after about two hours. Hung around my house for a little bit and then went to sleep after lunch. Woke up for dinner, and then went back to sleep around 7:30.

Also, when you’re sick you get this feeling that your breath always smells bad…. gah….

I’ve been blowing my nose so much, it’s super red and chapped. =/

In case you’re all sick of the red, here are my new nails.

It’s my favorite, Gunmetal, with a gold glitter top coat. =)

Missed a day…

I know, I know. Missed a day. =( But I’m going to keep trying!

Yesterday, I wasn’t feeling well, and my boyfriend is angry at me again. In fact, we might have broken up. I have no idea, because he’s just been ignoring me when I try to talk to him. 

Yes, I know he’s a bad influence, but it still hurts when you have to let someone go. It wasn’t a very good weekend.

Also, I have caught a cold.

Parents

The parents are visiting. It’s crazy. It’s annoying, because I just want to do the things to want to do (aka work in the lab, make cookies, and sleep) on the weekend, but now I have to entertain them. The more annoying part is that they never can tell me the exact time they are going to be arriving- and only if the weather is good, they’ll visit. This way, I can’t plan for them.

If I plan for them to be here, then I’ll spend most of the day just waiting.

If I plan for them to not be here, then if they do arrive I might be busy doing something else and can’t work around them.

It’s not like lab work is sitting in front of a spreadsheet. I can’t just save the document, and do something else. If I am in the middle of an experiment, then I’m in the middle. There is no pause button!

They were suppose to visit last weekend, but it was raining too hard. The part that made me pretty angry was when weather.com said it was going to stop raining for about an hour. Due to this, my parents could not tell me if they would come until noon that day. So, I’m in lab, doing some experiments, not sure if I can continue to the next time (it’s a time based experimental process), because I didn’t know if they would come around. I keep asking them to be more specific, but they just can’t do it. It drives me crazy!!

Sweatpants day

I kinda want it to be a mostly sweatpants day. I woke up this morning, and thought instantly, “It’s definitely a sweatpants day.” I didn’t want to do anything super intense. However, I do want to go out….

Sometimes I don’t just want to sit around, but I just want to wear sweatpants. Usually, most people would say something like, “Just go out in your sweatpants.” I am not this type of person. I feel really strange when I go out with sweatpants. The only time that sweatpants are acceptable are when I’m working out. Otherwise, why should I wear sweatpants in public, right? I’m sure I’ve angered many people who wear sweatpants on a daily basis, and I’m sorry. Let’s make it clear. I don’t mind when other people wear sweatpants in public. I just don’t like to do it, because I feel uncomfortable doing so.

Today feels like a good say to just veg out and watch movies. I’ve already caught up on Bones and Psych! Next up is Family Guy and I don’t know if there’s really anything else…. Has White Collar started yet? Covert Affairs? I need to find some good shows. I’ve been so busy lately, I haven’t really had time to do anything. I’ve missed you so much, Hulu! I’m glad you’re around. I don’t mind the ads. I mean, they aren’t as long as commercials on TV. If they were, I’d be a little upset about that.

I’ve been upset lately. I think I really needed a good day like this. No pressure, really, just a little time to myself. =)

Now, time to do a lot of fun stuff (i.e. grading, writing, homework)! Ha ha ha, I think I’ll also give me some beauty pampering too. I like being a girl sometimes.

Such a great day!… but why?

I’m not really sure why, but I’m really happy this week.

Despite my two exams this week and lots of work to do, I’m super pleased.

Everything just looks extra nice and I’m really not minding the annoying things either. Usually something like having some extra work would annoy me, but it doesn’t really matter this time. It’s such a great week!

I don’t really know why. I have so much work to do, but I’m just really happy. Weird… my mood is usually a bit foul, but not this week!

I’m not even panicking as much as I would. Well, that may be a lie. I’m still panicking, but I’m so happy while I do so! (laugh) I don’t really know what’s going on with me, right now. Let’s see how this plays out the rest of week. =D

We’re gonna run like this

So, I finally got that annoying presentation over with. It took a long time! It was suppose to be a 30 minutes, but I only talked for 15.

Anyway, working on that presentation really set me back. Now, it’s like full power mode. You know what would be really good right now? Caffeine!! Ah…

I hate the taste of coffee, but it’s really good for times like this. I either drink it black or with 2 cremes and 2 sugars.

It probably wakes me up, because it just tastes so bad. The shock gives a nice jolt.

You know what else works? Lots of sugar! I’ve already eaten some good sweets this morning. Hee hee… let’s do this.

Ready? Go!

Scars

It’s been how long since I moved out of flea house? Right, almost 2 months.

Sadly, I still have marks from those annoying little flea bites. They don’t itch anymore; they’re just spots all over my feet and legs were the bites were.

I already have enough scars! I don’t want more… gah. They’re probably never going to go away.

Whatever, let’s see what happens to them in another two months. December. By then I’m hoping they fade just enough so there’s nothing too noticeable there. I’m just sick of having my scars.
