Sorry for the delayed update and lack of initial responses. Everyone was so kind and helpful! Bragging time ahead ☺️.
I have a major presentation tomorrow. It’s sort of the culmination of two years. My first draft was awful. My advisor seems really (really) happy with my current one. My boyfriend helped me make my slides look super good (with subtley time period appropriate typeface)! But. Oh my god I’m so nervous I’m already shaking.
Thank you to all of you who shared support/advice in my last post. Life tends to pack multiple punches in a row, and I’m now headed home for my grandfathers funeral. It’s a long day of traveling ahead* and I need distractions. What light books have you enjoyed recently?
Hi guys! I’ve been a bit in the shadows recently. Turns out there’s some mental health stuff going on, so I wanted to talk about that but also open up the space for anyone else who needs it!
Today is one of the busiest days of the year for me. After finishing grading, I was writing for a final presentation for class this morning, went in to my job to give a different public presentation for an hour and a half, I’m now editing my class powerpoint and reviewing the research, I have my end of year review for…
The holidays are coming up, and we’ve discussed recipes - but what’s your favorite cookware or dishware? Do you have pretty Le Creuset (/knock-off brands) that you cook and serve in, transfer to crystal bowls, grab whatever’s available? Breakout the fancy china you inherited from your grandmother, have understatedly…
It’s been a moment since I celebrated the autumn equinox. But it’s a Friday, which makes it easier, and there’s a turning and re-balancing in my life that feels correct for this holiday. (I know some people celebrate on the 22nd, I’ve always celebrated on the 21st for both equinoxes, because then my birthday falls on…
Hey guys! I’m going up to NYC towards the end of May for three days to see some friends and visit the city. They have food covered, so what are your non-food and non-bar related recommendations? (Pet peeve, I get frustrated when all travel advice centers around eating and drinking - that’s a significant part, but…
Ok this is a little confusingly vague to keep from being doxxy, but here goes! I started talking to someone new, whom I met in real life and with whom things very slowly developed, but there’s a age difference (noted at the end) that gives me some pause.
1. My hair appointment went super well, I now have buttery platinum, almost-white hair with only one round of bleach and a blunt, slightly choppy lob!
I’m finally taking the plunge, and after growing out my un-dyed hair a bunch, I’m gonna try and go queer girl blonde. Like white blonde. Eek!
Last night’s OT with the short program was so much fun - here’s the sequel for the ice dancing finale! Who will win - the hottt sexxxxaaay Moir/Virtue? The jubilantly smiling Shibutanis? The French, with a comeback from last night’s wardrobe malfunction? THE SUSPENSE!
Who’s ready for the short program? I AM! Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue make me unreasonably excited to be in Canada and have a bona fide reason to cheer for the Canadian contingent. I do wish I had more talkative commenters, I’d love to hear what Weir has to say :/
1. The luge! One of the few sports I see and desperately want to go try myself. It just looks so fun, like an amusement park ride! Why don’t the summer olympics have water slide races? When distances between competitors are almost always hundredths or even thousandths of a second, it’s hard for me to understand how…
And it was good!! It feels really nice to be having fun dating again after breaking up with my longer term, long distance boyfriend back in December.
Sorry for making a whole post just to ask this one question, but: I have a new dress (and a duplicate in a different pattern) that I bought on sale from Urban Outfitters. I know, I know, but it fits super well and is so comfortable! However, after wearing it all day the front is like an accordion of (larger?)…
My breasts are swollen and my nipples are tender. I know for a fact I’m not pregnant. So. Why?? How?!? This has never happened before and it’s uncomfortable and confusing!
I’m actually doing some of the things! Feel free to talk about your own small success here too :).
If you think something is wrong, it probably is! It might even be a ruptured ovarian cyst and no you’re not being dramatic and you might need heavy duty painkillers and IV fluids!
Help me learn to knit GT! I’ve decided I need a productive but calming hobby, something I can do with my hands besides checking my phone while watching movies or while hanging out in a cafe. And knitting seems like this secret sisterhood, and I love pretty colors, so let’s try it out!
