Out of Sorts

Walking the Halls


Have been feeling a little out of sorts this weekend. Nothing specific, just a little off.
I don't know what it is. Just a little ooggy and unmotivated. I think a part of it is that everything is changing. A big thing is not going home this Christmas, having to come up with my own Christmas traditions. I want to decorate, but it is too early. I think I will feel better once I can do that. :s

I didn't get a second interview with the company I wanted to work for, which whilst not unexpected, still sucks. I lack the experience necessary for the job apparently. Oh well.

What else? I don't know.

Re-reading my dissertation, looking for ideas to expand upon.
Watching NCIS.
Waiting for it to snow and settle.
Waiting for the radiator to get fixed.
Trying to make the Sims work again.

Apparently I am waiting a lot.

Can it be December 1st yet?

Graduation Day Part 2

So yesterday I finally graduated from my masters. It was an oddly subdued ceremony but nice to receive my certificate in person! Went to a drinks reception and was pretty much told I have to do my our next year. A big part of me wants to but 4 years from now are my employment prospects going to be better for it? Is it worth the cost? Will I enjoy it? I love to research so in that regard, sure I will. But is it going to make me curl up in a worked out ball because on top of it, I would have to keep working... So yeah, something I need to think on as financially it would be a huge challenge. I need to work out if I can pull it off and then figure out what I would even write it on...

So mostly I am happy ny professor thinks me capable, but I have the most ridiculously high capacity to doubt myself. We will see. It can't hurt to apply and see where it goes from there.

I am now home for the weekend. Off to see my grandparents today and then Harry Potter tomorrow. (opening weekend and all), back home either Sunday night or Monday morning so I can head back to work.

What else? Oh yeah, for graduation I got a sewing machine so I get to spend some time trying to figure out how to make it work. Ideas for a first project? I'm thinking some kind of basic quilt...

Polka Power

Bench Monday

What is it about polka dots? I love them! Colour and size doesn't matter, just as long as it is dotty it is awesome. I brought this dress for graduation. I like it. I will get some thick tights and a cardie to go with it and I should be warm enough. It makes me feel very retro.

So this is really a post about nothing, as I am not sure what I want to think about tonight.

Maybe the fact that I applied for a job I really want and have no chance at getting?
The fact that I cleaned out the conservatory and made it a little (freezing cold) crafting space. Now just to come up with something to actually do in there!
The fact that my toes are cold right now even though they are under several layers?
The fact that pretty much all of my Christmas pressies are brought and wrapped already?
The fact that I brought myself a copy of scrabble whilst simultaneously loosing my locker key in 'Toys 'R' Us'?
The fact that firework night was awesome?

Really, truly, I wish to discuss none of these things! I have actually had, in what I thought was a not so busy week, a lot of things I could post about. Maybe I will come back to some of these things soon, especially the motivation behind scrabble, or the drastic change in weather these last few days. For now, I'm off to snuggle further under the duvet and read a book. I may even go get a hot water bottle for my toes!

Night all.

Missing Updates

Bench Monday: 1st November


So, over the past week and a half, I have completely failed to update this blog. To be fair, not much has been happening. We have made food, good food. I have taken photos. Halloween came and went. Christmas shopping has commenced and almost finished. The pumpkin has gone moldy and in the bin. Christmas music has begun at work. Hand warmers have come out. Life is moving forwards. Graduation is fast approaching. Cookies are baking.

Life is content.
