Nothing. Which is what I’ve been up to tonight, mainly because the weather outside tells me I should stay inside, and I would have been productive(like watching pointless videos online and figuring out some course stuff for next term and next year and just surfing the net about life) buuuuttt it took forever to update my computer. I have a surplus of excitement over the fact that I just changed the colour of my highlight on my computer to turquoise from the green that it used to be… Anyway, while I was waiting for my computer to update itself, I made some paper snowflakes, it’s therapeutic I tell you!
Happy halfway through November! I am officially done with midterms and labs and whatever other “major” things I had to do for my courses. It’s been a trek of an academic journey this term, I can’t remember the last time I was midterm-free. It’s like a huge weight has been taken off of my shoulders and I now have time to actually take care of the other things I’ve been meaning to do (ie., relax a little more than usual, not be frantically frenzied 24/7, learn about the wooorlldd, and oh yeah, trying to find some sort of a job for this coming summer). I’ve been thinking about research quite a bit lately(I would have laughed at the idea of me doing research if you had asked me this 6 months ago – although I don’t want a career doing research, because that’s just not me), but I haven’t fully been able to focus on it to foster a specific idea as to what I’d be interested IN researching(although I do have a VAGUE idea of the general field that I’m interested in). Over the past two months I have learned a great deal about myself, and my abilities and this has really helped me to figure out what I truly want to do. The general theme of what I’ve wanted to do has been the same for years and years, but it’s been as of recent that I’ve been able to shape the specifics. It’s like all the small pieces are coming together and slowly forming a larger picture, which is absolutely excellent. FACT: blasting One Direction while studying to block out all the background noise from people and whatever else is annoying, absolutely BRILLIANT #noshame #theymotivateme
