Weird Dog

I have 2 dogs. One is a beagle. I actually have to order the beagle to stop drinking. She has this weird habit where she sculls the water. And then throws up. No idea why. She has access to the water 24/7. When the beagle isn’t drinking stupidly, she’s licking. Doesn’t matter what I’m doing,…

Overactive Imagination

I’ve always been told that I have an overactive imagination. Generally it’s a great thing. It helps with writing stories, stopping boredom and just generally keeping me happy and entertained. That was until my partner started working away. Now I’m alone for a week at a time. And mostly it’s fine. I get more done.…

This week I got a fitbit. Not because I’m a fitness freak, but more so because I’m almost the exact opposite. I get down the rabbit hole of study and forget everything else. To eat. To drink. To walk around. Hence the fitbit. If I haven’t walked around in the last hour, it buzzes at…

PhD Time!!!

On Friday I FINALLY got my enrollment / candidature confirmation. I got the scholarship (money) confirmation a few weeks ago. But, the enrollment got held up... because my supervisor had too many students. And we had to get an exemption... and, needless to say, I have been incredibly stressed over the past two weeks. After all, I start on Tuesday. So I kind of need to be enrolled to actually be able to start on time...

Getting Older

It was my birthday on Friday. I turned 25. And, the older I get, the less excited I get about birthdays. Don't get me wrong, I still force people to come out and celebrate with me.... but really, it is just an excuse to go out drinking and have fun for a night. What really got me this year is how nostalgic it all has made me. I don't tend to get nostalgic on my birthdays... mostly I just want a good time with good people.
