hey. so i’m officially going to defend in january. my boss hasn’t even looked at any of my drafts (im 3/4 done writing). good news. i’ve got a big departmental seminar tomorrow morning though. should be fine though. i’ve worked through it all day, and practiced twice (wtf?) with the boss. fwew! more good news; i’m officially done experiments! (officially!). after tomorrow i should be able to stop working 14-hours days. yup, back to the ol’ 12 hours a day, 7 days a week! mm-mmm! i’m planning on being done by the 21 or so, so i can enjoy the holidays (and go shopping! yikes!!).
also, today i went for an eye exam. turns out i have astigmatism; basically my eye is shaped like an american football instead of a football that isn’t used by a bunch of ‘roided-out homophobes. but not only that! oh no. it isn’t any old astigmatism! it’s a WICKED astigmatism (what my creepy, hippie eye guy, told me). APPARENTLY, it’s so bad (like -375/-450, if that means anything to you) that when i start using the glasses i had to buy, i may be overwhelmed by the amount of detail i’ll see! like, i’ll get headaches n’ shit!
it’s like i’ve lived 24 years of a lie!
or the matrix!
