I gots me a haircut.




It's been... a quiet whirlwind, is what I'll call it. Still waiting on papers from the Bureau of Immigration, hopefully it makes it in time for my Japan trip. We got good discount deals on the plane tickets, so... fingers crossed.

I've come to accept that I won't be able to push myself so hard that I'll graduate this semester. But I'm going to at least work hard to get my revisions done so I can make it to proposal defense.

I feel like I had more to say but apart from trying to keep my house from falling apart (pest control! keeping the kitchen sink clear and clean! chores! errands! budgeting!), that's about it.

*hugs, thanks* I like one step at a time also.

Not doing the optional things recommended by clueless people (like trying to do everything at once instead of in order) that result in worse anxiety etc is a very good plan, too.

You are awesome. *crosses fingers also*

The cut looks great! You look great! ♥

Fingers crossed for timely paperwork. Could the plane tickets be rescheduled, if necessary?

Sorry you won't be able to graduate but it's good that you are not risking burning yourself out. *hugs*

I feel you with the never-ending list of tasks. Hang in there.

That sounds awesome! We went to Japan, way back in high school, and it was an awesome time. I hope you have an awesome time too! (And if you have some money to burn, I totally recommend hitting an onsen at some point. That was possibly the most amazing bath I've ever had in my LIFE.)
