I handed in my last assignment of the semester last Friday. To say that I hit the submit button with relief, is an understatement. I was so glad that my first semester was over for the year. I just have to rinse & repeat in August.
I’ve got a few things planned over the semester break, one of which includes a bit of a spring cleaning of my room. I’m a bit over living from the floordrobe & want to fully utilise my wardrobe since I practically live from my room & every inch of space is very much valued. I’ve also got some blog posts planned, some other study to do (you didn’t think I’d while my time away, did you?) & some reading time.
Also, some focussed job applications to complete. I’m making it my goal for the rest of the year to get a full time permanent job & am sending this out to the universe. Please & thank you.
I’ll be glad when I finish up my Masters & hopefully not do my phd unless I decide that I’m really bored & want to switch things up again. 2.5 years of study this time round has really eaten me up. I want to just be able to do other things, not just be tied down by study deadlines.
Best be on my merry way back to work now! I’ve got a bit of brain drain happening at the moment staring at spreadsheets & doing mindless tasks. But it pays the bills.
Just a quick post to say that I am indeed alive after quite a bit of gap, I’ve been busy with uni, work & life in general. I’ve got the day off work today to complete my uni assignment & thus signals the end of the first semester. I’ve got a few things lined up for the semester break & I’m hoping that I can get to them in that short space of time.
One of the more exciting things I did recently was get me a Kindle. I’ve always had my doubts about the viability of the Kindle & the price of books versus being able to borrow free books from the library on my Tab etc, I was sold when my colleagues talked about almost 1900 free books that she had on a thumb drive. Dick Smith was having a sale on the 3G version, so I hopped, skipped & ran to Dick Smith the next day I got my grubby hands on the Kindle Paperwhite. I’ll have to write up a review about it soon, but in short, I’m absolutely loving it!
I had won a signed copy of Rachel Khoo’s Kitchen Notebook a few weeks back & it finally arrived in the mail yesterday! The pictures inside were filled with colour & the recipes were definitely not ones that I’ve ever seen before. I’m really chuffed with the whole thing! Will be fun to try some of the recipes in there some day!
I guess that’s it from me for a while. I’ve got a 50% assignment to finish up today & then I can commiserate by not looking at uni work for the next 2 months or so! Have a lovely Friday!
