I recently came to notice that my last journal entry was over 4 months ago! It was about Halloween and Christmas, and let's face it; it's been Easter already >.< So, time for an update.
It's been quiet for quite a while, I know. I've been busy with my thesis, the last step I have to take in order to get my masters degree. It's going well enough (though that entirely depends on what minute of the day you ask me, this right now being a good minute) and I hope to turn it in the beginning of june. After that it's waiting for the people who get paid to do that to read it and tell me I'm awesome, or how to make my thesis more awesome, and then I can go and get that silly paper saying I'm smart somewhere in the second half of august. That is the planning at least.
Anyway; this all means that I haven't been baking, like, at all, which I find weird as baking and cooking have always been soothing to me unless stuff went horribly wrong. And what could go wrong with simple cupcakes? But I'm big enough of a neurotic knit-wit to be afraid that the time spent in the kitchen will cost me as it's really time I had to be spending behind piles and piles of paper and a computer screen. Having said that; I'm squeezing out sweaters, vests, baskets, flowers, eggs, bunnies, skirts, cowls and what not's as I can't just sit and watch a show in my breaks; I have to give my hands something to do while doing absolutely nothing. Hence the knitting and crocheting.
Aside from the immense amount of yarn I'm rushing through (though like books; I buy it quicker than I can use it), I've also run trough 1,5 laser printer ink-cartridge, over 1500 of sheets of paper, and I want to point out that when I copy or print something I need to read and defile with my marker, I print it double sided, with two pages per side... The rainforest must hate me by now.
And I'm going to make it hate me some more, as I'm adding some info to chapter three, and I won't read all the articles I need from my screen. So off to the printer again it is!
