You know, sometimes I forget this thing even exists. Rather sad, innit?
So, what’s been going on in my world lately? I rocked another 4.0 last semester, and this semester is shaping up to be pretty awesome as well. I’ve been shaping up some ideas for my senior research project, and getting rather involved in the Psych department. So much so that I was freshly elected president of the Psych Club… which I think is a somewhat odd thing to happen in the middle of the academic year. It’ll look nice on grad school applications, innit?
In the work sphere, I landed a seasonal job at one of my most favourite stores on the planet, fully expecting to get drop-kicked when the holiday shopping season was over. But somehow, I managed to stay on. The hours are extremely slim now, and I’ll probably have to pick up a second job over the summer, but I’m just happy to be there.
Things in the family sphere got pretty hectic back in August, and that has partially settled down in the past month… but I still worry about my mom’s health. She has been pushing herself way too hard, trying to keep everyone and everything together – to the point of her going to the ER because her back is playing tricks again. It gets on my nerves that I’m not close enough to really help her and Dad out more… all I really do is offer phone-support. And phone support isn’t much of a help if she slips and falls on her ass when nobody else is home. Yeah. I get to sit here being worried, while nobody else seems to notice or care just how seriously bad her physiological state really is.
So hell, let’s not dwell on that unhappiness. With the new semester came a new chunk of financial aid… and I splurged a wee bit and went makeup crazy. I have an Urban Decay and Sugarpill palette coming in, some MAC lipglasses, a blusher from TheBalm, and a 15-slot MAC palette for which to insert depots. Yep, I’m depotting my MAC eyeshadows. Never thought I’d see the day when that’d happen… but it just makes sense to conserve space. What’s even better is that everything was either deeply discounted or ‘free’ (rather, swapped out on MUA). The only thing I really dropped coin on was that Sugarpill palette, which came out to $39 shipped. So I’m really chuffed to have landed so many sweet bargains. I’m sure there will be some epic picture posts of my haul to follow.
