New? Oh, not that much. Just, you know, GOT MY FRICKING DEGREE, but other than that… Yes, as of two weeks ago, I am the proud owner of a certificate that I can hang on my wall (I mean I probably won’t do that, because it feels douchey, but I gave a copy to family members so THEY can hang it on their walls and brag about how cool I am. I don’t think they have yet, but I’m sure they will do it soon. Any day now). It looks very fancy. Definitely worth the last three and a half years I’ve spent attaining it. Also, I now have an unconditional offer for my MA and will be starting that next month. I’m moving out of my current flat next week, my last day at work is on Tuesday, and basically IT’S THE END OF AN ERA. I’ve been kind of silent here lately, because I was attempting to recover from doing literally all the things (I think my battery recharge is now at about 60%, but apparently you do not get a complimentary holiday with your degree – shocking, I know) and also because I’m trying to spend time with my friends before I move.
Last week my birthday happened AND my blog also turned two years. I did a survey when my blog turned one last year, but I felt with all the not-posting I’ve been doing lately I should probably focus on actually doing that instead. So yeah… hi! *awkward wave* I DID write a discussion post for the Shattering Stigmas event, and you can read it over here at Shannon’s blog. Other than that, I’ve been playing pokemon X (I may or may not have bought myself a Nintendo 3DS as a reward for getting my BA, because I’m a nerd), listening to Rick Riordan’s books (I loved the Heroes of Olympus series and am now on to The Hidden Oracle), and watching Parks and Rec
okay fine and pokemon but I swear my obsession is already turning into a casual like again. I’m also halfway through Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and my reactions have been up-and-down, but I will hold out judgement until I’ve finished it. Oh! I’m also participating in the OTSP Secret Sister project (it’s kind of like Secret Santa except it’s for six months and with other bloggers), and it’s been really fun already.
I probably got more than that since I last posted, but that’s all I can remember. I’m listening to this as an audiobook, because Rick Riordan’s books are kind of perfect for that, and I keep freaking people out by randomly laughing on the bus. It’s a bonus, really.
