Happy holidays, f-list!
I hope you guys who celebrate Christmas is having a good time, and that the rest of the f-list that doesn't celebrate it is having a nice holiday ♥
I myself is having a nice time reading my backlog fics. It's nice having a break, and a nice, private time at home :D
I... got a dream about Merlin series. In my dream, the penultimate episode showed that there's Morgana and Morgause meeting with Arthur and Merlin in some sort of a garden party. Someone (either Morgana or Morgause) told Arthur that Merlin had magic. Arthur looked more resigned, rather than angry, almost as if he already knows that fact. He then asked Gwaine to battle it out with Merlin one-on-one as punishment for Merlin. At the battle arena, Gwaine told Arthur that he wouldn't do it, because Merlin was his friend. Magically, Arthur switched over to being all friendly to Merlin seconds after he heard that comment.
The weird thing was, he repaired his relationship with Merlin, by singing a song. I don't remember the song, but the word 'peanut' and something about friendship was included in it. Merlin also sang back, and I remembered being surprised on how pleasant Colin's voice was. In my dream, he had this lovely tenor voice. Then there's this epic group dancing like in a musical.
Then I woke up -_-
/end of random post, back to writing report.
The whole thesis thing is finally finished. After a frustrating week full of revisions that seemingly never ending, it's really over. Thank God.
Yesterday was the announcement of my final thesis score and final GPA. I found out that I got the first rank in the Industrial/Organizational class, and 14th in the professional psychology graduate program. Yay, I guess? I don't know, I'm not feeling really celebratory. I just feel a relief that it's all over, a feeling that seemingly was shared by others that scored better than me. If anything, having a good score feels like a burden since there's expectation. But well, I'm glad that I've done well enough to make my family and friends quite proud.
The thing that worth a bit celebration is me getting a tablet. YAAAY! It's a Motorola Xoom, with Android 3.0 OS. I actually wanted a smartphone so I can be connected on the go, but the tablet was on sale and I finally chose buying the tablet instead. The tablet is connected by Wifi, but no additional 3G connection through SIM card, so there goes my plan of being always connected. I'm not really complaining though, since it's just lovely to read e-books there, and the e-mail client has a lovely minimalistic, practical design.
I haven't named it yet. It's temporarily called Agria out of whim. Any of you got any ideas on what should I name my tablet? It's black, looks tough, quite bulky. I have the urge to name it with something Latin / not common. Hm...
So, the past weeks had gone in a... rather chaotic way. I somehow managed to finish my thesis near the deadline, two days ago. It has a lot of imperfections, but isn't it always? And tomorrow, at 15.00 in my time zone (GMT +07:00), I'll be doing my thesis defence.
God, I feel so nervous. Especially since I'm responsible to drop my thesis to my examiner's house, and I don't have a way to know whether she has received or not since her mobile is off for two days -_-
Ah well, whatever. Wish me luck!
I'm not dead yet, just wishing that I could quickly get out of doing thesis. It's not doing really well, and I'm afraid that I might have to extend being frustrated with it for one semester. I'm still trying, though (wish me luck!). I'm currently in a stand still. I can't do anything much before my advisor give me her approval to my variables (plus, she doesn't have time to read my thesis and meet up with me until next week, even though the deadline is three weeks from now. Good God...)
I really miss you guys, so while I got a bit free time, please tell me how you're doing, friends. Is there anything interesting going on with your life or fandom?
How are you guys? You might probably already noticed, but I'm currently in hiatus. I've done my internship report (thank God), but thesis suddenly eats my life. ...And I'm stopping myself to rant much about it here, since it's a long story, and thinking about it makes me want to throw something in frustration. Let's just say that it's a lot harder than I thought, and I'm pressed with time.
Anyway, I might be available again on May, since I want to concentrate on thesis. I'll be reachable via PM or comments to this entry. I might also randomly popped comments to your entry or your fics when I can. If you need me, feel free to message me with your ramblings / whining / rantings / questions. I'll get back to you as soon as possible. I miss you all already ;_;
Be well, dearies~
