So... Today was the day of turning in my thesis. Which I have to drive to the nearby town to do. I had no stress, because I finished everything on Tuesday, so I was golden.

Right up until the point I get in my car, turn the key, and nothing happens. At 11. And we have to turn them in by 12 at the latest. Straight off, there are two choices; taking the bus (which has its closest stop about 10 minutes walk from the office where we have to deliver them at, you guessed it!, 10 minutes to12). Or take a chance that my local mechanic would help a panicked student and lend me some power.

Thankfully, he did, and I turned in my thesis with a whole 10 minutes to spare!

Afterwards, a flock of us went out to eat lunch, which was really nice, but afterwards I kinda wanted to go home. Which turned out to be a good idea since I have, at current, a temperature of 39 celsius (102.2 fahrenheit) so I feel utterly crappy.

Anyway. Just wanted y'all to know that with my thesis done I might get to do some fun stuff once again... ;-)

Well, fuck

 So... Over the past month I've suffered two weeks of total and utter writer's block. Nothing. i couldn't even edit my thesis, so I'm woefully behind on my schedule and not really sure how I'm going to make it. Well. I'm going to have to, one way or another.

Then I've just been sick. I still have a cold, but for the first two days I ran a fever and litterally couldn't think. Again; not really the kind of thing I need right now.

Also, I've found an amazing house, which I really, really want, so I mailed my bank. Well. One of my banks. The lady who replied was... Less than informative, and I couldn't get a clear answer one way or another besides; 'get a job, and then we'll maybe look'. Cue me being pissed off. Not for getting a 'no', but for getting a; 'I think you should wait'. That's not as useful as a no, with an explanation of why not.

Fortunately, my second bank was vastly more helpful, and willing to at least look at my economy in combination with the price on the house.

And then, of course, I went and looked for a job (again), and found... pretty much the job I want. Doing marketing for the museums in the city the house I was looking at is 3 miles outside. This is what I've been working on with my master's, just... This plus knowledge about how to design and attract and evolve museums to bring them into Century of the Fruitbat without losing the thing that makes museums special.

So... Now I know what I'm going for. Kind thoughts, please! :-)

It's all about the C's today. It was career-day at the university, and since I haven't actually bought any clothes for about two years, I needed to start out the day buying something a little more... professional than was in my closet. And considering I'm plus-sized, that's a whole lot harder than I think it ought to be. Apparently plus-sized women don't have jobs where they need to look smart.

Then on to the career-day. Too many people for my tastes, by far. And since my education is both tiny and mostly unknown, nobody are really interested. Plus... I can smalltalk with the best of them, but low self-esteem and anxiety-issues means that making contact with complete strangers is a huge deal for me. Also... I'm very uncomfortable just hanging around, waiting for someone to have time. And given the number of people, that was pretty much all there was to do.

Lastly; car. My car is from '92, and I've had a lot of issues with it. It's cost me more in repairs over the past six years than I bought it for, 6 years ago. And now it's time for the bi-annual checkup, required by the state, and I'm not going to go through with that. What I am going to do... is try to make up my mind to buy my first-ever new car. I'm kind of keen on the new VW up!, but it's a big decision...
