One class left. One week left until my last papers for said class need to be handed in. Two weeks until my thesis prospectus is due into the Graduate Studies office.
Five days until I move out of my parents’ in-law apartment and into my brand-new life.
My caffeine addiction has reached new heights. My bank account has reached new lows (not really, I have money in savings that I’m attempting to NOT tap into, but considering how fucking EXPENSIVE moving is, that’s starting to look less and less like a possibility right now).
I shouldn’t complain too much. Because I have amazing friends who are willing to help me move, I don’t need a moving truck, so that negates a big bill right there. And I don’t begrudge them the takeout and beer that I will be paying for on Saturday night. Much of this week is going to consist of taking drives over to the apartment and bringing my things over little by little. Friday night, D and I are bringing over the furniture that’s been in his apartment ever since I moved out in November. And Saturday is the big move itself. Sunday Samantha moves in, but at that point (hopefully) all of my things, my cats, and I will be settled in, and the internet will be set up (I know, right, priorities!).
I’m meeting with my thesis adviser this afternoon to discuss my prospectus. Which, of course, being me, I have already envisioned as a negative, with her telling me that my prospectus is garbage and I should just quit the program now. My mind is such a wonderful place to live at times.
Went to IKEA on Sunday with Samantha, and got some stuff for the apartment. I needed a new bedding set (well, I guess that’s more ‘want’ than ‘need’, but whatever), and this is the one I got for $30:
And I got these (not from IKEA) for my bedroom:
Love. I want the apartment to be filled with candles. I think it will be. I have enough Partylite stuff to last a year, haha.
There are still a few things I need to get for the new place — a set of sheets, a shower curtain rod (the former tenants took the last one — I KNOW) — but we’re almost there. By this time next week, I’ll be in the new place, the papers will hopefully be done (they’re due Tuesday, May 7th) and I’ll be on my way to going full-tilt into summer.
I can’t wait.
