Paper!

Monday, March 22, 2010

Is totally not done! Haha. Most of the meat of it is done, all I have to do today is finish the analysis, write the introduction and conclusion, and re-write lit review and theoretical framework. This may sound like a lot, but it's less than half the paper that I actually have to pull new words out of my ass and write. The review and framework are hefty chunks, so those I'm leaving for last and will allow to go into tomorrow because they are somewhat separate in some respects. So essentially, what this will come down to, is I will have written a very solid 60 page paper in 3.5 days. That's pretty hot if I do say so myself...

My FANTASTIC plan for the day...
--> Print out all my work thus far and take with me
-->Starbs drink for bfast since I'm out of milk (whoops)
--> Get my hurr did! Pics in tomorrow's blog (while writing freehand based on all the notes I've printed, got to utilize every minute to the MAX)
--> Stop by home to see if my other dress came in
--> Head to Fairfax, trade a dress for grad (I'll explain), and hit Starbs to study
--> Meet Christine at DSW (KULAS1CR) YAYAYAYAYAYAY!!! So my incentive to finish by Sunday night was over $100 bucks to shop there. I'm giving myself $75 because, hey now, what I lost in time, I made up for in really quite good work
--> Also go by Kohl's to return some stuff for C
--> Get manis/pedis
--> Foooooooooooooooooooooooood
--> Finish the paper

So here's the dress story. Mama ordered me my graduation dress as a gift and got it a size smaller, because, hey now, April I can workout a couple of hours a day. Aaahhh, the luxury of being jobless and not needing a ton of time to do the schoolwork. The bottom half fit like nobody's business. It was AMAZING. The dang thing won't zip anywhere near my boobs emoticon. So it looks like I'm going a size up and a couple of week before grad having everything below the boobs taken in (and no, there is no way unless I lose over 30 pounds in a month which I have no want to do, that this thing will actually fit, my boobs aren't known for shrinking a whole lot when I lose weight and I ALWAYS have a fairly broad back). What a nutchuck. I don't know what a nutchuk is, but whatever.

When it comes to dresses, it'll often be that size. When I was a varsity swimmer I was a 10/12 up top in the shoulders and a 6/8 on the bottom. My shoulders have gotten bigger as have my boobs at their smallest. I believe it's going to be a fairly solid 14, maaaaaaaaaaaaaybe 12 at my goal weight, while being around an 8 on the bottom. That's a rather large sizing difference, so I better make best friends with a tailor! emoticon

On a really random TMI note, I have a zit in my ear. It's really annoying as I wear hearing aids and it just aggravates the daylights out of it. And that's my funny note of the day. Really, none of the rest of this was funny...

    I'm like Sweetzmix--I'm hippy! I had to get a bridesmaid dress for a wedding and they insisted I could get the smaller of two sizes, even with my hips. They were wrong. Hahaha--good luck with your dress!

    I have a big problem with dresses too! And I am so excited to wear some cute ones this summer... but I'm doubtful about any of them fitting correctly!

    I am the opposite. My booty and hips are always way larger than everything else. Either way I feel your pain b/c it makes some items when shopping a pain in the behind. But just getting the larger size dress taken in is always a better idea. It will fit WAY better and comfy!

    Busy girl!

    Have you always worn hearing aids? Did you go to an SLP as a kid? I am (hopefully!) going to grad school this fall to become one, and am so so freaking excited about it!

    I have had the same problem with dresses! And I'm not even that big up top!!! I don't get it. Good luck getting it tailored! I will be visiting one soon to take in some of my favorite pencil skirts that I refuse to part with!
