The Weekly Recap (8) : The One With All The Updates

Sunday, June 3, 2018

Hi guys!

I'm so sorry about the lack of consistent posting! I feel terrible, but I haven't really had the time to post as often. Plus, I have not been reading as much either, so that doesn't help in the review-writing department. This week was such an eventful week for me! I had my thesis presentation on Friday, so I was preparing for that the whole week. I had my Powerpoint slides already created and just needed to practice it. Then, I was waiting for some important news which was so nerve-wracking because my whole future depended on it. Anyways, I'm sure you've heard the news by now if you follow me on Twitter, but I got into a PhD program, which is what I'll be doing starting this fall. Just when I thought I was done with school - haha! I am very excited about being accepted into the program as it was quite competitive. There were 25 applicants for 2 fully-funded positions, so I wasn't sure if I would get in or not. My good friend from the program got the other position, so I'm extra happy about that too.

My defense went fairly well. I had some technical issues because of the computer set up over there was being a little annoying, but everyone was very understanding. I think I did a decent job overall! After that, some friends and I went drinking at 2 pm, which was not the brightest idea. But it was fun, and we needed to celebrate and unwind. My parents get here in 2 weeks and I'm looking forward to meeting them. I still have another full week of school to go, and a thesis to finish writing, but hopefully, it will go smoothly. I'm ready for my summer vacation now.

I've thought about what to do with the blog while I'm on vacation and I think I'll be taking a break from blogging officially. I don't quite know when I'll be back, but it's obvious that not many people are visiting around this time of the year, so I might as well take a break too. Next week will probably be my last week of posting, but I'll keep you guys updated.

Hope you guys had a good reading week!
Week In Reading
Making Up (London Celebrities, #3) The Kiss Quotient (The Kiss Quotient, #1) I Think I Love You (Oxford, #5) Head Over Heels

My reading has been kinda sad lately. I wasn't in the mood for anything, so I spent my time re-reading Making Up by Lucy Parker and also The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang. Both books I absolutely adored even more the 2nd time around. I also read I Think I Love You which I enjoyed a lot! I'm sad the series is over! I'm going to pick up Head Over Heels next. Hopefully, I can get some more reading done this week!
