I came back and after a long-ish lunch, I sat in my room for over an hour, feeling weak and lethargic from the horrible menstrual cramps with which I was inflicted. When I finally hauled my ass to the Magdalene library, it was 3pm. I filled out the application form, then spent the next hour or so trying to write a made-up second research topic, and spending too much time on unnecessary information.
I just finished the second research topic in, oh, 30 minutes. Why can't I just focus? Why? I am an idiot.
I was also distracted by non-work issues. I do not feel like talking about it.
My Taiwanese PhD friend, Chung-Han, gave me something from Taiwan. How nice of him! It's red bean mochi. I miss Taiwan so much that I really like it. This is a rare selfless moment on my part so let me brag about it: when he gave me the mochi, I immediately thought of Wei-Yun, who hasn't been home in over a year or something like that (it's really long time, let's just say). As such, I just messaged her on Facebook, asking if she wanted something from home.
I'm not a big fan of mochi but I quite like this one. Needless to say, I also asked Dominic if he wanted some. I still feel bad that I didn't bring back anything from Singapore while he gave me yummy chocolates from his hometown and some fruity thingy from Basel (less yummy, but still nice).
I'm meeting him at 9ish. I feel like taking a nap but it's almost 10 minutes to 9 and I have to change out of my pyjamas pants and overall unglam at-home state of being.
I wore my new Mango jeans today and I was very upset to gradually discover that it's too big for me. I hope I can get someone to help me make it smaller. It's really nice, so I will be really sad if I can't alter it!
