I had planned to wake up early yesterday so I could finish last week's readings for my class, as well as read the texts for this week to be ready for tuesday. I'm glad I'm only having this one class as a start-up to start school again, because I know myself, and it does proves difficult to motivate myself to not be a procrastinator ! I think I'm doing well now. Sadly, as I thought, yesterday I didn't do any readings. I woke up early and went on the search for a new laptop, in order to get the programs and nice working computer I need to work on. So after going to three stores, I decided to get a Lenovo laptop with touch screen and transforms-as-a-tablet style.
So far I like it ! I heard many people complaining about Windows 8.1 because it is kind of optimized for tablet devices, but since I mainly use the Desktop only for Internet or school word such as using the Office programs, it doesn't bother me at all right now. I even could send some resumes out this week-end.... 9 of them ! I'm really motivated to find a new job now. Not only do I need to get away from the atmosphere of my current job along with the people I cannot get along with, I also need some fresh air, and also a bit more money (we have to be honest with ourselves). I hope I get some calls back ! Hopefully by the end of the semester, I'll be out of there....
Today, I could stay in bed a little more, even though I have been woken up by my dry cough and sutffy nose.... I took my warm coffee, and attacked the pile of dishes that have been there for .... Well let's say an embarrassing long time. And I ended up cleaning them all, and cleaning the kitchen as well ! It feels really great to finally see the bottom of the sink (yes it's been that long). I felt really proud as well, so it motivated me to continue on my good day ! I sat down and could get through all my readings, it even was quite early still !
So since we are organizing a meeting for Valentine's Day on febuary 14th with some lolitas,
I started crafting for my outfit !
It's quite the unusual color for me, but I had to go with red ! I hope my dress comes in very soon. I'm not sure to wear it but I need options ! We are supposed to go to this place where they offer varieties of hot chocolate as well as some pâtisseries and crêpes, but I hope we get to go in ! Valentine's Day is a busy day for them, and they don't take reservations, so we'll have to cross our fingers to get our group of 15 in there ! Hopefully there will be no problem.
Speaking of lolita, I am excited to see Moitie's new collection ! The GLB will come out only in febuary, but Mana posted a sneak peak on his Twitter not too long ago, when he went to the photoshoot for the GLB. He was wearing what looks like the next "series", a kind of silky fabric monochrome roses print. I will most likely not be able to afford it, but for the last couple years I always end up really liking the design and print of the flowery/cuter series. I usually end up selling them however, because it is in fact too cute for me to be comfortable wearing out casually, so I will do my best to resist the temptation. Maybe some nice accessories will come out as well ! As for the EGA collection well, I,m usually always impressed by the designs. I don't know if I'll get anything this time around ! I will probably post images on here when it comes out as soon as I can find them !
Right now, my focus is on trying to find a new job, so I can stop worrying about my finances so much. And since I have plans to maybe go back to school full time next year (**maybe**) and also to save up for future projects, so I will really have to control my shopping urges..... We'll see how that goes !
