Rather than attempting to balance blogging every day and finishing up the first quarter of my PhD, I’ve decided to do a weekly round up of all things festive. This week saw me panicking about school, lots of coffee, a panel on saving the ocean’s coral, and a christmas tree party…
The Great School Panic: Picture this. Monday afternoon, a paper you’ve so carefully researched but hit a brick wall on (due 8 days later), a meeting with your professor, “this isn’t going to go where you want it to go, I think you need to scrap it.” Hang on a hot second there. What?! Cue me having a minor (read major) meltdown, scraping the entire 12 pages that I’d written and starting from scratch. Good times. Fortunately, I’ve managed to find a related topic, so not all is lost. Good grief.
The Maple Soy Latte Hype: This week has been the week of maple soy lattes – I honestly think I might be keeping our local coffee shop in business!
Chasing Coral: On Tuesday night, I was super fortunate to see a screening of Chasing Coral and a panel featuring Ruth Gates. Not to preach or anything here, but please, I urge you to take 90 minutes of your day to watch this documentary on Netflix & consider how we can help to save a dying ecosystem.
Decorating Trees and Getting Festive: Last night we held a tree decorating party at our house. I spent my life savings in Michael’s, buying everything we might ever need to make our own tree ornaments which, might I add, are now adorning the tree. So festive, and just what everyone needed as we head into finals week!
