So, after two weeks of endless stress, I spent Friday studying 11am-9:30pm to finish my goddamn paper, then spent Saturday at my parents', alternatively participating in drama I REALLY DID NOT NEED and going to the beach. \\\\\\\\\o///////// THE BEACH WAS MAJESTIC AND WONDERFUL. I wore my new bathing suit and it was awesome. Just. OMG, amazing life choices: going to the beach.
After that I had lunch with my folks and then drove back to Tel Aviv to watch the Hawks/Wings game with roga
at the new sports bar that we'd never been to before. It was pretty much completely empty except one Red Wings fan and one dude in a Hossa shirt. Again to my surprise, once ascertaining that neither of us was from Chicago, the other hockey fans pretty much ignored us. IDK! I'm still trying to figure out how sports fandom works IRL. Maybe it's weird to be too friendly with people you don't know who are at the bar to cheer for the same team as you? IDEK.
I was wearing my Ovi shirt and as we exited the bar some dude shouted "Hey, NICE OVECHKIN SHIRT!" at me and I turned around and went "thank you!" and it was delightful.
After the game I went to pick cesy
up at the airport.
On Sunday I decided to skip work, for multiple reasons, and instead went to enjoy a morning at the Tel Aviv port with snacks and cesy
before heading over to uni to hand in my stupid paper. I'd waited this long because I couldn't find the guidelines for submitting academic papers for this particular faculty (I'd never taken classes there before and this was a special occasion), so I waited for the admin offices to be open, but of course THEY HAVE NO GUIDELINES because WTF. First time in my life that a faculty does not have ANY SORT OF GUIDELINES for how to submit academic papers that are less than a thesis.
So, whatever, I went to buy a binder and print out the paper all of which took about an hour, handed it in, and then realized it's my mom's birthday in 3 days and I don't have a present for her. So, RUSHED OVER TO THE MALL to get her the present I've been thinking of, then went back and hung out with cesy
for the rest of the day. We watched Mystery, Alaska
! IDEK, Russel Crowe, IDEK.
This morning I'm back at work: meetings and then skipping class to work on a presentation I have for another class (that is also today). Next week? I have another presentation. THIS GODDAMN SEMESTER. It's nearly exam season and I've been drowning in work this entire fucking time.
I'm probably not going to have much computer time this week, so just FYI. Replies to emails will probably take longer than usual. Though, if any Israeli fangirls are reading this: Friday's meetup is being arranged, that is a priority and I'll be sending emails as soon as I have logistics figured out.
Things I want to do today: watch Game of Thrones, hang out, lounge on the beach. Things I will actually do today: work, work, study, work, study.
