I was offered a job/internship at the National Commission for Looted Art and have an interview with the Hauser Wirth gallery on Tuesday (its feast or famine with these things), my 10K is tomorrow, and all I have to do for my thesis is write my conclusion, do some edits and hand it in 15 September. As a congrats for the job offer, I went window shopping on bond street. I love window shopping in really nice places, don't really like window shopping in stores that I can just barely afford. It was soothing in a weird way.
after a bagajillion times sending out my cv and just as many rejections, I finally have an interview. Now, I'm not sure if I actually want this particular job. Oh well, at least its a slight confidence booster
I just made a batch of oatmeal cookies. seriously, they're amazing...some walnuts, dried apricots, brown sugar and oatmeal. So comfort food. I put them on their cooling rack and went out to the grocery store. When I came back, my flat was filled with the wonderful aroma of homemade cookies. I can't begin to express how happy this made me
Recently, I've noticed that, when I'm typing I'll type a completely different word than the one I intend to, without realising it. It's not a typo, I type a different word (which typically starts with the same letter). For example, just recently I wanted to type which and I typed what. I have typed museum when I meant to type matter. I don't even notice that I've typed the wrong word until I finish it. screwy.
Also, my combi washer/dryer is on final spin mode. It sounds like a jet engine. I'm very afraid that it is going to spin itself out from under my counter and fly at me in a fitful rage. and yet, it never gets my jeans completely dry...
I finished my 10K yesterday and even met my goal (under 50 min, finished in 49.19). At the startline I was standing by this German guy that finished at about the same time as me. He came up to congratulate me at hte end of the race, let me know how impressed he was by my time. "You were pretty quick for a girl". hmph.
It felt amazing, love the adrenaline and just signed up for another in August. Also was taken on a surprise trip to Wales for our anniversary weekend. It was so gorgeous and relaxing. Totally redefined all preconceived notion of 'middle of nowhere' and 'country road'.
in indiana in less than a week, can't believe it really.
