So, this is Christmas
December 23, 2013
On my way to lab this morning I passed by some friends and they reminded me that it was almost Christmas. I forgot about Christmas. But there are two very significant reasons for this: 1) I'm so used to Japan already, and basically Christmas is just another day. When I used to work at the school, Christmas was no holiday and I just got used to that. 2) Thesis alpha draft is due tomorrow! Mind you that in no way means that I will be "done." It simply means that it's time to have your thesis draft walk a catwalk in front of the professors that is in reality not a catwalk at all, but a hangman's gallows where instead of just hanging the thesis, they shoot it, too. Continuously. For a whole month to follow. Then, when that is over, you need to defend it. HA! Bring it.
