\o/: My coursework for this term is now officially in! This marks the end of my (required) classes!

/o\: HOLY HELL ONLY A MONTH AND A HALF LEFT FOR COMPS REVIEW, SO BEHIND ON READINGS.

On the plus side I can now spend the rest of the month reading and whiteboard-ing everything away, except for the time I need to spend on grading for my TAship (but also the weekend I'm spending at friends' wedding in a couple weeks, so...!).

+ Ugh, I keep saying I plan to be Better At DW sometime soon and then, well, things just happen. I'm making a last-minute trip to Montreal for school stuff )

+ Happy even-more-pi(e)-than-usual day! I don't know that I'm patient enough to do this, but someone else should definitely make a PIE-RATE SHIP for today. :D I am, however, sadly lacking in pie-cons, so if anyone has images of delicious pie, please share so I can make those?

+ A has just informed me that Rodrigo y Gabriela are performing at the Montreal jazz fest, which is ~incidentally~ right before a zouk weekend event. Bribery: ACHIEVED.

♠ Since I was apparently one of the last ones on the train, here's my thread at [personal profile] kate_nepveu's words & deeds love meme 2.0!

♠ NYC stats are so annoying, even with leads from the university librarian. /o\ The NYC City Planning Department and DOH sites have been helpful in the slightly-off-target, facedesk type of way; I keep running into overly detailed or overly expansive census files! You'd think someone somewhere would have a nice comprehensive county-level demographic overview, but if there is one (is that expectation really too convenient? idek), I haven't found it yet. In the meantime: if anyone has suggestions re: where to look for demographics and education-type stats overviews, I would really, really appreciate them. ;; Especially education-type stats.

♠ Anyone playing Health Month this month? I stopped for a while but I figured that what with the beginning of thesis-ing, I'd better start watching certain habits again. Sleep, for example. >.>

1. I FINISHED CODING THE LAST OF MY 30 TRANSCRIPTS TODAY! \o/ \o/ \o/ and also OW, I feel a return of tendonitis-ish pain thanks to all that scribbling. I imagine this is what surfacing from scuba diving must feel like, except all in my brain.

2. Oh look, a Kuroko no Basuke friending meme! Maybe I'll actually play in this one while I'm recovering from thesis immersion... or maybe not, considering how little I've been able to interact with new people from the last friending meme I played in. ;____; (Hi, new people! I swear I am reading, it's just that I am awful at remembering to comment on things.) Also I have managed zero fannish content, icons notwithstanding. Woes.

3. Jeremy Lin meets Wat Misaka- ugh, my heart. JLin, how do you do this to me, I am not even invested in basketball. (Or... non-Kuroko basketball. >.>)

4. I've been going around spamming your threads at [personal profile] staranise's words and deeds love meme, but I know I've probably missed a bunch. If I haven't commented, please feel free to toss links my way! Also, I just put up my thread, because it would be nice to remember the things I've done that you felt were meaningful while I'm scrambling to accomplish so much thesis else.

4. This looks interesting: Kartika Review: The 500 Project

5. [personal profile] rydra_wong linked to f.lux, and I have to say, two days post-installation, I am already feeling SO much less eyestrain, and actually walking away from the computer at a more reasonable hour. A decided improvement, considering the late-night reading habits I grew up with! *g*

eta: HOLY SHIT, I JUST GOT ACCEPTED INTO GRAD SCHOOL. AND I'M NOT EVEN DONE WITH ALL MY APPLICATIONS YET!!!! AHHHHHHHHHH. I hope you all have a happy, happy Friday, everyone!
