I’ve been accumulating Douglas gift cards for a while because while I like perfume and make-up, buying either is not high enough on my priority list to actually make time for a shopping trip. Today however, I found myself with some time to kill at the mall, so I quickly checked if my beauty guru Jessica (who is also an expert on all sorts of trashed-up food) has anything to recommend. Sure enough, my store carried soap & glory products which she had raved about, so I bought a few things. Happy shower times ahead!

Hi! Remember me? I’m supposed to post pictures on a daily basis but somehow February flew right by me. Work was hectic and crazy and disappointing and a little depressing. Private things were fun and exciting and blissful and definitely interesting. I took a few photos here and there, but I don’t like to think up memories from 10+ days ago. So I figured I’d use this entry as a largely uncommented pic dumb and start fresh in March – this time hopefully more in time. ;)

So this was February.

After weeks of researching with which phone I should replace my slowly dying S2, I FINALLY bought an S4 (thereby continuing my habit of living behind the curve and usually buying whatever was just replaced by a newer model). I’m super bummed that I wasn’t able to move my Whatsapp conversations and most of my apps, but having a phone that doesn’t freeze once a day and that has working vibration is amazing! :) Also, my old phone wasn’t able to sync with my Fitbit, so that’s a nice bonus.

Life these days revolves around making our apartment pretty. Our shower has a weird shower curtain setup going on (it’s called something along the lines of “spider shower” and I advise against googling this term) and we couldn’t find any place that sells their shower curtains separate from the installation… thing. Luckily, one of the many websites we browsed mentioned the measurements of these special curtains, which, it turns out, are not so special after all because they are pretty close to the length and width of normal curtains. So we got this beauty. :)

Day 150

When it came to what to wear to my defense, I never even considered a dress. Instead, I invested in two jackets and fancy pants that I hope will stay with me for a while.

Day 118

I spent the weekend at my parents’ place up North. As I’m never home during normal business hours, I tend to order a lot of stuff online and have it shipped to either the convenience store close to my house or to my parents.
This guy up there is my phone’s new best friend. It’s an external battery which supposedly holds five full charges for my phone battery. Let me tell you, my phone is my lifeline because it brings me to my participants’ homes, it records my experiments, and it’s got tons of podcasts and tv shows to entertain me at the gym or while commuting. Also, lately there’s been some bug which causes the phone to freeze – and if I then turn it on again, I find myself with the battery status dropped from 80% to 15%. No fun. Cue: external battery.
The battery is chunky (it’s a little bigger than my phone) but that’s really not an issue if you’re carrying around a laptop and other stuff anyway. I only use it when necessary, but it’s so convenient to just connect the two in your backpack with no need for an external plug. Great investment!
(No no no, I’m not getting paid by the company, I just really like their product.)

Day 116

A huuuuge package from Amazon (seriously, these guys need to work on their box sizes) arrived and it got me a new gorillapod. It comes with a little spirit level which is cute if not necessarily all that useful. I’m happy with this tripod because I mainly shoot through a 50 mm prime lens, but it’s a little on the light-weight side if you’re using heavier lenses.
