Sunday Photo Mishmash: last month (doom, dissertation, despair)

9 Sep

Sunday Photo Mishmashes are BACK! =) This past month has mostly involved stressful list-making and dissertation-writing activities.

(Below): Before going to a mini-photo shoot to be in a Durham University brochure. It was all very fun.


Pink shimmery nails during tough dissertation times. Before I bit my fingers to the bone.


The most gloriously awaited book this summer. It’s been sitting by my window for weeks, and now I get to read it and absorb it. Mmm. (AND it’s a signed copy! I had not been expecting that! So wonderful.)


Writing my dissertation…


More writing…


This is from way back at the beginning of August when a friend of ours visited Durham, and he treated us to the most amazing meal in York. YUM.


My boyfriend decided that he needed to paint a red heart onto my blue nails. So cute.


A few weeks ago I made lunch for us for the first time ever! It was very delicious pizza with brie and grapes and walnuts and honey and sunflower seeds!


My sweetest friend AnnaMaria sent me a gorgeous care package from Malta (the Thesis Survival Pack™!). It came at the perfect time and helped so much.


The most amazing lunch with my wonderful Singaporean friend at a pancake house in Durham.


My boyfriend and I marked 3 years since meeting for the first time (at an editorial board meeting for The Insiter) last week, and we had dessert at a new cupcake place in Durham: Be Tempted. It’s SO GOOD. Please go.


Finally day of writing my dissertation. I felt like a giant mouse, and acted like one too.


FINALLY. Submitted my dissertation. A very happy, relieved photo, this one. Thanks for everyone’s support. If you want to read some crazy desperate posts, head over to my MA Dissertation Progress category.
