1. It seems weeks since someone last knocked on my door, due to my voluntary proposal isolation. First knock heralds an excited bride-to-be who makes the most of my laptop desk. The second is from the amazing chef who raids my bare kitchen to create a wonderful meal out of thin air. Lastly is a mini-closet lugging room mate who knocks again, this time bearing lechon kawali and pan de sal. My place is meant for guests.
2. After scribbling my outline in my thesis journal, I try to turn on Athena. Horrors, she showed the BSOD (blue screen of death with an error message). I wailed via text, and the phone rings instantaneously. It is my Ian, lunch delayed to help me troubleshoot long distance. Thankfully, Athena got over the blues and started up again.
3. Twelve hours , twelve resources, eight pages, and three cups of coffee later, I have a thesis proposal draft. Time to nap so that I will be coherent when I submit papers. And for fellow UP Diliman College of Education MRR students, the deadline for request for readmission and extension of residency is on March 30. Details here.
