But in Korea, it's a bit different. I'm not at home so I can't spend time with family. It's cold enough that it feels cold, but there's no snow in Korea. And also it's the end of the semester so deadlines are stacked against me so hard.
As stacked against me as the voting to impeach President Park.
So all in all, it's just kind of a miserable time. Obviously I try to make the best out of it, but it's hard when I'm just spending all my time in the lab everyday. I thought I had a lot of work so I was spending a lot of time in the lab.
I was wrong, I have more work than I thought. So I need to spend even more time in the lab working. Which is wonderful you know, pulling like 60 hour weeks in the lab only to find out that you're still behind on all of your work.
Trying to stay festive in the middle of the mess I'm in has me like this.
Not a fun feeling. But who knows. I'm trying to stay optimistic and maybe take some time off in January or February after the conference deadline and just like, have fun. It'll be nice I think. But I haven't had a chance to plan anything yet but that's the goal.
I do have things to look forward to in the immediate future though. For one, I'm expecting some packages. My family back in Canada mailed me some stuff for Christmas, and my friend from Japan forwarded a toy I got shipped to her house.
Gotta try to fit stuff under this tree somehow.
Silver linings right?
