KGSP - Not So Golden Week

So in Japan, the week we just had would be called Golden Week. It's called that because they have a string of holidays during the week and so it's just a fun week full of celebration. The last time I went to Japan was during Golden Week actually. Not a great time to go, but still was a fun time.

But obviously I do not live in Japan. In Korea, it's not called Golden Week, but it's kinda similar. They both have Children's Day, which was on Friday, but they also have two other holidays throughout the week, making it essentially a two day work week.

Here's the Cheery Hoegaarden I didn't take a picture of last week.

So what does that mean for me? Well not much really. I got my phone fixed (again) on Tuesday and it hasn't broke yet, so that's a good sign. Other than that it's pretty much just been a lot of thesis writing. The first draft of my thesis is due on Wednesday so I've been spending most of my time on that.

It's actually coming together I think. 99% of the writing is done and now I'm just working on the figures. Soon enough it'll be done and I can focus on getting ready for the actual presentation, which is the week after.

I didn't really take any pictures this week so here's my study timeline.

So life really hasn't been that exciting. While everyone's been celebrating random holidays it's just been business as usual for me, albeit a bit more relaxed since people aren't really around. It's actually been quite relaxing actually, despite the looming deadlines.

In other news, the air quality is really bad. It's that time of year again when the air is worse than usual. I've been meaning to take pictures but I haven't gotten around to it. But all the pollution and dust and pollen and stuff gets out of control for a few weeks every spring, and we're deep in it now.

It's just kinda gross you know? Everything gets caked with this yellow powder and it just doesn't look healthy. It'll pass in another week or so though, so it's just a bit longer. But until then I'm just wearing my mask a bit more often.

Oh, another sad thing happened this week too. Remember how I posted last week saying how my fish has been acting weird? Well, he didn't make it through the week. It's a bit sad really. Even though he was kinda just like, on my floor, it was nice having something alive in the room.

RIP 12/23/16 - 5/5/17.

I don't think I'll get a replacement. Just doesn't seem right, especially since I don't even know how much longer I'll be in Daejeon.
