Finally, A Break!

November 12, 2010 By: Nopy Category: Personal

The last few weeks have been just day after day of endless work and it really shows when you consider how cluttered my desk is. I like to keep things nice and tidy so it’s very rare that my desk ever ends up like what’s shown above.

Somehow I managed to get a temporary position at a research lab, own the GRE, write several exams, attend all of my classes, and clock in a lot of overtime hours at work all at the same time without collapsing from exhaustion. Needless to say, I had to sacrifice sleep, anime, tv, games, and even opening some packages. Thankfully, things are starting to calm down now and the only thing I really need to worry about for the next few weeks are grad school applications.

You might notice a few new acquisitions in the picture above, if there’s anything you guys want to see a post on, just mention it in the comments. A free e-cookie to whoever can guess the number of figures visible (including “pets”). Anyone who can name all of them gets an e-cake ^.^

Now if you’ll excuse me, it’s time to catch up on some anime.

  1. I know it’s easy to say, but don’t overwork your self too much ;)

    So this is your desk, I’ve spotted the Amano Tooko nendoroid, she’s really nice when she is sitting on her chair :) and the box in the front on the left also catched my interest, what is it?

    have fun by watching some anime =D

  2. I’m guessing 58 including 4 in the boxes? May have miscounted or missed a few.

  5. @Fabienne:
    The box is from Dengeki G’s Festival vol. 18, I’ll do a review of its contents soon.

    @Yi:
    Close, I’ll tell everyone the answer next week.

    @Ari:
    They actually aren’t that heavy, so there’s no worry about the shelf collapsing.

    @alucard13mm:
    Make sure to give yourself lots of time if you plan to study for the GRE.

  6. Man I’m totally snowed under with work at the moment as well – my desk looks about the same as your right now. What’s really annoying is we got a deadline extension, that means I’ve got another week of this crazy schedule making sure I’ve got everything done. Two more weeks and I should be clear :lol:.

    Temp work in a lab sounds cool. Will you have a project to carry out while you’re there?

    I spy a prinny and some RAM modules :O. 7.1 SS or 5.1?

  8. @BioToxic:
    There always seems to be a mountain of work around this time of year. I hope you can get it all done.

    I’ll be working on a project with another student, nothing on my own for now. Those are 5.1 SS speakers. I’d like to have 7.1, but I wouldn’t have any place to put all of them.

    @dreaming Artemis:
    Yep, both set 2 and set 3. Still need to get around to opening them.

  9. So for anyone wondering, there are 54 figures in the photo.
