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.

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

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

    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.
