Here’s one of my pseudo-weekly blog entries again.
Not a lot of new exciting things to blog about though. My thesis is going ok. I finally classified the images and now have results. Now I “just” have to write down the results (I’m not good with the words – I’d rather just post 1000² pictures 😯 ) and perform the accuracy assessment. After I’ve completed that, I’ll apply myself to writing the summary and further implementation as well as the introduction and the abstract. I hope my proof-readers won’t find too many misleading paragraphs or errors :nervous:
I’ve talked to my professor and asked for an extension, which he approved on. I’m happy! I do want to get done ASAP (my actual due date is January 23rd – 4 days after my birthday), but it’s just calming to know I have a few extra week(s) to complete my work.
Well, something exciting did happen. I have a job! I’ve applied for it in the summer, the company I’m writing the thesis for was looking for a new employee in the GIS software developement department. I applied, told them my experience (very little php, very little Visual Basic, HTML, CSS, Adobe Photoshop) yet I also told them I’d be very interested in learning Java, Php, ASP… and a week later they said “We’d like you in our team” 😀 I was thrilled of course.
So, a few weeks ago two departments of the company and I sat together and talked about my application areas. And… I’ll work for two departments 🙂 Once for the GIS software development department as a webdesigner AND for the RADAR/SAR image processing department. I’m very excited and happy! The contract is printed, I’ll start February 1st, no matter if my thesis is done or not.
I actually wanted to start January 1st, BUT… if I would, I think my body and soul would EXPLODE!
It’s all very very awesome and I’m quite lucky! I want to start working! On the other side, I can’t wait to take a few days off. I’ll maybe take vacation in March (when I’m moving) or April (easter). I haven’t had vacation in years!
My Christmas presents are all bought and wrapped. I have this habit on getting the pressies very early in November. Less stress! I’ll put my brain in “creative mode” and think what for presents I can get. My parents get my contract of employment, my nephew some “CARS” stuff, my niece (the lover’s niece actually) gets a Hello Kitty purse (Hello Kitty is perverted expensive here in Germany, I almost shit my pants!) and something from Diddl. The Lover gets something too any my sisters as well. I’m not going to write what though, you never know who’s reading your blog 😉 I love packing, so all the wrapped presents are lying in front of my Christmas tree (aka my plant).
This month was the first month I spent money on myself as well. My Christmas presents for me are a Wall-E pencil case (which I don’t need, but sooo cute!), a cute planner and little purse from Etsy, a cute purple cardigan from H&M, a lovely scarf from Esprit and a pullover of my favorite band “Die Ärzte”. Oh, and I ordered some tummy-away-panties, too, because, I mean, why work on getting a flat tummy when you can just press the fat away :omg: Also if the things you buy don’t really make you happy for long, I’m very happy with my purchases because they’re all great. I haven’t bought anything for me in soo long, I almost have a guilty conscience that I bought so much… almost.
Tomorrow I have a training in DBMS and after that there’s a XMAS party at uni where I’ll have beer 🙂 Next week (Dec 18th and 19th) I have a few doctor’s appointments (you know, the docs you go to once or twice a year… dentist, gynecologist, orthodontist…) and the XMAS party of work.
The month of December will turn into a stressy one – but I’m happy and that’s what counts :winknudge:
How’s your December?
