something to look forward to...
My guy just reminded me that if all goes well and we both pass our dissertation defense in early May (oh my god that is going to be the bestest feeling in the world!! but not counting my chickens yet), we're both going to be without a salary for May-June. Ok, a graduate student salary is not much in the first place, but between the two of us it is quite alot of ground to make up, and we still need to pay our rent and have a wedding.
So, I was like, don't worry, i'll make lots of jewelry, and he gave me a look like, yah, since when have you made money from jewelry... which is kinda true since I buy wayy to much supplies and I currently have alot of overhead from my advertising and PR efforts, but I really think that if I stopped buying supplies and tripled my design output I could probably at least do enough to pay the rent!
So, I'm kind of excited now, designing really has been something I do when I needed to take a break from work, or when I feel a burst of inspiration. I haven't yet tried to do it full time, and I honestly don't know if I will have a chance to try it in future. I love science and I think I want to do it seriously for the rest of my life, but I feel like a month or two would be a really nice time for me to try something else seriously, give it my all, and see how it goes.
Pretty exciting, and one more thing to look forward to!! I can't wait for May.
