WHAT WERE YOUR ORIGINAL PLANS FOR THE WEEKEND AS OF FRIDAY AFTERNOON? DID ANY FALL THROUGH?
Unfortunately at this stage when I’m between the end of my summer job and waiting for school to begin, my weekend plans are usually composed of me finishing “whatever it is I was supposed to during the week but didn’t” … all of my plans fell through. At least it feels as though all of my plans fell through because they were so loose to begin with. I needed to get a lot of writing done for applications towards jobs, internships, fellowships, grad schools, etc. These things are so grand in design, however, that even when I accomplish one thing, such as a personal statement, it feels as if I haven’t made any progress because there are three more essays to complete. Then of course morale is lost and my personal statement for the next application turns into a personal letter of self-disappointment. It’s best to walk away at this point, I find.

HOW MUCH MONEY DID YOU SPEND?
I spent $10 this weekend. Big spender! It was on gas.
WERE YOU HAPPY WITH HOW YOUR WEEKEND TURNED OUT? WAS THERE ANYTHING YOU WISHED YOU DID?
ANY FUN PLANS FOR NEXT WEEKEND?
My mother is going away on holiday which means that I’ll get the house to myself! … I should probably take the time do some writing. This is usually the format of my future weekend planning: probablies.
YOUR RECOMMENDATION FOR THE BEST SPOT ON THE WEEKENDS?
The weather has been uber nice these past few days. I enjoy sitting on the porch with a cup of tea and a good book.
Anything you want to tell our readers?
I’m studying marine science and have presently been waste deep in research. I took time off of course to celebrate Shark Week. Readers, take the time to look at what people in marine science are doing for our oceans. Watch a documentary. I recommend Chasing Corals. Read an article. Check out MarineGeo.
