Friday reset, busy week update

I think I just had one of the busiest weeks in my entire university career since I got accepted to university in 2009. Two new classess started this weeks which literally means 10 additional working hours in my weekly schedule. As much as ten is not a huge number itself, it turns out to be huge when it refers to working-studying hours. It was really crazy time since Monday, lots of opening tests for those new classes plus weekly tests for classes that run on regular routine since day 1 of this academic year. After spending this much time at chemistry department I feel kind of brain scattered, need a day or two to put all my puzzle pieces back together!

One very important thing happened this week. We had a meeting with different professors regarding our master degree projects (it’s 1,5 year until we present them but you have to make a decision now!). Yesterday I was informed that I got accepted for a master degree project to work with a professor I wanted to cooperate with. The topic is not decided yet but the main theme for my project will be perfume. There’s a chance I will be analyzing chemical processes behind perfume turning bad or I will be researching molecules such as Iso E-Super. I’m pretty excited!

Now I need a good cup of tea and some relax. I’m gonna keep up my best working quality until the very end. And December starts soon, which means time for a new perfume is drawing near. Would you like to help me chose a new scent? And one more thing – my fellow American friends, did you have a happy Thanksgiving? I hope so! Talk to you soon!

  1. For your December bottle you should think about Nuit de Noel or one of the Smell Bent Christmas range.

    Hello Lucas, I am glad things are going really well for you. And how exciting it is that you can choose perfumery for your project!

    My Thanksgiving celebration was very nice…I had a good combination of being with family and with family AND friends. It could get overwhelming sometimes with just all family.

    Today, I went shopping at the mall. I did my exercise by walking there and back. I did not even try for the Early specials because I decided to sleep in. I ended up getting 30mLs of Alien EDP with my $20 off of $40 coupon — I looked around but Lord & Taylor’s in-store selection is not very extensive but I couldn’t pass up using the coupon.

    Oh and did I tell you I got my Parfum d’ Empire Discovery Set? I have not tried any yet (except for the Azemour for which I already had a sample from LuckyScent). Perhaps I will try Cuir Ottoman this weekend to see what got you excited about it.

    Make sure you squeeze in a little time for yourself here and there.

    I vote for Cuir Ottoman! (love it – both on me and my vSO)

    I wish you luck with your busy schedule. You’ll figure out how to handle it once it becomes a routine.

    Thanksgiving this year was just great: I’ve got to eat great food, meet friends (including a perfumista friend from another city) and even to shop (though not for perfumes and only online).

    A million congrats on your perfume project! Couldn’t be happier for you and I know you’ll do something very interesting with this opportunity. Enjoy your new bottle (are you going to tell everyone what you bought?)!
