It has been 3 days since I handed in my last school-related piece of writing and it's weird. The prospect of not being a student anymore is somewhat unsettling. I mean, after undergrad, I knew for sure that grad school would follow and that it did, but now, unless I decided to jump off the deep-end and do law school, I will not be a student again - at least not in the traditional sense of professors and lectures and grades and transcripts. I guess it's unsettling because there's now more uncertainty in my life than ever.
So what now?
My brain is out-to-lunch. My mind is all over the place as well as being no where right now. It's a strange emptiness.
In random news: I snipped off the top leaves of my basil plant today. I think I wasn't doing it right (i.e. nurturing it to be bushy) so now it's just tall and quite UN-bushy.
Yes, that is a chopstick supporting it =p It was the only thing tall and skinny enough to act as an appropriate support. But anyway, as I was taking that photo, I inspected my plant a little closer and found THIS!
yay!! It looks like it's going to start branching!! You (I'm guessing you are my only reader, R.Z.) would not believe how worried I've been for my little plant! I'm going to miss it =( I think I will leave it with J.L. 'cause she said that she takes care of all the plants in her house so I have faith she'll work her green-thumb magic and make it super bushy by the time I see it next. I feel like this is my baby and I'm giving it up for adoption when I leave. I will only retain visitation rights. haha. Melodramatic? Maybe, but I've never grown something from seed before and I feel like this little plant has beat the odds, like little Nemo, 'cause it grew all awkward in its original pot and now it's super healthy! Except those two leaves at the bottom (the first leaves that sprouted) are still super stubby. Totally like Nemo's roughed up fin, eh?
OK, enough about my baby basil. *tear *
