Princess Skirt - Day 5
This is the first time I've ventured out of the apartment since the snow stuck (that was only Wednesday). I'm not sure why I decided to go with a dress - it's also the coldest day we've had this winter (oh, I've declared it winter. As soon as the snow hits and sticks, it becomes winter... I'm convinced it's not going to melt again).It's hard to believe that just last Sunday it was 18 degress Celsius and now it is -12 degrees Celsius (that's 64 and 10 respectively, in Fahrenheit). Crazy Canada.
I met with my adviser today on my first chapter of my thesis. I was apprehensive, because I really felt like I was juggling too many balls in such a short space of pages, but she was very impressed with how well I did... I managed to keep all but one "ball" up in the air. Of course, the one I forgot was kind of the central argument which will over-arc my thesis, but it's a relatively easy fix.
Oh ya, the outfit: Scott doesn't like the scarf I chose. He said it was too much colour. I do have a solid brown one I contemplated using, but I felt it would just encourage my reliance on solid colours, and my fear of patterns. I do need a belt with it - the dress looks much more "I'm a 6 year old," especially with the poofy skirt underneath without some way to break up the line. Thoughts?
