23: will you pass on this survey?:
No need to pass -- people will probably drop by my blog and answer this on their own ^_^

I find it difficult to express all that I am feeling -- I'm happy, but happy does not even begin to describe me right now. People have mentioned that I'm glowing; that there's something "new" (B even took a picture of me, claiming it's the "new" me) -- I don't quite know what they see, but I know why they see it --

I love my J; I'm in love with my J -- when I see the picture of us, I can't help but smile = stress reliever! (not that I've been experiencing stress lately ^_^). It's an amazing thing -- feeling this for someone (I didn't think I was capable of it --) and to know that someone feels it for you.

Everything is falling into place -- and it's such a wonderful sight to see (and I'm glad I get to see this). ^_^

We had dinner the other night with my cousins -- and it was so much fun! My cousins had recently acquired this and J and I played a game of Wishi Washi (basically, the entire television screen is a dirty window and we used our hands to clean it -- the faster you do it, the more windows you clean and the higher your score is = perfect game for an OC person like me ^_^)

We introduced him to my niece and she wasn't scared of him (a good thing ^_^) -- I think she would have let him hold her if he only knew how ^_^

I told J that I wish there was a way to capture that moment -- us sitting there in my cousins' room while my cousins were doing silly things with the Eye Toy, and my other cousin was trying to convince our niece to pose and smile with her for a picture. Nothing really spectacular happened, but it was this general feeling of ease that made the evening so special. ^_^

In thesis news --

I've started re-immersing myself in my thesis. Erg. Boring stuff really. =P

Am planning to defend my thesis proposal this coming June or July, so I have to find a mentor and a panel. I want to graduate next March, which means that I have to defend my thesis (5 of the 6 chapters haven't been written yet ^_^) this December. ~sigh~
