Hi all, happy candy day!
Today I'm finally back with day F of the ABC Challenge and I've chosen a semi-untried, Revlon's Facets of Fuchsia! This polished caused a big hooha when it came out due to it being fantastic and glittery in a time when indies were practically non-existent. Thankfully, Revlon heard our cries and it is now a permanent core shade and was renamed 'Scandalous (but since my bottle is Facets of Fuchsia it totally counts for the challenge).
I'm showing one coat over black undies.
This was a semi untried because I wore it once last Halloween, to a dark nightclub where it got zero love and it hadn't been posted on here yet. Application was super easy and I love the simpleness of the glitters! It harkens back to a time before the 18,000 indie brands and glitter bombs.
Now, if you're at all interested in the crapmess my adviser got me into and why I've been gone for a week, click the Read More button below. Otherwise have a great day doing whatever you're going to do, whether it be celebrating valentine's day with a loved one, friends or not celebrating it at all!
I'm definitely condensing the story as much as I can so I don't bore anyone that might read this but I'm also just venting so sorry if it sounds rambly!
If you have a freakishly good memory, you might remember my saying that unfortunately I hadn't completed my requirements last semester and had to enroll this semester again (though I was happy to do it since I was getting in some research experience). Well, a couple of weeks ago, I received my graduation certification (like a preliminary diploma). Of course, my reaction was HUHWAT?! and promptly went to the school to figure out what this meant.
What it meant was that I indeed had completed my requirements last semester thanks to a class my adviser had recommended I take and was now no longer eligible for the grant money I was so desperately counting on and, depending who I talked to, now had to pay for this semester because the period for reimbursements had passed. Awesome. It also meant I couldn't use this semester to get my GPA up and was, basically, a little screwed.
Thankfully, I have now spoken with different offices and it should be ok, I do have to give the grant money back but I won't have to pay for the semester and I can (hopefully) reach an agreement with the professor of one of my classes so I can remove an F I had on my transcript and bump up my GPA, though the GPA I graduated with won't change at all.
So, all this rambling to say I officially completed my bachelor's degree in Psychology! A small victory seeing as I have about 6 more years of school left, but a great feeling all the same.
Also, I graduated Cum Laude! If I had finished the semester I could have been Magna Cum Laude which is incredibly infuriating and disappointing but I've given up and am just happy to be out of that mess of a school (it's a great school academically, just hopelessly unorganized).
If you read this you're seriously awesome and thank you <3.
