I had my morning cup of Irish Cream Breakfast, but I didn’t write a note for it. I didn’t bring tea to school today, so now I’ve arrived home and I’m making a resteep of Japon with 1/2 tsp. of Cacao for a little extra oomph.

My stepdad called me today to invite my to Jamaica from March 28-April 3! I was so excited, then it hit me I present my conservation poster to the department March 28. And I have a psychology presentation April 3. Of course. I plan on speaking with both profs tomorrow to see if I can’t present a day or two early. What do you guys think?

Lala

Certainly worth talking to them about it? You wouldn’t want to ask and miss out on the vaca when you could have potentially gone.

Courtney

That’s what I figured too Lala. I feel like if I ask to present early rather than late it won’t look like I’m just trying to get an extension. I don’t think the department presentation will go over, but it won’t hurt to ask.

Suziqzer

Maybe you can arrange flights so you can still go, just different flights. ? I’d hate to miss a trip like that if there was a chance you could make it work

Courtney

I asked my parents that but it’s a coordinated group vacation thing. In fact, they’re even flying me home to fly out from there versus the city I’m in, because apparently that’s how it has to work.

I don’t think anyone would fault you for wanting to present early if it’s possible to do so. If the March 28 one can’t be pushed up maybe you could meet them down there? I know you said it’s a coordinated thing so it might cost more to do that but it sounds like it might be worth the additional cost (within reason) to get to go as family thing.

Courtney

If I can even have the April 3 one moved, I would absolutely do that Morgana. I have a feeling that’s what will happen. My mom said it would be difficult, but I think we can all pull a few strings. :P

Courtney

It’s all I can focus on tonight, rather than what I should be doing haha!

Hopefully you can work it all out – a trip to Jamaica would be fantastic!

OMGsrsly

Fingers crossed! That sounds like an amazing opportunity.

I went to Jamaica once. Somewhere around here there is a pic of me with my entire head done in tiny braids. I left it in for the rest of the cruise.

Courtney

That’s awesome Terri! When we went to Dominican I had my whole head done in wee braids. With beads haha.

Terri HarpLady

yup, I had the beads too! It was great! I didn’t have to detangle my hair for almost a week, but then the rude awakening happened when it was time to take out the braids…my hair is very long…it took a very long time…

Stephanie

Oh man, beach vacation! That will be a blast!!!

I really hope they would let you work around this! It’s so annoying to miss a vacation because of school. Ultimately, life’s too short.

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
