Monthly Digest: 2013 September

September is the craziest month so far this year. It was insanely hectic, i attempted to do a small project for the blog through the special 3-part series of Fashion and Films thoughts out loud articles on the blog, but my real life actually have a more significant event: I finally finished my master thesis! Yay me! So after my thesis defense at the last week of the month, i still could not rest my brain because i need to revised the manuscript, write a paper to be published in a journal, etc before i can graduate. Now everything is done right on the cusp of the deadline and i’m going to graduate in October :) Of course, the question (and panic) of getting a real job is hovering in my brain, but i have to put that aside for now. Instead, let’s recap what happened in the last 30 days at KaramelKinema.
