Hi again Bees!
I’ve been gone for a few weeks because I was on a 2-week field study trip over school break, and before that everything was bonkers, so I’d forced myself away from WBee. Not that things aren’t crazy busy now, but I have a fun thing to report. 🙂
The day I got back to my apartment after the trip, my SO came to visit me (our home is 3 hours away). I had recently ordered a right-hand ring off of Etsy, which I had been pretty excited about– I told him all about it. Well, it came while I was away, so at some point while he was here I showed it to him. It’s kind of bigger and fancier than I had thought it would be. . . but I love it. He seemed surprised at its size and the relatively complex design. He took it to admire it, and out of nowhere said, “how big is the stone?” I told him– 6 mm– and he wanted to know its size in carats too. I told him I didn’t know, and explained briefly about stone width, depth, carat weight. There was a pause (may I presume to call it a loaded pause?) and I think I giggled, he said, “What??” (as in, “what are you laughing about, I think I know what you’re thinking!”) I said it back to him, and that was that.
He MUST have rings on his mind still. Exciting!
Oh, and pictures of my lovely citrine RHR that was my (delayed) present to myself for getting into grad school: (ETA: the camera distorted some of my fingers– they look a lot fatter and weirder than they do in real life!!)
