Discouraged.

I thought my week couldn’t get any worse than having to quit my job yesterday. I was wrong! There are always things to prove me wrong, I guess I should’ve kept a more open mind to the idea that, yes, this week can get much worse. Although I could keep it in perspective that none of my family has died, I have a roof over my head and food to eat… but FUCK. All of the research I did for an ethnography class, for almost a year, has to be thrown out because of the IRB’s ruling that it was research for educational purposes so it can’t retroactively be approved or even used because no one learning how to do research knows what they’re doing, apparently? So this teacher who I thought was steering me in the right direction and encouraging me to continue with my research really steered me into a dead end that I cannot crawl my way out of. I have to throw out all of my research. ALL OF IT. Every bit of data, my written up ethnography… it’s trash. All those hours I spent talking to the kids, extrapolating data. I am so sad.

I am in mourning. I can’t even begin to explain how angry and frustrated I am, but really at myself for trusting another human being to give me correct information about something I’m interested in and am relying on. Never again. I just cannot trust people anymore… I can’t even trust myself to double check people. It seemed too good to be true. I feel like crying and punching things. This is the worst day to be an anthropologist. I feel like a failure. I want to quit.

That’s what I thought, too! I like that it’s not super fancy because then I can wear it later on without feeling super fancy, just a normal dress I could wear and dress up for the wedding. Is that a thing?

I am a minor role in a full-mass catholic wedding during this summer in Tennessee. I am looking for a dress that will look nice with a cardigan and one that I can wear casually after the wedding. I also want something really breezy since I’m guessing it will be 100+ degrees and 100% humidity. Please assist.
