It’s been quiet here – fear not, I haven’t abandoned my blog! *cough* Basically, uni was whooping my ass and making my life hell – but that’s always a given so I have no excuses, really. I’ve had plenty of time to blog during last month because I was on a month break from uni. I’ve been trying to savour it because it was my last holiday forever.
Well, not really, but after this semester of uni, I will be jumping into full-time work and no longer a student. Something that I’m going to miss, despite how much I complain about it. Because truth be told, the hours aren’t too bad and the freedom is great 😀
I’m not looking forward to my intern year as a pharmacy graduate because it’s basically more studying. How pharmacy works over here is that you do four years at uni, then a year working as an intern before sitting a written and oral exam. The oral exam scares me – I’m tested in front of a Board of Health Professionals…intimidating, indeed!
So what happened in the months that I didn’t blog? Well here’s a summary:
- Uni, uni, uni, of course (= no life).
- I passed all my exams (thank God!) with a high distinction average – that was a shocker!
- I turned 21, oh yeah!
- I went to Singapore – which was simply amazing!
- New layout + changed the music, woot! Nice and simple! Oh and this layout is responsive as well, yay!
Yeah, so you guys didn’t really miss out on much 😀 How has everyone else been? I gotta go stalk your blogs 🙂
Happy birthday (21’s big here, but I don’t think it’s much so there?), congrats on the exams, and good luck with your last year!!
Here, we have to go to pharmacy school AFTER 4 years of initial university, so my friends start out where I guess you started out after college at 20 or 21. The medical school system here’s pretty much time-wasteful.
4-year university plus 1-year internship sounds about right. You might not like it, but having a good sense of what you’ll be doing for the rest of your life is good. I wish you the best of luck this year and on the upcoming exam. Keep that higher goal in mind and you’ll make it through in no time. 🙂
A belated Happy Birthday to you! I hope you had a good one. Good job passing your past exams. If you have time, please do tell us all about your times in Singapore. I want to hear all about it. 😀 Great layout too BTW. Seems like you had a productive month. Keep up the good work!
Happy belated birthday, Misaki! This is my first time visiting your blog, and your new layout is so simple and lovely at the same time. Congrats on passing all your exams, and I hope you have a great summer! 😀
My sister almost took the same route you did, but she’s now doing Chemical Engineering at uni.
It takes ages to get places in medicine, doesn’t it? For a while I was considering being a psychiatrist but you have to do a degree in medicine and then psychiatry and the whole thing was just so long. Plus the sciences aren’t really my strongest subjects.
Wow! Congratulations on those exam results! They’re brilliant. And happy unbirthday for today. 😉
I’m on my last holiday before A Levels and trying to savour it too, except it’s not really working. 😛
Oral exams are so hard. With a written paper it’s so easy to amend your mistakes or re-read the question or just check you have everything you need, but with orals it’s not. I took French for GCSE (and am for AS, fuck my life) and the oral exams were the worst.
Take care! xx
The scenery certainly makes you feel like you’re in a film, haha. Just for a moment. And then you just realise you’re tired and want to die and, yeah. 😛
There’s a really crappy park in my village, but the council were idiots and built it at the edge of the sports field which is along this really narrow road that cars whiz down all the time at top-speed. Plus it’s built for kids under nine. So I mainly just use the sports field. 😛
Yep. Well, now you know — don’t move to a village. 😉
Take care! xx
Happy belated birthday Misaki! Yes it’s been a long time. I missed you! It does seem like school takes over your life, though it’s still something to be missed. I miss it as someone who has been working for a while. But work life is good too in that there is no homework and no exams. Well you will have exams after your internship I guess. Good luck with your studies while working!
