Why, hello there!

16th October 2013 4 comments

I haven’t been feeling entirely myself these past few weeks, which was why I avoided blogging. Remember the decision I was talking about in the previous post? Basically, things got extremely messed up. For the last weeks, my life was basically like a drama series – betrayal and a heavy dose of angst all round. There was a period in which I didn’t even know if I had an intern position anymore. That was the worst, being in limbo.

Bottom line though, things have settled down and I do have an intern position at the old pharmacy so I’m really happy to have that part of my life done with 😀

Assignments and exams draw near – bringing a wide range of emotions: stress, determinedness and nostalgia. Stress’ a natural emotion, as long as I manage to keep it to a healthy amount of stress 🙂 I’m pretty much a procrastinator but I don’t think I am as bad as some people I know. I remember my friend had not touched a single lecture of any of our units and basically crammed 48 hours before the exam…I don’t think I would be able to do that to myself. But nostalgia for this means that the semester is drawing to an end and I’ll graduate from university and move to full-time work…not looking forward to it because yeah I’m a lazy bum 😀

NanoWrimo

Is anyone participating on the NanoWrimo this year? I’ve always wanted to participate but unfortunately, November has always been ‘exam month’ with finals scattered throughout. I’m going to see if I can do it this year though, so if anyone’s participating, let’s cheer each other on, yeah? 🙂

    I’m glad you (still?) have your intern position! Being in limbo is definitely the worst, I agree.

    Ugh, work. I’m either really good at procrastinating or I don’t do it… that is, I either leave everything to the last minute or do it all when I get it. ;w;

    I’ve been meaning to do NaNoWrimo for ages too. Maybe I should do it. Need to come up with a good idea, though, obviously!

    Take care! xx

    Yay for things settling down. Life can be all kinds of crazy one minute, and then everything’s fine and dandy. Stressful stuff, man! I want to wish you a great NaNoWriMo! If you win, you can have two free copies of your book published via CreateSpace. I don’t know if they’re overseas-compatible too…but that would be soooo cool. I want to do this. I’d have a book that has a poem of mine in it, and then a novel. Life, complete!

    Congrats on the internship! Haha, it seems like everyone’s approaching the exams period of some sort. It’s good to be concerned, but be good to your body too! I’m saying this because I think I’m getting sick. Good thing it’s after the midterms for me, but I should recover soon…>.<

    congrats on settling down for the intern and of course, good luck with that. life is always feeding on dramas, doesn’t it… sigh. nevertheless, i’m glad you’re back to blogging though it may not be as frequent but you came back to write and that’s really nice to see 😀

    psst, maybe watch more tv series to avoid dealing with the heavy real life dramas and angst 😉 …which reminds me how i can’t wait for the new elementary and bbc sherlock. (i forgot…but you DO watch them, yeah?)

    i’ve always wanted to participate in nanowrimo but i’m not confident enough to do that. besides, i get all lazy and distracted when writing chaptered stuff. i FEEL like i want to write chaptered stuff for nanowrimo but i knew i’m gonna stop halfway, blah. then again it all comes back to my lack of confidence… heck, i haven’t even touched my lonely abandoned writing site since august! i’m so lazy it’s ridiculous =_=;;

    even though i know nanowrimo is basically there to improve and help your writing regardless of how bad or good it is…still, haha i’m so embarrassed despite people telling me to go for it TvT i’m hopeless pessimist lol jk

    then again, november is also my mid term week TT__TT haha
