Freedom! (Party Time ♫)

27th June 2012 14 comments

Yeah, I disappeared for just a little bit 🙂 Exams. You get the drill.

But I’m done and you know what that means? Party time! ♫ Ah no, it’s more like ‘omg I’m freeeeee!’….’okay, there’s nothing to do T_T’.

On the day I finished my exams, I went to watch Brave. It was a toss up between that and Snow White and the Huntsman but I think after an exam, it’s nice watching something light and fluffy so we went with Brave.

I loved it! I mean it may not have been completely ground-breaking but it was funny, light, heartwarming and perfect for post-exam syndrome. It deals with ‘mother and daughter’ relationships and I think it’s the ‘female’ version of Finding Nemo. I enjoyed Merida as the protagonist – she’s a good strong heroine. I think it’s great that they finally portrayed a heroine who’s endgame is not (typo before! LOL) just to get married.

During my exam period, I also managed to pick up a nasty cold. Stress = lowered immune system. Doesn’t help that I work in a pharmacy and have all these people coming in and coughing. Some people actually don’t even cover their mouths when they cough and I have to stand there, counselling the patient about how to take the medicine without pulling a disgusted face as it’s not professional. The moment they’re gone, I’m running to get the hand sanitiser and disinfectant spray and pretty much use half the spray lol. I’m pretty good now, though I still have the sniffles here and there.

I’m going to tell myself that I’m going to make use of my one month holiday but I’m pretty sure I’ll just be bumming around at home 😀 I’m eyeing some books to engross myself with.

I was in the book store the other day and Jo Spurrier’s debut novel Winter Be My Shield caught my eye. She’s an Australian author (so like Bitter Greens, you probably won’t be able to find the book) but I checked out some reviews on Good Reads and the book seems interesting. High fantasy was one of my favourite genres growing up. Here’s a link to the Google Play Book. I’ll hopefully buy the book within a few days and keep you updated with how it is 🙂
