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 🙂
Freedom! (Party Time ♫)
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 🙂
