Back For Real

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! <3

Oh how ironic was my previous post? Back to blogging? Definitely not. Well I am now going to try. I want to change the direction of my blog slightly – not that it had a direction beforehand – but I want to talk about things that matter to me. That’ll be: pharmacy (unfortunately), web-design, technology…just geeky stuff. Oh and books. Glorious books! I might have touched on those briefly but I never really went into detail because I worried that people won’t be interested. But in turns out that blogging about my life is strangely monotonous because man, am I such a thrill seeker? *cough*.

And a new theme which will be here to stay for a while, hopefully! The previous theme lasted a measly one post before Sky-Song went into hibernation. Hover on the heart, it’s a nifty trick that I’ve learnt 😀 And there’s very mellow, sleep-inducing music that you can play with the music player.

So what has happened in the few months that I have gone?

  • I went to Queensland for a week with my friends

Queensland

It was definitely a fun trip and I practically bathed in sunscreen to prevent myself from tanning 😀 My colouration is not so Vietnamese that I get mistaken as a Filipino or it’s something about my features (my sister likes to attribute it to my big eyes, but I still have no idea). I darken very easily so in lieu with my pharmacy knowledge about the SPF and how much sunscreen is actually required, I armed myself with liters of suncreen.

Above is an image of the place we were staying 🙂

  • I passed 3rd year Pharmacy and am progressing into 4th this year.

HOLY SMOKES I AM OLD!! My last uni year before registration year (intern/graduate year). It’s scary and I have lots of decisions to make. I’m not sure if I want to do my registration year with work because…

  • I’ve gotten a new manager at work – so far I dislike him.

More like I want to punch him. He needs to learn his people skills – you don’t just go up to someone and say ‘you guys are shit, I need to train you more’ (he said that to my friend in front of everyone, and inferred it for the rest of us). He also needs to learn how to smile – he smiles to the customers etc. but then when he turns to talk to the staff members, he seems extremely cold.

  • Purchased a Nexus 7 32GB 3G

Purchased it on Tuesday! 🙂 I’ve been eyeing it for months and kept waiting to see if the price would decrease. Eventually, I just gave up and went what the heck? Might as well splurge once in a while. I’m absolutely loving it so far. I had been deciding between it and the Nexus 10 version but I’m glad I settled for the Nexus 7 – it’s much easier to hold and more portable 🙂

Back to Blogging (…probably)

2nd October 2012 10 comments

Whoa, when was it the last time I blogged? It’s a vicious cycle I suppose. So my explanation really is – exams and uni. Yeah, enough said 🙂 That being said, I will probably disappear again as this semester is jam packed with stress 🙂

But as per usual as well – each time I disappear and then pitifully attempt to revive my blog, I also create a new theme. Ta da~ Shocking not cyan but with lots of colours which is pretty much my favourite colour scheme as well. Nothing ground-breaking again but I think I’m more a minimalistic designer. It definitely looks better on Google Chrome and resolutions 1368 x 768 and higher~

Back to uni talk (yay?!)

I have mentioned before that this year, my pharmacy course is a little different right? Basically what normally happens is that in a semester (13 weeks) we have four final exams for the four units that we’ve studied.

However 3rd year pharmacy is a little different in that this is what happens – in one semester, it gets divided into two (i.e. 6 weeks). And instead of studying all four units at the same time, we study two for those six weeks, then have our final exams. And the process repeats again for the second half of the semester. It’s a painful, grueling process as it’s constant studying for final exams.

I’ve already done two exams this semester and we’re starting the second half of this one. But this time, we’re going to have four exams as well. One including OSCE.

The dreaded OSCE.

I don’t even remember what is stands for but basically it’s a 30 minute oral examination with 3 stations – a doctor, pharmacist and patient. And each station, you get quizzed in scenarios relevant to the profession. It’s scary because it examines everything that I’ve learnt this year and that’s about over 500 drugs, along with interactions etc.

As you can tell, I have no life apart from pharmacy lol. Sorry it’s been just pharmacy for the last month or so as I crammed for my exams. The glamorous life of a uni student 🙂

Hopefully a more interesting blog next time 🙂 I’m going to return comments now <3
