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 🙂

New phone…

Exams in 1 week = time to cram. But as I said I wouldn’t completely abandon my blog and I have been trying to blog more frequently, yes? 🙂

So remember how I said that I wanted to get the Samsung Galaxy S3? I had told myself to wait then, for normally the price will decrease and the known bugs would be released but then, I decided to splurge the $720 AUD (which is practically the same in USD, I believe) for the phone. I needed a new phone anyways since my old one was really dying on me and suffice to say, I’m happy with this one 🙂 Normally, it would have been $800 AUD outright but there was a special so I decided to get it.

Some photos~ And please ignore my messy table, this is what happens when my exams approach. There’s so much clutter on my table 😐 Lecture notes everywhere.

 Boxing of Samsung Galaxy S III – with my messy table  🙂

Tada!~ Samsung Galaxy S III with a lovely backdrop of my table + lecture notes

Phone against my wall 😉

I’m really loving it 🙂 Much better than my old phone. The specs are really good, it’s amazingly fast and the screen is absolutely gorgeous.

That’s all really. Back to studying 🙁
