The chain routine

Been waiting to write this since a week ago; now that today’s came, let’s see what’s left to be posted about.

The very 1st pro exam was over since 2 weeks ago and for the results, Alhamdulillah all went okay for me. Congrats to all colleagues for your excellent results, and for the unfortunate ones, He definitely has better plan for you.

Along this week was our university and course-compulsory subjects; 5 overall within 5 days.

The best thing having these subjects after our core papers was it doesn’t bug the study week, but what’s worrying is when heart has gone wandering for vacation; nights became loosen up without coffee, filled with k-dramas, playing games. Anyways all done and I believe people’d done their best.

Now that exam’s over, only one word; HOLIDAY!

It’s great this time around having non-jokingly long semester break; 4 months. Just when I thought our end-year-one break last time was the longest (2 months), so record broken and this is going to be the longest break for the history of our inshaAllah 6 years study. Guess it’s going to be 17 again part 2.

Commercial break

One fine day…

Uncle: Oh the weather today is so hot ah…bla..bla…need to drink more water…bla…bla
Me: yeah it is…bla…bla…skin dry…bla…complexion…bla…bla…bla
Uncle: eh you’re still studying ah? Where? Bla…bla…holidays…bla…how long?
Me: bla…bla…bla…6 years…bla
Uncle: wah! 6 years ah? God bless you~

God bless you
Got this quite a lot these days, may Allah bless.

Move on. Here’s a riddle, what’s a transition interval between after exam and holidays? It’s called packing time (I call it the chain routine; exam-packing-holidays axis) and for the nth time (n>100) I think I’ve got packaphobia.

Anyways I’ve got a shortlist waiting for my own delicate anticipation;

1. Overcoming the packaphobia
2. After exam shopping with Sis Addie tomorrow!
3. The post-exam trip

This post-exam trip, we validate it as some girly time spent together before each long holiday and it’s going to be our annual event! Last time we went here, and this time we had plan it carefully to go to…… oh well, I might just post one whole entry about this later, please anticipate (winks)

Thinking in advance, what to do at home? One prior thing I reserved my mindset for is to lose some weight. I gained weight? Might not seem one but seriously I’m much ‘stuffy’ than I was 2 years ago. So having a strict diet along with some exercise is definitely what my mum would recommend; the price you have to pay if you’re mum was once major in PE.

Ps: For this coming post exam trip, the theme is still water park which answers the reason why (in case you’re wondering) the sudden trial of my housemates getting contact lens.

Pss: in my 20 years living, it was the first time having a non-‘examic’ announcement made in the exam hall. Dude~ anyways still, it was a good thing.

Let's go shopping! :D

This is going to be so sudden, believe me I know.
But I'm just too excited to tell!

My housemates are wearing contact lens for the first time!

Okay here's the tip;

1. Don't get too distracted by the corneal reflex so much
2. Just hang in there.
3. Look straight, it's going to be fast
4. Tap your fingertip onto your iris and there, the time to blink will come again.
5. Seriously, just don't blink beforehand :D

Yay! You girls made it!

Next, it's going to be a little awkward spec-less for this next 4 hours but it'll go away soon. Seeing just as clear, plus dimension not bounded by the frame; you'll love the lens in no time! Hehe

Ps: I just meant to give some moral support for these first-timers. But honestly having someone so close to your face when you're right in front of the mirror is freaky!

Of solitude and invisibility

I once asked her

"why are you alone?"

I can’t fit in
I’m being myself
I need personal space
I’m less loud than the other
I’m living up the image of being independent
I’m still grasping my own pace
I’m self-reflecting
I’m invisible

Which one is you?

The acceptance

Some people are just annoying in nature

Annoying in a cute way
Annoying in thought-it-is a cute way
Annoying in a not cute way at all!

Any of them

Being able to be so and still surrounded by people
It sure is a skill
Being able to be so and still be the center of attraction
It sure is a gift

The acceptance is uncertain though
1. The attracted ones are too good to avoid
2. The attracted ones are the bff
3. The attracted ones are amused by it
4. The attracted ones might as well thought him/her as a clown

The guts of being such and dare to sort it as charm
The guts of being such and insisting a personality
The guts of being such and still accepted
The guts of being such and not seem stupid

Not seem stupid?
Ahh~ the irony…

Hell with the ‘gift’, annoying is still annoying

It was then when I know

It was then when I know those

Who prefers to make only half a packet coffee at a time
Who turns extra talkative and hyperactive at 2 in the morning
Who rope-skips to stay awake
Who plays solitaire under stress
Who composes rhymes for mnemonics
Who believes consolidation for longer term memories

Who are willing to be there for me

These people are around me, always, but little that I notice them. Thanks to the exams that I do.

Alert! Results on the way!

Takers, anyone?

Instead of saying ~okaeri~ to dear readers, I should say ~tadaima~ on the other hand.

On hiatus on behalf of pro exam; 2 subjects done and another one coming this Monday and Tuesday.

Like all my colleagues said, 2 years-worth lectures are squeezed into a merely 2-hour papers answering. Pressure built up, nerves, miserable, mixed feelings piled up; it’s just too tired emotionally.

Don’t worry, don’t worry –I’m fine, thanks-

Place setting: Girls recreational room
Time setting: half an hour before Physiology OSPE exam (April 14)
Atmosphere setting: topsy-turvy and upside down discussing lab practicals

Me: where’s my eraser?! Oh! My eraser has gone missing!

Dear cute little blue eraser has gone missing. Uh~ in critical time like this even small, small things are damned mattering!

1. It’s blue
2. It’s missing

I remember once I told a friend “up until this point of my life, my ex-erasers had always gone missing in action before they were fully utilized”

Crap! Such a waste~

So now the action of holding on to a single eraser till its last pieces seemed a bit too challenging than most people might give it credit for. Having said this, being able to so do perhaps is quite an achievement, no?

This one over here looks nice

Takers*, anyone?

Ps: *Takers (read: those who’re interested buying them for me)
Pss: tak mahal, RM35 tak masuk shipping cost, all the way from Japan

1. It’s blue
2. It’s a heel
3. It’s made in Japan

Psss: oh, anyways~
