2015 was a year of well, it was an interesting year.

See, I took a semester off because sharing a room in 2014 was very stressful. They say you never really know your friend till you live with them and were they right or what. I didn’t eat well, I didn’t sleep well, and oh the drama. That and my grades were never good because I hate studying to be honest, and because of that, I had to extend my studies.

So when I went back to school July of 2015, I kinda missed my friends so I went to dinner at their place and there, I met my current boyfriend.

I’m not trying to say that one should be lazy and get bad grades or fail but life works in a way you never expect it. If I had passed every one of my modules, I would have graduated and never met this wonderful (kinda dorky too) guy.

Sure, it was hard when you see all your friends graduating and you’re the only one remaining in place but I believe that you haven’t failed until you give up and I, have not given up.

I still want to be a researcher, and work in a lab. Sucks that I need my GPA to prove that I am worthy to even be trained in the job.

Anyhow, here’s to 2016 (16 days late but better late than never). May it be an even more fulfilling year.

Pain everywhere.
Feels like I’m swallowing glass.

What started as a simple “Oh I think I might be getting a sore throat” ended up with me crying at night in bed.

Quite paradoxical if you think of it. See, tonsils are inflamed which means swallowing hurts. Not swallowing equates to dry throat and what happens when you have a dry throat? You cough and produce saliva and swallow which brings up back to swallowing and everything hurts.

I couldn’t sleep at night and so I was just exhusted. Hungry too but can’t eat because the pain was too much.

Dad tried to get numbing sprays for me but he decided to call me on the phone and ask what type I want when I can’t even speak. Ended up with throat gargle but I think it didn’t reach down far enough because my tongue was numb but the pain was still there.

Also, if I didn’t insist on going to the doctors, I wouldn’t have found out it was acute tonsillitis. Asian parent logic was “It’s not biggie, just drink more herbal tea” but me, being the science student I am, found white spots on my tonsils and immediately knew that was not a sore throat. Main point is, it could have been worse (even though I’m not sure how it could actually be worse because the antibiotics didn’t kick in till 2 days later)

April 14th, 2014

In two days, I caught up on 40 plus episodes of Fairy Tail while waiting for Nisekoi ep 14 to be released. Little did I know that Fairy Tale season 2 started on 5th April this year so imagine my surprise when I got to carry on watching without going through a hiatus meltdown of sorts (like what Sherlock did to me).

But I’m not sure if I like this arc. . _ .

I’m dreading the whole going back to the past and changing history. It WILL change the future and some of the arcs that happened won’t happen in their ‘new’ future and I DON’T LIKE IT.

This is seriously making me wanna read the manga and spoil it for myself so I don’t have to wait a week for a 24 minute episode

Edit : //
I READ IT. HA.

AND I ARE PLEASED (And and really excited for the anime. Now I have something to look forward to weekly together with Game of Thrones and Running Man!)

Guess I’d be spending my Easter break on anime since most of the drama series I’m watching are on hiatus + some neuroscience revision. The previous exam told me that if I don’t study harder for it, I’ll be seeing it again next year . v .

-le sigh-

Goodbye braces!

March 13th 2012 – February 10th 2014

I got my braces removed. Ouch. My friend told me it wouldn’t hurt but it did for my front teeth when the dentist removed it. Either way, goodbye to having food bits stuck between wires because that really was no fun.

And hello purple retainers and lovely smile. You both look weirder than what I’ve imagined at first glance. Heh.

After feeling rough surfaces for so long, I thought there was a layer of wax when I ran my tongue over my teeth for the first time. It was just…so smooth like big white flat surfaces of sorts. Anyway, eating was a bit difficult because I somehow felt that my teeth are weaker without metal supporting it so I got a wee bit paranoid but I guess that’s kinda normal. Afterall, part of your teeth was shielded from icy cold water and hot soup. (Or maybe I just have sensitive teeth)

So here’s to a few months of retainers and mispronunciation which honestly quite funny.
Cheers! ^o^

February 6th, 2014

I’ve picked up reading again and even though I’ve said about a million times that I don’t like ebooks, I have to admit they are hella convenient . _ .

No need to worry if the book you want has been borrowed or if some stupid kid accidentally spilled orange juice over certain pages or if there are missing pages etc etc (Though my ipad doesn’t have the smell of paper or the sound of the book spine cracking but hey, I’m not complaining.)

I’ve forgotten how nice it is to read, to be able to step into another world/someone else’s shoes while the hours tick by. (Wonder why I’ve stopped reading in the first place.) In fact, some books makes me feel like I’ve seen more as compared to watching a movie while some books make me wanna start writing or roleplaying on gaia again even though good RPs are really hard to find as I recall. I gave up because half of it couldn’t stop complaining about how they don’t want 500 word posts even though my 500 words has nothing to do with describing the floorboards or curtains.

I LIKE MY POSTS TO BE KINDA LONG AND I CANNOT LIE.

I like to write out how my character is feeling, what’s going through his/her mind but half the population there doesn’t appreciate it. The other half, to be fair, are pretty much amazing. (Just that the RPs are usually full or die pretty quickly)

Anyway, this is just an update to prove that I’m still alive and still prone to ranting as seen from the above.

Heh. Habits are hard to change I suppose.
