there is always a day in a year when you can't wait to do the things you've been wanting to do...
Summer vacation is just around the corner and I just can't wait to sleep. Sleepless nights just for fun, seeing friends haven't seen for a while, being under the sun by the beach... *blinks rapidly*
Typing about summer is getting me depressed...
And speaking of depressed, I've been giving away my doggy's babies for the past week.
I had 5 of these tiny babies and I've found three families for three of the 5... can't decide about the last two, but I think I'm keeping them. ;)
They're fun to have around especially after a long day in medschool (extended dependence). :P
As of now, I own two flat top makeup brushes. The first one I purchased from Sophie&Christine of B&M (linked if interested). :) Th...
Why do I think these are awesome? 1. Lots and lots of colors! I say it like I have all the colors. Hahahaha. :P I just have 5 at the mo...
...over pretty drinks :) I met up with a friend I haven't seen in a very long time. ...and I freakin' passed my problem subject ...

the transition from the cold months to the warmer ones always results to
crazy weather = crazy skin
harder to deal with when you lose more and more time to things like:
1) watching Friends Season 1-10 (awesome show!)
2) having 5 cute puppies running around the house
or 3) trying to finish my thesis before March 8! Oh help me.
I've developed a major bad habit that gave me crazy skin:
sleeping with makeup on!!! NEVER EVER DO THIS!
I have amped up my skin regimen to start REJUVENATION right.
face wash >> scrub >> toner
I'm not a fan of Etude House but this is the first one I loved from the brand.
it says "Happy fresh foam witch hazel" so I was surprised when I used it and it had exfoliating granules in it
smell, packaging, cleansing = 100% Love!
This could close the deal for facewash>>scrub. :)
for those who use foam washes, this will be the tool for the scrub part
I've done a review on TheBodyShop face brush here.
Well, the Marionnaud one works the same way but with a better handle and cheaper than the other. Another Love! :D
I'm trying these stuff out as toners and I haven't loved one just yet.
The Korean ones (SkinFood avocado, Laneige) are less drying than the others (Pond's and WitchHazel) though.
Summer break's almost here which means I will be meeting friends and I wouldn't want to look like I've become a slob (which... OMG, I have to clean my room!)

"Make-up is my wig."
Looking back to my past few months, I've been trying to discipline myself to study.
I am very thankful that I stumbled upon the video of this amazing 12 year old. I remember I was searching for lectures on "neoplasia" (~related to cancer) and I eventually clicked one of her videos, which was her talking about cancer.
Talia Castellano was diagnosed with neuroblastoma five years ago. She has been through multiple treatments and procedures.
A few months ago, she did say that she was getting better but the latest video she posted says that she developed cancer in her bone marrow too. And as to prognosis, it's bad.
She vlogs that she has 4 months to a year left to live if she doesn't get a bone marrow transplant (which is risky too). She doesn't want to go through with it because she doesn't think it's worth the risk anymore and she'd rather go on living until her time runs out.
Instead of studying, I got hooked and continued to watch her videos.
She's very refreshing to watch. I don't really watch make-up tutorials because I think some of them are just fake but Talia's videos were very raw and real... I could sense how mature she was in handling herself and though she speaks of her disease frankly, she has time to actually joke and comfort her subscribers.
I don't know why I've been going through my life these past months like a blur while Talia lives her's like there's no tomorrow.
I've been trying to bury my nose in books for the past months since I got to my 2nd year in med school.
I still want to be a doctor.
I did not go to med school for prestige nor for money.
I went here in hopes to learn more in the art of helping people in the best way I can.
Though nobody ever believed me, I went to med school to be of service to the community (which was well ingrained into me during my undergraduate course).
And after watching Talia, the passion to serve grew stronger.
She is definitely a very inspiring lady. <3 font="font">3>
what are you so freakin' busy with?
I could be employed right now but I went back to school to be a student.
I could be financially self-sufficient right now but I stayed dependent on my parent's monetary provision.
I could be the type of person who wouldn't care if time passed but I chose to be the person who feels guilty when time passes and I haven't done anything productive.
I could be sleeping well more often than now but I chose sleepless nights to study for an exam that I wouldn't pass with outstanding marks anyway.
I could be reading tons and tons of novels I have been wishing to read but I chose to be buried in books on Human Anatomy, Surgery and even Parasitology.
I could have more free time than now but I chose this life-consuming career path just so I could earn an 'MD' after my name.
I could be in a community as a Public Health Officer but I chose the path to becoming a Doctor for the community.
In the end, I feel I have been prepared for this. Not just by my friends, mentors and my family... but by God's will. Let this be done.
