Just about to finish my midterms week of exams. Damn (@_@)
I am starting to admire our doctors.
How did (and still do) they get through a straight month with only 0-3 hours/night of sleep?
One time, I walked into 7-Eleven after two weeks of sleep deprivation. I picked up some energy drinks (ironic, :P) and when I got to the counter, I had a hard time trying to understand what the cashier was asking me. Hahaha! Talk about weirdo.
She ended up laughing it off with me when I apologized for staring into space.
Even though I love sleep very much, I'm going to give it up for this. :)
...I have to find another favorite activity in life.
My family isn't exactly the type I imagined to spoil a dog.
2nd, my brother, bought a [Pomeranian X Miniature Poodle] last month and brought it -- well, her -- home...
...we named her "Chiya".
And last week, though I don't admit it (because I don't believe in boredom), I guess I was bored that I ended up making a dog dress/shirt. Hahahaha!
There are some things in life that makes you wonder why you did it (kidding! :P)... There are some things in life that are achieved only when your mind and heart are in it.
So... I decided I will still be a student for the next many many years of my life until an exam decides that I can be called a "doctor".
...at some point, I preferred to be "unemployed" than to be "student" but after a month being a bum, I guess I'm not ready to work just yet. I know I can help everyone (includes family, etc) more if I learn more...
It's a Sunday and the past week was, by far, one of the most eventful and fulfilling weeks in my life.
Well, it includes: (1) Friends, (2) Others and (3) Family
Though (4) Self was almost neglected (but since sleep was kind enough to be there for four hours at most), I'm contented.
During a late night chat, a friend asked me: "Why are you so hyper tonight?"
I think I overwhelmed him with all the laughing icons and excessive addition of letters to emphasize emotional overflow
(a likely example: waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh!!! *5 laughing icons*).
I answered: "I feel great! It's weird that I feel stressed but happy." :D
On one night of the week, I traveled and stayed out overnight (not to party, I assure you) a city away from where I live to be with my best friend who needed a best friend at that time. We all go through troubles in life and no matter how strong we perceive (or even if others think so too) ourselves to be, we all need a moment -- even if it was just a few minutes -- to give way to the pressure and let someone else be strong for you.
I don't really know what hit me to volunteer for GK (Gawad Kalinga)last Saturday (for a med mission) -- my last volunteer for GK was 4 years ago, which seems like decades away to me now. I was assigned to be in the 'youth development' (I think is what they call it) part of the med mission -- this simply involves playing with the kids and prevent them from distracting the doctors assessing people and the mothers waiting for their turn. I was there to help but it seemed they helped me more (psychologically and emotionally).
And on family day, I cooked for the house:
basing on one of my favorite chefs' -- Chef John of FoodWishes.com -- videos
I really can't prove number 1 to you. You'll just have to go and see the colors they have. :)
For number 2, let's just say I can wear one of these colors and won't need to take it off even after 5 days 'cause it still looks great (despite my activity-filled life: laboratory, house chores, etc :P).
One time, I came up with this design on a sleepover with my bestfriends:
I used 630 (the deep green one) as a base and used other brands for the designs. This design stayed on my hand for more than a week -- WITHOUT a top coat! I forgot to layer on a top coat, actually, hahahaha.
I usually do nail designs at night then let it dry very well (overnight) then layer on a top coat in the morning. But on that day, my bestfriends slept over and I forgot the top coat.
I traveled to Baguio that weekend and I still had it when I came back to Manila the next week after it was created. It never chipped! I swear!
It faded at the ends though (the normal fading -- the polish looks thinner -- you get when you have your nail polish on for more than a week).
for the pictures above, I used M68 (blue-ish) as the base
for the one above, I used 54 (beige) as the base
for the one above: I topped the 630 (deep green) mixed with yellow (another brand) for the green part of the design
