breakfast for dinner/ poker fun (can you see my cheat sheet? / a texan leaving for home (temporary)
yikes, i start medicine rotation again. have been worrying over it for the past couple of days. i don't know. i fear chest xrays, random questions, the extra expectations and responsibilities, and lastly, those darn ekg's... it's like i get them, but i forget them so easily.
(and i repented last night. really, why am i such a worrier??!)
this past week has been a mix of frustruations, fun and flattery. the strangest combination, i say.
anyways, back to hospital sleepovers. oh fun.
(ok, i'll be more optimistic;)
from another night,
we told him to look like he just won the lottery:)

every time i attempt to do a heap of household errands, i end up either burning something, breaking something, or making more of a mess in general. don't worry though. i'm improving. i'm so much quicker with folding clothes after taking them out of the dryer. it's done, like in the same day.
today was breaking my pedometer. i use my pedometer to check time or see (roughly) how far i ran when i'm outside. it's quite reliable. who knew today would be its last to accompany me :( the washer was making clunky noises when it was running earlier today. i assumed it was just 'routine,' you know... sometimes our bodies make weird noises but there's really nothing wrong with us. but alas, it was my poor pedometer mixed in with running shorts and jeans. *sigh*
a new pedometer or a new stopwatch? ... or a new mp3 with a pedometer and a stopwatch? *raising a suggestive eyebrow*

back in my apartment.
think the world turns slower when i'm with my family. i felt like i had all the time in the world. but the moment i come back, i'm swamp by small little things that need to be done and they overwhelm me.
had a great dinner with someone i respect very much.
word of wisdom for the day: "you can't share what you don't have."
think i'll sleep now and unpack tomorrow.

it's my new favorite green drink. (sorry, dew) it tastes better and as i found out, more caffeine! woohoo.. ok, i did just have the whole bottle. a little jittery, i say.
fyi, i won't be posting any new blogs until this weekend. if you guys find yourselves bored and in need of doing good to others this friday, please send me some positive vibes, encouraging thoughts, and powerful prayers. i hate long tests, especially the ones that make you come back after lunch break. i'm just a little afraid that fatigue will hit me bad towards the end of the day. yup, i shall have a few green bottles in the locker that day. sips here and there to titrate myself.
anyways......... ok, i should log off. good bye.

very sleepy today..
kept dosing off at every new line in my reading :T
fyi, i 'moved in' to my parents for this month. i have access to a library that's huge, clean, quiet with lots of cubicles, rooms and tables. best of all, free wire-less and easy parking! it's perfect in terms of studying for a big exam... it's just that no food or drinks are allowed, which makes this little rebellious mind find creative ways to hide those prohibited items. e.g i drink coffee out of nalgene bottles nowadays...
[addendum: nalgene bottel in a japanese thermal bottle pouch :) it's quite nifty.]
so much to be thankful for. so much to pray for. so much to look forward to. so much i do not know.
