Shortly after, life went a little cray – cray when I took on not 1 or 2, but 3 assignments (on top of gym) at one shot >.< I don’t know why I didn’t just say no, knowing that 1 was a terrible even before the start. One month of sleep deprivation. A never ending to-do list. Just not managing.
It’s all over and life is a whole lot better at this point. Just 2 assignments plus gym closures means less classes, more me-time, self fulfilling activities, catching up with the things I meant to do. I just can’t wait for my week off in August and the holiday in September.
Irritating patients still persist; the bane of my existence – I hate patients who abuse the system. But all things considering, my case load is rosy and the odds are in my favour.
Currently reading Peter Mayle’s delightful A Year in Provence. I frequently opine that a book by a male, english author is likely to be slightly stale and unappealing; I was quite wrong – it’s quite the page turner, and it’s feeding me with bits of exciting and occasionally too much information about Provence, where I’ll be soon! The book is almost as old as me though; hopefully the delightful bits remain and the not so pleasant ones… no longer ^^

After months of abuse, even my body is giving up on me.
Thankfully, the 38°C temperature lasted 12 hours and was dully surpressed by panadol.
My lungs are still not happy >.<
Finally, long awaited break so I can have some me-time and do the things I really love (but don’t have time to). Miraculous ending to the toxic family saga (the power of prayer!), PMS over and done with (what a difference a day or two make[s]!), positive response from paragliding company in France (pending weather condition) and an afternoon of baking, whats not to give?
While I’m still on my self imposed restriction on reading (since I have a backlog of choreography to learn), here’s a travel book worth a few laughs:
Some travellers are just rough and ready. Some are politically incorrect and would rather stay home. No prizes for guessing which Karl Pilkington is, but learn more about the 7 wonders of the world and be amused while at it ^^
