Year 2007 was full of happenings year for me. I got attached to HP since the beginning of year, I gained alot of teachings from that. Then I had my attachments, it was straight 6 months and 1month of irrelvant studies(CS & PM) then 3weeks of holiday. LoL!
During the attachments, I gained alot of experience and know alot of friends through it. I get to work outside for the first stopover attachment and second stopover back to school.
I come to a point that not everyone is willing to teach you and they are not expected to teach you anyway. Even if they do teach, they may get impatient. Another pointer - Not everyone is as patient as you think! So! Don't take things for granted, appreciate what is given ^_^ And yes, I don't like that system because I was not paid and my grades were given by bias supervisors. The supervisors' appraisal mark cost me 6 modules! We don't have a choice anyway. Perhaps I should learn boot-licking for next semester 2's attachment and luckily we going to be paid for the next attachment. HaHa
I also helped out in the prize giving ceremony as an usherer on stage. It was kinda cheapo to school cause we are free labour
Anyway I managed to persuade myself, I'll gain lots of psychological experience. LoL, just to make myself happy and more willing to do the work. Nonetheless, I pretty much had no choice because I was one of the people who had little work on hand compared to others.
That day is also the day I diagnosed myself that I had acne. (maybe face masks I used caused the problem) it's Not just plain pimples. It was devastating and annoying. You can go search for acne face images if you want to imagine the situation. I've become extreme introvert because my beautiful face had gone bad. I have become ugly!! GODDDD
During that 1month of studies, I practically avoided everyone except my 2 close friends who made ignorant remarks initially but in later stage they realised that I was extremely upset so they quietly stand close to me, giving me supports
I went to see determologist. The consultant fee and pills was expensive! Senior consultant fee ( 70+ ) I didnt chose him, I just put default on the online appointment booking. The pills(100+ pills for 2months), creams(BP) and cleanser(oil free) altogether cost around $90+..Total burnt $160++
I stayed at home throughout the 3weeks holiday to recuperate. (It wasn't difficult at all! I love to stay at home!) Many friends invited me out but I just cannot go.The acne was serious and I don't want negative attention which I experienced during school. It was hurtful. During these period, I religiously eat/apply my medicines (pills,cream, cleanser)and then had healthy diets.
Perhaps the determination started from here. I started to think what would I do if I had my beautiful face. I would smile and talk to alot of people. Have plenty confidence and selfesteem. Dress pretty...the list goes on. Since I'm at home all the times, I also start thinking am I living the right way such things, alot of reflections were done. I tried to lose weight by drinking water and fasting, but I realised it just a temporary method. Also I spent my time reading about nutrition facts, exercises, study skills and how to become a better person inside out.
After semester started, my face was not fully healed yet. Its still reddish. It only heal about 1month after the semester started.
Ah! yes I also started my academic goals at this semester's beginning (shant elaborate cause it was the previous entry)
I helped out at bazaar during the Christmas season, it was a great exposure ^ . ^j Attended sf bro's wedding, first friend's wedding of my life! More to come! HaHa~ Washed my grandma's clothes n garments(1st time too)..It was full of shit! LoL~ Love cannot be forced, so I'm exposing myself to all possibilities.
I'm a happy person at the end of 2007
Will blog about my resolution for 2008 soon!
