When I Grow Up, I Want To Be A Doctor!

I have been neglecting sleep for the past few days because I am very busy not only with work and dancing, but also with watching Grey's Anatomy.

I started to be interested in this series about a month ago when I noticed that my mom gets so engrossed every time she watches it from a cable channel and she even patiently waits for the next episode the following week. I began watching it with her whenever I am at home, but because of my irregular schedule I barely watched two consecutive episodes. Everyone knows how I get squeamish at the sight of blood and wounds and medicines (*faint) but I seem to have gotten a bit used to it by now. Thus, when I had the chance to buy the whole 1st and 2nd season, I grabbed it right away.

Thus the eye bags and an overwhelming crush for McDreamy.

This series brought back all my mushy childhood feelings of dreaming and wanting to be doctor. I remember that I was considering it when I was in college and after dissecting those real brains (sorry to be morbid), I though that perhaps I would be a brain surgeon if I am to pursue medicine. But no med school for me after college. I took AB Psychology which is not a pre-med so it would probably take me another year to take all the science labs I missed. No, I did not want to spend the next 7-10 years of my life studying and working 16hour shifts like what the interns do at the series.

And on that note, I should go back to watching now if I want to catch up with the current season. I just realized, Grey's Anatomy is the only series I got hooked into after Meteor Garden.

Pink Phone

I have said goodbye to my SE T230 mobile phone.
Flashback
On my way home from my small group meeting, I was mugged in Katipunan on September of 2004 where three men pointed a butterfly knife at me and took my humble Nokia 8210 cellphone. This was the second time I lost a phone, I misplaced my first one during my freshman year while I was strolling at the Galleria. I was hesitant to ask my parents for a new phone so I decided to buy a new phone for myself instead and I did so--I got a Sony Ericsson T230.
I held on to that phone for the longest time. Despite the fact that I have dropped it countless of times, it is still working perfectly fine and I found no reason at all to replace it. Add that to the sentimental value that I give to this phone since someone very special to me helped me buy that phone. I have ignored the temptation to purchase the newest walkman phone and settled for my beloved T320.

It was only recently when I took a new job that I had a nagging voice in my head (and some few voices outside, too) that I should replace my phone with a new one. I still hold this phone dear to me, so I did not "swap" it with the new phone that I got at Greenhills.

And so when I have achieved a specific target at work, what better way to reward myself but to finally buy a clamshell phone, with a 2 megapixel camera and music player. A Sony Ericsson Z610i. And it's pink. Not bad for a not-so-expensive phone. (Big grin on my silly face.)

I am known to my friends and family as a lazy texter, one who would usually reply to texts after four hours (or days) later. Prior to knowing that I bought a new phone, they noticed and commented that I actually respond way faster now. Hehe. Text me?

Blog Break

I haven't written anything for a month and I have a VALID reason. I have been very busy. In fact, this very reason still applies now so instead of writing a bunch of words, I am posting pictures of what I have been busy with.

Became a director/switcher/PA in one.

Took the role of an extra.

I did some babysitting, too.

And tried to formulate a brilliant plan while eating red gummy bears.

That's all for now! (Haha laziness on the loose...)
