Hello all you silent readers... Well I presume I still have silent readers that is. I know once upon a time I was shocked to find out how many people were silently reading my LJ blog... But that was then, and admittedly I've been missing from blogging for quite a long time....
Idk... But somehow I'm feeling the urge to blog regularly again. I think it comes with the fact that I'm getting a new job. New outlook on life and what not.
Anyway... I'm counting down. Day by day. 8 more days of torture left.
And as I'm saying all these... I can't help but hope that my new job will be what I expected and more. That it won't be such a disappointment like my current place is. That I won't feel like I jumped out of the frying pan and into the fire like it was when I started at this place in April last year. 24th of April. I remember the date well.
But I have a good feeling about the new job. Something that I didn't have with my current job... Which I took only because my friend said "you've not worked in a hospital before right? why don't you try?"
Thinking back... Ok, I did get to experience a bunch of stuff (well, crap) that I'll never get to experience otherwise. And not many researchers has 'hospital work' in their CV so it might give me a leg up. Either way. I'm glad that I'm leaving. And I wouldn't have stay one second longer.
Have I mentioned that I booked a hotel in JB the following weekend? Going to stay for a night in JB with my friend. Who has NEVER been to city square mall before hence the reason I'm insisting on this trip. I wonder if she's even been to Malaysia before. Ridiculous right? Well... She was from China, and then switched citizenships after getting an astar scholarship. I've been wanting to go to Malaysia with her ever since then but yeah... Never materialised. Till now. Can you believe it? She's my bestie since sec sch and we've never been on a trip together. Ok... I haven't with any of my other best friends either... But in comparison my sis has been on numerous trips with her classmates. Me on the other hand... I've gone to visit my good but not super good friend in China (whom I met at a Japanese language class in uni). And then I've trooped over to Ph and Penang and met up with Arashi friends... (And entirely relied on them for my holiday...)
Yeah... Think it'll be fun! And we'll be eating loads!
So as I've mentioned before previously, in between my long hibernations... I'm into fountain pens and that is STILL a thing. With fountain pens come nice japanese paper and nice japanese planners... I made my first ever unboxing video last night and posted it to FB and like youtube
. It's about 12 mins long and I talked a bunch as I unboxed. Well... that's what you're supposed to do right? I've never watched an unboxing video my entire life so... Lol. No, you won't see my face, but yes I spoke plenty if you're curious about how I sound.
Yes... fountain pens... I've been going to pen meets and other pen events... There's one this fri evening in fact. Heck, I have a very busy two weeks ahead of me. Thurs is dinner with one of my colleagues. Tmr's lunch is a treat from HOD, for our whole lab. Which isn't that many of us really, cos just the molecular peeps. Then next Fri I've already booked my friends for a night out. Preferably with some drinking involved. And next Sat is the two days one night trip so yeah... Lol. Well I'm just packing an overnight bag but still, I can't wake up too late else it'll get really crowded!
Also! I still owe RF a lunch for the job referral so I'll have to look for a place next week. The problem is where to eat lol. Can't be too far from the workplace...
And another colleague asked me out for lunch... Which may or may not happen. *shrugs* And oh, there's still a colleague whom I've been in contact with quite a bit over the course of my work, who doesn't yet know that I'm leaving. Lol. And apparently the bulk of the people in the routine lab doesn't know I'm leaving either. Though I'm not particularly close to them so I'm not expecting anything.
8 more days.
I just have to make it through that.
Been mapling a lot lately. Lol. Nazukashi. The word 'mapling'. I used to be such a crazy mapler. Still missed the PC version a ton, but the auto battle system is indeed really good for the once maple fans who are now grown ups like myself. The game is still a massive money suck. But it's nice to be able to leave your char alone to auto battle for a few hours, without even needing to have the game on, and come back to pick it up a few hours later. Yeah. I'm totally addicted now, to the point of neglected all my other mobile games. Animal crossing? Meh. It pales in comparison to maple.
Ah yes. On the Arashi front. HURRAH FOR 15 SIGN UPS. Anyway what is happening to the fandom? Or the ficdom? No one writes fanfics anymore? Because everyone can only write 140 chars or what 280 now? for a single tweet? Or is it because the Arashi fandom is shrinking and everyone is moving away from arashi and into some other fandom? Any ideas?
So that's it for today. See ya soon I guess? And oh yes, if you've made it through my post till this point... Mind leaving a quick comment for me? Just a 'hi' or 'i'm here' will do. I'm curious to see how many silent readers I still have :P
