Inadvertent Medical Issues

Not going to lie, I was pretty freaked out there when my optometrist mentioned “retinal detachment”. I’m so pleased that I got the specialist appointment *super* quickly though, and it’s all resolved now and more of a ‘monitor’ thing rather than waiting to get something more official.

One Year After Graduating

That’s awesome. I’m glad everything is turning out better for you 😀

I’m still alive (and I have news!)

Thanks Kristine!

I’m a (soon-to-be) Nurse!

Good luck on that test and congrats! I know you will rock that test!

Reasons Not to Move to Hong Kong

It’s not *allowed*, just like it’s not allowed in Canada or the US. They have announcements on public transit about not keeping quiet about sexual harassment and inappropriate groping/touching – which is something to keep in mind as well. The “older generation” is very stuck in their mindsets and haven’t been forced to let go of their ways of thinking.

HK is a great place to visit – foreigners/non-Chinese do not get the kind of flack that I go because I look like I belong.

Vista and 8

I used ninite! Clay told me about it and it’s basically a big installer. You choose whatever programs you want and it automatically goes through the installation process (and says no to all those extra things like Bing/Ask Jeeves toolbars). Super useful.

Remembering; the larks, still bravely singing, fly

It’s called a “professional portfolio”, just details my writing samples, education, progress, goals in nursing. It’s a requirement both for my program and for the CRNBC after graduation.

What I did this weekend (in photos)

Instagram is a photo sharing thing, from what I can tell, plus it has a bunch of filters for photos to make them look like polaroids. 🙂 I’m liking it so far, I have a bunch of friends who use it.

I’ve downloaded Angry Birds (the original one, not space or rio or whatever else the store had). Super fun!

I got it a little subsidized as I re-signed a contact for it 🙂 It’s a huge upgrade from my previous phone (Samsung Corby Pro – it’s a LOT smaller than this new one!). Thanks or the suggestion on Pixlr-o-matic, I’ve downloaded it and it’s a lot of fun!

Guess what I’m good at!

That I blog well or that I blog about sex well? 😉

A sitting duck, Christmas and other thoughts

My sisters and I pooled in for a leather bag from Fossil for my mom’s Christmas present. 🙂

Handful of cuteness (and still impatient).

It *just* arrived today! 😀 It came via USPS Priority Mail? It’s been raining a lot here today though, so when I got home and saw that the packaging was soaked my heart sank because it’s a textbook, after all! Luckily the book was still shrink wrapped (!) so no water damage was done 🙂

She’s actually a bjd from Doll Leaves! She’s 16cm and is actually a discontinued dolly, the stock name was DingDing 🙂 She’s my first bjd and my first ‘tiny’. 🙂

The end of something, the start of something

I missed my coworkers too 🙂 They’re nice people overall. Plus, hey, I have a new jacket that works well in the rain.

A lot of shopping, a lot of meds

It’s Value Village’s Super Saver Card, pretty nifty. They have different daily deals for card holders! I mostly go for housewares (like mugs), clothes, books. I’m iffy about furniture because most of the time it’s soft stuff and you can’t see what’s crawling around inside.

Where I’ve been

Portland was fun! It’s a very nice city 🙂 I did walk by a parking lot that was full of food carts a few times, but I’m not sure if it was the time I went or what, but none of them seemed to be open (no lights on, order/pick up windows were covered).

I get it, I’m young.

lol, it doesn’t matter how old/young I am, he should have just handed me the ballot and given me the instructions on what to do. 😛 That’s his job, not to question my intentions, heh. Annoying man (he looked 50s)

Nouns I love

I like lace too, but I’m highly selective of the type of lace I wear (polyester is a no-go for me, for the most part, but I don’t mind lace from natural types of fabric). Silk on the other hand, especially at 100%, is luxurious. I spoil myself rotten with decent lingerie.

What’s the size of your footprint?


It is a giant microbe! It’s an early birthday present from Jenna – she gave me the common cold! I already have a flu that I got from my sister 😉

LOL at Taiwan being non-existent… Just put down China 😛

Yeah.. I live in a stand-alone family home with a front and back yard, I take public transit, but also drive on occasion because the transit system isn’t convenient for getting to some places (like 2 hours via transit or 30 minutes by car).

My stick babies are still alive!

When doing my online research, I found that there’s quite a few specie of stick and leaf insects that are native to Australia (granted, not sure where in Australia, but it’s still interesting! Better than where I live, where there are no native species).

They eat along the edges of the leaves, so instead of having the natural jagged-ness of the bramble leaves, they leave a smoother outside rim to the leaves 🙂

» Posted By Michelle On October 11, 2010 @ 10:42 am

The length of their body is ~2cm right now, a lot of the time they put their antennae together too, so that they’re more stick like. 😀 I’m just happy that they’re eating now, lol.

» Posted By Michelle On October 11, 2010 @ 10:41 am

Could you have said no to them?

It helps that stick insects don’t destroy homes, that was their main concern.

» Posted By Michelle On October 8, 2010 @ 7:23 pm

Ohh, a lot of biology profs are awesome like that 😉 I’ve gotten planaria to take home before, as well as sunflowers, bean plants, sundews and now stick insects 😀

» Posted By Michelle On October 8, 2010 @ 8:38 am

I think that was more geared towards ‘pest’ type of insects 😉 My mom’s cool with it, after I told her that my professor gave them to me!

» Posted By Michelle On October 7, 2010 @ 10:40 pm

I clearly lead a boring life…

Ahh, no, it’s 3 midterms that are spaced out throughout the term (and there’s a final at the end of the term too). 🙂

On sea otters and school

Ahh, yes, that too! I remember seeing a photo of that once and I thought it was *the* cutest thing ever. *briefly muses about switching to a marine biology major for the millionth time*

» Posted By Michelle On September 16, 2010 @ 9:57 pm

I *love* sea otters, and the majority of marine wildlife – I may have watched Blue Planet in its entirety far too many times to count. I think a sea otter would probably be miffed if it was living in a bathtub though 😉

A thousand posts? Really?!

The fact that I really liked the prof was a huge reason why I registered for the course to begin with. My issue was the large amount of excess work for a project that was worth ~20% that had to be worked on over a weekend (mandatory field trip) + extra lab work during the week that I have 4 midterms already for my other classes. If that hadn’t been the case, I probably would have stuck with that class. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to work it out and take the course next year. *crosses fingers*

September… Blergh.

Fudge, 15?! *falls over* And I thought I had a lot… 5 used, 2 being developed.

What’s your degree in again? I have a text that cost ~$200 (brand new, no used ones available). I find that science texts are always more expensive, in relativity. I spent less on my arts elective courses overall than my science classes (since those include textbooks, lab manuals, other stuff).
