Hello, my dearies! It’s me, and I’m back one last time (this year).
I just realized I did not post anything on New Year’s Eve last year -understandable, I still had no electricity –therefore, no WiFi — and I was basically wallowing and watching Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. (Fun, right? Actually I loved it!)
I do not know exactly what I’ll be doing, although… who am I kidding? I’ll be
crying watching the reputation Stadium Tour on Netflix. (And remembering those happy times :D)
So, let’s start with a recap of what happened this year, shall we?
I. Actually. Started. Driving.
I needed a push (a $10 5-minute Uber ride, to be exact. Don’t. Ask.) to take my car to uni and become more independent. Watching To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before also helped, if I’m honest. Lara Jean described my issues with driving perfectly, and if she could get over them, drive to her prince charming and get the happy ending she deserved, then I could, too, for crying out loud!
except for the prince charming part I’m still single as heck
So, I started driving. And of course I’ve had the classic road rage, the frustrations with driving daily. But I still love the freedom it has given me. I can finally go places without needing eternal help (except for my laziness sometimes… and the fact that I dislike driving at night) I wouldn’t ever go back.
This semester was HELL. And I survived.
When people told me the first semester of my P2 year would be awful I kind of thought they were exaggerating. Honestly? I am proud of myself for surviving and sticking through the end. I’m proud of my classmates who all passed Microbiology (aka the worst of the worst!) 2 exams a week since October is something I did not think I could handle until now.
I finally got my immunization certification.
If I’m scared of anything, it is to have to stick a needle to someone else. My coordination is non-existent. Somehow, though, I learned how to do this without hurting someone else. Huh.
The reputation Stadium Tour.
I mentioned this on an earlier blog post, but of course I had to mention it again. It was a life changing experience to get to travel and see my favorite artist. I shall never forget it, and now that there will be a Netflix event, I will be able to watch my favorite parts over and over again. Is this what happiness feels like?
Still working on it –hoping next year’s the year we actually move in. Selfish reasons aside, I want my family to rest already 😦 Some obstacles still need to be overcome, though. Wish us luck!
To finally reach the 50% PharmD milestone this summer. To eat healthier. To stop eating junk food. To be more organized. Wish me luck, I guess 🙂
How was YOUR year? Did you get to achieve some of your goals? Do you have any goals for 2019?
PS: Part 2: TV Shows and Part 3: Books are coming up!
