Update #4





My internship has been going great so far! I'm so glad I met so many awesome people, and that my working environment is flexible and relaxed. 

The other day I unfortunately caught stomach flu. I felt the pangs of pain in the middle of the night, but I ignored it because I thought I was just bloated (like I always am -.-). When I woke up, the pain still persisted so I took medicine for gastric and stomach wind. It helped for a little while, and I headed back to bed to get some sleep. The pain got worse throughout my sleep, and I eventually woke up with a sharp and throbbing pain in my stomach, a strong feeling of nausea, and even worse, cramps (although this had nothing to do with my stomach flu). I could bear it no longer the next day, after having suffered a full day in pain and only getting temporary relief by taking Panadol, and headed to the doctor. I got two days MC, although I only skipped work for a day.

It felt awful when I was having menstrual cramps, a torn ligament, and stomach flu at the same time. I felt weak and useless. It was one of the worst few days that I've ever experienced.

Anyway, moving on to a cheery topic ~~~ FOOD!!!

Wings

Sunlight comes creeping in
Illuminates our skin
We watch the day go by
Stories of all we did
It made me think of you
It made me think of you



Under a trillion stars
We danced on top of cars
Took pictures of the stage
So far from where we are
They made me think of you
They made me think of you



Oh lights go down
In the moment we're lost and found
I just wanna be by your side
If these wings could fly
For the rest of our lives



I'm in a foreign state
My thoughts they slip away
My words are leaving me
They caught an aeroplane
Because I thought of you
Just from the thought of you



Oh lights go down
In the moment we're lost and found
I just wanna be by your side
If these wings could fly
Oh damn these walls
In the moment we're ten feet tall
And how you told me after it all
We'd remember tonight
For the rest of our lives



If these wings could fly


Oh lights go down
In the moment we're lost and found
I just wanna be by your side
If these wings could fly
Oh damn these walls
In the moment we're ten feet tall
And how you told me after it all
We'd remember tonight
For the rest of our lives

Update #3

So... I've been working the past week! I was hoping that I wouldn't have to bring my crutches for work but I still can't move around stably without the crutches. Can't wait to get the MRI scan done so that I know the progress of my knee. 

Work has been really tiring. I've been waking up way earlier than the time I ought to, and falling asleep the moment my head touches my pillow at night. Getting used to the whole waking up early routine is a tedious chore. 

But!!! I was lucky to meet this bunch of awesome interns at work who have been extremely tolerant even though my injured leg has been really impeding. 




I've been trying to learn how to use Dayre but I still can't figure it out!!!!!! Pardon my stupidity lol.

Til next time then! ~

Once Upon A Dream

I know you,
I walked with you once upon a dream
I know you,
That look in your eyes is so familiar a gleam

And I know its true
That visions are seldom all they seem
But if i know you
I know what you'll do
You'll love me at once, like what you did once upon a dream.

Once upon a night,
I dreamed we'd be together
In love forever.
Once upon a night,
I was wishing for a never,
A never ending.

Once upon a night
Once upon a time
Once upon a wish
Once upon a dream.

Oceans


Exams are finally over for me!!! I feel so relieved.

Found the above picture in my phone the other day when I was super bored. It's a really really old picture, taken last year when my hair was still long. The dress was a birthday gift from my bestie, but I've yet to actually wear it out yet. I'm now determined to wear it out once my leg recovers and I'm able to walk like normal. 


My Sushi <3

I've been feeling very frustrated and irritable these few days. Perhaps because I've been cooped up at home for so long due to my injury. I feel so disconnected from the world lol. 

Also, I realised that people are generally really nice to those with physical disabilities. I received alot of "Get well soon" remarks from strangers who held the lift door open for me etc. It feels really heartwarming.

Then it made me wonder, what about people who can't "Get well soon"? That's why its such a wonderful feeling learning about people with physical disabilities who managed to overcome all odds and live a healthy and happy life. 

On a sidenote, I just discovered this app called "Dayre" that I installed on my phone ages ago but never used. I think I only posted one post? I'm still trying to get the hang of it though. Basically it's like a blogging app where you post about your daily life via your smartphone. Blog posts on "Dayre" are probably more of "I ate this today" rather than long blog posts that you post on Blogger? But anyway, you can check out my "Dayre". My username is "nictmin".

Okay, bye!

Frustrated


I think this picture reflects how I feel very well. Extremely frustrated at still being unable to walk unassisted and having three papers left when everyone else have more or less finished their examinations. Blergh.

I'm so bored and sick of studying.

On a sidenote, ask me a question at ask.fm/nictmin ! :D 

Just created an account hahaha.

Update #2

It's been a week plus since my accident. I went to the hospital on Monday, and was told that I'm suffering from a ligament tear and a fracture. Apparently I would never fully recover from it, and that if things don't look good in the future, I might need to undergo surgery to recover a fully functional knee. I would also need to do physiotherapy to aid in the healing of my ligament. Sounds really bleak, but I shall try to be positive about it. 

I am now wearing a leg brace and moving around with crutches. It was hard adapting to the use of crutches because I'd never even tried to use one before. I was also ignorant enough to set the height of the crutches too high for myself. I am now able to move around with the crutches more efficiently. I have also tried walking but I still can't. The leg brace helps a lot with the pain, as it keeps my leg straight. My knee is still swollen, albeit less swollen than on the first day. I am hoping that the swelling will subside quickly.

The main issue that I have now is regarding my examinations as well as my internship. Examinations wise, I have called the office for a better arrangement, so that's settled. But I need to be able to walk for my internship. Sure, I'd have to wear the leg brace. But I need to walk at least. I'm just hoping for the best. 


In the meantime, here's my cute companion!

Lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
I have nobody for my own
I'm so lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
Wish I had someone to call on the phone

I'm a soldier, a lonely soldier
Away from home through no wish of my own
That's why I'm lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
I wish that I could go back home

Letters, never a letter
I get no letters in the mail
I've been forgotten, yeah, forgotten
Oh, how I wonder how is it I failed

Now I'm a soldier, a lonely soldier
Away from home through no wish of my own
That's why I'm lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
I wish that I could go back home

Can't help feeling so ultra pessimistic nowadays :(
