So bored can die…

s0hMood > *bored*

I’m like bored to death right now. I have work to do, well, I always have work to do, just that I choose not to do them. I so wanted to blog. But I have no idea what to blog about since nothing has been happening recently. My first dissection lab is not worth mentioning since we haven’t get to cut the cadavers yet. That’s only going to happen next week.

Time has been passing kind of slow lately. Sien. I can’t wait to finish second year and go back to Malaysia. Hmmm.. Imagine being a 3rd year student. Half of the time is devoted to seeing patients. Real patients. With real intentions. I dunno whether that’s a good or a bad thing. I suppose it’s good that we will finally know how it’s like to be treating strangers, having to appear all professional and polite. But the bad thing is, what if they complain? And I’m certainly not a very good communicator. Like I’m not nice. And I just find it hard to strike up a convo with strangers without having awkward silent moments in between. Especially with weird people (maybe it’s me, not them lol). I can only go, umm, yeah with a fake smile. So if you catch me doing that to you, haha, you get the idea!

s0hMood > *cry*

Don’t I just ‘love’ the school? Gosh. Friday’s meant to be half day, tute ending at 12 pm. But in the first lecture, the guy did mention that some people will be allocated on later tute times. I assume it’s due to the lack of resources. Who cares about the reason, ALL I cared is not to be included in it because it’s very annoying (It happened to me last year where I’m very pissed about my tute having moved to an hour later).

He did say those people to be included in later times will be those without Friday labs. That’s a half of our batch because labs are split into 2 groups, again because of the lack of space. And DID I mention I was the unlucky one in that case to be included in a night lab group while the other group just have afternoon labs?

Picture my disappointment when I saw my name on that delayed tute group once again. And this time around, I have a frigging 3 hours break after my lecture till tute starts. I know I shud not be complaining when Xyn’s is even later than mine, but ffs, that means by the time tute finishes at 3, my Friday is almost gone. It’s not like I live near to Uni or something. What do they propose me to do during that time? Study? 66666666666!!!!!!!!!

It might not sound like a big deal – well actually it’s not really a big deal, but somehow I just feel very disadvantaged. Just because I have a free Friday doesn’t mean they can change the time like that and certainly not when it has already happened to me last year. I can take a one hour delayed, but three? Man, that’s just too much. That time itself is already worth one lab session.

Now my timetable it soooo fucked up it’s not funny..
Mon: 10 am to 5 pm
Tue: 9 am to 8.30 pm
Wed: 5.30 pm to 8.30 pm
Thu: 8 am to 5pm? (possibly earlier)
Fri: 10 am to 3 pm
At first glance it might not seem all that bad, but I seriously hate it to bits. The worst bit is I can’t change a thing since it’s fixed by the school. Tell me diaoz or not..?

I’m so sad…..

My first injection

s0hMood > *Happy*

Second day of the new sem and we second year students are already bombarded with lots of stuff. The best yet was today’s clinic. The dreadful LA injections. I was the first ‘dentist’, nyek nyek nyek. And Jovina’s my patient. Now I realise, Jovina, I gave my first time to you d leh!!! Though you also gave me your first time la. It was exciting. But my patient was very nervous. I’m all gloved up, waiting for the numbing cream to work and waiting for the tutor to come and guide me. Then I have nothing to do but look at Jovina’s mouth and I notice something. Her lower jaw is shaking. Trembling. And her whole body is kind of shivering. Wahlao, make me also nervous d. Lol. The tutor was guiding Yinan through hers, so I hopped over and look. And I saw something. Yinan’s hand is shaking. Trembling as she injects it in. Wahlao again, makes me even MORE nervous.

Then my turn came. And I showed the tutor where I was going to position it, held the lips away firmly, and there goes the jab. It was such a slow process because we’re doing infiltration and so I have to hold the needle at a steady depth. It’s not meant to be very far in – only 2 to 3 mm. With my hand trembling, it was indeed a super hard job to keep the needle stable in place. Then I injected the LA solution, and my tutor kept asking me to slow down and the pace is just killing me softly. So slowwww la, but if I go any faster, it will prolly hurt. So for Jovina’s sake, I tried to be as slow and consistent as I can. My hand was shaking and as my attempt to control it failed, I ended up giggling a bit, moving the needle, making it harder to stabilise my hand. Then I actually have to control myself, telling myself to breathe in when really, I should be guiding the patient.

It’s really quite exciting! We get to do two injections, and both are painless, which is the best thing. Apparently next week’s one is gonna be a bitch. Even the DA said, just wait till you do the ‘block’, which involves thicker longer needles and larger dose of LA. I can just sincerely hope we students won’t be cursing each other by end of the next session!

p/s Before we inject on real people, we did get to practise – once on an orange. We were all giving each other fake smiles in the beginning when the tutor said it was easy. Turns out it was indeed not as hard as I thought it’ll be. And I was so tempted to take pictures of the process, but I don’t think it will be allowed… Plus it may provoke some very ‘boh song’ memory in some of you, so I better spare you guys from holding on tightly to the edge of your seats.

pp/s My exam results were fine, much better than I expected! Only one more to be revealed, but it’s the subject that really, no one worries about, so yeah, I’m cleared for sem 1!

The last of my holidays

s0hMood > *slept*

My holidays are wasting away unproductively and next week, I’ll be back in Uni, bombarded with loads of new stuff, outlined in point no 5 here. Sadly, I haven’t done any of those. I’ll be finally dropping the toolbox that has remain stagnant in my room since s0hp0h knows when tomorrow (Oh I did stick labels on it right after the exam ends).

It’s been so long since I last seen a pic in s0hp0h.blogspot.com. Btw, that’s the box, unmoved for a whole month and still couting…

Labels that ensure no one can steal my instruments and get away with it!!! (for the first few seconds because anyone with a working right mind will tear the label off ) What’s the use? I dunno…

You are now introduced to the multi-purpose disposable gloves, a dental student’s (maybe also dentist’s, who knows..) best friend (what very sad??? better than NO friends k). As you know, it’s used for protection/infection control. But it’s really really useful!!! I remember mentioning somewhere that Yinan taught me how to use it as a hair-tie (super useful!!). Behold…….

Gloves that I have stolen from clinic last year (and it’s still in my kit, they’re CLEAN la). Here you see it as balloons. Note: It’s something that most dental students experiment with during their lives in Dent School.

Can also act as stressball. Grrrr grrrrrr

Scalers: My least favourite tool – used to remove calculus on teeth, which can be a quite painful process lol, can be only, not always I assure you…

And I have indeed look at my LA manual, but found absolutely no interest in it, hence barely read it. I folded my clinic and lab coats right after I washed them, but I am yet to iron them. I shall just ignore that, throwing the need of professional behaviour out of the window. Maybe someone will be willing to help me gain that supposingly professional presentation back? *cough cough Chian cough cough*. Dissection, ah right. I did nothing. Okla, I’ll be buying the manuals tomorrow. Does that count? I doubt that I’ll read it before next week. Sighs.

I seriously have NO idea where my holidays went, what the heck did I do because I obviously didn’t get anything out of it. Except panda eyes and blotchy face due to altered sleeping patterns and some extra pounds, no thanks to the late hungry night snacks. Lastly, my notes, it’s just like how I left it after my last exam. Totally messed up.

Gosh, I seriously hate this procrastinating side of me. And I hate the ignorance in me even more. How can I just do nothing all day you asked? Well I did. All I did was waking up at 12 pm, then 1, then 2 (yes la, 2 laaaa). have brunch then online. My online activities include checking my exam results, read blogs and forums, chatting and most of all, crunchyroll-ing. Occasionally I blog. But that’s very rare as you can see (I’m so sorry that I still haven’t cough up the super delayed birthdays posts for sooo many friends…). After that, dinner will soon be ready. TV time comes right after dinner then I’ll go shower. Then back to onlining, up till sometime about now (3.07 am, sometimes 4). Sleep. And the cycle repeats itself. I always tell myself to wake up earlier the next day to readjust my sleeping time. I set 3 alarms to wake me up at 9 am, 10 and 12. None of that works. My God, I really cannot believe that’s all I did for the past few weeks. How sad is me life!!!!!

Ok, enough bout my life because it turns out like this almost every freaking single holiday I have here in Adelaide. Does that not tell you something? Just the other day, I was saying how I wished the airline Steph’s working for flies here. Then she said she can always come to visit me during holidays, i.e travelling. I said, that’s not worth it because I might end up bringing her to McD only (Read: Adelaide is THAT boring). Okla, maybe not that bad but, close ok, it’s close I tell ya.

What’s suppose to be a short entry turns out to be such a long draggy post. Sorry sia. If you read this entire post, up to this point without hopping/skimming, congratulations!!! You have just earn yourself the top spot in s0hp0h’s ‘blogging heart’.

p/s omgosh, 4 am liao, I have and NEED to wake up 10 tomolo. But my bed and covers are damn damn cold… *shiver*

I need to know

s0hMood > *hate*

Is it just me or that everyone else too is feeling annoyed that the exam results aren’t released yet? Grrr. There’s like only a few more days till school starts again and not even a single subject is out. It really makes me wonder big time, why the heck does it take sooooooo long to mark those papers? Especially GS when most of it are MCQ questions. Tsk tsk tsk. Maybe they are releasing it with all the other subjects. That explains why because we all know that one particular subject that takes foreverrrrr to come out. Sighs… I demand to KNOW it NOW!!!! (But please don’t make me fail hor)

Gan Bei!!~

s0hMood > *Tea* (shud reli drink more water)


Ever since I turned 18, have been drinking (alcohol) a bit. But once I turned 21, I’ve been drinking a lot! Actually not 21. more like since this year. Why ah? Let’s blame it all on the stress. Although I never drink when I’m stress or sad. It’s more like a celebration thing. I think because most people around me are legal adults liao *cough cough except Perky cough cough* (in M’sia standard), hence drinking become more popular? It also doesn’t help that alcohol is cheaper than soft drinks when you’re in clubs and bars. But then again, who drinks Coca Cola when they’re clubbing? Sounds so nerdy leh. So yea, this is a note to remind myself, try to refrain large consumptions of alcohol. Btw, this doesn’t mean I am drinking a LOT now la. Just more than usual. Don’t worry la, I *love* my liver a lot la, still need it for the next 70 years (if I live to 90 y.o).

Anyway, my holidays are finishing up soon and my results are not out yet. Really wanted to know how I went. Dunno what took the school so long to mark it. Tsk tsk tsk…

This is such a random post hor… The end!

p/s I used to think Tequila taste lemony, NOT!
