Whew, the week is over! Gosh, if I haven’t said this before, this past week has gone by so quickly! I just took a test for my Ruminant Production lab and it was a little tricky. My professor asked some questions about grasses and legumes that I could not for the life of me remember the details of! I know that I screwed up a little bit, but I hope that in the end I’ll get exempt from the final.
This past week I also took a Pharmacology exam, which went alright. It was also tricky (but what test I take isn’t) but I think I did pretty okay for the most part. I didn’t walk out there thinking I perfected it, but I do hope at the very least I did better than average. I don’t want to say much until I get my grade back, but let’s hope that I did okay!
In the last few days I’ve had some people come over to chill. Since I have a pretty big loft on the 3rd floor of a building with a balcony and also have a laptop with a 17 inch monitor my place is usually the place to hang out when my friends are tired from exams and just want to watch a movie or two. On Wednesday my friends came over for a Zombie Movie Night, where we watched Evil Dead 2. James, Rosebelle and my Korean friend Jae and his girlfriend Elma came over and it was a lot of fun. We were going to watch Evil Dead 3, but since Rosebelle thought that Evil Dead 2 was really corny (which, if you ever watched it, is true) we ended up watching another movie I had on my hard-drive: 27 Dresses. So much for Zombie Movie Night huh? Haha…
Anyway, after that we ended up watching some Wonder Girls videos from my drive (I’ve been downloading more and more each day… it gives me something to do while I study), and then Jae decided to show us some really sad Korean music videos online. It was already around 1am the next day, and we had just watched 2 movies straight, so we were a little tired but we watched them anyway. I think James is traumatized and surprised at how sad some Korean videos are. (Get used to it! It’s always been that way! Hahaha….) If you haven’t watched sad, Korean music videos before I suggest you click here, to get started. It’s KISS – Because I’m A Girl, the music video. It’s a very old music video from early 2000 I believe. It’s about 10 minutes long, but hey, that was the trend back then. Check it out and tell me what you think.
Today after our Ruminant Production test, our Immunology class was canceled since Dr. Sanchez was out sick so James, Belle and I decided to head to a local Chinese restaurant called Ding Hao. We tried their Peking Chicken dish, along with some braised pork and some crispy noodle special they had. The food ended up being alright–I guess after eating at my girlfriend Jeannie’s place with her family (she’s pure Chinese), nothing really beats that, so I was a little disappointed. I haven’t really had any kind of real authentic Chinese food here in the Philippines as of yet. I’m super surprised that there aren’t any good restaurants around, but maybe I’m just not looking hard enough. In New York and New Jersey, you can find tons of good places and most of them are not that expensive. If you’re in the Philippines and know of a good place to check out please let me know! I’d love to find a good Chinese place to eat at.
Right now, I’m in the midst of studying for my Parasitology laboratory test and final, both of which are taking place next week. There is just under a month left to the end of this semester, so I’m a little anxious to see how it all will end. I will most likely be taking some finals, but I hope that I’ll be alright in the end. I’ve been keeping my head above water for the most part though, so I know I’ll pull through.
I just gotta keep on truckin’. That’s my motto until I end this semester. Let the ending spiral begin!
P.S. — I’m downloading a series featuring the Wonder Girls working with some upcoming patissiers. It was done a year or two ago, but I think it’s really interesting that they were all competing against each other for the $10,000 prize. They basically have to complete missions to come up with the best cakes for gifts to people who need them. I’ve only seen the first episode, but it’s pretty cool! You guys should check it out!
