Reality Time

Because of my busy schedule, I mean this week, this is the only time that I’ve gotten back to my laptop..yeay! cheers!

So now, I want to share to you what happened to me this week.

Being a 4th year student is never easy, especially when you are taking a medical technology course (in other country, it is called a clinical laboratory scientist). As of now, I am really enjoying all my subjects because all my professors are all good! I mean I can digest all their information that they taught us.

Right now, their teaching mechanism is based on how their students respond on the situation that were given to them. Like for example, Clinical Chemistry 3 which is Endocrinology.

Gee!I never thought that Endocrinology is a very interesting subject. Because you are going relate all the mechanisms that are happening from your brain (hypothalamus) to your pituitary gland and to the target organ. Honestly, when I’m taking my Anatomy and Physiology class, the worst lesson that I’ve encountered is on Endocrine System. But luckily, I’m beginning to understand the real world of Endocrinology. Probably this is the most interesting part of Clinical Chemistry.

Second stop is the Blood banking.

My first impression in that subject is. IT IS HARD. Good thing that my professor is very superb in discussing it. What I mean is, he is making that hard subject a piece of cake. Even though there are some terminologies that I can’t understand, he really sees to it that we all understand on what he is talking about. And right now, I’m loving the wonders of blood banking. On the brink of studying that, I realized that blood is really a complex thing. Meaning, it is very complicated that is has many terminologies. But what you portray in this subject reflects about all your understanding on this. Practically, you will apply this when you hit your internship. Yeay!! I’m so excited for it.

For those who are curious on what we do in blood bank is, you will study the properties of blood… everything in it so you will understand the rationale on the transfusion process (blood donation). The you will get a chance to work on the most crucial work of a clinical laboratory scientist which is to test the compatibility of the blood for your patient who needs blood. This tasks, even though you will be liable for the results really keeps me really excited. I just don’t know if I’m weird or not but I Β really enjoyed blood banking. I’m really amazed that I’m learning the different blood types and be able to apply it to my own. The ABO, Rh and lots of blood group system that you need to memorize. It is really fun when you love the subject that you are studying even though it is hard. HAHA! Probably, that is the most common dilemma of every students.

Earlier, when I take my seminar lessons and it is all about Mycology, even though I love the subject… the exam is really hard. Because to think of it that it is almost a year since I last studied that lesson. But then again, I never appreciated much of Mycology than Virology and Bacteriology. I can’t really imagine the fungi and everything. Mycology is really such a headache for me..lols! Good thing that next week, it will be all about Virology. Yeah! we’ll talk about virus.

I guess, that will be my entry for now. Because I’m to sleepy… It’s really nice sharing what is happening on your medical stuffs right?

How I wish I cold watch Jay’s concert too XD God will set a perfect timing for it to happen. But for now, at least i’m satisfied with this, and I will just wait for the DVD of the World Tour concert.

The Creator’s Love

” For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

– Jeremiah 29:11

When you know that God will surely lead you into the right path, you shouldn’t tremble, you shouldn’t be coward and most especially you should not give up because God is always there for you no matter what.

I remember when we have our small group and we have a question that we need to discuss to our fellow group mates/friends. The question went, “How are you going to share to you workplace the word of God? How are going to tell to your classmates about God?” Among the answers that were shared, one answer captivates me the most and it was. “You can share the word of God telling how did you experience God working in your life.” Right, that is one of the good answer that I’ve been waiting for. Since in my working progress with God, It came out on my mind that as a believer, you need to share it with your fellowman what God and Jesus done for us. Also it is a commandment for us to follow, The Great Commandment.

“Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. And teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

– Matthew 28:19-20

But another question that popped on my mind was, How am I going to share it? I once had a chance to share it with my cousins, and I never know where to start. First things first, before you share the word, you must pray to God. I never knew it back then. I grabbed that very opportunity sharing God with cousin because we were in the same boat.

As I reflect on my group mate answer, I did the same thing. Sharing God through my experience with God.

So here it goes.

It happened last year and I know God has a plans for me that’s why my life now didn’t turned out the way that I thought. I’m currently studying Medical Technology or Clinical Laboratory Science. We are trained to make a diagnosis on the laboratory or to identify the illness based on the laboratory works. Being a student of medical technology was surely a very tough job and I very tiring too. I know that in any fields of medicine course this will probably that rants. Also, we undergo many studies that relates to laboratory science like, Microbiology, Parasitology, Clinical Chemistry, Histology, Hematology, Clinical Microscopy and many more. Our ultimate weapon for this course in the microscope! Oh yeah! it is fun learning this especially when you will relate in on the diseases. Sometimes I feel like a doctor because the results in laboratory Β has the final say on what disease a person have. Laboratory diagnosis will aid the physician to support his/her diagnosis on the patient.

The hardest part of being a medical technologist is studying lol! there will be a time that you will experience a lot of sleepless nights because of studying. There are lots of terms that you need to memorize. One secret that I’ve learn is you should not only memorize, but analyze is the right thing to do.

One subject that I didn’t like is the Clinical Chemistry. I don’t like chemistry at all that’s why I asked myself on the first place, “Why did I study this course?” That was very funny question to me. I never knew how did I passed from the worst chemistry subjects like Analytical Chemistry, Biochemistry and the worst of all the Organic Chemstry. But only Clinical Chemistry knocks me off my feet! I don’t know maybe because I don’t like our professor but she seems very competent on teaching but also I think she also have some issues like favoritism and etc. But I’m thankful for her because I really learned a lot from her like venipucture (extracting blood from patient) and to eat the book of that subject.

On my first semester, I know that my grades were failing because I never passed one of her quizzes and exams. I’m loosing hope that time because my grade was very low like 65% over 100%. Gee! it is the lowest grade that got since I am studying. Lots of students on the higher batch warned us that 3rd year was the worst year of being a student. So from that day, I finally believed them.

Also the schedule of my class was not even a student friendly. So how am I supposed to manage all of my subject because of my schedule, surely one subject will have to suffer and that is my bioethics subject. The worst schedule that I’m talking about was every Wednesday. That is such a tight schedule without even a break. Good thing one of our professor gave a bit of her time just for us to have our lunch. A total of 4 subjects in that day with quizzes every meeting surely we are all jam packed.

Thinking that my bioethics will suffer the most, I got a wrong answer. When we had our final exam and I see my name of the removals list ( it means that you are given a chance to pass the subject if you pass the removal exam) I got my removal exam on my Clinical Chemistry subject. The brighter side of that, my professor taught us everything that exam will cover so I guess I’ll just have to study. In reality I’m so nervous thinking that it is a do or die test. I asked God to give me wisdom and knowledge for this exam. I’m so confident that time because when I finally saw the questions on our exam, I can’t help but to smile because I know the answers well. I know God answered my prayers already so when the list who passed the exam were posted, I gotta say that God is so awesome and powerful! because I passed the exams! meaning I will be a regular student on the next semester.

Clinical Chemistry I think was my Waterloo. On my second semester, I’m stuck with the same professor and again my grades were not as low as before but still I can see the light that I will pass. But when on the finals, I got a lowest mark on the quiz, I started to tremble again. Like I had this feeling when I know that I will take a Β removal exam on this subject. And right, on the second time around, I take my removal exam on that subject. This time I cried a lot. Because all of my classmates are rejoicing and here I am studying, stuck again with this same subject. I guess God has a plan for me, to understand Clinical Chemistry more and more. When I’m answering the exam, the questions were easy and I have a feeling that I can pass that. But something in the back of my mind made me feel that I’m not so confident as before. So the results are just like what I’ve felt. I didn’t passed that exam. I will be an irregular student then. Meaning, I will be one semester delayed and I will graduate on October 2014 instead of March 2014. To be an aspiring doctor, this is really a great delay. I will wait for a year for me to enter my medicine proper that will be on June 2015.

I was not sad when I knew that I didn’t pass. Because I really want to have a vacation! haha! and I really want to join our youth camp on our church and especially, I will be able to attend our youth fellowship every Saturday! That’s the advantage when I become an irregular student. But if I become a regular student, I guess I can’t do that because my schedule will be so full again thinking that the class started April 2013.

I know God wanted me to grow on His Church that’s why he did this. I was happy then and having a schedule so light, I can do anything that I want unlike when I was still an regular that I only want to do is sleep because of my sleepless nights. Most especially, I can concentrate on my other subjects since I only have 4 subjects instead of 7. See? it is totally good!

And I’m so happy because I manage to meet some new friends that are also a Christians! I’m so happy to be with them.

Truly God made a wonderful plan for me! because of his Amazing Love!

Jay Chou: Breaking the Ice

So why am I blogging now? Hmm simply because I wanna share how did I came to know the one and only Jay Chou.

First. It all started when I’m finding another artist that I can listen too..

I admit, I somehow hate Jay at first because I’m a huge fan of Show Luo. He’s my ultimate bias when it comes to mandopop world. I didn’t really know jay at that time but every time I look at the any music awards, I always see the name of Jay where he always get the most all of the awards, because I’m hoping that Show will get the most of the awards. And it really irritates me because I always read the name “Jay Chou” and it really annoys me alot! And I wonder why he always get the major wards while show is only few.

And there is a English forum of Show that I’m also a member of it and I’ve a thread about the comparison of Rashomon (show’s 10th album) and The Era of jay… of course all the people including me supported show in his album.. other people commented that “The Era of jay is not as good as his past album..” so they always go with the Rashomon of show because they think it have many styles and genre in terms of the melody. At that time, I was curious about the “the era thing” and I’ve listened to it……..once. And I don’t know what song was that I’ve listened but it is kinda rap.( I think that’s kua shi dai) So I told myself……”What? this Jay Chou always get the major awards and has very weird style of music!” then I’ve stayed always with Show.

Then the Mr. J channel came out.. and all the Show fans were eager to watch the premiere of that because of the “reuniting thing” that I don’t know about in their past.(i think of the double J thing that others think that Show and Jay have a misunderstandings before because show take part on jolin’s sideΒ Moreover, I simply watch the episode for the sake of Show.. then…..then…. I really loved Show and Jay’s chemistry in hosting.. and I can see that there were really friends!! Because they spilled secrets on one another and have lot’s of memories.. So I think this jay chou is not bad at all. And Show really supported Jay always!!! that he even came at his The Era concert in Taipei arena!!! and I saw that Show was seated where jay’s family and friends are. So.. I didn’t hate Jay anymore πŸ˜€

On my Christmas break last Dec 2010, i told my friend to recommend other mandopop artist so I will have a wider range of knowledge in terms in mandopop world. And she told me to listen to Jay Chou.. and she gave me her favorite album of jay which is the “on the run”, “November’s chop” and the latest which is the era… then I told her, alright, I will listen to it… and she let me watch the “Wo Bu Pei (I’m Not Worthy) because that is her favorite jay song. Then I somehow didn’t digested it because I’m still stuck with show, and Alice Tseng was also a lead girl of Show’s mv… so I made comparisons again. And the song “head over heels” by show, have a same plot of Jay’s Wo Bu Pei.. so I didn’t like it.

After downloading on the run album…….I listened to it and it was Cai Hong (rainbow) that I’ve heard….and OH MY! OH MY! OH MY!!!!! jay’s have a very nice voice!!!! very soothing and high, cute voice πŸ˜€ and also when I’ve heard “cowboy is very busy” It was actually very FUN and have a country feeling πŸ˜€ and different genre! then I told my mom to compare the voice of Jay and show.. then she said, she liked Jay’s voice!!! haha.

After that, I became curious about his latest album at that time which is the era.. and I found it good!! and i was indulge at his raps and intricate music style πŸ˜€ and known only at that time that he composed everything that he sang. And I little by little I admire him a lot, discovering many things about him was exciting πŸ˜€

in January 2011, there’s the green hornet.. and i watch it because Jay Chou is there and my other friends said that they will watch the movie because of Jay, so I watch it.. and also, I’m kinds attached to his songs already that I give it a try watching TGH. and……and…. it was ultimately fun!!! and his action skills were good. So from that time, I research a lot about him and found one of his concerts a fancam in Vancouver…….and i saw the opening and it was awesome!!!! the I told my friend, if she know where i can watch his the concert online.. and she told me just watch on the youtube.. and luckily… i found it πŸ˜€

I was totally enjoying the concert because it was great!!! and almost all of the song that he sang were my favorites. So I said to myself…..”I need to have a copy of that concert! I want it badly……” because jay was very professional singer in comes to stage and I really loved the 3D effects! and I’ve influence my sister to love jay too! and so we watch his movie secret and it was ROMANTIC!! it was really good. and Jay, is very talented because he wrote the story itself and with that, my admiration to him really grows!

i think, my 2011 year, were full of Jay’s fandom πŸ˜€ because slowly by slowly…. I’m collecting all his stuffs πŸ˜€ then I watched Kung Fu dunk (very funny and cute jay) and initial D. My dad become fond of jay’s movies too! and some of his songs hahaha! I think it’s bad that I’ve influence them haha!

Really…… Jay is one of the person that is very talented πŸ˜€ I love his shyness and his love for pink…………NOT!
up to now, i can’t imagine his thing for pink stuffs πŸ˜€ Oh well I still love him though….. and about his dance steps………….NOT πŸ˜€ haha but it’s okay for me! his dance steps were a bit funny for me.

Not to mention his dimples!!!!!!!!!! I love to stare at that!
And that’s Jay for me πŸ˜€

Just a Collection

I never know that someday I will be able to have a collection. I’m just a mere student and at first, my problem back then was how am I going to buy my favorite album/merchandise of my favorite artist.

Just like the others, I’m a fan girl. It started way back when I was in my 3rd year high school. I love to watch many Asian drama especially when my favorite artist are the one who are starring in. Anyone who are crazy in Taiwan dramas? yes! I’m one of them.

The moment when I saw Barbie Xu on our television, I wonder what was that drama? Then, I saw her partner Show Lo/Alan Lo and from then on my life suddenly fell on being a fan girl and become obsessed on listening mando-pop music or Chinese music. Even though I don’t understand, the melody is very catchy and for me it is way better than Korean pop (in musicality sense)

From then on, I got a chance to know my most favorite artist/musician in their country and that is Jay Chou. Knowing him have another story, so I might as well have a separate blog about him.

My collection from various artist are really expensive. I never thought that in one year, I got to spend for as much as 3000 just to buy their music album or movies. It is kind of hard to get their album in our country in a sense that they were not popular as Koreans on our country.. so my option is just to buy on the internet.

Welcome to my collections XD

All from Show Lo

Yes, I got my Jay Chou perfume from his J Moment Music Video Album Compilation

I do have other collections.. but I think it will for my next blog XD

So if love Jay Chou too.. let’s have a talk πŸ™‚
