Getting busy again...

Hi everyone, after relaxing and doing absolutely nothing for the first two weeks of school, karma has finally come around and is kicking me hard. Have two quizzes and 1 midterm next week... not to mention a final project and a take-home midterm that are due soon. (don't be fooled by "take-home", it usually means harder and more time-consuming)

Anyways... I volunteered at the exotic animal department of our teaching hospital. I had to wake up at 6am every single day, but it's totally worth it. I got to tube feed a tortoise, give subcutaneous fluids and injections to a guinea pig, administer meds and enema to a cockatoo, give subcutaneous fluid to a red tail hawk, and prepare food for a golden eagle!!!!! Jealous? hehehe..... It seems so fun to be able to treat such a large variety of species, but it will take a lot of experience and knowledge to know what are the unique characteristics and needs of each specie.

I also got to gave a horse a injection via IV cather and an intramuscular shot of Pro-Pen-G. Giving the shot alone was scary enough since I had to stand right next to the most powerful part of horse - the hind legs, but I didn't learn until later that giving penicillin G procaine shots can be extremely dangerous. Procain can go into the small capillaries, go back to the heart, and go straight to the brain where it can cause adverse reaction. Horses can act really hysterial for some time, like kicking around and jumping. They get so hyperexcited that they can fall and break their own legs..... so let's try not to imagine what the horse could have done to a human like me. So phew... I'm glad I successfully gave IM shot to a horse for the first time and walked out of that stall safely.

Needless to say, I'm so enjoying vet school right now. There are some classes that are heh... but overall, I'm falling in love with it more and more. I think I found my soul mate. LOL.

Anyways.... I did a 40 beauty question tag today. Feel free to do one yourself and I really want to hear everyone else's answers.

Still really liking the circle lenses I got few weeks ago. The blue is so rich and mysterious.

Alright, that's it for now..... Gotta catch up on school work. =)

Dresses from Hot Miami Styles

I tend to be a little bit dubious when it comes to ordering clothing online. I'm 5'8". Although my torso is decently slender, I have a big bone structure. So sometimes the shoulder might not fit very well or the sleeves may be too short. As for my legs, there's just no way to order stuff without first trying them on. So I've been browsing cloths and shoes on online stores for a while. I always put stuff in my cart, but never had the gut to actually place an order. Just because in case they didn't fit, sending them back is a big hassle.

Few weeks ago, I was given a chance to try out some cloth pieces from I've heard about their website from other youtube gurus, and I wasn't sure if I could fit into their cloths as well as their models. Choosing the sizes was a bit difficult, since I wasn't sure if I should just get my normal size (medium) or a size up.

In the end, I decided to get all dresses since summer is almost here and I've been drooling to get my hands on some new dresses. These are all in Large, and they were surprisingly comfortable and fitted.

Again, don't let those voluptuous models mislead you that you must have the same body shapes to look good in the shirt/dress/pants. Always order a size up if you are not sure and let your own style shine through. =)
