A new turn in life.

There is a real difference between the world of school and the world of work.

I graduated at the end of October 2015. After a long journey for 5 years, I am finally, officially a doctor! ...Sometimes the title does feel so heavy a burden given how empty my head is. But anyway, it marks the end of painful days of studying, scoring, assignments, exams, and everything else. It sounded impossible previously; I looked back at my posts here at this journal, how exhausting and stressed I was during this journey. I was not even sure about my final exams. Unending gratitude for everyone (and God) who supported me throughout those years.

Despite no longer titled a student, it doesn't necessarily mean I can practice my knowledge freely. I have yet to gain my official license, which can only be obtained after I pass one-year internship period at a remote area. Currently still in the process of working on that department: registration, collecting information and testimonies regarding various area, and getting ready in general. I can only hope I won't pick the wrong choice.

Besides enjoying my free time by trying to write in this journal again, browsing around at forums, replaying Persona 3 Portable for the only-God-knows-how-many-times-has-it-been times, trying to play Persona 3 FES but waiting for the USB-joystick Mom is going to send soon, watching more and more Korean drama, watching another Chinese drama, and just sleeping when I have any time left after doing all those things, I am working as a research assistant at campus. Ophthalmology is one of the fields I'm interested to study even more (though it is actually half-surgery, duh!) so I am quite happy I can get a work here. I had to send my applications few times to different people until I was finally accepted. That hit me quite hard because I didn't imagine the world of work is that competitive. It's been a great experience, though. From handling samples, taxes for the honors, and working on monthly assessment of patients' treatment. Fun work is fun.

I also recently found out the lovely feeling of making your own money. That pushed me as far as making my own PayPal account and thinking about what I can do to bring more income. Posting is one possible option, but I'm still experimenting with what I can do. I need ideas!

/me goes to that place where all brilliant ideas are produced

Oh my gosh! I'm so proud of you!!!! That is so awesome!

I also don't know how many times I've played Personal 3... not to mention P3P... I love that game. XD

Where I live doctors are in hot demand so they get hired like instantly. Oh, my bosses daughter is in college for Ophthalmology. She seems to like it quite a bit. :3

It's really nice to make your own money. When I got my first paycheck I was so ecstatic, I didn't know what to do... but kinda... since it all went to paying bills. xD

Your welcome! :D
Ahaha, me too. I always play as the female now since it's cool being able to be a girl and woo the guys. xD Plus I've played the male side so many times on the original PS2 version.
Yea, eyes are pretty darn small. I think I would be too nervous to work on them too. T^T
Awesome, that makes things a lot easier that way if it's all in one account. :D

Shinjiro is my favorite. :3 I was so glad you could date him in this game. Though it still made me sad when he wasn't a playable character, but at least he didn't die. :D

I had makeup get in my eye once. It stung so bad that I avoid it as much as I can. I will wear it on some occasions though, but I wear very light amounts. Lol!

Lol, yep, I sure do! :D Akihiko is pretty cute. Yea, as much as I liked him, he wasn't that good in battle. He was really strong, but kinda threw off the balance at times for me too.

That is awesome! Good luck with mastering it! :D I probably should learn how to get better at it. Maybe I wouldn't poke my eye so many times. :P

I'm the same way, I'm just too lazy to do it. I wish I had some tips to give. Sadly, I have nothing to share in that regard. The last time I saw my sister she said she was going to practice with make up so perhaps next time I see her she can show me some stuff and then I can tell you. :3
