Time flies. It’s only been a week, but I know if I’m not too careful, I’ll wake up to find that it’s already been five years.
I’ll make this update quick. In theory I should study for our first ever exam next Friday, and I also have a writing job lined up for tonight (freelance earning FTW!).
Still proving to be the literal best group!
Before the start of classes, we had a last-minute and hope-fuelled outing around Ortigas. Only half of us came, but it was still cool. We got to watch Suicide Squad (entertaining movie, by the way), eat good Japanese food at SumoSam, and hang out in Moonshine.
I collected a lot of good memories that night. I’m glad I was the only one really sober, haha!
There were a few other hangouts here and there: a before-everything-goes-to-hell /Mythical 7/ night and a spontaneous its-raining-hell night, both at M’s place. (THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HARBORING US!)
But the highlight of this life: BEST G12OUP in our white uniforms!
(Are we not gorgeous? Brilliant? Literally shining bright?)
I’m screaming, the photos by X look so good!!!
(I also have a bunch of stickers made and in progress because Telegram is God’s gift to the millenial messenging community.)
I’m really, really having a hard time with the 8AM to 5PM sched. I can wake up early just fine (thanks to having a roommate plus the fact that it’s only the first week of school), but sometime around 10AM and around 3PM I get super sleepy.
I’ve resolved to bring apple slices to wake up. The internet says it works, so I’m pretty much gonna do it.
But in terms of what we’re studying, we’ve got our first module entitled Principles and Perspectives. It’s basically laying down the foundations for a biopsychosocial approach to healthcare, i.e. culture, society, psychology and many other factors aside from the biomedical matter when it comes to health.
It has been fun. It’s also always a struggle of deciding where to sit.
The day I sat in the back was the day I slept for two hours total. Life is so hard.
And anyway, I’ve been enjoying the whole process of fixing my school supplies, organizing my study materials, and so on –basically everything except the study part.
I sent this to E(/G? lol) ages ago when I was still fixing up my side of the condo. But the moodboard/whiteboard is cuter now!! And the desk will definitely be more messed up in the future. Continue reading “ASMPH MD/MBA: Week 1”
