A Week Without Zyrtec

I went to see the dermatologist Tuesday at the UIC outpatient hospital. My last visit was a month ago and they recommended that I see an allergist to see what else could be affecting my eczema. I totally would have made the appointment, but it just slipped my mind these past thirty days. I mean, taking two classes (science and English I might add) on top research, work, and volunteering is intense!

I had an exam yesterday and we got our results back today during discussion. The average was around 60-65. Sucks. I got a 79, which is a good score if you compare it to the average…but I was hoping for better. Then again, that test was like a slap to the face! I blanked out right at the beginning and just flipped each page until I got to the end. Only after starting from the beginning again I got a light bulb moment and things were good until the middle section, and then after that it was good. Ah well, gotta keep my head up. I’ve been doing well on everything else so it should balance out. I still can’t believe there’s only three weeks left. Soon I will get to enjoy my two-week break before the fall semester starts. Lovely.

I love Chinese motivation.

I guess there’s not too much going on at the moment since I was studying my butt off for the exam this past week/weekend. Tonight, I will drown chemistry out of my mind with a Taiwanese drama! I remember watching a few episodes of it two years ago…but school happens and you don’t have time for those things. It’s called Hi, My Sweetheart featuring Rainie Yang! She’s a very popular Taiwanese singer and she is so cute. Her character in the drama is totally hilarious because she’s some crazy goth girl that no one likes, and then this nerdy kid comes out of nowhere and wants to befriend her because he grew up never having friends. I love it.

I’m so happy it’s going to be Friday tomorrow! I don’t really have any plans, but on Saturday I got invited to a BBQ dinner with the doctor who is in charge of the research that I do in my volunteer work at Rush (not the research I do on UIC campus) and it will be with the other volunteers. We are allowed to invite our family so my parents will come. I hope it won’t be awkward.

I don’t know if you noticed, but I posted two songs (well, videos) from Imogen Heap’s new CD: Ellipse. It’s so good! =) Check it out. I’m listening to them right now.

Yeesh. I am seriously sneezing up a storm! I did make an appointment with the allergist if you were wondering, and it is this coming Tuesday. They told me that I am not allowed to use anti-histamines for a whole week! Ahhh allergies are so awful sometimes. Sure it’s better than having cancer, but it is quite annoying! :(

OH! By the way, the proofs came in for the t-shirts and looks like we’ll be getting them in a week! As a brief reminder for those of you who do not know, my brother and I are attempting to start a clothing company. I would have liked to have started in May or June…but maybe the back to school season will get us some sales. I shall make sure to post a link to the website when I finish creating the layout and inputting items. The designs will make you smile, regardless of our awesome logo (hehe…you’ll see). ♥

About Milie Fang, Biological Sciences / Pre-medicine

I am a senior and an acclaimed workaholic. While I like to keep busy academically, I really enjoy the simple pleasures of hanging out with friends and family, playing video games, or listening to music. When life seems to go well, allergies and eczema like to butt in and make me miserable. I hope to go into medicine so that I can have a better understanding of skin and the immune system to help myself, and to also help others facing the same problems I have faced since I was three.
