Just came home from dinner at Bluetrain with the lovelies who will be going to Italy with me :) So excited!
So here’s the list of delights which got me through this topsy turvy week.
Tracey: She’s beautiful. She’s hilarious. She’s one of a kind. Getting a call from her was what I really needed. She let me vent; she made me laugh; she made me feel at ease.
First plaster cast: I put on my first plaster this week! I plastered my partner’s forearm and graffitti-ed it with “By Leanne =)”. Teehehee I’m such a kid :p I also got plastered which was interesting because I’ve never broken anything before so have never worn a cast. I only wore it for 10 minutes and found it annoying– I can see why patients can get fed up with it. The machine to cut the cast is pretty cool too. Sounds and looks freakin’ scary with it’s jagged blades but won’t even put a scratch on you!
Orthopaedics: People say it’s a “boy’s club” but I loved it! The ortho reg’s are hilarious! They are so easy-going and are definitely the “jocks” in the “doctor social hierarchy”. Haha~ During clinics they encouraged us to grab files and go see as many patients as we can. One of the reg’s even gave us tips on how to be cool if we decide to be orthopaedic surgeons. Eg. “Wearing gloves to plaster is really uncool. Ortho’s get down and dirty!” Hahaha xD
Striking up conversation with a total stranger on the train: The most amazing thing happened to me the other day! I saw this girl standing on the train platform and she just had great style & an awesome looking camera dangling off her shoulder. We got on the same train and she sat right next to me. I turned to her and said “I really like your camera!” which progressed into a convo about photography, film, a little cute French slash Japanese inspired store in Flinders Lane, Med, Urban planning and a zillion other things. We just “clicked”! It was glorious… she was like my Art twin! Every artist, every gallery, every website she mentioned I knew and browse in my spare time. I found out where she got her beautiful camera and her stylish Paddington-bear-like jacket from and since she’s studying Urban planning I also got to find out some secret projects planned for the suburb I lived in. The amazing things you learn and gain by talking to a stranger! :D
Other loves — Hot orthopaedic reg! – he has the most intense eyes and he definitely makes 7am meetings interesting, hehe; Jason’s Lady Gaga themed 21st Birthday– can’t wait!; getting compliments on my hair; karma – sometimes I really lub you when you come at the right time!; David Choi’s “Won’t Even Start” — a song about seeing the person who broke your heart walking down the street; Naruto Shippuuden ep 108; talking Anime with my 7 & 8 year old students – HAHA; planning my Italian trip itinery; chatting with Nat in the common room; talking Art; getting my MCR over and done with! (& doing well) :D; discussing what powers I would have if I were a superhero or supervillain :F; boys who clean up really well and finally all your comments– sometimes they really bring a smile to my face after a long day — thank-you!!! ♥
I have a 21st Birthday tomorrow and am feeling rather nervous/anxious because I might face an old memory tomorrow. David Choi’s “Won’t Even Start” song comes to mind.
