Last time during foundation time, I was super nerdy. Just ask my friends and roommate. I used to stay in the room 24/7 and I only eat tapao by roommate. Crazy right?
I only step out of my room to go toilet and lectures. I don't even skip lectures even though they were super boring. And that was probably how I managed to do well in my studies.
Now....Semester by semester, I got more and more off mood. Indeed I do feel education is important, I still want to do well. But it is not everything. Getting at 4.0 is not a life achievement. Like how those who were smarter than Bill Gates now works under Bill Gates.
It does make me lazier to study, but also motivates me to find life. Because life isn't about everything in this Uni. I managed to go out and spend my time knowing more people. I got to go out and hunt for all the good food.
It is true, life is short and we just need to experiences everything while we still have the time.
Now 3 more semesters before graduation, not including my internship...I am thinking that why some people can just study their asses off. If your life ends tomorrow and your whole life is just books, your life is misery.
Even Einstein was not as good as told, he probably had a nice live with many women around him. Try finding out bout Einstein if you don't get what I am trying to say.
I look at my books and ask, why am I doing this? For my grades? For my future?
Anyways, for the past 4 days I had been doing nothing but eating, playing games, sleeping, more eating, games and sleep. The lecturers and not doing so well, so I don't think I will do well too. Somehow it just reflects. I am not good in studying on my own, because this is not really my interest.
I guess this is where someone will tell me to follow my dream?
A week till my first paper. And I have 2 papers in 1 day, again!! For the 3rd or 4th semester in a row, crappp. I mind as well laugh my ass off again like last night. I thought own aim in life is to live happily? wtf
People say during exam period your mind goes a little bit haywire and this is when suicidal rate is the highest. What am I talking about? Heck. No, I am not going to suicide. Thank you.
Update: friday steamboat, monday potluck, tuesday bbq. when to study? I live to eat and sleep. oh yeahhhh. Probably should call my Dad, tell him and eating well and living well. He is always worried I don't get enough food
No life is perfect.
If He faced it strong, why can't it?
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
For those who read my past post about my skin disease (here) would have known that there is no cure because it is an inheritance disease. However, research is still being done to find the best soothing method and possibly the way to prevent this disease from being passed down to the next generations.
The last time I went back home, which was around 2 weeks ago I did some findings on the best was to sooth icththyosis and I came over this website on "Gloves in a Bottle". It is a type of moisturizing lotion for very dry skin. After reading the reviews, I decided to try out one 8oz bottle. FYI I am currently using St.Ives Hydrating Vitamin E lotion which looks like this (I wanted to seal the pictures from Google images but I thought good bloggers take their own pictures so yeayy! ehem2):
And it had been serving me well. The lotion is very good in moisturizing but for exfoliation I need to scrub my body everyday. I previously used loofah everyday but after knowing that it will be too harsh to scrub the skin everyday, I bought a body and face scrub:
Though I do use it for my face more often than my body cause the beads are too small to exfoliate icththyosis dead skin cells. I only use it when I need to take a quick shower. Previously I also used St. Ives Intensive healing lotion. It has good moisturizing properties but I felt that I get darker after using it. Maybe it was just my feeling or maybe it has the tendency to react with the UV light.
So here I would like to review on "Gloves in a Bottle" which arrived a week ago but I only collected my parcels yesterday. The product is imported from the US. They mentioned that they distributed the products to their distributors in Malaysia, mostly pharmacies but the sizes are limited. It would be a hassle to go from pharmacies to pharmacies and I am pretty busy lately so I opt for delivery till my doorstep, I mean to my Uni.
Here is the box! Super secure hard box is used!
The postage itself was more than RM20. yikes!
Okayyyy so the truth is after I paid for it using my Mum's credit card,
only then I knew they are selling it in Malaysia's pharmacy. But then even so I was not bothered.
How much time and fuel will be wasted just to go find them.
Mind you I am living in a "jungle".
Everyday you will be annoyed by the noises of monkeys and wild boars. T__T
I bought the 8oz bottle, the smallest if I am not mistaken.
You can buy the samples only but I guess it is not worth the postage fee.
The price of one 8oz bottle is $14.95 so it is around RM45.
I checked online that in Malaysia it is around RM55+.
I paid around RM75 including postage from US.
It came with the reviews, you can read those online from their website.
As promised if you buy any of the bottles, of any size, you get free samples.
Which was why I said it is not worth just getting the samples.
One of these sample cost $2.
If you check their website, they also come in 1 gallon bottles.
This is because people having skin disease like me,
of having eczema need lots and lots of moisturizers.
I have 4 bottles of St.Ives lotion beside me right now.
And 2 body shop lotions, 2 Garnier lotions. Ehehehe :)
This is how the bottle looks like!
But I think for my skin, this bottle is too small.
Like I mentioned, I probably need the 1 gallon bottle.
Even my St.Ives can only last me around 4 months per bottle.
And you can see that it is more watery and dilute (right),
compared to the St.Ives lotion (left)
Which is why I felt that it evaporates faster and you need to reapply more frequent.
I am currently just using this before bedtime.
For daytime I still use my St.Ives Hydrating Vitamin E lotion.
Perhaps I will do a review on how much it affects my skin. But we'll see. I am not so fond of showing my skin condition. I just had a major breakout. Or maybe it was the bed mites, dust mites, mosquitoes etc. Arrghhhh~
