It has been a different week. A break from the routine means a touch of anxiety. Yes, I know I've always been anxious. In fact I am a very anxious person. Anxiety is not something that is always bad. It can do good, even though it gives you palpitations.
The good side of it, it forces me to get as prepared as I can for something, and I always put my safety first. So, there would be no worries for my mother that I would break my neck or engaged in any dangerous activity.
Now the flip side of the coin, not good... the most obvious adverse effect is anxiety causes you (i.e me) unnecessary worries. I got nervous for unbelievable reason. I still remembered an occasion where my friend just can't believe I tremble while practising in clinical skills room. Hellooo~ it's just a practice. Not even a test, let alone an exam. Ah, if I were to list the situation that can sent my heart electrical activity to complete bizarre... you'd be fast asleep before even near the end of the list. Exaggerating, am I? I am not trying to convince anyone here. Just letting my (I don't know) go.
This is the first half of our 2-week Psychiatry and Psychology Applied to Medicine + MedLine Ethics + a bit of related Pharmacology Course. It went on well. Very well I have to say.
One good news that I would like to share here, I got my first real assignment. To make it even more thrilling, it contribute 10% to our final year Psychiatry marks. I actually got really excited. Though it is not easy (I'm still struggling to keep the ball rolling) I am still hold on to my determination to accomplish something that can put a smile on my face when I recall it in the future.

Here's the secret: I'm not particularly looking forward to sacrifice my highly-savoured weekend, but I really want to break some more routine this time while holding tight to my heart, don't break.
