Sunday


Brick Lane is wonderful- there are so many shops with the most brilliant, most oddest clothes. I think I saw a Barbie doll's head glued to one dress along with some sweet wrappers. Lots of people were dressed extravagantly in vintage fur collars and long woolen capes, armed with the air of confidence to pull it off. Sunday Market was as full of goat skulls, Banksy prints and overpriced vintage as usual with everyone shoving each other around- bliss! Haha not really, you don't want massive crowds when shopping.

Highlights


My friend and I kept seeing this guy with bright blue hair and full face makeup around; we saw him at most five times. We most likely see lots of people again and again, but he was just particularly distinctive. I also saw this man wearing high heels, I looked at him in adoration because guys in high heels are really cute. Also: free diet coke! When me my friend were having takoyaki next to this overflowing garbage can, which was lovely, this diet coke guy came over and started picking up all the cans from the ground, winked at us and said he was having a lovely weekend. What a fun job, sounds like a career to keep an eye out for in the future.

School is school


I'm doing well in my subjects apart from core maths. I'm someone whose grades tend to correlate with how much the teacher likes me. Childish, but that's how it is; I do well in chemistry where my teacher doesn't really know who we are, whereas in core, the teacher consistently asks me 'Do you understand me, Trina? How are you two doing in the back bench there?' and makes too much eye-contact. (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ And she cracks jokes which we have to awkwardly smile at. Over-friendly teachers: bane of my life.

I'm going to share my best friend's maths tutor, since my current one basically does my homework for me, and he's not even terribly brilliant at that. He took two hours to do three fairly simple trigonometry questions last Thursday, so I'm breaking up with him, academically-speaking.

Tanzania


I'm going to Tanzania this Saturday! I was originally going to be in the internal med department, but I've done that in England already. Lots of looking at charts and chatting with the nurses, so I requested to be put in surgery. My friend went on the India trip and managed a few hours in surgery. She warned me about the cauterizing smell: essentially, the smell of burning flesh is terrible. I'm not a vegan who gets sick at the sight of meat, but I'm pretty sure this won't be an unfamiliar odour by the end of my trip. Because of this trip I've had to do next week's homework and test all by this week, but it'll be worth it! Unlike my friend I won't be going with someone I already know, so it'll be an adventure (not really, I've added all my housemates on facebook so fingers crossed it won't be an awkward turtle situation)

*I had my Hepatitis A and Typhoid injections today and my arm still hurts. The nurse said she'd included a travel pack which had pictures of things like a toilet roll on it, so I could point that out to locals when in need. Haha I'm sure that'll come in handy

Games


Has anyone played Kumo Lumo from the app store?

It's absolutely adorable. The Simpsons tapping game is fun for the first few hours, but then it becomes yet another 'social' game.
This game section is pathetic, but I'll have time for gaming next summer when all my exams are over.

++ There are so many new blogs, I'll read all of them after working my way through my stack of work. If there's already so much work to be done in Year 13, the workload at Uni must be unbelievable.

p.s: what would you do if you think you saw a crime happen? seriously, we think we saw something happen on Sunday night and I can't stop thinking about it. If I were a Rugby player I would have barreled over and be a hero, but we were in heels. What on earth can anyone do in heels?!

For 10 days :} If I don't come bouncing back on VuTales after that, it most likely means I have malaria.

Are you taking malaria pills? Those things are nasty! I remember my mom grinding them up into my food when I visited India.
Make sure to put dem mosquito nets up if there's any sign of them

Malaria's the least of your worries. Africa will be an adventure though. Stay safe and have fun.

++Trip to Africa sounds amazing. @__@ Aaaand interning in surgery? That's crazy. In 9th grade? Really? Or am I misinterpreting that.

I'm really excited! I've always wanted to go to Africa :3 9th grade...? I'm 17, that's Year 13 here. Do I genuinely come across as someone incredibly young? *shamed at writing skills*

Ohhhhhhhhhhh wooooooooooops. I misread your previous blog AHURPADERP. I was wondering why the writing was significantly different from a 13-year old teenager. My baaad. xD
