862: Terribly missing familiar faces and familiar places

I planned to go to the hospital today but ended up sleeping in. Lonely isn't a feeling I have experienced for quite some time now. Terribly missing familiar faces and familiar places.


I have 28 more days left before flying back to Johor Bahru.

I was in the operating theatre today drawing up medication and preparing the tray for the next case. It was all fun until I cut myself while trying to open an ampoule of Fentanyl. I think the manufacturers should come up with a better design. And I'm not saying that because I cut myself today. I've always thought that ampoules are the worst design ever to have medication in. Other than that, I'm looking forward to spending the weekend in the hospital as well. If I keep myself busy, I won't be thinking about other stuff.

860: Where is "home"?

So many things have happened in the last couple of weeks. Kyle & I went to Sydney earlier this month and it was one of the best trips ever. I'm going to post more about the trip once I go back to Johor Bahru next month because I accidentally left the SD card in Kyle's laptop and he just left to Johor Bahru this morning. 
Towards my last week in Melbourne I got really sick with a cold and we weren't really able to go to the places we wanted to go despite having rented the car. It was such a waste. And the weather was pretty bad too. It was raining the entire day for a few days in a row. 
I'm currently in a small town bordering Victoria and New South Wales for my final rotation. Initially I was really looking forward to it. But ever since I came here I've been wanting to go back. It just doesn't feel right and its so frustrating because I can't pin point to what the real reason is. And this is my first night sleeping at my place here. I was staying with


I received an email from Malaysia Airlines earlier today saying that my flight from Melbourne to Johor Bahru has changed. I feel like this always happens to me. Even when I came to Melbourne, they changed it. Booking the ticket until the flight landed was such a nightmare. I emailed a complaint in June and have yet to receive a response. I'm so fed up with them. I've honestly had so many bad experiences with Malaysia Airlines I can't even.
I can't believe I'll be moving again in 10 days. I don't even know what to expect this time. Hmm.
