Whatsup y'all :)

First and foremost, let me say that this post was scheduled. But I'll be back in no time to respond to all your lovely comments. Y'all make my day anyday, anytime.
Have I mentioned how great you are lately? *.*

*Now trying to take a seat*  LOL

This was at my church yesterday 

So today I'm just going to be talking. I don't do this is a lot, but let's give it a shot 'cause that's just the way I  feel.
How is everyone? How was your weekend?

A little about mine and my week.
I had to do these medical examinations for school. This semester we have to deal with kids so we had to do a series of tests, more than the ones we usually do, that is.
Boy! Tres enervating! Especially since the hospitals/labs for almost all the tests just had to be situated in different parts of the city (like completely opposite worlds apart). I had to travel from one part to the other and I still don't understand why it so happened that they couldn't just be close to each other. One of them, I still strongly want to refer to it as the outskirts abeg!  For the first time in my life I had to spend 50mins straight in a bus for a journey within the city and another 50 back. I looked for how to navigate some of the routes but really, that was the easiest way to it. It's good though 'cause I got to view a different part of the city.

Talking about the tests. I think it's not enough sef, they can like to look for more tests. I mean how can our lives be easy without them? Jeez! Hep B, HIV, Lues serology test, dermatology, blood pressure, xray imaging, throat culture, fecal culture, overall health staus.. Na wah! That is all my body o. They had to check what's even inside my stomach before I can start my clinical practice?! LOL

The fecal culture test wasn't funny at all. Guess what? It was the one I had to make the 50 mins bus time for. Imagine carrying my stool on me for 1hr sigh!

Another funny one was the Lues serology test, the lady kept hearing "HIV".
Me:  Ma'am, I know for some reasons, you think it just had to be HIV, but I'm here for Lues serology, do you mind? *Insert straight face here*
(It just had to be HIV, abi with my skin colour, what else would it be? hiss!)
I'm so happy I won't have to do any of these tests again. Hopefully! Not funny at all.
I  heard we'll have more tests during the practice tho, but I think if you could meet these ones, I think that one shouldn't be a problem. I guess it'll be more like physical examinations of some sort. I'm just wondering what would happen if someone was positive for any of the tests. Drop out or what?  After how many years of studies? 'cause these practices are very important for us.
Anyway, I'm so happy I was able to finish everything, I met all the requirements and can start my practices soon. I might be updating you guys on that one too. It's always an experience.

Ok and I must tell you about this other experience. I went to this restaurant with a friend and he's very enthusiastic about food, so I just felt like I could really bank on his suggestions.
Boy, when the food came, I saw something that was shaped like a nice flower. It was really beautiful.  I took a bite and then some more, and just afterwards it came like a real light bulb moment, "that's an octopus right?"
And he answers very calmly "yea"
"No! I'm not supposed to be eating an octopus" hahahaha
Anyway, one more feather to my cap, what can I say? At least I've eaten an octopus.*fanning myself*
Next stop, a frog or maybe a snake :P

LOL I'm not sure I can try it again though. I won't forget the feeling I had when I got back. I had to immediately start 'googling' the pictures to familiarize myself with the real image again.


Smh! Yea you guessed right! It was not a totally pleasant feeling tho :)

Finally, It's been raining heavily here. I'm not in my best moments, somebody remember to say something nice ok? LOL just kidding, don't mind me, it's not that serious.

It felt so good coming around to talk like this. I'll sure do it again.
Don't forget to tell me how you like these sort of posts tho ;)

Have a great week everyone
