So on Sunday evening, Cecilia and I rolled out to a cinema nearby to have a night free of uni anxiety!
Ended up watching this:
Step Up and Magic Mike sounded like something light and fun, so we went with Magic Mike that night.
As for the movie itself, I guess it was kind of fun to watch, but I was not impressed with how it ended really abruptly. Like there was no proper closure to the story. We both kind of felt blah as we were exiting the cinema…but I guess it’s just what it is, and there were some funny parts too…so it was a fun time. The act of watching a movie with a friend itself just makes it fun anyway! We got a big popcorn to share, munched away, watching comedy…that can’t be not fun, right?
So yeah, we thought for one night, we’d just forget all about our worries and enjoy ourselves, but we actually ended up talking A LOT about uni anyway, while sipping on our hot drinks and indulging into our sundaes at a local cafe after the movie.
It was actually good that we got all of our worries out of our hearts and talked about every possible uni issue that we could be cradling our heads for.
There are times when talking about problems will only make you worry irrationally, but the conversation made us feel a lot lighter in the end of the day – realising that you are not the only one struggling with issues definitely helps.
Also, we were really honest about our problems and opinions. I always prefer honestly, no matter how harsh the truth may be, so it was great talking everything through that night.
We also discussed about our plans for how to survive through the rest of the year and pass everything. I’d say this was the most constructive part of the night, because Cecilia told me she was going to go to uni a hour or two before the first morning lecture to study at the library, and I decided to join her too! So these couple of days, I’ve been studying at the library for about an hour before heading off to the lecture theatre. I am definitely a morning person and can concentrate the best during the AM, so I’m hoping that this will pay off as I prepare for the exams.
And even better, I got to fit in an early morning Pilates session from 6:30 this morning! It was freezing when I left home, and my fingers and toes were still pretty cold even after the class, but it was definitely worth waking up at 4:30am for. The sun rose and its rays begun to filter in through the windows as we were working out, and it was the most amazing feeling to have those first rays of light shine across my chest during the roll-ups.
I have a feeling this week might be a great week for me physically as well; I biked to and from the hospital clinical skills session and it really got my body warm! I have terrible circulation so it’s difficult for me to warm up even while exercising, but cycling through those hills definitely got my hams and quads working. That followed by today’s Pilates sort of balanced things out and made be feel totally refreshed
Anyway, that’s pretty much all I have to share for today.
Have a great rest of the week!
