my day in the ward

Today is not my best day ever. I've been struggling with my fever and sore throat, but today was the climax of my ill health.

About 2 o’clock, I went to the UiTM Clinic at Block M. My uncle drove us there since I was too weak to walk there. Then again, no one in a sick condition with the right mind would walk to Block M.

The nurse reprimanded me for wearing a round neck, but she was even more surprised at my temperature: 39.4C. After consulting with the doctor, I was left in the male ward with another patient.

They inserted water in my vein through the IV pole. That was my first time having a drip. I think I laid on the bed there for more than an hour. 

Then, my luck went bad. When the water was nearly empty, it stopped dripping. And my blood suddenly flowed through the other end of the tube that was on my hand. I was like: blood? what are you doing? blood? stahp! I don't have enough time to make a real meme out of this one. Sorry.                                                                                                                                                                                     

Well, thank god that the nurse came in time. She carefully took out the tube and gave me directions to receive my medications from another nurse.

CTU101 + MGT162


It’s been a while since I posted my last entry.

Hmm. Where should I start?

Okay. CTU101 and MGT162 papers are done. The examinations was done at different dates but at the same place (G111) and both started during evening. Here’s my opinion after facing the two papers:

CTU101 (7 OCT). I regretted not reading the notes beforehand. The fact that I didn’t know my carry marks make it even worst. I managed to complete my notes (19 pages), but I didn’t have enough time to revise it. Just as I was relaxing after finishing the compact notes, my friend called me. I actually went out to J&J Cafeteria with them to have a lunch. After picking up a friend at her home, we went directly to Block G. We came into the classroom after the invigilator called for us. Well, the rest was history. Let just say that it didn’t went well for me. Hopefully I pass. *sigh*

MGT162 (10 OCT). I already checked my carry marks and collected my assignment and test paper on Monday. After knowing my carry mark, a small sense of relief came over me. At least I made it more than half. I revised on my compact notes (30 pages), and redid some of the points in tables so I can see and understand it clearly. My friends and I went to the library to do last minute revision when our sir suddenly offered to help us with the revision. After some useful advice and tips from sir, we decided to have lunch at the same place; J&J Cafeteria.

MGT162 paper was quite okay than CTU101. Although Part A (True/False) and Part B (Multiple Choices) caught me off guard, I managed to do Part C (Short Answer) and Part D (Essay).

As much as I grow fond of the subjects; I don’t want to repeat any paper for the next semester.

That is all from me. For now. It's time to study IMD103~

first paper

I officially got a fever. Yesterday night was the moment it started. First it was just a sore throat - my throat was dry and burning up. Then my body temperature raised, headache occurred just before I was going to sleep then the inevitable thing came. Diarrhea.

I woke up at six because of my diarrhea. I hate it.

Just before 8 o'clock, I met up with my friend, who needed to print his examination slip. Then we both waited at Block G.

Just few minutes before the paper starts, my diarrhea kicked in. There I was, awkwardly trying to hold it in. But I couldn't, I lost. I quickly asked permission to go to the restroom. I practically felt like I was disemboweling myself. The agony of diarrhea.

By the time I got back into G201, everyone was already starting their paper. Most of them looked at me as if I was a latecomer. Come on people, I was already uncomfortable with my own body, so please stop looking at me like that.

The reading section was just simple tasks of what-is-the-meaning-of-this and information transfer questions. Nothing much really.

I never understood why people spend so much time on a question. If you don't have the answer, just skip it. I'm not bragging or anything like that, but I finished my paper exactly in an hour. I still could see people flipping the pages to answer the reading section. I spent the remaining hour by checking everything and counting the words in my writing section.

I just realized something. Something awful.

I was short of words. That't for being too quick. Dammit. I added some words on the conclusion - since I obviously couldn't anything on the other paragraphs. I waited again for the time to end. I did want to leave early, but I didn't notice anyone leaving.

Time's up. The magic words was spoken. Everyone scurried outside to take their bags. Most of them went to either hostel or home afterwards. I went to my IMD103 lecturer's office to see my carry marks. Microsoft Words 15/20, Microsoft Excel 14/20. Overall, I got 29/40. Oh well.
