Exam time!

Hello, everybody!

Here, things have been going... Well, things have been going. Very busy, very tiring, very crazy, so, so, so, so, so, so exhaustingly crazy! Right now, I don't even have the energy to write you a proper blog post. I really hope I will be able to, soon, because I know you feel a little let down at my tardiness.

My first exam is on Saturday - Macroeconomics, woop! I will be studying like a crazy little ferret for the next few days. Look out for a new blog post really soon, as in really very soon! About... Monday?

Happy, happy sleep...

Medical experiments...

If you thought that students only agreed to be part of dodgy medical experiments for cash in movies, think again! I am spending the day as a bona fide guinea pig for Dr. Mike Skinner's skin blanching studies. This morning at 7am sharp, he applied some corticosteroid cream onto small spots of my arms, and if my skin reacts to the cream by lightening sufficiently, I will have bought my ticket to a weekend's stay at the medical centre and R950 at the end of it all!

It's safe. Really.

Playing dress-up...

As most of you know, charity and hospice shops are pretty much my favourite kinds of shops, even more so than candy shops and shops where you can buy good essays. And my kind of shopping puts Sex and the City to shame in that way that only a whole wardrobe of yummy new stuff for only R99 can. Today, I made a serious mission down to the Sunflower Hospice Shop in Grahamstown and came back with some super-snazzy buys. Remember, I said R99. Only. For all this. Oh my god.

Check them out, and let me know what you think!
