I missed my blog - or rather, I missed blogging. Thought I'm really quite sick of my assignments - it's all together a different thing when you write for yourself..
At the moment, I really don't feel like doing any work - at least I've met three deadlines successfully and two more to go - with one being later in the month. Actually now I just took on another short and relatively easy one! sigh.. no break.. besides my 5 days holiday!!
Speaking of my holiday to Krabi.. I'm definitely and very much looking forward to it.. but my eye has let me down! :( Ok, I shouldn't make a big deal out of it since the eye specialist I saw today said it's nothing serious - just some sort of inflammation in my left eye. But the fact remain that I can't wear contact lenses! Just imagine - going to a beach resort, with swimming and snorkeling activities high up on the list. I am practically blind without glasses or lenses!
This irritation and red-eye problem in my left eye had been nagging me for a month now! It all started when I went for a facial with Clinique - well, it's free and a basic one cos I bought some lipsticks for my mom. Despite asking the beauty therapist to be careful cos i had my contacts on, she practically put soap and rubbed across the edge of my left eye! It felt kinda funny already but it wasn't so bad so I didn't make a deal at all. But the next day, my left eye got redder and redder as I was still wearing contacts. So from then on, I laid off contacts for a few days but every time I thought it was ok to wear contacts again, the redness reappeared! This pattern just went on - I already had laid off contacts for a stretch of a week but it just didn't heal.. Until yesterday I went back to my optometrist and he advised me to see a eye doctor.
The doctor examined my eye quite thoroughly and went ahead to prescribe two types of eye drops for me. And after hearing my `plight', the doctor actually said if I really want it, I could wear a daily disposable contact lens just for swimming and snorkelling. From now till my trip, I definitely can't wear contacts and also need to put eye drops 3-4 times a day. And hopefully, the eye will recover well enough..
Sigh, I really really hope so. I should have gone to see a doctor earlier in hind sight. Oh well.. better late than never i guess.
Can't believe we're well into July - second half of the year.. I don't even have time to do a half-year reflection being so occupied by my assignments. Guess I shouldn't complain.. it's better to be busy and have things to do (ie. earning some money) than being relaxed but idle and unproductive.
So I still have to strive on and hopefully have more exciting things to blog about soon. (actually the week has been quite happening - work related or other wise but just have no mood and time to blog about it..)
Pardon this other crappy and self-indulgent post.. but as I say, I missed my blog! Till the next (hopefully interesting) post.
