Exams are only two weeks' away now and that's a scary thought because this week seemed to fly by. My pages don't really show how much work and study I really had to do. Having a planner I use on a regular basis has helped me plan what studying I'll do that evening/day and also allowed me to draw up my revision timetable.
I'll try and share my timetabling system in a blog post in the near future! :)
A few weeks' ago, I posted about some cute confectionary I found in Hong Kong. Here is a closer look at the cute packaging.
I just love how much detail goes into the design of sweets and how cute they can make it all look. You can definitely see who they are targeting with designs like these and to be fair, although I don't think I'm the target market, I was enticed by them all the same!
They are so cute that I make an effort to open the packaging as carefully as possible so that I can keep it intact!
Not only do they have Pocky in interesting flavours, they also have Rilakkuma biscuit sticks. The packaging celebrates the ten year anniversary and is so cute that I don't really want to open them up and ruin it!
And the other side:
A super cute drink's bottle label thing:
And the bottles themselves - they are quite small in size (320ml!) and come in a variety of flavours including strawberry, lychee, peach, orange, etc. They all have jelly pieces in them so the subtext really is true - you really do have to chew!
The cute packaging seen on the Puccho earlier in this post weren't the only chewy sweets to have cute characters on them. These Hi-Chew sweets had a cute chick on them:
Seeing packaging like this makes me wish that sweets in the UK had characters like these on. Moshi monsters (?! Shows just how out of touch I am with UK cartoon characters!) and the like just aren't the same...
Exhausted is one word for how I'm feeling right now. This week has been insanely hectic! Last week, it was half term so my daily bus trip to and from university was extremely pleasant and quick but this week, with all of the kids returning to school, my journey time has increased along with my morning and evening stress levels. Let's just say that a rowdy bus full of teenage school children isn't the best start to my day (I'm not exactly chirpy first thing in the morning as it is!).
Exams are about three weeks' away so my revision has already started. An official revision timetable is still a work in progress as I'm just revising things as and when I have the time and energy. I've also started revising clinical stuff whilst in the shower - so I'll go through a clinical exam or an area of communication, from memory, whilst in the shower. This allows me to see where the holes in my knowledge are and then hopefully, remember these little bits next time!
Basically, exam and study stress + schoolchildren stress = not a brilliant combination. However, I have survived six months already and there is only four more months to go before I get a nice summer break of four weeks!
