REQUESTED: No, but I wanted to write this one after everything that’s happened recently.
WARNINGS: Kinda sad?, mentions of breakdowns/panic attacks
SUMMARY: Stiles makes sure you’re okay after you have a breakdown in the classroom and rush out.
NOTES: So, I haven’t exactly had the best time recently. Last week were my exams, and I’ve now dropped one of my subjects because the exam is done, and because the head of my Sixth Form told me to drop it to relieve some of the stress.
And there’s been a lot of personal stress and worry too recently, but my friend (who I relate to Stiles in so many ways) has really been supportive and has helped me out recently, so this imagine’s kind of inspired by him.
Anyway, hope you enjoy :) and just know, I’m always here if you want a chat <3
(Okay, okay. Yeah, it’s short. Was going for a Pride and Prejudice era type of thing. Sorry it’s so short, but at least I got it done ^.^ @juminzenweek )
His grey eyes scanned the crowd. He was never one for large parties. But, he had been dragged here by his boyfriend.
His boyfriend, crimson-eyed and silver-haired, was currently on the dance floor. He was dancing with any lady that looked like she needed a dance partner. He was laughing and talking amiably He sat down and sighed softly.
Why wouldn’t this party end already? A girl walked over to him.
“H-Hello there. How are you?” she asked timidly.
“I’m fine, thank you. How about you?” he asked. His boyfriend walked over, and put an arm around you.
“And how are you doing tonight?” he asked him.
“I’m doing just fine, as I told this wonderful lady,” he said.
“My lovely lady, might I have a moment alone with my significant other?”
“O-Oh! Of course!” the girl smiled. She went back to the dance floor.
“So. Would you like to come dance with me? Just once?” he asked. He sighed, and looked into his crimson eyes.
In regards to the manga liveblog, if there was a character we wanted to ask about, but were unsure if you had seen this character yet or not, is there a non-spoilery way to ask or would it be better to wait until you're done with the manga to be on the safe side?
I don’t know anything about what’s to come, and while I’m nearly to the point of saying “Fuck it, I don’t care”, I’m not QUITE there yet. I’ll be reading it all regardless, so I may as well hope for any little tidbit I can get.
If the character has already appeared in the first two arcs, I think you’ll be okay, since I’ve read them. If it’s about a future character though, that’d probably be a spoiler.
If you want to doublecheck first, though, consider shooting an Ask to @watchjetwolf! That’s exactly the kind of thing the community over there can help to advise you on.
And thank you so much for asking first, it’s so appreciated.
GUYS!!!! Oh my, it’s been a looooooong while. I actually went through my blog
and re-read everything and I’ve noticed that I was always saying how “I don’t
know what to and how to do blogging anymore” in most of my previous posts but I
PROMISE THIS TIME, I LEGIT DON’T KNOW WHAT TO WRITE OR HOW DO I DO THIS ANYMORE
because I haven’t done this for like forever. It felt like I’m starting again. I’m
not gonna babble more and let’s just hop right into my post.
as what I’ve mentioned on my previous posts, I’ve entered Third Year or the
Medtech proper last school year 2016-2017 and that’s (also) the reason why I
was gone for a very long time. Idk, I just found myself being swallowed by
acads and all that jazz that I never really had the time to write a single blogpost.
There’s so much that has happened in my entire Third Year life and I wish I
could’ve had written any of’em and immortalize the memories in this blog and hark
back to those times… but sadly, I didn’t. Anyway, as you can probably tell on
the title, this post would be a “rundown” of my experience as a Third Year
Medical Technology student.
how do I start?)
the school year earlier than that of the normal
students in our university due to the reason that we were trying to chase the
schedule for the 1-year internship because as you all know, we are one of those
pabibo schools who embraced the academic calendar shift. So the clinical
subjects I took this year are as follows:
General Pathology, Histopathology and Cytopathology
CC111 – Routine
– Medical Technology Laws and Bioethics
Laboratory Management and Supervision
Mycology and Virology
Urinalysis and Body Fluids (Clinical Microscopy)
Serology and Immunology
Continuation of CC1/ Special Chemistry
Endocrinology, Toxicology and Drug Testing
Immunohematology (Blood Banking and Transfusion Medicine)
believe I already passed all these freaking subjects let alone the first sem
subjects!!!! Personally, I think First semester is harder than the Second
Semester idk maybe because it’s the time when we were just and still adapting
to the new and toxic environment of
Third Year life and the transition is quite overwhelming. Also, the passing rate
was raised from 60% in Second Year to 70% in Third Year. I CAN’T EVEN!!! Plus
the laboratory practical exams had an upgrade to like 5x that of the Second
Year pracs. There’s legit a time when I went back to my dorm during lunchbreak
just to cry and for the first time in my life, I called my mom and cried for my
dear life because IT WAS SO HARD.
also during First Semester when I learned how essential it is to know the time difference from night
(let’s say 7pm) to 5 the next morning and how to utilize it very well because
your life literally depends on how you manage and distribute it to sleeping and
studying because you know, you’ll only have to read 1-3 chapters per subject
and you only have like 3 quizzes the next day for the lecture and probably a
practical exam or a long quiz for the laboratory in the afternoon. JUST HOW AM
I SUPPOSED TO PREPARE FOR THAT IN LESS THAN 10HRS???— is all I was thinking
then. That’s how resentful and pitiful I was back then.
laboratory skills we were taught— Venipuncture (of course! the freaking highlight
and a must), Blood Smearing, Staining, Pipetting!! Oh God forbid, I loathe
glass pipetting so much! Direct Fecal Smear… and all medtech-y skills. I love
Bacteriology so much. It was the subject I got the highest grade during First
Semester. The lecture and laboratory were both the bomb.com. But ofc, I wouldn’t
forget the anxiety the Unknown has
given us. For our finals in the lab, we were given unknown organisms and we
were to identify it via Biochemical Testing and everything we were taught of on
how to identify such. It took me so long to decide what my organism was because
some of the biochemical test results weren’t at par with theoretical information
so imagine my anguish. Our grades basically depended on it so… yeah.
the end, I decided it was Enterobacter cloacae.
memory from First Semester is the time when we were to submit Enterobius swabs
as additional points for our Parasitology laboratory. I took my bestfriend with
me to hunt down possible patients. It was such a memorable experience, I have
no more words. I poured all the feels on this Facebook post.
never forget about First Semester is the day when we had our Grand Practical Exam in our laboratory
subjects and it was the time when 3rd Floor HSC was in a total dishevelment.
We were taking turns and rotating in different labs to have our moving
practical exams simultaneously— one section is having their Histopath moving pracs,
the other is having their Bacte moving pracs, then another section is on the
roil in Hematology moving pracs while the other one is having their
Parasitology Moving Pracs and the like. That was the most intense day ever
that day, was the first time I was able to extract blood on a practical exam!!!
I can never forget how stupid I may have looked for shouting “Hala may dugo”
when blood oozed out from my partner’s vein. I was never able to bleed my
partner in almost all the practicals we had due to my infamous phobia with
needles and I was legit surprised and awed when a blood came out that day!!!
events of Second Semester… I’m not really sure?? lol even though it’s the
more recent semester, I can’t remember much from it coz it went like a blur to
me. It was so fast it was so unreal that it actually happened!!! (and that I
thing I could say about Second Semester is that I fancy UBF hahahaha I’m not
sure if it’s the subject itself or teacher factor hahahaha but to be honest, it
was so fun to study and probably the easiest of the panel of subjects for
second semester (or so I thought).
laboratory learning and insights this semester gave me more of the medtech
feels because most of the experiments/tests we did in the lab were the ones
that are being performed in the actual laboratory setting. I will never forget
the struggle of dilution in Serology lab. We weren’t allowed to use calculators
during the entire semester and of course as someone who absolutely hates math
and computation, that’s. the. worst. nightmare. ever. So given that situation,
imagine our surprise during the Final Laboratory Written examination when our
instructor finally allowed us to use calculator. Everybody in the class was in
awe because that’s super unexpected. We didn’t have much of moving practical
exams this sem compared to the numerous ones we had on first semester. The
practical exams were more like skills-based and principle application. Slide
identification-kind-of-moving practicals was surprisingly nakakamiss.
Self-pity time: Two semester have passed and no one was able
to extract blood from me huhuhu do I even have veins??? :——(
give you some insight, there are:
major examinations in each lecture subjects
major written examination in each laboratory subjects
Practical Exam in each laboratory subjects
Practical Exam in each laboratory subjects
and post quizzes in every meeting in each lecture subjects
and post quizzes in every laboratory experiments
Quizzes every after chapter
Quizzes before major examination in each lecture subject
Quizzes before major examination in each laboratory subjects
quizzes whenever the professor would like
to mention the drawings of each specimen in laboratory manuals in each
Journal readings in each lecture subject
hindi po kami OA and nag-iinarte. Our lives literally revolve in exams and
on, last May 19, we had our Pre-Internship Program which is a prerequisite
before you can proceed to internship. On that exact day,we took a 700-item Diagnostic
Examination without any notice and I literally just came back from an 8-hour
trip because I went home in Bicol so I was sitting for like 14 hours
straight!!! We had series of practical examinations for two weeks, a Phlebotomy
seminar with BD Philippines, a tour in a National Reference Laboratory which is
the National Kidney Institute and an Oral Revalida.
CAUTION: Photospam ahead.
I’m not sure if this is enough to summarize everything because I can feel that it’s not even in the slightest bit justified on this post. Maybe it’s one of the wonders of life that cannot be really put into words. (But you tried, self what are you doing hahaha)
to say that all these experiences; the nerve-racking and heartbreaking quizzes,
no-sleep days, tears, sweats, blood (hahahaha legit), cramming moments and all
other hardships are the variables which played significant roles in this endeavour
which lead me to where I am heading right now. I’m so happy and proud to share
to you guys the next step I’m taking in this career path. I am now officially a
Medical Technology Intern at St. Luke’s Medical Center – Quezon City under the
Institute of Pathology. I know, I can’t believe it myself that I was able to
pass through the needle-hole like hurdle you call “Third Year life”. SLMC is
actually my first-in since we are to undergo 1-year internship and we will be
having our second-in next semester in another hospital.
be forever thankful to Trinity University of Asia especially to Dean Rodriguez
for always making sure that the quality of education/ training is there. Thank
you for a super hands-on laboratory experience. It’s like a simulation of the
environment that we will be facing in the near future. Would also like to thank
our Clinical Instructors:
gearing us up with all the lectures, wisdom and skills that we would need to be the Medical Technologists that we are aiming
significant life event during the course of Third Year life:
I became an Altar Server at the
Shrine of Jesus the Divine Word. Dream come true.
I was elected Medical Technology
Councilor in the University Student Council. Unreal.
All glory and praise to the Lord God above. Thank you for guiding me in almost everything I do. Thank you also St. Jude Thaddeus for interceding for me. Forever grateful and blessed.
That’s pretty much how I can sum up my Third Year life. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoyed writing it! Thank you so much for reading yet another long blog post of mine. See you on my next post (hopefully there’s a next)!!!
they didn’t understand how you could sustain polyamory yet a week later you asked if we could just be monogamous already I would have to be okay without you for a month yet six days later, you called—“okay, I give up” you didn’t enjoy cuddling yet hours later you had learned to like it most girls can’t keep up yet I keep you on your toes I don’t think these preferences were your natural tendency I just think you hadn’t yet found an appropriate counterpart
Sadly, this is as HD as the ATLA episodes get, but I hope you give the video a shot anyway and maybe experience some of the emotions I had making it. Big thanks to @worddevourer for having this idea and my twin sister @splickedylit for consulting with me during its creation!

As a DM I play 5e, and I tend to play fast and loose, often introducing different mechanics not in the book for monsters and NPCs. My players were in the middle of what was essentially a war zone, and decided to send off one character’s adopted kid to escape while they went to fight. This child wasn’t a fighter, and their only skill (as I described it) was that they were “Very fast and good at dodging”. So, the players decided to give the kid some tools.
One was a halfling with a spare set of armor (good size for an elf kid), another had a poison handaxe, one had a spare sword, and the paladin (usually the resident goofy joke character) gave such an awesome and powerful good-luck you-can-do-it we-believe-in-you speech that I gave the kid a point of inspiration. I was actually getting amused by the fact that they were doing so much for this NPC child who I fully intended to be alright, but eventually the kid was ready to be sent off.
DM (me): So this kid is decked out in humorously deadly gear now, you gonna send them off?
Monk: Yeah. I uh, I kneel down—"Just find my horse Breka and ride off to that one town until we can find you again, okay?“
DM: Uh, Sunny nods and looks really confident with themselves. They’re just gonna turn to set out towards that horse, they know where it is.
Ranger (speaking for the first time in a long bit): I wanna cast a buff on Sunny.
DM: You… oh. Okay, what’s it do?
Ranger: It uh, it adds to their base Dexterity score, [about 7] points, and it lasts for awhile so they have a lot of time to get away.
DM: It… what? That’s a spell?!
Ranger: Yeah, it’s a spell.
Barbarian (sitting next to her and leaning over): Yep, it’s a thing, I’m looking at it right now.
DM: I… okay, you… you do that. Then the kid runs off to find the horse, and… oh my god. Guys, what have you done.
Monk: What? What happened?
DM: …So because Sunny is a child and a small target, I decided to give them a special mechanic. When they’re attacked, they can choose to either just let their AC handle it—which you just boosted with that armor—or they can try and dodge the attack. And instead of AC, they… they contest the roll with Dexterity. They already had a base Dex of 17.
Group: *pause for a long moment before they begin laughing*
DM: Guys, you just made this kid basically unkillable! You just—they’re a demigod, now, this little elf kid scampers off to fight Thor or something, and Thor can’t land a hit! You—the kid is immortal! This kid has become a diety!
Monk: Protect my child! Not even god could hurt them now! God child!!
Group: *begin chanting “God child”*
DM: I—oh my god their initiative mod is insane now too, I—I think this kid just ascends into the heavens. I can’t believe you’ve done this.
