hi again everybody!
i went MIA again - oops ^^
it's been over 2 weeks that i successfully graduated from med school with my final oral exams, i was enjoying my free time, doing some paperwork, taking advices and thinking about my professional future. i still can't fully believe that all the pressure is fallen off from me now. i'm so happy that the "big one", which i've been anxiously anticipating for all the years is finally, finally over and done. going into the exam as frightened students but parting 3 days later shaking hands with colleagues - the feeling was so uplifting and unreal, i was crying tears of joy.
it were long, sometimes quite stressful years of uni but now looking back, i really loved to be a student. to have the possibility to learn and ask questions every day, without serious consequences, to share the stress and have a great time with who initially only were fellow students but then became such great friends - i'm sad that we won't get to see each other regularly anymore. but at the same time i feel extremely free and excited, i could do everything i want now, all opportunities are waiting for me. will do a parachute or bungee jump to mark and remember this phase of my life - i've already received a gift certificate for it ;)
i am aware that being a physician in germany is not the most fulfilling profession - undoubtedly not relaxed at all, plus the working environment is quite a dog-eat-dog-society, but it's what i've been working towards and still a lot better than unpaid internships or crappy student jobs. my dissertation also needs to be finished, but in the mean time, i am très sans-souci and just want to go back to my blog and savour my passion for makeup.
beauty- and makeup-wise i have been literally abusing my body in the pre-exam phase and my skin thanks me for each sleepless night i've been studying through and each unhealthy meal i had *cough*instant-ramen*cough* with a big, fat pimple now. i'm currently trying to make up for it, eating healthy, working out regularly and sleeping all the day - if i'm not raising glasses with friends&family, enjoying to spend quality time with my short one (my poor cutie-pie was suffering the second-most when i was intensely studying), watching silly k-dramas or - of course - soccer.
the positve emotions of my graduation also translate to my make up mood
- i feel like i own everything i always wished for and only have
some little things left on my wish-list. at the moment, i am extremely happy and satisfied with my makeup collection (mostly due to my recent big acquisition of Chikuhodo brushes as a graduation-gift to myself ;D).
thank you all for sticking with me, i don't know what the future will bring for Delicate Hummingbird. and i don't know if or how i'll remain a blogger now that the "real life" is unfolding, but until then i want to make the best out of it, share tons of reviews, tips and ideas and just have a good time.
