  1. Keeping up with Sausan (not Kardashian)

    Sunday, December 1, 2013

    Hey guys.

    I'm back. I know that I promised that I'll continue to blog right after my exams but I was tired and did not have any idea on what to write.
    Tonight, inspiration finally hit me like a wrecking ball after the season 2 of 'The Apartment-Design your destiny' ended. I hope you guys remember that designing show. I wrote a post last year about it. This might refresh your memory. The Apartment

    So, let's get you guys up to speed with everything that's going on in my life right now.

    1. I got the result of my A'level and HSC examination and I got (insert drum roll here) 5 As. Alhamdhulillah. I could not believe it at first. I actually checked several times with the school and the online results. 12 years of my life has been dedicated to studies and everything I have done for the past 2 years was for the 5As. I made my family proud, myself and even my friends proud. My family decided to 'surprise' me with a little celebratory party. I totally knew that they were planning the party beforehand. After all I am a very hard person to surprise.
    2. Because I got 5As from my A'level examination I get the presidential scholarship. Each year the president award all of the students who get 5As. You can choose any university in any country to study. (provided you get in)
    Yes I have already chose the country I wanted to go to. It's UK. Yay me! I am so excited. I sent in my university applications in October. I will be studying medicine. Currently I am waiting for the unis to offer me an interview. Oh and I got an offer from Sheffield but that was for my second choice and I have no intentions of actually going there but who knows? I might have a change of heart at the very last minute.

    3. When I was done with my exams I put on a couple of pounds. What can I say? To study better you need good food. I was planning on losing weight after the exam but I went to my island, Fuvahmulah.
     My cousins, friends and I had so much fun. We had our days planned and not a minute was wasted. They were spent on having fun, driving, good food and lots and lots of roaming around. It was so crazy. We would take off at 3 in the morning to no where or dress up at 5 in the morning and have a photo-shoot all around the island. BBQ in the front yard at 1 in the morning, dress up and go to the beach and have sand fights, boat riding in the lake and so much more. I miss those times and I would give anything to do that again. Here are some pictures. We didn't take a lot of pictures because we were too busy having fuuuuun. lol
    This was during one of our early morning photoshoots. Notice my very fancy gown. It's not that fancy.
    We made it to the end of the island after sun rise. It was so damn sunny. This place is called 'Thundi.' It's beautiful and a great spot for surfers.  
    A flock of birds at Thundi.

    Who says I can't drive? Here's proof.
    I am pulling my Miley Cyrus face here.
    Sigh. It is beautiful.
    This bench is called 'Black pearl.' It has the name carved into it. I am very thankful to whoever built it there. 
    Well, feet. One of the many pictures my cousin captured.
    This was our second day of boat riding. I don't have any pictures of the first day. It was fun and tiring and the view was spectacular. Notice how fat I was?
    Sunset at the lake on our first day of boat riding. You have to be there to see the beauty. The picture does not do justice to it's beauty. 
    My very good looking cousin heading towards the beach. 
    The date is very wrong. Heading ashore after my shoot.
    We have arrived at Thundi for the shoot. lol

    There was a delay to my weight loss program because of this and also because of ramadan. So in September I got  my shit together and started to work out.
    After 2 months of cardio and hip shaking and shit I lost 7 kg. The first thing people notice about me now is the weight loss. They are like 'Omg, Sau. You look so thin.' Just last night my brother came to my place and he was going on and on about how thin I look. He even asked for tips and everything. So I am really proud of myself and so is my mother. She used to scold me for not trying to lose weight. Now I did not follow a strict diet and since a lot of people approach me and ask me about it I will write about it on my blog. Aah! This blog won't become another cleaneatingweightloss blog. I promise.

    4. Since I am going to study medicine and I will be leaving to UK for interview around Jan/Feb I need to have some idea about the clinical aspect. So I applied for the clinical assistant job at IGMH here in Male'. They took a month to call us to let us know that we got the job after the interview. Today it has been 3 months since that phone call.
     They keep telling us that we will start working after the ministry send them 'chits' for the past 3 months. It was just a few weeks ago I found out that they've been lying to us and that they did not send the forms to the ministry . It made me so mad. Like, I will kill you mad. Yep, that mad.
    They have sent the forms now and all of us who got the job are waiting for that phone call and need I remind you that we've been waiting for 4 very long, very boring, penniless months? I am this close to turning into a serial killer.

    5.Our country had the presidential election three times. There was a lot of drama. The election has been stealing my thunder since October. My birthday was on the first round of the second round of the election. That did not make sense. Trust me, draaaamaaa.

    So I hope that gives you an idea about the 'stuff' going on in my life. It's pretty uneventful but I'm sure that will change this month.
    I have a lot of great posts coming up and yes, I will continue the 'Playing Bishop' story. To those who haven't read the first 2 parts yet, here's the link;
    Playing Bishop-01
    Playing Bishop-02
    Once again, I am so sorry that it took me so long to get myself to write again. So keep reading and thank you for putting up with me.

    Oh hey I'm on twitter now. So follow me on @SauSsun

    Cheers. Have a great day.
