It's been month after month of semi-travel to actual work travel to just me wanting to show you more interesting days. The funny thing about this month was that I woke up on the 11th of the month, CONVINCED that it was the 12th.
I even felt annoyed at myself for starting taking photos late and forgetting to do so for a bit in the middle of the day. By the evening, I went for a run and when I got back home past midnight, I check my phone and realise. Oh wait. The 12th JUST started. And so here are photos from the second day I tried to make my day more interesting. I can't say I was successful.
- Take 12 photos on the 12th of each month
- Post the pictures chronological order
- Indicate the time, location, and a small comment
- Taken from Chad at 12 of 12

I'm still on this horribly long 21KM run training and I don't know how I'll ever survive 21KM. Also, the NIKE app somehow deleted my training schedule and becuase I refuse to start from scratch, I'm going to just add a kilometer every week till I reach 21KM.

I try to draw a daily card from the beautiful Jane Austen tarot deck but sometimes I fall behind and so here I am catching up on the card of the day before heading to bed. I will regret sleeping this late like I always do everyday and yet I do nothing about it.

It's a work from home kind of day because a) I'm not feeling very well and b) I have an actual doctor's appointment but the calendar looks manageable and the morning tasks are out of the way (reports, trackers and whatnot). I am grateful for this kind of flexibility.

And I'm off to the hospital to get my MRI results and because I was unsure of the results, I thought I might as well look polished when I get whatever they are. I love this jumpsuit from Uniqlo even if I'm generally not a jumpsuit fan. I feel very grown-up in it.

There was a time when Eva Chen would do these and she had the most fabulous bags and shoes. This is the exact opposite with the most basic bag and shoe combination against a black seat and so I'm surprised I can decipher anything at all. Oh well, I tried.

All clear! I don't know what these scans mean but the doctor said it was good and it looks pretty cool to see my face all scanned. I honestly don't know which is which but I have 9 plates of scans that all say good things apparently. Not great things, but not HORRIBLE things so all in all, A+
07. 12:46 pm, KFC
To celebrate the wonderful news, I decide to have KFC for lunch. But wait, I also have KFC when I don't feel good, so basically it's just a normal day for KFC. I am obsessed with their chicken. I love fried chicken. They have great chicken. It's a win-win to be honest.

I just wanted to show you the pretty walkway outside the building. I don't really get to walk around here much or appreciate the foliage much but when I do get to walk by, I like how green and shady it can be despite the blaring sun. I should take more walks around the block just because.

I usually eat in my room, on my desk but I thought today would be a dining room kind of day complete with Riverdale in the background to keep me company. I'm so happy this show is back. I didn't think I'd enjoy it as much but I guess I will forever be the target market of the CW.

the lack of travel has definitely hampered my progress on this blanket/throw but I'm determined to finish it even if i have to force myself to do a couple of rows a day. I try and fail every day but I hope to finish it by the end of the month. Fingers crossed for me, please.

out of nowhere, the roomies decide to have dinner together and so we all jump in a car for the quickest drive ever (it was raining) to the second nearest mall. I don't mind ramen at all but I never seem to be able to finish the noodles. It was a great meal though and a nice surprise.

And for more roommate bonding, we play 7 Wonders, a game I still don't quite understand and somehow won a round of because of the wonderful coaching. I have to do a lot of thinking in this game but I'll get the hang of it eventually, I think. I don't mind the winning part.
