Gosh.. I don't even know where to start. The whole day is like one jumbled up ball of yarn with all different sort of threads.

Well to start off, I didnt sleep well AT ALL thanks to my very smart-ass self who constantly anticipated the injection that's gonna happen. It was all I could think about for the entire day. Serious. The first thing I say to anyone in a conversation would be - I'm taking an injection tomorrow. 'Hey Jess, have you done the PA graph?' ' I got injection today.' 'Hey good morning! It's Kavitha birthday today!' 'I got injection today.' *pause* 'happy birthdayyy....* I know people reading this would say I'm really silly or something but c'mon, everyone has gotta have a thing they fear about most, and mine is jabs.

Gawd......... Just the sight of a needle can give me the chills.

So the faithful moment started when my very good friends ran to me looking so excited and INSENSITIVELY broke the news that the nurses has arrived. Instantly I can feel my sweat breaking out and knees growing weak. *drama le u jess* I took my brave steps towards the St John room without fainting ( although I would so want it to happen)( then the nurse can just jab all 3 doses straight and be done with). I could smell the disinfectant few feet away from the room. Really brings back the memories of the jabs. So N O T comforting. Anyway, it was when I start thinking more and more about it that got me OH SO EXCITED! (NOTE : I DID NOT CRY) It was just water forming in my eyes because I was so excited! People were like fanning me with the injection consent form telling me not to be scared. The more people tell me not to cry the more water is forming in my eyes. ( I DID NOT CRY GUYS! ) Can't believe it. I was totally in shock. Speechless. Cat caught my tongue. Stunned. Whatever you call it. The nurse asked me to take seat to calm down after seeing my 'veins-popping-out-everywhere' face and tears/'just water' coming everywhere while sniffing my nose. And I was like " HOLD IT MISSY. 'I aint gonna sit there and wait til everyone has done it!' So i step up, told myself it's gonna be alright. Walk to the line nearest to me. Until I heard my friend blurting out she's scared of the trainees. And I went HOLD IT MISSY again. 'I aint gonna let no amateur do this shit.' And made a bee line to the other side. Gosh. After she rub the alcohol on my arm it was like forever. This is it. I could just run out of the room like some student-gone-mad or stare at the 'langkah-langkah memberi CPR' and keep myself occupied with it for that ten seconds.

FINALLY. It was a tiny itsy sting on my arm and that was it. Shiny kept telling me its done already because I really didnt know. My eyes was fixed onto the words 'langkah pertama' like forever. If no one told me I would still be there standing til now, staring at the very same words - langkah pertama. So I reach the piece of cotton with my other hand and pressed down firmly together with the nurse's glove and started walking away. It snap back onto her hand after walking a short distance. Poor nurse. Poor ME.

And that's my story of injection. God I can't believe there's still two more waiting. They are like dancing in front of me haunting and taunting me. YES, THAT SCARY.

Aiyark..too cheong hei already. Not enough time for my perfect parking story.
For now I will just try my best not to think about the next jab next month.
*thanks zhun keat for the sweets!**yippee, i felt like a kid again*
