Celebrate your Wins

Celebrate your wins: My tiny accomplishments and wins for the past week:

  • Suddenly got notified that I had to go down to the clinic to collect data, which was like starting my first day of work all over again
    • Managed to go through two sessions of data collection (although I was just shadowing someone)!
    • Decided on my own to brave through two more sessions next week before I set off on my own in collecting data at the clinic
    • Started out really anxious and sad but am appreciative of the opportunity I have now
  • Ate quite healthily the past week – lots of yong tau fu (vegetables and tofu in soup with noodles), vegetables and mixed rice!
  • Managed to take some time after work this week to configure my blog
  • Wrote up and submitted ethics application for a new study all on my own!
  • Sent some emails to higher-ups on my own!
  • Socialized pretty smoothly with the new intern and research officer who came in this week
  • Faced my weakness (chinese) and sought help for translating english questionnaires to chinese and practised saying them aloud and writing the han yu pin yin (intonation and pronunciation)!
  • I didn’t give up and tried pretty hard for pilates class today
  • Have exercised for twice a work week so far, left with 1 more exercise session for the weekend
    • (i’ve been keeping up with exercising 3x a week for the past 2 months hehe)
  • Managed to strike a conversation with my boss today
    • (in the bathroom – it’s mixed gender)
  • Could keep up a conversation with a senior finance person on the 30-mins long bus ride (we happen to live in the same area), and enjoyed it. She’s probably more than twice my age.
  • (Tonight) SLEEP EARLY!!!! (at 10pm-ish). And wake up early!

Any and all comments are welcome!
