spring is here...
I haven't been blogging in ages!!! Been having blogstipation.. Had the first two exam rotations in a row, dermatology and surgery, everyday had been so hectic for me plus the extra practical classes. The two exams went well and now i can finally breathe a sigh of relief.. ^.^
It's now March, spring, snow and ice are supposed to be melting but it was still snowing few days ago.. It's not usual though.. But anyway, my group is throwing a "surprise party" for our "beloved" russian language teacher tomorrow, to celebrate the Russian Spring Festival. This festival is known as масленица or Shrovetide, which signals the end of long russian winter. We'll be making bliny, russian pancakes, which serve as symbols for the arrival of warming sun! I'm really looking forward to having some fun with this.. Wonder how our teacher's gonna react when she sees us bringing all the pancakes, plates and spoons, etc? We haven't done something like this in a long long time.. It's gonna be fun! i hope.. ^.^
