Time flies so fast. Today I might be counting weeks before our Final Exam, but sooner it would be days then hours then minutes more… Oftentimes, I cannot help but wonder while reading my lectures ( yeah I know I have a poor concentration :D ) where will I be a month from now? Is it in my prison (dormitory) or out there while being sun kissed? Who will be my companions by then? My family, or my room mate or worst alone? What am I doing? Will I be one of the happiest or the regretful? Well that is certainly uncertain and unanswerable by this time! Only God knows.
It would definitely be another heart-breaking story of my life as a Med student if I would not make the grade for the second time. Another failure in which I do not know if I could still accept. I swear! that’s the worst feeling ever! But whatever it is, I trust Allah. He is the wisest. Whatever the results will be and wherever I will be… it’s Allah’s plan. And it’s a perfect plan. I just have to trust Him.
Oh how sweet is that feeling when you are an outright passer! Inshaa Allah, miracle will happen and my name would be included there again… Ameen Ya Allah!
What a #Robbin’s vs. #MaryHigginsClark day! What to choose? What to choose… lalala :)
If only the excitement and thrill that I’m feeling everytime I have a new suspense book to read is same as when reading ALL my medical books, grades would no longer be a big problem. Oh well that’s me… Robbin’s, Katzung, Bates, Schwartz, Nelson, etc. are ALL boring! :D
You have no right to talk about me that way. You have never been in my situation, and I’m pretty sure you never will. You don’t know what I’ve been through all these years. You have no idea how much I have sacrificed and how many things I did deprived myself just to get here. Behind these pretty smiles and little laughter is a heart that is full of despair, slowly melting and dying from all the hardships and trials I’m facing each day. So if you don’t have anything right to say about me, then it’s better for you to keep your mouth shut and leave! You can be misleading to others.
Still, Alhamdulillah for everything! :)
If you are a Medical student or even if not, and you are a little desperate to pass all of your subjects this school year just like me :), well here are some Dua’a (prayers) that will help you lift up your grades. (Inshaa Allah)
Divine intervention is what we need! :)

When we try to advise others, we sometimes encounter people who would clearly say to us: mind your own business. What they fail to see is that we are “minding our own business”.
The Prophet SAW told us that the society we live in is like a ship. If sinners wanted to dig a hole in it, this becomes “our business” as we will all sink with it!
The Prophet SAW also said: the most abhorred speech to Allah SWT is when a man advises another and he says to him “mind your own business”.
Therefore, avoid being among those who reject an advice and reply to all that comes to you with: jazakAllahu khairan!
People will judge you without knowing you, judge you with little knowledge of you, at times they will judge you because they’re jealous or envious of you, they will judge you even though they have never spoken to you or seen you, they will judge you according to one side of the story.
ALLAH Ta’ala judges us with Justice, He looks at our hearts and intentions and not at our appearance. He knows what man know not.
People assume and speculate while ALLAH is All-Knowing, All-Seeing and All-Hearing… Allahuakbar!
It’s during our second year of medical school that we have to spend a good hunk of our youth studying for damn tests. Damn hard tests. While all of our fellow twenty-somethings are off enjoying their lives (or so it feels), we are sitting in a room of fluorescent lighting with towers of books and flashcards. But tonight, just tonight, I wanna take a big rest! Forget about Robbin’s or Bate’s and the tons of other lectures to memorize, understand and study, the platings and CPC-making! I need a break! SOOoo goodnight! :)
Improve your secret and private life, and Allah will improve your public and social life. Make matters well between you and Allah, and Allah will make matters well between you and people. Work for the Hereafter and Allah will be enough for you in your worldly concerns.
