Assalamualaikum and greetings! Salam Awal Muharram 1435H :)
It had been almost 2 months since I became a medical students. 9th September 2013 will be a momentous date when we enrolled into Kulliyyah of Medicine, International Islamic University Malaysia.
The first month was quite challenging. During the Taaruf Week (also known as Orientation week), we were briefed by the Dean and Deputy Deans. Somehow we had some obscurity. Are we making a right decision of choosing medicine?! That thought only stayed for a split second. We continued on being excited about going into the medical museum and dissection room.
First week of classes were focus on briefings and introduction on each subjects we will learn soon. Also, there were anatomy classes where we learn about lower limbs with Dr. Ye Tun. Still excited of becoming a medical student, we really studied hard each nights and every free time. By the second week, all of us had gone 'pancit'.
The state of us being 'pancit' was quite hilarious hahaha.
We try to figure out a way out of this exhaustion. There was too much to revise. There were always pre-reading and post-reading. Then you need to focus in class. Thank God there was no homework!
By the third week we barely got our study rhythm. But somehow we survived. Trying really hard to survive fourth week. Fourth week was really my accidentally-doze-in-the-class week. I was really looking like a living dead. With dark circles around my eyes and looking rather lethargic.
Fifth week was the week we really eager to meet. Going back home on that weekend for Eidul Adha. Our holiday was supposed to be a short one that ends on Wednesday, with class commence on Thursday. Surprisingly, a day before going back home, it was announced that our lecturers postponed our classes on Thursday and Friday in order to give us a one week long holiday. How cool is that?! (Do bear in mind that the longest holiday for the medical students are usually one week at the end of the block but we got it in the middle of the block!)
