Sulcus and gyrus.

السلام عليكم

I was trying to write down at least a post every month. Apparently, I missed my April post. I did have something in mind to be blurted out, and due to time constraints (and unclear reason why I was so lazy to type) I decided to just go on with life.

We human just plan. That's what we do. Sometimes we didn't plan anything, but things happen anyway. Allah is the BEST planner. 

I just had my LAST and FINAL minitest yesterday. Phewww, what a relief is was over! Imagine we need to learn the nasty neuroanatomy, which basically means  we're learning about brain parts, it's blood supply, gyrus and sulcus. We suffered I tell you.

On second thought, it was fascinating to learn about our brain. HOw it is weigh about 2% of our total body weight, but consume 20% of our body energy. That's a lot! This shows out brain works the most from other organs.

And it is so unique. I just can't simply put it into words how amazing it is. I wish I was a brain who is efficient in multitasking, because we can't have enough of things to do huh?

Anyway, I have just re-watched The Princess Diaries after more than 10 years! It was out in 2001 and it is now 2015! *tua alert* I've forgot the last time I watched the movie. It was one of my favorite!

Re-watching it brings back the memory. It feels like someone return your lost luggage at the airport. All your fogs of worry fades away and a rush of endorphins runs in.

I remember being a nerdy, ugly duckling who feels like an outcast sometimes. As the fable continues, it happens out you were surround by the wrong ducks.

With the right circle of friends, you are free to be a nerd giving 'hambar' jokes and to suffer an ugly crying face. And you know your beautiful swans will always be there for you.

So girls, I'm sorry if I ever hurt you in any of my mean way. Hah, you don't read my blog anyway :P

Now I know why
people looks up at neurologists/neurosurgeon. 
Ramadhan is very near! *excited*
Allahuma balighna Ramadhan
Wassalam :)

Feeling twenty-two ;)

السلام عليكم

Happy birthday to Hanie! 

Let this be a yearly routine of writing down something on my birthday. 

I just LOVE birthdays, especially mine :P I have this hobby of giving hints and reminding people that my birthday is coming. 

Well, I don't expect a large scale birthday party. But I do hope I can share my excitement and contentment with the people around me. 

I LOVE birthdays since my first birthday cake. When I was too small and my parents need to hold me in their arms and assist me on slicing the cake.

I don't know about you,
But I'm feeling twenty-two. 
Gotta love Taylor for coming up with this song.

السلام عليكم
Gonna have a little ramble here.
Today is Saturday and while others are enjoying their weekend night out, us, the medical students are facing our textbooks and lecture notes. Also, our morning weekends will be spent in the library. Those are some of the things we sacrifice for the benefits of others.
That was preface.
I just ended my second week of third block. Another block to go and then it's our first professional exam. Each block will consist of 8 weeks of lecture and we'll be learning about different body systems each block. By the way, we have two professional exams that we need to sit. Once in second year, to assess whether we are competent enough to enter clinical years, and later in our fifth and final year, to confirm whether we can graduate with a MBBS scroll in our hands. 
Second year's syllabus is much more fun compare to first year's. During second year is where we learn all the pathologic conditions, and where we can relate our knowledge from first year. I bet clinical years will be even more exciting as we are going to apply and witness everything right before our eyes.
Last block, we've learn about the Gatrointestinal System. One of the best block, personally speaking. We've got a bunch of surgeons came to teach us. They exposed us to the clinical settings and they were so freaking cool. I mean, I enjoyed their class very much.
They inspired me to become a surgeon. I imagine myself holding a scalpel, doing an incision to perform appendectomy. Or even doing a laparoscopic cholecystectomy to remove inflamed gallbladder.
One day, I was sick (couldn't remember why). I couldn't helped it and decided to see the doc for some meds. Somehow I've blurted out I want to be a surgeon. He quickly shook his heads off and said, "Susah tu".
Excuse me doc, but nothing comes easy in life. Who are to judge my dream? You always have to work hard for it. I thought you know that better yourself. Things I should have said to him.
Whatever happens, we always need to work hard and SMART! May Allah grant our prayers, amin :)
Berangan tu percuma,
 realiti perlukan usaha.
