Confessions of a semi-doctor: (5) … And then you procrastinate!!


I’ve always been a procrastinator, always! Mom says it reflects no sense of responsibility, this is doubtless, and for a “med-schooler”, it’s also quite risky!!

You get that false sense of security; peace of mind, and you don’t give a damn till a near exam punches you pretty hard! Adrenaline floods you and miraculously, you get the job almost done! You score a B, sometimes C, not so bad! You know you’d score an A+ with a little more effort, but as always, you end up next year exactly the way you were last year!!

Sometimes I think it means I’m strong enough to get through that stress (though I panicked before my finals two years ago!), but I still hate it! And this year is like no other, for the “tons” of pages I  need to study and the new clinical skills I have to learn! And what’s my progress so far?? Less than 10%!!

I still have 6 months till finals knock my door, it ain’t so late (PHEW!), yet I keep wondering when the dropping temperature would stop dragging me down, ’cause I gotta start running to catch the rain I’ve missed!!

Guest posting!


I’m guest posting on one of my favorite blogs; “Dear Optimists”. You can check my post here! My 12-year-old sister drew the illustrations.. 🙂

Valentine is overrated!


First of all, I have never believed in Valentine.. Setting an annual date to express  your feelings toward the people you love doesn’t make sense at all!! The same goes to Mothers’ day; you’ve got everyday!

Anyway, what really irritates me, is how some people turn it into weeps about how worthless their life is, for being single, and having nobody to share this “holy” Valentine with! Well, the way I see it, single is being lucky enough to have the time and the space to discover your own self.. Yes, what is a relationship after all?? Isn’t it all about sharing your life with someone who actually cares for you? So, how do you share something you have never had?!!

I spent today at home with my family, watching comedy shows, laughing at silly jokes, and with little studying.. That made it a worthy day!

To cut it short, my point here is: How about getting a life, figuring out who you really are, where you want to end up, getting a career you love, and most of all, loving yourself rather than grumbling about being lonely?!! This makes your life a lot worthier, right??

Just swing!


It’s the smallest things that make you happy! Sometimes all it takes, is setting your inner child  free; going clumsy and acting spontaneously!

It could be a minute on a swing.. Swaying back and forth, dropping all your worries behind. That sweet taste of freedom makes your heart giggles; you chuckle like a baby… People will think you’re a fool, but you won’t care; you won’t see them, it’s just the reviving breeze, the blue sky, and you..

A “blessed” birthday!!


“21 is the age of responsibility. Give it a few months and you will be wondering why you were in such a hurry to get here.” ~ Unknown.

Today I turn page 21 of my life. I never thought of it as a bewitching event! What is so interesting about having more “responsibilities”?!!

However, birthdays are all about greetings, family, friends, gifts and cheerful stuff. And whether I like it or not, getting older is out of my hands, I’d better enjoy the day and have fun. I’m quite aware of this, no weeping.. But wait, what if my birthday is linked to death?! Yes, death and disasters!!

2 Feb, “Combat of camels”… I was born on that date too!

That was last year, people will never forget that very date, not because I was born of course, but because people got killed! I wanted to get over and move on this year, but over 70 got killed in Port Said last night (another nasty act planned by SCAF)!!! Today is literally a tragic day in here, there’s mourning, prayers for the martyrs, and marches against SCAF! How dare I consider the thought of celebrating?!!

Sarcastically, a friend of mine tweeted me this, she’s right somehow!

Translation: “Your birthday causes us troubles every year by the way!!”

“#Feb2” is being hash-tagged on Twitter now, and the Tweets aren’t any pleasing! I wonder, can’t we omit this deathly date from the calendar?!

iQuote: (1) A brighter you!


I’ve been sharing quotes on Facebook, and thought of sharing some of my favorites in here.. Here I start, Enjoy! 😀
