Coffee Break

From the stories I've told people around me, a lot have said that I'm a thinker. I couldn't agree more with them. Most of the time, my mind's on overdrive and the amount of thoughts runining could get overwhelming! If you add medical school's stress to that, I end up with an overworked brain. It's true that I spend a lot of time thinking, but am I thinking of the right things?

3 Simple principles that can make each day in medical school livable

It's weird how time in medical school both creeps and flies. Lecture by lecture, time seems to inch like a caterpillar on a leaf, but before you know it, it's Friday - exam day comes again! It wasn't long ago when I was merely imagining how I would ever survive the most academically (I emphasize the word academically because I feel that beyond our level, the challenge would be more clinical) challenging year in medical school - 2nd year, but now, I'm more than half way through.

2014's over and we're 2 months and 19 days into 2015. As I've spent the last couple of days in reflection,  some evergreen principles came to me.

UPCM 2020 Interview Qualifiers, Congratulations!

So the results went out yesterday and I just found out about it when I checked facebook today. HAHA!

Congratulations 2020 Interview Qualifiers! One more push for the application process! Do well and impress your interviewers! God bless! :)

Taken 3 years ago
when I was young and full of hope,
but then medical school happened.
School's getting extremely hard lately and once again, I'm on a low in my ferris-wheel-ride of a med school life. However, coming to think of it, at least I'm not pressed everyday with problems I can do nothing about. I have a roof over my head, I'm clothed and fed. Overmore, none of my problems are matters of life and death. I mean, what's the worst that could happen? Yes my academic load is stressing me out, but in the end, if I just get on with it, it will reap benefits. Benefits that are not only for myself, but also for the countless people who will be under my care. To my future patients, I'm doing this for you. May God give me the grace to get through.

Christmas 2014

I've been planning to come up with a sem-ender/Christmas/New Year post but my laptop broke yesterday :( A lot has happened since my last post, and I'm very excited to share all of them with you! While I'm trying to figure out how I'll do my next post, here's a Christmas greeting.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone! To my fellow medical students, enjoy your vacation. You've studied hard therefore you deserve to rest from all the studying. Have fun, and enjoy your time with family and friends.
