High Tea to Celebrate the new-found free time.

High Tea to Celebrate the new-found free time.

Last week I was able to spend a lovely weekend relaxing with friends and enjoying the time we’ve finally been rewarded after 5 years of study.

For those who dont know, I’m currently in my final year of medicine which is the most anticipated year for the whole course of MBBS. In my degree, our “final” exams are in 5th year (last year) and thus 6 year is essentially our pre-internship year. It’s almost guaranteed that we will be graduating this year, which has removed an immense amount of pressure on all of us. It’s as if we’ve been handed our life back to us – free to do with it whatever we want. I’ve been indulging myself in this new-found “free time”, dedicating many hours to watching movies daily, guiltlessly sleeping in on weekends, enthusiastically part-taking in new hobbies & activities,  and of course, trying to be more interactive on my youtube, blog and now facebook.

It’s been a long 5 years, with many ups and downs – some days being more bleek than others. With the increasing numbers of medical students graduating each year, it’s hard to appreciate the process of achieving a medical degree to become a Doctor. But I tell you, It’s damn hard. Not only is it intellectually draining, the pure duration of the degree is enough to challenge any person. Nearly every year there is a college mate or close friend who are graduating out of their 3-4 year course, moving to a new house, going to new places, meeting new people. And all the while, you’re stuck in the same place, same degree, same people and with the same never ending questioning of “is this really what I want to do?”.

You question everything – your abilities, your motivation, your determination… your future. And every single year when that dreaded “end of year” exams come around, there’s almost always an emotional/mental break down. It’s almost inevitable that there will be weeks of unhealthy eating, weeks of sleepless nights, and weeks of residing in the medical school study room – all so you can pass a 3hr long, 50 page exam. (There are also OSCE’s but thats a whole lot of completely different stressing…)

Nonetheless, every year, it all pays off. And finally, here I am, at the final year of my degree, with all the time in the world.

So, all that just to say I have more free time? Yeh, I know. haha

Back in the philippines for christmas :D

Back in the philippines for christmas :D

Hi everyone, just wanted to update you all that I’m currently in the Philippines and enjoying the bludgy lifestyle. Unfortunately the internet has been practically non-functional due to it’s speed, and hence I have not been active on youtube/twitter/instagram/blogspot. Also due to the heat, I cant say I’m particularly enthusiastic about filming. Dont get me wrong, I do want to film some vids for you guys, but it’s just so tedious and the heat to be honest, just makes me feel so lazy.

Nonetheless, I was able to get off my lazy ass and finish editing this video for you guys, and the internet was cooperative and allowed me to upload the video within a reasonable amount of time.

Unfortunately, I forgot to take photos of the outfit I wore to the airport, so I’ve just taken screenshots from the video. I’ve made a makeup tutorial and outfit of the day videos for this and I’ll include it down below. For now, please enjoy and see you in my next blogpost!
