  1. Time for a Catnap: Random Thoughts on the Past Semester

    Itís finally our semester break! No more reading those thick medical books over coffee until the wee hours of the morning. Imagine that, two weeks of sleeping soundly wand worry-free. Thatís a cool proposition.

    The past six months had been swift, grueling and hectic. It felt just like yesterday when I sat at the back of the class room for the first day. Days turned into weeks as I got barraged by exams, reports, conferences and other school work. My social life had turned nil, with ...

  2. Of Shifting Exams, Storms and Shticks: The Gob-smacking Turns These Past Days

    Saturdays for a student usually meant his rest day. After all, its a Saturday and its a day to rest and, in some cases, heal the wounds inflicted the week before, or even just the night before. With all the booze? Come on, You need a whole day to rest for that.

    But that's not in the vocabulary of a medical student. Not by a long shot, not when you have the major exams looming the week ahead.

    I had it figured out. I scheduled my subjects accordingly and created a sort of ...

  3. Of Comebacks and Central Control: The Road to Victory that had been the Past Week

    For those who give the slightest care in reading my blogs, they know that Iíve had a bad month last month. Iíd rather not relive those horrible memories so I wonít restate them here. But ever since that discouraging downfall, Iíve decided to tuck my tail between my feet and return with a comeback trap. Iíve worked double time in my studies, bought a highlighter pen and used it in my notes for the first time, and read my textbooks like thereís no tomorrow.

    And so, this week was a rather ...

  4. Stress, Failure, Depression, Chess and Old Sages: A Summary of the Grueling Past Two

    I could not imagine how two weeks can stir me up like how a hurricane would.

    It was just four weeks ago when I finally entered my medicine proper studies. The first week was so light and stress-less, I was actually going home hours earlier than the actual dismissal time. And did I mention that this was sanctioned by the professor? The succeeding weeks came out fine, and I was trotting along the lessons with a fair amount of ease, not that these lessons were easy. It was just that

  6. Do I Know You?: That Awkward Eye Contact

    You are in a public place, say a restaurant or a coffee shop. You are reading a book or playing with your iTouch while you wait for your order to be served. Suddenly the waitress brings you your coffee or pasta. You both look at each other in the eye, and you feel a spark. You say to yourself, I know this girl. And when you looked into her eye, you knew sheís thinking the same thing.

    Sounds familiar?

    Well, something very similar happened to me a couple of days ago when ...

  7. Charlie Wilson's War and How The US 'Effed Up' the Endgame

    "We changed the world, but we f***** up the endgame."
    - Charles Wilson

    The war on terror. Many of us had watched it all unfold in the news, the 9/11 attacks, the numerous bombing across the world from Pakistan to the Philippines, from London to Libya. It had all happened because of the attack of the radicals on the "infidels". However, did they forget that it was these same infidels who helped them drive out the Soviets from Afghanistan back during the Cold ...

  8. How to Smash One's Day Into Pieces

    I was happily sleeping when the incessant tugging of my mother woke me up, abruptly cutting my from my deep slumber. "Go downstairs quickly! Something happened with the car," she said frantically. Still half-asleep, I went downstairs then proceeded outside, where my father and some neighbors were already talking. What could've happened with my car?

    And so I got out, and saw the carnage. The left side front window got smashed into an intricate web of shattered glass. A large ...

  9. Human Life: Unpurposive, Unproductive, Useless

    I was playing The Frozen Throne not long ago and I came across one sentence that a character in the game was saying. He said that ďdeath shall cleanse the world.Ē I think that it has been about roughly two years since the event occurred. Now I realize that this statement might just be very true.

    A lot of things have already occurred since this last event. I had been in my freshmen years back then. I am a junior now, entering my fourth year in tertiary school just roughly three months ...
