A time for everything

i cant believe it's time for me to apply for my foundation year job! Time really flies. Last week my group taught the third years examination skills and looking at them really reminded me of how I was when I was in their position. I remember doing things and performing certain steps in the examination bit very slowly for fear of making a mistake. And that was what I saw in the third year student when she was checking the visual field of her group mate.

third year was mainly to get things signed off in our log book. once it's done, it's done. no more repeating
Fourth year was a turning point. A time when we blossomed and grow.
fifth year is when we want to get as much experience as we can and when doing something once isn't enough.

We are the most senior person in med school now. first year medics think we are gods. But when we enter the working world, we are the most junior ones.

can you imagine us becoming doctors??

My heart echo the words from Ecclesiastes ( i have to refer a few times to get the spelling right lolz) chapter 3 on a time for everything. This is also specially dedicated to a friend who is going through a very hard and depressing time right now. It hurts to see someone suffering in pain and yet being unable to do something. The only way out is death but parting can be difficult because you will miss him/her terribly when he/she leaves. so there you go my friend, may God continue to be with you and your family during this time.
A Time for Everything
1 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:

2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,

3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,

4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,

5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,

6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,

7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,

8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

I'm so excited i can't contain this excitement anymore.

I have just booked a trip to Paris in December!!! This time i'm not flying but using eurostar which i have heard much about in sec school. i hv tried the ferry(terrible experience) and plane across europe and now it's train. Probably cruise would be next :)

the feeling is like the time in first year when I booked flights to Holland. It's been nearly 4 years since I ever made a holiday trip to Europe.

Although it's only 4 nights and 3 days, this is definitely something to look forward to especially after 3 intensive placements. can't wait!!

my room

I have finally left my old house which I have inhabited for 4 years. The room i'm living now is slightly cheaper and smaller than the previous one but overall, I'm very pleased with my new room because,

1. it's less crowded (one person less), hence more space!
2. it gives a more homely feel
3. the cupboard and table the landlord provide us are huge!

the tables are now near the heater so it's less cold when studying! note the double glazed window!! hopefully winter will be more bearable this year. The bed sits just nicely at the corner

bigger floor space for Esther to hula hoop lolz and play board game/cards ad. There's even space for the guitar!! *gasp* hahaha. But note the small entrance into the space (in the picture on the right) which is limited by the edge of the bed and a shoe rack

My table!! as you probably might have forgotten how my table in my previous room look like, let me refresh your memory again:

the table with no place to put my laptop and books but i managed to get through 4 years of med school with it.

My new table:
I know Esther will be like yaya, you have told us so many times already :P but I'm super duper pleased & happyx1000 with my table! there's even enough space to put my bookchair, my books, my bears, my stationery, laptop and even write on the table without having to move anything away! :):):):):)
