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.
