Coping with myself ;

        From the frequency of my blog update, you guys could probably tell how hectic life(aka lots and lots more to read) and how lazy I have become in writing. I still jot down things on my journal and think about things to write(especially during lectures coz I'm a bad student) but really haven't put much effort into writing. I wrote something last week but I stopped halfway. I don't know why.
     For a long time, I constantly feel the need to prove myself. I wanted to prove that I am better than what people think of me. I wanted to prove people wrong for underestimating me. My determination has always been fueled by the need to prove that I am better than everyone who talks behind ny back.
       I thought after highschool ends, my attitude would change and I would be doing things because I want it. I tried putting my goals to drive me forward but occasionally, this feeling of wanting to prove something kicks in and I am back to square one.
       People have this ability of making me feel inadequate and not deserving that I unconsciously turn into my studies for comfort. I thought if I get good results and be in medic school people would eventually stop disturbing my life. But no, there will always be people who are hell-bent on making you feel inadequate.
        Its suffocating to constantly feel the need to prove something. I want to live free of the "if I become this and that it will definitely shush them". I want to be me even if the whole world is against me. This girl only wants a good life, both here and the hereafter. And what better month to try changing your attitude than in the month of Ramadhan itself?

In place of what is lost, something new emerges ;

It's been quite a while since I last wrote anything here. Maybe that's just a thing with me, I aways stop halfway. Ok so when I first sign up for this blog, I promised myself to not let negativity and the stressed part of me affect my post. But it did anyway because who am I kidding how can I stop myself from doing something that I do on a daily basis ? So a depressing, melancholic, sad,cheesy post this is going to be. You have been warned.

Alhamdulillah I am now in year 2 medic school and all praise to lord for giving me the joy of passing all 4 blocks in the first year. It wasn't a good academic year for me especially during the block 1.

Block 1 highlight:

1.My procrastinating habit is taking its toll on me. I was overwhelmed by the amount of new things that we have to study (and keep in our mind for the rest of our life)

2.I realised I'm a slow learner which means I need extra time to understand a concept. And in medicine, time is never on our side.

3. I …

Tasik Biru Ibam daytrip

Today my friends and I went to Bandar Muadzam Shah a town located about 100km from Kuantan. Awa came up with the idea on a mundane Monday morning while we were both beaten up by the freezing lecture hall and the Monday blues. We planned on visiting the so called "New Zealand" which gained its name due to the greenish scenery and the Tasik Biru Ibam. We're not really adventurous so knowing that it doesn't require much effort to reach the blue lake, is a huge relief (well at least for me).


The drive to Bandar Muadzam Shah took us around two and a half hour. Traffic was clear but the road itself is not in the best condition. From Bandar Muadzam Shah I think we drove for another 15 minutes before reaching Bukit Ibam, the exact location of Tasik Biru or the blue lake.The Blue Lake is actually an old mining site. It is said that the aesthetically pleasing blue colour is a result of copper sulphate sedimentation. No one knows the real depth or what makes the lake e…

Reality

"I am so scared of losing people that matters to me. As much as I understand that everyone will eventually leave this world, I couldn't bear the thoughts of not being able to see someone ever again. Because I am selfish and losing someone forever scares me so much.
My grandma (inak) has been admitted to the hospital yesterday. She complained that her body is aching. The doctor said there is electrolyte imbalance in her body. A sign of renal failure as it can no longer regulate the electrolyte. Her ECG showed myocardial infarction, she is dependent on oxygen mask now. Her blood pressure is fluctuating but is on the low side. It seems like her health is deteriorating even further compared to this morning.

Being away from home, I couldn't do anything but pray. Prayer transcends the distance, prayer is the only thing that helps to put my mind at ease. I couldn't concentrate on what I was studying. My first reaction when my dad sent pictures of …
