Positive tapi jauh.

A few nights ago I was mindlessly talking to a girl in the ward. Well it was mainly because I was trying to evaluate her knee reflex and needed something to distract her mind.

Me: What do you wanna be when you grow up?
Her: I want to be a doctor! *smiles broadly*
Me : Aww thats nice. Why do you want to be a doctor?
Her: I wanna help people plus its a respectful job.

I don't want to burst her bubble and say that people nowadays look up to Sheikh Google more than they do at doctors. She was just 10 years old! But I guess I just wasn't in the right state of mind. I smirked and said is this (coming to the ward at night) what you rather do? She said yes and grinned while I was left biting my lips so as to stop myself from being skeptical.

Later that night I asked myself why am I doing this. Why do I want to become a doctor? I realized that I have no answer for that. My answer back then would be the clichè I want to help people. If someone ask me now? I would say I'm just going with the flow, working as hard as I can and see where fate brings me, as per usual. Don't get me wrong, I do make plans. Its just that I am not good at executing it.

I have so many pending questions about this quote. What if what I love doing could not feed me eg: sleeping and reading novels? What if I couldn't figure what I love doing? Should I become jobless then? 😂

I think we have the ability to grow interest in something. The least we can do when facing a subject (or a course) that we don't like is to try our best instead of deciding that you can't. Some people have the power to choose but for some of us, circumstances plays a big role. Lagipun, if God brings you here, He will bring you THROUGH it. Have faith. Next monday would be the first end of posting exam dan seorang Nabilah sedang stress dan risau seperti biasa.

The art of what matters;

" It's easier to sit in a painful certainty that nobody would find you attractive or that nobody appreciates your talent than to actually test those beliefs and find out for sure".

A few months ago I responded to an advertisement that is looking for medical student who could write. I gave the person a message and we even had a conversation where she explained about how they are going to provide source, give deadline and how they pay for each writing job that I'll agree to. A week after that, she called and I purposely didn't pick up the call. Why? Well in my defense, it was one of the busiest week in our posting. But to be completely honest, I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to do it. So I retreated back to the comfort of my life and just pretend that I could have done it but I choose not to. Did I regret my decision? Back then no, but as I'm writing this I wonder how long is this going to last simply because I refuse to try for fear of not being able …

Skincare routine

Skincare was a very strange concept to me as my mother (who is blessed with good skin genes) always emphasize that putting products on your face would exaggerate unwanted reactions. She was right to a certain extent, if you use unverified products (read; skincare that claims to whiten your complexion in 2 days) then in the long run it would damage your skin. I used to think skincare is such a girly thing to do. Back in high school until my foundation years, I never bothered using toner, moisturizer or even sunscreen! Life was so simple back then, I cleanse my face, let it dry and hope to God that acne would stop invading my face. Who would've thought now I have to wake up early to make sure the sunscreen sit on my face for a solid 20 minutes before going out of the room.

My skin is dry and sensitive. I concluded its sensitive as I can't use products with fragrance without developing rash. Certain products I have tried in the past leaves a tingling sensation especiall…

#PulangMengundi and merepek sikit

As soon as the date for General Election 14 was announced, people started to voice out their concern. For first time voters especially students its not easy to allocate money for transportation. Money is tight for me. Scholarship is not banked in yet and asking for flight ticket money seems so odd in this frugal situation. I saw #PulangMengundi on Twitter which was initiated by a noble and kind-hearted fellow Malaysian made to help each other especially students to go back to their hometown and vote. I am so overwhelmed by this kind gesture because never in a million year would I ever dream of someone sponsoring my ticket back home. Its just too good to be true, and good things doesn't come by that often for me. It is so moving to see people unite, regardless of religion, race, and political view. I hope someday I would be able to be on the giving side. Faith in Malaysian humanity: restored.

What comes next was history, my family and I stayed up late watching AWANI…
