Highs and Lows

Day 30 : Highs and Lows of this past month ! Lowsย  Exams. I don't test well. ย Some people are able to elicit joy from the thought of writing exams but I am the exact opposite. Exams are strange for me because I feel that they don't test your knowledge properly. They make me stress [...]

The next thirty days . . .

Day 29 : Goals for the next thirty days ! Today officially marked the end of my first year. I wrote my last exam , Introduction To Clinical Medicine, this morning.

A pathological nightmare

Murphy's Law and all its shenanigans

Lily then and Lily now . . .

Day 22: How have you changed in the past two years? Two years ago I was approaching the end of my grade eleven year. I was goingย to enter matric, my final year in high school the following year in 2013. I was anxious about a number of things back then. *I was nervous about my [...]

My Favourite TV Show

Day 21 : My favourite TV Show My favourite TV show is Game of Thrones. This year has been rather busy. I have not been able to indulge in watching a lot of television. I have actually had to stop watching most of the shows that I used to follow keenly. Game Of Thronesย  I [...]

OSCE time !

Objective Standard Clinical Examination Time ! My classmates who live on campus have each other to practice on for OSCEs.

Highs and Lows

Day 17 : Highs and lows of this past year Low I can only think of one incident during which I felt lowย and that was at the very beginning of the year after writing my first Chemistry test. Itย was my first university assessment and I was really nervous. My mind had not yet braced itself [...]

My Earliest Memory

Day 14: Your earliest memory The only thing standing between me and my bed is this post so let's gets to it. This weekend has been long. I have an IsiXhosa assessment tomorrow, my OSCE is on Thursday , my first exam is in t-minus 9 days and I am dreaming of my holiday already [...]

Lily in Prague

Day 13 : Somewhere you'd like to move or visitย    I've spent what would amount to years dreaming of destinations in this world that I would one day like to visit . I intend to fulfil this hunger of mine, this desire that I have to travel the world as soon as I can. [...]

A day in the life of Lily

Day 12: Bullet your entire day I have a slight case of obsessive compulsive disorder when it comes to schedules and timetables. Nothing vexes me more than having time wasted. I get annoyed when people waste my time but I also get annoyed when I waste my own time. I've attributed this OCD quality to [...]

Musical Dreaming

Day 11: Put your Ipod on shuffle and write the ten songs that pop up My taste in music is incredibly varied - one could go as far as calling it weird ! My playlist consists of an odd mixture of different genres . I find it difficult to pinpoint what genre is my favourite [...]

Future Lily

Day 9 : How you hope your future will be like I have mentioned , on numerous occasions, that I do not like to plan too far ahead into my future because it causes me to lose perspective of the here and the now. I start to live my life in a dreamy haze and [...]

Painfully awkward and embarrassed : the chronicles of a medstudent

Satisfaction :)

Day 8 : A moment when you felt the most satisfied with your lifeย  Writing this post has put into perspective how much time I spend complaining and grumbling inwardly because I could not think of a single time when I was most satisfied with my life. I was so tempted to say that the [...]
