A Surgical Future !

Neurosurgeons definitely do it better . I've spent the past four weeks doing my elective in paediatric neurosurgery and . . . . It's been amazing !

A Year Of Lily !

Lily does medschool is a year old today ! I can hardly believe that my foray into blogging has lasted for 365 days. I am entirely astounded by the fact that I " stuck it out" 😉 After a great age of wanting and meaning to but never really getting around to actually doing it , I [...]

Upward and Onward

I have been nineteen for a grand total of two days and it has been simply magical ! I woke up on my birthday to a scrumptiously prepared buffet consisting of all my favourite food and raucous singing from my family (some of which are unable to hold a tune). I was serenaded by the [...]

The Power Of An Introvert

I have spent most of my holiday in a reflective haze. Being an introvert, reflection is a daily necessity in my life. I often take an hour out of each day just to think. Many people, my own parents included, have branded me weird because of this tradition of mine but it helps me maintain [...]

Highs and Lows

Day 30 : Highs and Lows of this past month ! Lows  Exams. I don't test well.  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 [...]

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 going 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 [...]

Highs and Lows

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

Lily in Prague

Day 13 : Somewhere you'd like to move or visit    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. [...]

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 [...]

Satisfaction :)

Day 8 : A moment when you felt the most satisfied with your life  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 [...]

When life gives you lemons

Day 5 : A time when you thought about ending your own life Being human is hard ! We experience life through a myriad of emotions that range from anger so deep it makes you want to pull your hair out by the roots to happiness and joy so complete that you seem to float [...]

On a serious note . . .

Being happy is very important to me. I've come to discover that I when i'm happy, I am at peace with myself . I also love to laugh. If it were up to me,  I would spend my entire life laughing and being happy. One of my friends very aptly described my attitude as a "natural [...]
