Splendiferous Moments :)

What happened before Friday afternoon (Friday morning End Of Block Test) does not deserve any mention nor does it warrant any discussion on this blog (This is my happy space). However, the time period between Friday afternoon and Sunday afternoon was resplendent and is definitely worth mentioning 🙂 ❤ End Of Block weekends are the crème de la [...]

Types of Medical Students : Exam Edition

Types of Medical Students : Exam Edition I have a theory , an excellent theory now that I have pondered upon it, that the true qualities of a medical student are only observable just before they are to write their year-end examinations. This is based on the observations I have made in my dynamic class [...]

OSCE time !

Objective Standard Clinical Examination Time ! My classmates who live on campus have each other to practice on for OSCEs. I have had to be creative and use my younger brothers as my models as a result of my home-dwelling status. Getting my little four year old brother to sit still was a mission but [...]

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. [...]

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 [...]

Intro to Clinical Medicine : New Block !

The bluest Mondays are those that come directly after an end of block weekend. One can't help but torture themselves with images from their gloriously relaxing weekend where the minimal use of brain cells was socially acceptable. Pharmacology was depressing but I am on the route towards recovery : I am basically getting over it [...]

Death by Pharmacology

"When negative marking happens to good people" Sometimes Pharmacology just comes around and literally knocks you down . I wrote my pharmacology end of block test on Friday and it was, to state it simply,  the most awful test that I have ever had to endure! ( I can think of a whole range of [...]

Lily is my name . . . procrastination is my game.

"Hi everyone , I'm Lily and I am a procrastinator " You begin with the harmless intention of doing an activity as simple as checking your email and 2-3 hours later you find yourself reading fanfiction on tumblr. It just happens that way. I am a procrastinator. I have been one for as long as I can [...]

Mid-term Madness

Holidays and vacations are my life source. They are times during which I practice triple "R"( Rest, Relax and Recharge). When on holiday , I disengage from the person that I am on campus and I become mellow, carefree and (dare I say ) lazy. My alarm which usually goes off at 5 am is [...]

Lily: The Unexpected Feminist

The initial reaction from many people when I inform them of the fact that I am a feminist is flabbergast . Personally, I don't understand the shock. I did go to an ALL girls high school whose motto is :A school of excellence where girls are leading courageously, exploring their unique potential confidently and serving [...]

Liebster Award !

I've been nominated by  autumnscrubs for a Liebster award !  Thank you for adding a dash of awesomeness to my day 🙂 I didn't know what a Liebster award was before but it's pretty cool !The main objective of the Liebster award , I've gathered, is to answer a few questions and post them on to your [...]

Cram. Pass. Forget

 I experienced acute cardiogenic shock as I scanned through the paper. My brain cells spontaneously apoptosed at the sight of question number one. A sharp pain moved  peristaltically along the length of my body, eventually settling in my abdomen. I took a deep breath and turned the page , anxious to discover what other pathological horrors lay [...]

Optimistic Lily

When I was in matric , my plans regarding the weekend were usually those along the lines of Katy Perry's Last Friday Night ( TGIF) because I was , as you can imagine, the resident party girl in my school.   Okay , that was a bit hyperbolic (  the use of gross exaggeration for comic [...]

Girl School Alum

My sister , who is younger than me if i might add, thought that my post about Lecture Hall 7 Hottie ( read it ! ) made me seem boy crazy if not entirely obsessed.Before you judge me, read my patient history.Age : 18 years Sex: Female Personality: Introvert with a cheeky extrovert side Education [...]
