Looking for Lily 🔎

I offer my most humble apology to any individual who yearned for real answers for their very important and incredibly serious questions but were redirected to my blog of feels instead. Where in the world is Lily ?  I'm on my Obstetrics and Gynaecology rotation ! I'm doing cool things like delivering babies and assisting in [...]

Shifting Dullness and other GIT moments

Scheduled Post: I am in the process of fighting for my academic survival (studying for exams) and shall resume regular blogging from the 18th of June. Replies will most probably be slow, so please do not take any offence when confronted by silence. 😀 😀 ❤ ❤ Shifting Dullness Head of surgery department : Can [...]

The Awkwardness ( and Hilarity) Ensues

I am in desperate search of a new fairy godmother as the one appointed on my behalf has failed to fulfil her mandate . Her responsibilities include reducing the amount of awkwardness circulating in my life, a task at which she has failed judging by the amount of awkwardness I have had to endure in the [...]

Sleep Deprived and Hungry

I am writing a test based on  111 (one hundred and eleven)  lectures in ten days ! Can somebody please hand me the keys to a fully-stocked liquor cabinet now. I have an urgent need to drown my sorrows. One module near completion and I can say I understand the reason for second year's sinister reputation. The [...]

A Doctor In Training

Being on campus feels like stepping into a parallel universe. Everything is exactly as it was but it feels so different returning as a second year. I'll probably only feel like a second year when I get asked for directions from a lost first year in a few weeks time.  It's amazing, that two months [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Back to disenchanting reality !

My week long recess has come to an abrupt end and tomorrow I will be writing the pharmacology mid-module test . It is with a heavy heart that I bid adieu to movie and series marathons , unhurried awakenings and leisurely reclination . Tomorrow I will have to readjust to the bustle of the MB,ChB [...]

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 [...]

Pharmacology : A new chapter

Pathology has come to an end and I am set to embark on a brand new adventure : Pharmacology ! Pharmacology is the study of drug action . Med students are not cool enough to learn how to make drugs, so we just learn how to use them. I am really excited to study Pharmacology because my father does [...]

End Of Block Weekend !

I've done it ! I've survived six weeks of Pathology ! We wrote our end of block assessment yesterday ( it was a  nightmare -  #death by chemical pathology) and today was the practical test ( which was a lot better ). I can finally breathe ! I have 48 hours during which I do not have [...]

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 [...]
