School’s Out, the Doc’s In

Here I am, gleefully throwing away my identity as a medical student. 5 years of medical school passed by in a flash, and in a blink of the eye, my salutation has changed. I wished time hadn’t passed so quickly.

Friends and fellow batchmates (and now colleagues) of the Class of 2017: all the best and may we never forget why we chose this profession in the first place.

Almost at the end (:

My second and third week of exams passed by rather uneventfully, save for a flash flood right outside our school just before our Physics Paper 2 – thank goodness I decided to arrive in school early that day.

And the papers were all pretty manageable, except for Economics Paper 2 (Essay Writing) and Chemistry Paper 1 (Multiple Choice). And now I am on my first day of a 6 days break before my next, as well as last, paper on November 30th.

Feeling pretty good now! (:

Beginning of the end? Or end of the beginning?

Well, there’s only 2 more hours to go before the end of this week. And next week would be the start of my A levels – something I am both glad and worried about. Glad because it’s finally the beginning of the end – A levels would never be over if it doesn’t start. Worried because I have no idea how well I am going to do – I have always been mediocre in my studies (if not a shade below average) and really, I have no idea what’s going to be printed on the certificate I am going to get in March next year.

And once my A levels are over, it’s going to be the official end of my secondary education (even though we have already graduated – our school likes to leave us hanging), and also almost the end of my teenage years. So, in a way, I suppose it’s the end of the beginning. A new chapter awaits me. Sometimes I wish life is really like a book, where you can flip right to the end and find out the ending.

But for now, that new chapter would be Transition Metals.
