Entry #12

Food I’ve had over the past few weeks .

Posted in Progress


I spent about 3 hours cooking okra. It tasted so bad it made me want to quit cooking forever. 

Two pages into Robbins, I’m reminded of how my imaginary boyfriend broke my heart in a hypothetical scenario I created months ago. 

Now I’m upset and can’t get anything done for the rest of the day. Uh..

Entry #10

A 55 year-old man came with a complaint of abdominal discomfort. After his history was taken and examination was done, he was diagnosed with epigastric hernia. A prominent swelling was noticed over his skull, centrally just a little above his forehead. When asked, he said he had it since as long as he could remember, and it never progressed in its size. He had lived with it as it never caused him as any problem.

We, students(about 20 of us who attended out of the 38 posted) were asked to examine the swelling. All of us surrounded the patient’s bed, took his history, and quickly proceeded to examine the bump over his head. 

As usual, I do nothing but stand next to peers and watch them. I notice them asking the patient the same question over and over again. He gives us vague answers to our open-ended questions.

I was surprised to see him have no problem with 3-4 students poking the bump over his  head at once. This continued for about 20 mins. TWENTY FREAKING MINUTES. 

I wonder what his inner thoughts were while we examined him, considering that the swelling wasn’t even the reason he was admitted in the ward.

Entry #9 

I feel like a heathy individual now that I’m no longer on Facebook or Instagram . Scrolling through your feed and laughing at random memes is fun until you realise how many hours go unproductive every single day. I deleted my Facebook account in March, deactivated my Instagram last week. I’ll still on Quora and Good reads for obvious reasons.

It’s raining outside. Now would be the right time to make a study schedule.
