A year older, A year wiser*

October 28, 2008 at 9:28 pm (Uncategorized)

As the saying goes, “A year older, A year wiser”. I guess it doesn’t apply to me after all.

Well, I turned 19 on the 28th of October. I’m so grateful for being alive for 19 years. Looking back at the years, I haven’t seen any improvements in me. I’m still me, the old me back in Secondary school. Some grow wiser as they age. Some just become likewise. No, I don’t celebrate my birthdays for the fact that I find celebrating birthdays is like celebrating your death. Every birthday, you get older. And by getting older, you’re nearing death. Some may say, “Why not just enjoy life as it is?”

Well, keep on enjoying. Then you look back and realise that you’ve never really done anything worth mentioning, When You’re Dead.

6 more months. Sad, but so true.

It’s the new school term! A week ago, it was the start of 2.2 In-campus. Not really looking forward to it for the fact that we’d be graduating in 6 months. I love school and I don’t want to go to work. I’m not ready to be a nurse after this because I know my standard. I still feel that I’m not good enough in the clinical area. Maybe, I’d extend my learning journey to be really comfortable with clinical practice. If I had an assload of money to my name, I’ll go on learning till my memory fails me. Being a student is great, y’know?

Anyway, it was quite a shock for me on the first day of school. Was allocated to my not preferred Electives, Oncology. BUT, after the first session, it really isn’t that bad afterall. I mean, the lecturer put it out to be simple. No class tests and exams. Only A phase test and A group project. The theory part is just for you to know. So, I don’t get it when people say it’s hard. True, the theory can be quite mind-draining but look on the bright side. You don’t have to sit for any Theory papers! So far, I’m lovin’ the class. The lecturer is great, lessons can be quite interesting too.

It’s just too bad that some of us don’t get our choice of Electives but being allocated to B-E-G is not a funny issue. Imagine choosing Oncology/Psychiatry and you get B-E-G instead. My heart goes out to those who experience that. Don’t get me wrong. I ain’t mocking B-E-G. Long nonsense to explain here and I don’t expect anyone to feel the drift.

Approximately 6 more months to graduation. Most of us will be Enrolled Nurses right after that, some guys will serve the nation for some 2.5 years and a handful of us will move on to a higher learning, a diploma. Whatever it is, enjoy your every minute in school.

I thought of posting something today but the moment I logged in, I feel so fucking sleepy.

I pity my dusty blog.

Updates will be made by the following Sunday. I will make it a point. Hopefully. XD
