The past few days for me have been horrible! Horrible doesn’t even exactly cut it!

I’ve been living like a lifeless zombie more or less.

They want to kill us!

‘E don be!’

The thing is that this session is supposed to last for 9 months but we’ve spent only 7 of the 9 months and they’re trying to make us write our finals before the stipulated 9 months because the college is running behind schedule.

Making us suffer for the management’s inadequacies.

My present dilemma;

Pharmacology incourse on Monday. They just brought out a list of topics from the previous incourses that are gonna surface in the incourse on Monday. Plain evil.

Microbiology department. We were scheduled to write our third incourse before the second incourse and they just can’t seem to make up their minds. Haphazardness.

Our finals are slated to Start on the 18th of February. That’s a month from today. We’ll be writing incourses till the 14th and the University rules stipulate that we should have at least a week lecture-free before any major exam. We have just 2 working days.
We had to file a petition for postponement because that arrangement is *sigh*
Some people failed to sign the petition. Trust me to sign for them.

Something appears to have died in the AC vents in my class. The stench kills.

LUTH Phenomenon; No Light, No Water, Mosquitoes. Sleepless nights.

With all the incourses in sight, I can’t take my time out to revise for finals.

Some lecturers come to class and disseminate 150 slides in an hour. Not sure what form of lecturing that is.

Community Health Department insists that we prepare presentations for them. Like we don’t have enough on our plates.

Knowing fully well the kind of pressure we are under, some lecturers don’t deem it wise to give us notes.

Some of the ones that give us notes just come to the class to read out their Powerpoints to us like we can’t see or something.
Some others just come to talk to themselves.

I had a spat with a Lab Attendant. She kept on hammering on the fact that I disrespected her because she’s short. Height issues.

They want to kill us!

Field trip to LAWMA. Too pissed to enjoy it because we first went to Lagos Island to pick up ONE person before heading out to the Landfill at Ojota. Waste of my precious sleeping time.

Pharmacology Lab hasn’t ended. Like we haven’t had enough.

I still don’t get the idea behind epithelia. I stay cramming them.

The Lab Reports keep on coming!

On a normal day, when there’s no light, I’ll have gone to charge my phone under the tree at COMPSSA for 50 bucks. Right now, I really don’t care.

I’ve lost all the holiday weight I managed to gain.

No proper sleep. Any sleep is guilty sleep.

Classmates stay oppressing.

I bought a text only to discover it had an e-format afterwards.

I still don’t get histology. All I see is pink. Purple on some other days. The lecturer keeps pointing at Neutrophils, Cancers, calcification and all sorts. I don’t see nothing. Maybe I wasn’t born with histological eyes. Who knows?

I cannot come and die because of book.

Anyhow, I can’t let these few weeks of tiredness and sleeplessness hinder me from greatness.
My driving force right now is the fact that my immediate seniors are already in their 4th year of Med school.

Daddy do it for your girl. Help me overcome these obstacles and let me dump this my Lab Coat in exchange for a Clinical coat.

Tired!

I only get the urge to write med diaries when I’m overwhelmed or when I write a horrible Incourse.

Its a horrible Incourse this time around; Pharmacology Incourse once again.

Those people stay slaying.

God knows that I have never studied for an Incourse the way I studied for this Incourse. I was lackadaisical in studying for the for the first Incourse but this second time around, I put In my heart and my soul (even though I watched small Yoruba film) to study for this Incourse.

I studied all weekend, skipped church, didn’t sleep for up to 6 hours altogether from Saturday till this morning; I dozed a little early this morning so that I won’t snooze in the exam hall. Dassol.

Everything was to no avail. Sadly.

I’m not even as angry as I was when I first came out of the exam hall.

I think I vented all my anger in my Uncle Deolu’s ears. God bless his ears.

My first tweet was: “Gini bu antifungals?!” Which I believe is Igbo for ‘what are antifungals”

The thing is; the pharmacology department is a very haphazard and unorganized department. They’re so disorganized they make Ojuelegba look like Manhattan. There is a course outline they are supposed to abide by but the prefer to start from Exodus, go to Songs of Solomon and come back to Genesis. No sense of organization whatsoever and its highly disgusting.

That aside, the lecturers just come to the class to read their PowerPoints out as if the students dunno how to interpret what the PowerPoints are saying. No interaction whatsoever and usual me; I phase out in such classes and I don’t remember attending any lecture even though I was in all the lectures. And reading through all the notes, everything seemed foreign.

So, I studied for the exam according to the the materials I had. Seeing as I cannot kill myself because of book, I studied everything, made jottings, recalled, tried to memorize, and all what not. At the end of the day everything was all jumbled up in my head. That’s why I don’t even feel bad about crash reading; when I can’t remember something I read about an hour ago, how much more something I read weeks ago. Maybe I’m just too lazy. Who knows?

In today’s Incourse, we had the usual 200 MCQs with the usual minus one negative mark. These people decided to set 25 of 200 questions on a single note which they specifically asked us not to read because that topic was not part of the second incourse. I didn’t even have said note; I didn’t even know we were taught said topic not to talk of being told not to read the said topic. Well, I’m glad it turned out to be a mass something. I’d be crushed to find out that I was the only suegbe.

Even my efficient friends; Bukky and Ife who practically sit down under the lecturers’ nose (I swear you can take saliva samples from them) were affected. It was that bad. These girls are my own personal Linda Ikeji/Google. Anything I need to know. They are choosing to blame our class rep because of the misinformation. They think he’s the one behind global warming too. That serious.

My own grouse is that if I had slept all through the weekend, I won’t have been angry. I mean; of all the things I crammed, how many surfaced? What is the need of studying and studying when you’ll still get murked?

Still on still, Pharmacology department can’t hold me back.

Hi beautiful readers,
You’re having a better Friday than me I trust. Yeah you should.

Seeing as I just got screwed over once more.
I just finished writing my Epidemiology first incourse and it was very iffy. T’was like the notes I studied were for a different course.
I think I underestimated the Community Health department a little. I admit; I didn’t study too hard but trust me, I studied. I knew all I had to know, crammed all I had to, practiced all I had to and ended up feeling like a block head in the exam hall. How does that happen?

They set us up with 40 questions with a negative mark for each wrong question. License to fail.
Out of so many notes, only 40 almost impossible questions.
To make matters worse, I forgot my calculator and some perpetually angry short man announced; “Borrowing Of calculator is not allowed”. Chopped and screwed.
God will judge that man that didn’t let me run out to get my calculator.

Leave everything to Jesus; Jesus take the wheel.

Initially, I thought I was the only one that got murked. Many BBM updates brightened my day. In a weird way. See for yourself;

Took the words right out of my mouth;

When I write exams like these -that make it seem like I didn’t study- I thank God that I slept the night before.

Anyways, it’s on to the next one! Those Pathology PowerPoints can’t study themselves.

Toodles!!
