Took a while for me to find that ‘new post’ option on my wordpress.com dashboard; Friggin’ cobwebs!

I always thought writer’s block was a myth – What do you expect? I am Larry Sushey’s humble follower – Well, not until it hit me; I stopped blogging a while back exams being my excuse. I wrote a few pieces during my hiatus and trust me; none of them made any sense. The struggle was great.

Immediately after my exams, I was meant to start a compulsory course; BTS (Basic Therapeutic Skills) where we learn basic things ranging from Anaesthesia to Nursing, But no activity. The school neglected my class and I became dormant and lazier. The block worsened. I couldn’t write shii to save my life.

Trust me, exams sucked the little creativity I had. I couldn’t even write a bloody post to tell you guys that hey my exams sucked please put me in your prayers so that I won’t fail.

I seriously needed prayers. I couldn’t even write a struggle short post to solicit for prayers. It was that terrible.  Different people were asking me why my blog was dormant.

Y U NO BLOG?

To be honest tho, The initial block was because of the fear of failure. Cuz if I fail, people will talk;

‘Assuming she was reading instead of blogging and tweeting rubbish she would have passed.’

I know I shouldn’t care about what people think or say, but one thing is for sure; I wasted a great deal of time last year tweeting irrelevant rubbish.

Anyways, God being the awesome God he is, I passed -not aced- my exams. I could have done better but I’m sha happy I passed and I’m moving on to the next class. Hi haters!

SIDEBAR : In any exam, not everybody is bound to pass. Not like we didn’t read the same notes, texts and have the same lectures. some things just happen. I want y’all to pray for my classmates that will be retaking the exam. Its not an easy task to read Biochemistry and shii twice. Frustration can set in. Nobody deserves to fail cuz we all put in our best effort.

See me talking. I was so sure of failure. Failing physiology especially. I was too sure that I even arranged all my physiology texts and materials at the foot of my bed; expecting the worst.

You know that feeling when you know you’re fu*%#d? That feeling when out of all the questions in an exam you can’t answer a single question confidently and you begin to wonder ‘why did I bother to read sef?’ Yeah that feeling. And you know failure is not an option so you answer all the questions confidently. I wrote so much rubbish with so much confidence I became a fan of my own genius. I didn’t forget to leave a few jokes for the examiners so they could at least laugh and show some mercy.

I guess it worked for me.

The college chose to neglect my class for a little while -2 months unofficial holiday-  So I was at home eating, trying to get fat, sleeping playing games, watching series and all. Just being unproductive to cut I short.

Well, they finally remembered us. school started on Friday and its back to school tomorrow 😦 *Le sigh*

I didn’t mean to bore you guys but I kinda lost my funny bone while going through bouts of depression. There seems to be no remedy.

What a struggle post.

 

****************************

Special Shout out to my new friend Bobola. He was there for me while I was depressed and he helped me out of my writer’s block. :*

It’s been a long time since I wrote in this category; Life in Medilag has been really boring. Hence, nothing to tell you guys.
September is probably the best time I have had in med school. Apart from being my birth month and all, we had almost 3 weeks lecture free!!! 3 awesome weeks of lounging and reading for exams. Apparently, we ended all our third incourses in Anatomy, Physiology and Biochemistry almost simultaneously.
The incourses were ok. If I must say! With the exception of my biochemistry tho. METAB incourse. Like the hardest freakin’ thing. I coulda sworn that the questions were in Latin!
On to the fourth course then on to Professional Exam
The Big Guy. My very first professional exam. Eerily called Pros/MB.
I’ve different many tales of Pros. Of people who aced all their incourses and fared woefully in Pros. On the better side, people who didn’t pass a single incourse and aced Pros. Or people who failed all their incourses and even Pros and go on to ace the resit.
None is my portion sha. My incourses have been..well..uhm…None of your business 😀 but im looking forward to acing my first professional exams. I can’t even think of resiting..not to talk of repeating. It scares me.
So my MB should be in December/January. The time is not certain but whenever, I have to b can tale ready to kill ém cuz I’m gonna be examined on everything I’ve learnt since January!! Bloody hell!!!
I can’t even remember how to draw the brachial plexus *sigh*
Seeing as fourth incourse should last about six weeks, and we’re almost 3 weeks in, The finals might just be in December .
Anywho, I have to quit tweeting, blogging and any other side thing so I can take studying seriously. So I guess this is gonna be my last post in a really long while.
When I get back, I’ll probably have my own 30 day challenge. If my brain cells are not dried out that is. I really love what Qurr is doing with his. Very well thought out and all.
That should be all.
Hope to come back soon.
Thanks for reading.
PS: I don’t mind topic suggestions for my 30 day challenge. You can drop them in the comment box or tweet them at @Kemmiiii.

Thanks 😀
Ciao.

Hey People!! I know I have come again and thanks for coming again; But I have to start off by appreciating you all, Thank you for the Comments, Tweets, RTs, Commendations, Honest Criticism and all. I am genuinely overwhelmed. I love y’all.. God go make una bigger o!!.

In case you Carried last on my last post written by @Mizz_Starzz see it here

So you asked for the boring life of a Med Student…That I shall give you..

All errors are totally @Dhamyhan’s fault.

*************

This Post was meant to come up yesterday night and I was meant to tell you how I wrote my anatomy CA on the Head and the Neck which was actually okay but I can’t say if I’ll ace it cuz I was very sure of acing my CA on the lower limb but the result proved me wrong…

Have you ever been in such a situation;

The Efficientos of the class announce; Blah Blah Result is out!! Then you go…OMG! OMG!! OMG!!! Then..

On your way to the notice board —-> 😀

When you see people coming back —-> 🙂

You see that brilliant dude —-> 😐

You see the general performance —-> 😦

Your result —-> 😥

Hehe…Noticed how I used you and your?

I remember one time @bYbaaaa and I were on our way to the notice board too. This particular Alhaja..ever smiling and all was coming back, Her expression…PRICELESS..Dare greet her and chop hot slap.

Well, I was too lazy to post last night. Don’t lemme bore you with the details of how I slept early and still woke up a Few minutes Past 8am and I had a Lecture for 8am. Osinubi for that matter. I survived.

Well, I dunno how to arrange everything I want to tell you guys. Lemme do it Chronologically….My Lord!! that red line did not show!! I can spell!!!

In this Medilag ehn, its as if all the departments plan to release result upon result when there is an impending in-course. See what the physiology department did last Friday…Anatomy CA was this week and they decided to release our second in-course results. If I must say, That is the worst general performance I have seen in my entire life!!  But bone o! That exam was hard and the time was not even it. Anyway the Lecturers told us to expect the worst but it was the “worstest”.

Why do you want to know my score? Na you pay my school fees??

Kuro jare!! #Movingon

At this point, I can decide to beg those mamas in the church always calling me “doctor” to stop o! I never write first MB.

Then we have Biochemistry in-course in two weeks, which is sadly a day before my birthday 😦 . Anatomy Department decided to add more salt. They released the second in-course result today..Another cycle of depression.

*sigh* but what can man do? You will read, read, read, Turn to Iced Fish inside the cold room, Become furniture inside the library, Drink all the coffee your money can buy and still not pass, Im telling you; It is not life.

I’m not talking about myself o! Ehen!

But Anatomy lab has been fun lately, We have been dissecting the skull and all..

YES!! While cutting through the calvarium of our cadaver, Sukanmi used the saw to cut my hand by mistake 😦 I have taken appropriate shots and drugs for it tho but I can’t lie to you! I was scared sh*ttless! What if the cadaver died of AIDS or something. My stupid friend @bYbaaaa couldn’t care less..She started telling me all my stuff she was gonna inherit. So much for love.

That Aside, You know how I told you My cadaver has not been really helpful? Well I guess I can take that back now cuz The cadaver has the best brain so far!! ^_^ Other tables had rotten brains… Do I smell a SUB? People started propanding theories like he didn’t use his brain well that is why..well..warreva! We have a good brain…This is not a gbagaun o.

Then Today, I started wondering why the Histology attendants like lying. They will tell you “you will see the large lumen between the interstitium and the medulla” (Don’t google this..I wrote crap) But when you get to the Microscope all you will see is Pink or grey with some dots in the middle.. And we have to identify these things in the Steeple Chase o. *sigh* it is well.

There you have it…The really boring life of a grossly lazy Medico.

*****

PS: If you did not take the hint, My birthday is coming!! Y’all that promised to take me to the shrine <_< I have taken screenshots of your comments. They will be used against you in the court of law (inside joke).

Also Help a sisteh out..

You see? I’m humble 🙂

You should Follow Wana‘s 30 day challenge! Its really interesting.

Brain – Really?? No..Really??

Histology – Study of tissues. (Histo = Tissue)

“Since long time i never write new post..Since long time I never write new post. Many of you go dey wonder why your geh never write new post! I just dey looku and laffu..I just dey looku and laafu!! I dey look and laff! I dey look and laff!!”

                                                                                                                                                 -Merix of Fela’s  I Laugh’

Don’t let me deceive you…Apart from looking and laughing, No inspiration! Plus laziness!! Plus I‘ve been so busy!! You know na? Med school (Exams and shyt) Plus Dadddy’s birthday Plus silly guests 😦 and all!! So pretty busy.

Since the event of Med Diary (4), My wordpress mentor <_< Warned me not  to post anything If I have nothing to post about. He also warned me about too many guest writers; People want to see me write. To be factual, I really don’t know how to write about anything apart from my journals and people seem to respond well to my Journals and Med Diaries. So I guess I’ll stick to those. It’s my blog right? The baba is strict sef! When I wanted to use exam as an excuse for my laziness, The baba did not gree o! He said I have to be committed!! *God Help Me* I love him tho!! I’m sure you want to know who he is…Aproko will not kee you!!

People have been bugging me for a new Med Diary. But my life is not that interesting na?? This is not even a Med Diary. Hello?? 4.5?? Its just me apologising for Med Diary (4).

PAUZEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

As I was trying to type this ish! I noticed somethingOn my Time_ine #withanl….Subs were flying all over the place and I was like this should be interesting..what has happened again?? Before I could say AH! PHCN did the deed!! I was sad!! They sure know how to make somebody carry last. But never will I carry last  in that kind of thing. GOD FORBID

Without wasting time, I found my C1-01 Launched my Opera Mini Brower and searched for #withanL…Just so I could be in the know. rather than asking stupid questions like a last carrier that I am. So I got the inside scoop.

If you’re here to know what happened, or you are looking for some kind of controversy or for a funny story,  I’m sorry but you are in the wrong place *sweeps you away with ugwu leaves*

The only thing I learnt from this is that you should not put your private life out there. Whatever happens in your private life should stay there. You should learn from it too.

Even though I blog about my personal life, I try as much as possible to keep my ‘private’ life out of it.

Its really amazing how the Citizens of Twitville are so interested in Blogsville now because of the recent Brouhahas! It has been fun tho! Starting from the Twitter Celebs to the Virgin Boy… They obviously left the people wanting more. I found this on my Timeline.

The people of Twitville are actually enjoying these Uprisings.

In case you missed the Blogsville drama, I aint giving out no links :p I have been too nice to ye last carriers!! Do your own homework!! If you want the links tho say it and you will pay :D..Hehe! Blogsville is the shinzit!!

I don’t have much to say about the Celeb post but I really had fun going through the comments!! Almost 1000 comments!! Who does this?? GothPrince why you noo come write for me? Some people built houses there..People advertising shoes and all..Im sure you would have made a fortune selling Gala and La Casera in there. It was some really serious ish!! Some other people were just joking around and the Voltrons and Victims (people that did not get follow backs) doing their thing.

I noticed that the people of twitville are’nt really interested in blogville unless a post has something about twitter in it. i know this because my two posts Anatomy of a Twitfight and #NIGERIANTWITTER are my most viewed posts till date. But in recent times, they seem to be everywhere. Waiting for a controversy.

Did you read The Encore to that Celeb post? I was with Goth Prince on that one. The points he gave for why twitter is serious were so on point and I loved it.

Should I still title this Med Diary 4.5?? O well.

Moving on..*changes gear*

The Virgin Boy…People pretty much missed his point. I felt his point was that You can be a virgin and still be cool. Taking him for example. People just turned the simple message upside down. They must sha see the flip side of everything !*sigh* Some people were even like why should he tell us that he is a virgin?? OK. He can’t tell us that he is a virgin but its okay to write about your sexcapades?? it is well. In another light, It’s his blog, It’s his life so why do you even care? If you dictate what you want him to write, It’s no longer his blog.

Blog: an online diary. So you can do whatever you like with your blog and there are different types of blogs out there…From the blogs with serious Life lessons, To the Sex  blogs, To the Funny as hell, To the Relationship blogs, To the down right Crazy, The Poets, The inspirational ones, The religious ones, The political ones (citation needed), The techies, The Sport blogs, Those storytellers and so much more….Hehe, There is now a Dear Auntie  Kemi section on The Great Tula’s blog sef.

Im beginning to rant.

I thi….That Reminds me!!! This recent trend of nude avatars!! Why evils?? Do you need followers that much?? I think there are better ways of getting followers than showing the whole world your nakedness. A boobvatar can suffice. Testimonies anyone?? Or be smart. Tweet wise things, Or you can even buy followers I know they do this. Nakedness is not the way o!! Think of the future.  Your bride price is reducing..minus 50kobo per hour.

As for me o!! Im trying my possible best not to do anything that will hinder me from becoming WHO president…Be yimuing there o!! Instead of you to famz now…You might want a job in the UN building then..you will now run to me. OK!

Ok. I'll stop here.I promise not to bore you much, and fewer guest writers. 
Thanks for taking your time out to read this till the end. 
 REMEMBER! all your private affairs should stay outta the public eye.

***********

Sorry for the length. I just had to.

PS: I did not go through the stress of putting up all those links for nothing o! ehen!!

First off! I want to appreciate people that have been encouraging me..you guys rock!!

No! Im not here to RANT! And This is not #The RantingsOfaGrosslyLazyMedico because Im lazy but not grossly lazy.. You feel me? 8) Kenny You are still sick for that comment..

Anyways, before I digress, Its about my week..HECTIC WEEK..

So I had my Physiology incourse on Tuesday! Yeah the one that I did not know the difference betweeen Tubular resorption and Tubular secretion..I did it sha and Im not gonna tell you how it was :P..Just because my First incourse was a sad story!  I was so happy with myself at the end of the exam but the result was an apology..

I was so heartbroken it felt as if…the more you read, the more you fail! I wont let that happen again tho..I will keep on reading…I wish I could read like some people tho… “read without ceasing’ Im sure if i try it i would drop dead! o well! Different strokes for different folks! BTW its not everybody that reads that passes, so also, It’s not everybody that dosent read that fails some people just have to listen in class #darrisol!

Sha Wednesday came, I had my problem based learning (PBL) presentation in Anatomy…PBL is this cool new way of learning..It involves giving the students a problem to solve..like in our case, They will give us a Patients case.. and the patients history, so we have to go about the anatomy of the affected part and then give a diagnosis..its meant to be cool but the circumstances surrounding it make it uncool so i’m not always interested….

Gehn Gehn! The next day was anatomy incourse! Curse my alarm clock! I got home that fateful Wednesday afternoon after the PBL ish and I was so tired, So i made up my mind to read a little, sleep around 7 and wake up at 12 to read..Omo mehn! I woke up at 6.30..I was so mad..Anyway I cannot blame anybody…I dint tell anyone I was having an exam the next day..even if..its everyman for himself..

The exam came, it went obviously..I wont tell you how it was too :p but it is well..

The highlight of the week!! Steeple Chase Yesterday (Friday) I’m sure you must have heard very sad stories about steeple chase but i’m not gonna paint a sad picture here, I will just tell you how it goes..

Well, steeplechase is an anatomy practical where there are 100 stations with different questions.. and there are a few resting spots where you can sit down..As the name implies, Each student is at a station or a resting spot…You have to answer your question in 30 seconds and after 30 seconds,the bell goes and you move on to the next…its quite hard tho..

They pin muscles, tie nerves veins, arteries and all sorts and they will ask you to identify them…There are also histology slides you have to identify which can be quite confusing i tell you because everything is pink and the ones I crammed did not even sho face..It is well..What I love about steeple chase is that even if you dunno it, you can write rubbish cuz there is no negative marking ^_^

And I met @MsSensitivity yesterday 🙂 So nice ^_^

*******************************************************************

PS: I also met @bule_jr for a short while in the morning (Friday) before my steeplechase…he is so nice ^_^ ..Hope to see him  more often..He is also a relationship blogger..see his blog here …I cant believe I forgot that 😦

The last time I updated in this category, I was going off about my GAS202 exam…well, I wrote the exam…T’was quite hard…but all is well…

Med Psychology held the next day…God Bless my legs…they led me to the right place at the right time…where I saw PQs…Asin! Divine intervention…I was going on my own o! And I saw a small group of people…being the jovial person I am (yes im jovial) I went to greet them…Ashey they were practicing Past Questions…Omo! #dontdull Me sef I chooked my head!
To God be the glory the questions were repeated…divine intervention!!
The annoying thing about that day was that the exam was meant to start at 12noon but African time came to play…I was so pissed cuz I was tired of reading and I felt totally blank after sleeping and waking up…Imagine writing the exam around 4pm…The woman is lucky that she repeated questions sha! If not, she would have left the exam hall with a few blessings on her head apart from the minor ones for making the exam start late…
With Med Psych done and forgotten, I had Anatomy on my mind…won wa gbe NLC strike de! I can’t lie I was happy!! I wasn’t half ready for anatomy but on the other hand, It was gonna reduce the time I had for physiology Incourse which was meant to hold the following Tuesday (i.e tomorrow) …
Only for them to cancel the strike later that day!!! May God make them BIGGER!! I don’t want to use the P word on them…
That is how the rest of last week wasted…
I don’t think the drab neurophysiology lectures should be called part of the week cuz really the lecturer does not help matters at all!! Besides we still have Physiology incourse on our minds and you are trying to add more…Plx don’t let man pikins brain reach Breaking point even without knowing anything.
So the NLC people made them shift our Anatomy incourse to this week even after the strike was called off…
Here I am tryna understand the difference between Tubular Secretion and Tubular Reabsorption they just keep mixing up in my head…The effects of vasopressin..Beht why must almost everything have both sympathetic and parasympathetic innervations?? *sighs* It is well
Now we heard that the Non-Teaching sef want to go on a 5-Day strike…they should better respect their pant sizes cuz Emi o raye shit mehn!!
Only God can help us.

PS. All those uncles that will come and be telling me that neurophysiology is important…I know o! This is a SUB :p #theyknothemselves
