radiology exam and planning…
June 14, 2007 § Leave a comment
It’s exam week in radiology and I had been busy browsing through my radiology books. Seriously, no intense studying with long hours of memorizing long lists of signs or symptoms. Nice. I mean, not to underestimate the field, but radiology has the characteristic of being simple on the mind, but tough on the eyes. Anyway, I have a not-that-good grade on the imaging examination, and hopefully a great one on the second exam with the supervisor. Although I haven’t been the Grade-Maniac I used to be for a long time since I left internal medicine, the fact is an “A” tastes sweet even before it’s written on your report card. So, yeah, I’d love to get an “A”. The real deal: no one can judge your future based on a short exam session. A grade is your PAST, not your FUTURE. Let’s always keep things in perspective.
I’ve been struggling to make several decisions regarding my studies these past few days. I must admit I haven’t made any firm decision yet. I don’t know what I’m waiting for though. Perhaps, more signs from above, regarding what I should do. I mean, we are talking about things in July and September, but still, time can pass freakin quickly and it’s always best to ANTICIPATE rather than just REACT.
For the sake of sanity, I decided to go out with a good friend today. We talked for 5 hours, with lunch, and even for me that’s one hell of a long talk. Well, with me gone from the hospital for almost 5 months already, it’s impossible to keep track of people; who’s getting pregnant, who’s breaking up with a boyfriend, who’s getting married, who’s getting all the special treatment just because he’s a son of somebody really important at the hospital. And of course we updated each other about our lives. A lot has happened in 5 months… To sum up everything in just 5 hours is quite a job well done, I think.
