Tired studying
 
My gooosh, am getting tired studying... Am tired of teachers who talks to you like you`re still in primary school, and a college who treats you like one is 15. Am tired of walking the same college corridors and the same streets taking me to the college, library, home and college again.
 
But am thanking the universe every time I see the glowing faces of my sweet classmates...;) You really make the days going smoother. Girls sending notes from one to another, hiding snacks under the table and share with others when the teacher can`t see you, eating breakfast, drawing mehendi on each others hands during class, asking me what I did in the weekend when the teacher just asked everyone to answer her very important question regarding group dynamics,  writing assignments but pretend as if you`re taking down notes...Goosh, I don`t know what other crazy things I`ve seen happening during class over the years.. 
 
Man, we just got to have one hell of a party when we finish!!
 
God bless you all....:)

''I'm fine'', f*ck that...

Am getting tired of living in a shallow society where everyone is lying to them self and others, as one is trying to obtain a facade where lying would be a way of convincing one self that what they are saying is actually true. 

- How are you?
- Am ''fine''..

Really? There are a million ways to express once emotional status, and you choose ''fine'' as one of the best one, 365 days a year. 
But am guessing that you're not ''fine'' every day. Cause in the end you're also a human being who change emotional status every now and then. Some people more than others. Myself is sure getting more sensitive and closer to tears the older I get.
But why are we constantly giving the same answer to the same question, every day and almost every time someone is asking us? Am asking how you are because I want to know and thereby expecting a sincere answer. Sure, I guess people are asking how one is doing in order to just acknowledge a persons presence. And giving a simple and uncomplicated answer is just easier. We don't want to bother anyone with our problems right? But are we not more human than we can't face a person's daily ups and downs? And yeas, if you're really, really happy people shouldn't be bothered to know. In fact, that joy should be shared and most of the time your joy is others joy as well. We live in a collective where everyone is facing more or less the same problems in life. 
So f*k that you're ''fine'' and tell me the truth instead!

''The monk who sold his ferrari''

I just love this book! Everyone should read it...:)

'' Shortly after you have awakened,go into your sanctuary of silence. Get still and focused. Then ask yourself this question: what would I do today if tidy was my last?The key is to really get into the meaning of this question. Mentally list all the things you would do, the people you would call and the moments you would savor. Envision yourself doing these things with great energy. Visualize how you would treat your family and your friends. Even picture how you would treat total strangers if today was your last day on the planet. As I told you earlier,when you live every day as if it was your last, your life will take on a magical quality.''

To infinity and beyond, Love

Back to India!
 
I've been back in India for a month now, and it didn't take long before I felt one was back on track again - theories first two weeks and after that we started our seven weeks of clinicals, and INTERNSHIP posting! Don't tell me what's the difference between regular clinicals and Internship, except that we'll get different type of evaluation and probably should stay a little more focused or something. 
My first Internship started in the ICU!! So, I was quit happy about that:) It's been one of my most interesting postings so fare, and I've got the chance to practice more on my skills such as putting catheter and withdraw blood... 
 
Celebrated Onam this weekend, and of course I had to wear my saree for the last Onam celebration!
 
 
 
And I got actually back from Bangalore this morning! Our college participated in the state SNA (student nurses association) competition in the weekend. So the college sent twelve students, and I got to participate in "Ms/Mr SNA Personality"...;) 
It actually went really well for us with totally FOUR Gold (Mr. SNA Personality, Poetry writing, Discuss throw and Javelin throw). But the organization of the competition was really bad,.. When we arrived we were told to stay at a hostel that was still under construction, beds with no mattresses and no outlet for charging... The competition ended up being delayed with over four hours, got the same food every day, and the food even ran out if one came to late. The sound system didn't work, they didn't clarify the rules, and changed the rules in between...
Kind of appreciated out own college after the visit..
But Bangalore is a nice city, and we had a really fun time together:) Such a carrying and happy group of students who know how take care of one another and respect each other! But then again, we're all nurses..;)
