Winter is coming

Yeah, I wish.

I wish winter was coming, but then I live in a tropical city. Here it either pours from the sky or the humidity makes my sweat glands pour. Its one or the other. What I meant was a med students’ winter and the gruelling days leading upto it…colder than the chilliest of the winters…. Finals. Is. Coming ( are coming ) 

Finals are coming and you know what? I can’t believe I’m saying this, but we’re doing okay, for now at least. Maybe this is my calm before the storm or maybe just maybe there’s no storm this time (yeah right). Part of my calm might arise from me anticipating the huge tide thats coming for me. Maybe I’m finally getting a hang of these exams huh?

The month leading to the exam I expect to be gaining a true understanding of all the important concepts but lets get real guys, its going to be a month of mnemonics, repetition, force memorisation, quizzing and getting quizzed by classmates, if you’re lucky, practice papers and last but not the least realising that recalling what you’ve studied is way different from recognising it and saying -“ah I remember reading that.” But that’s something I realise when I read the question in the exam hall.

Nevertheless, exam are near and like (Not really) Watson jokingly says to me every time I snap at her “Lets not turn on each other in these difficult times”, this is a reminder to take a moment to catch a breath. Because we’re all capable of many successes – small and big and every hour spent studying is a tiny success. Plan ahead, take breaks, eat chocolate. Coffee is your best friend and just for a while, your bed is not. 

I’ve never felt more like the person in the meme below.


Exams are coming? Stick em’ with the pointy end.
