Disclaimer: Don’t take my advice.

If I had to summarise quarantine till now, it would be me trying out a bunch of new things only to find out I’m not good at anything. Yesterday, in a feeble attempt to educate myself in some things financial/economic, I set out to find a podcast about money. This might be my last few…

Doctor Who?

That would be us, we’re doctors now! A while ago, our compulsory rotation ended, and life has been nothing short of a tumult of mingled emotions. Does that qualify as an excuse for being an absentee blogger? I hope it does. There is absolutely nothing that can prepare you for internship. Its funny how we’re…

The Big D

(Decision) A few months ago: Person:“ Watson, what specialty are you interested in “ Me: “Not sure, but I most certainly know what I don’t want to pursue-Surgery” A month ago:  Person:“ Watson, do you know what specialty you want to pursue“ Me: “I haven’t decided yet “ After successfully getting through 4 medicine OPD’s,…

Faith it till you make it

College is where you find out who you really are they say, the time when you experiment, when you discover new things about others, about yourself. I wish I wasn’t a stereotype, but alas. There are so many things I’ve learnt about myself but there is one thing I’d like to address in this post….

Dear Potions Master

Just like the boy who lived, I was terrible at balancing an equation and titrating acids and bases and everything that came in between, until I met you. I didn’t get why the electrons occupied a certain orbit or why mercury was the only metal, liquid at room temperature. You see, chemistry was never my…

Pen Harry met Paper

We left the store hours later, Our purses a little lighter our bags a little heavier Walking back with a childlike glee A lot of zeal we foresee In green and red and blue they come To break the black and white humdrum (of the textbooks) If you were to walk by our spot in…

Maybe you should see a “real” doctor

It’s been raining for a few weeks now, the trees look green, its gloomy outside, the air is moist with the smell of petrichor. Perfect weather for a cup of coffee and inspiration for a blog post eh? But apart from voices in my head coaxing me to slumber, my mind is blank. Writers block…

The wind, the grass and the holy book

What helps us study #1 The clock is ticking, 50 pages to study, 100 things to talk about One topic down, a couple strolls by Sitting outside has its perks, we know who’s dating, who’s hating, what’s cooking and who’s stalking(us obviously) Another topic down and an ant crawls up D’s hand, she shrieks, the…

We have a problem!

(It’s called Math) I can be pretty damn indecisive and I don’t know how many people can relate but more times than less, even though I don’t know what I want, I most definitely know what I DONT. And I might have not known what I wanted to pursue until the end of summer in…

Immortal remains

I am coming back home after attending my cousin’s funeral, a young and healthy boy of 21. It was a sombre occasion like you wouldn’t imagine. My aunt was a wreck and no words came to me that could offer her any comfort. There’s nothing to say, is there? I cried with her and came…
