Because I was told to

11 August 2009

Blog, I mean.

While on the phone with a very good friend some time last week, I was told to blog more often. To be perfectly honest, I have not been blogging nor reading others’ blogs much in the last 2 years. There is a multitude of excuses I can offer, but that would be a waste of time, and honestly, I don’t need to, right? After the said phone call, I sat and had a good think. A part of me truly miss the times when I could sit in front of the computer and type away and I remember enjoying that a lot. I also liked surfing my friends’ blogs and finding out how they were getting on… somehow, that all took second place when real life got busier and I just never came back.

Now… updates…

Work had started a week ago. I am feeling a lot more confident than I was a week ago, but still very very far away from being truly comfortable in my new role. Life as a junior doctor is harder work than being a student, but it would be unfair for me to whine because I don’t work half as much as my colleagues in Malaysia. To be honest, there is a part of me that is enjoying work life. As a medical student, there was a lot of waiting around and feeling like you’re in the way. Having a role and feeling remotely useful is very refreshing and I do like it.

Having said that, things may change by this time tomorrow. I go on nights today and yes, I am scared. :P

This is my new friend, we have a love hate relationship. I love it when it’s silent.

    :-) So happy that you are back… Hope the nights will give you a resting peace than the bustle of the day. And your new friend… I know you will be inseparable :-P

    Thanks, Reuben. I’m afraid nights might be crazier because there would be fewer people working.. in fact, by the end of my shift, I might be tempted to throw my new found friend out of the window of a very tall building.

    Hahaha…..I wanted to become a Doctor myself. It is really tough being a Doctor but I’m sure very rewarding too.
