"In the year 2007, it was my first time playing Ultimate Frisbee"
Well, that's what I said during the dinner for Malaysian Medics. We were given coins and we had to introduce ourselves by saying about something that happened to us on the year of minting.
Meeting new people can be fun and I'm sure that there'll be many more introductions that I'd face in life. Now, we move on to the part where I recall a conversation that I have on YM once upon a time...
???: Nothing remains lama-lama
Wafi: True, but that doesn't mean you have to let it go
And then he replied with some lines from a Westlife song, "If I let you go... I would never know..."
You were not even responding to my message.
Saying hellos to new people can be quite freaky cause you're letting in new people into your life and it's as if you're leaving those that you have in the past. But hey, nobody said it was easy and it doesn't really mean you're letting go.
Okay, enough about that. Let's say hello to my Medicine course in the University of Nottingham.
Basically, it's systems-based integrated which is so cool! Cause it's very structured and it consists of:
Some lectures require the usage of keypads (like the ones used during the Ask the Audience lifeline in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?) Frankly, whenever the keypads are used, it's impossible for me to fall asleep, haha. And I had to tell Zuhri twice about the keypads before he understands what I was trying to say which makes me wonder whether he really has a good memory or he wasn't actually paying attention to my messages. Thankfully, Syuk got excited as soon as I talked about the keypads and hopes that he could join one of the lectures. I did tell Muz and Hanis Hanafi too but they're in the UK so, their unis also use keypads. No biggie there.
This is fun cause we work in small groups and this is where we get to know more about our colleagues.
I like my GP visit! Cause it's in the city and both of my GPs are very nice :D Just can't wait to go there again and hospital visits are coming up soon.
This is where we would be kissing manikins, screaming for help, lying on the floor or wrapping each other in bandages. One of the practicals would be the Clinical Communication Skills which I really enjoy cause it involves acting or role-playing. There was one time where we were recorded on DVD and I felt a bit awkward watching myself in that video. I think I need to take extra classes for acting :P
Well, there are lots more but I think I should stop there. Essentially, there are 4 themes that make up the medical course:
Theme A: The Cell

Theme B: The Person
Theme C: The Community
Theme D: The Doctor
That's it for now and remember, saying hello to new people doesn't really mean bye bye to others. But I'd say bye anyway cause it's more heartbraking, hehe.
Till then, salam...
