The right kind of pride
I think that the less I write, the dumber I become. I won’t recycle the overused excuse of academics: I’ll just try my best to write. I think that today was a milestone for me because it marked the most recent exam where I simply just tried my absolute best to prepare for. Although it didn’t even have any bearing academically, I simply wanted to prove to myself that I was good at the subjects and the things I wished to be good at: I think I did very well in our exam today in Biochemistry.
It has been a while since I’ve slept late just to prepare for the exams. Oftentimes, I would read through a subject matter once or twice, and then sleep early without minding the results the following day. As long as I passed, I really didn’t mind what my results were. In medicine, I seek to pass: my ultimate goal is to become a doctor. I’m not even thinking about specialization for the time being. I just want an M.D. attached to my name, as well as to prove to my father that I had done his will.
But I’m glad that when I’m focused and passionate, I usually excel at the things I love. Although I may have had as much as 20 or so mistakes from that examination, I have a good feeling that I would be among the top of our class. And that’s enough for me.
Have you guys any of these issues? I just wanted to get this out there, because at least I’m writing something.
