The Unbearable Joy of Being Free

Guess who?

A/an (Microsoft ClipArt) image of (what Bill Gates thinks is) a doctor, of course!

The good news is that ALL of my exams are over and I am free to do as I like until my results are announced, and that will not happen for at least six weeks.

The bad news is that there is no bad news. For me, that is. In your case, you might have to read a lot more stuff from me, since I have all this time on my hands.

My Mom and I are planning to go around the world (read '500 km max'), which means that lucky, lucky you will get to read about my Indian Railway Adventures, AKA How to Pee While Holding Your Nose With One Hand and Keeping the Door Shut With the Other. Then again, being us, making plans and actually executing them are light years apart, so all you might have to put up with may be thrilling tales of How My Mom Resisted Temptation at the Supermarket.


Wait a minute.

I did not give a blow-by-blow account of Ze Exams, did I?

The theory papers were all pretty shitty. Just thinking about the Surgery one makes me want to go cower in a dark corner.


The practical exams were all right. Except for the Paediatrics one, which was great.

So yeah. I am done. Five years of medical education has given me an appreciation for free time like nothing else on earth could have. I am off to enjoy it.

Yaaaaaaayyyyy for you!! enjoy the freedom now, while you can, before you start the round of post-grad studies - which I'm assuming many medicos do next.

And hope you pass with good grades.

somebody else,
Next up, internship, during whivh I'll need to start prepping for the post grad entrance.

Exactly what I'm doing! Freedom feels great!
And thank you. :)

Thank you. The earth is millions of years old, being a few days off shouldn't matter!

Thank you. I'm having fun doing nothing. I'd forgotten what that was like!

jeya anand,
Yeah. Thank you. :)

tys on ice,
You have me mixed up with someone else. I get a cool licence to... Heal. :D

post script,
Ah, The Park. I'm immeasurably glad I'm done with that monstrosity.

6 weeks was a guess. It's going to be much earlier? Aa-aa-aa-aa why didn't anyone tell me?

If I do, I shall be prepared to meet them. :)
