Long Time No Blog

Haven't written on the blog for a long time since I really did not have much to put out. With college over, drag PSM postings- that we don't even have to go to most of the time, and dredgeries of trying to study for the USMLE, my life's been more of a series of merely surfing the net and sleeping.
Still, all these days have not gone wasted. I got a lot of paperwork done from the college and teachers. Heck! It really sweats you out going time and again for the same kinda stuff over n over again. (And its more of mental exhaustion, where I get an excuse to not study, and sleep away :P)
Then again, another thing I did was, finish watching Grey's anatomy (Season-5) -thanks to Shilpi for unintentionally sending me the online link to the show- I went on to waste almost one precious week waiting for the episodes to buffer and watching them, back to back!! I can really get addicted to a thing, and then its impossible to let go of it till I finish it off (... mind you, it has NEVER been this way for studies!!-its really amazing how my mind can siphon out only those things that are bound to waste time and make me feel guily later on!) But, now that I'm done with the show, I'm a happy person. No more Grey's anatomy as-a-distraction for me :D

Then the last two days have been heavy on the immunity. Had acute urticaria the other day, followed by a bout of rhinitis (..or 'rihintz' for some ;) ) with the eyes and nose running a constant drip. Feeling a lot better health wise now.

Although a mar has been put on the feel-good by the sudden realisation of how little I've studied in the past 10days!! :(
My has been a slow and shoddy affair till now! With just about 3months left to the exam, I still haven't done my first read! Was supposed to finish it by 15th June (ie today!!!), and still have massive amounts of course left!!
Just got a bit serious towards studies 2 days back. Have been doing Physio (one of my least fav subjects!), and realised that they've actually taught zilch at college in the general phys area of the subject. (It might be coz of my sucky memory, but I have a feeling that whatever I studied these days in general physio, sounded completely new!!)
CVS was on shaky lands.
Respi...ermm.. although haven't done it yet, I sure that what I have left of from my first yr knowledge, there'll be massive gaps to fill in there too!
Acid-base give me the shudders!
Only endocrinolgy seems to be good enough with the first yr stuff!
Its a good thing I got around to finally doing the subject, rather than leaving it out of the curriculum.
As for the other subs: If Physio doesn't do it, Biochem is definitely gonna kill me.
Anatomy and BS, not sure how much I know of it, till I do some Qbanks.
Micro...need revision revision..!!
Path..not too shaky, just need to adjust the loose ends a bit.

Hah! Forgot Pharma there.. Goes to show how much I've studied the damn subject! X(

Anyway, my rants about the prep end here. And, I finally got a new post on the blog (however uninteresting it might be!)

PS: Please pray for me!! Pray that I study!


  1. Grey's Anatomy IS addictive. I mean, I think, one is 'Normal' if one gets addicted to it. ;)
    And those who don't...definitely need some medical supervision! ;)

  2. Physio's one subject (no, actually, I've loads of others in the same category :( !) that I never loved to read. Mainly coz of... (erm...I have stupid reasons...) Guyton n Hall . It was our first SUCH-A-BIG-BOOk. And I always ran away from it.

    All strength to you... (for these long-forgotten-subjects)
    And A Get well Soon !! :)

  3. I hate Pharm! Exam is tomorrow and I STILL haven't gotten through all of it. Thanks for stopping by my blog. When are you taking it?

  4. Whats the name of your college arps . . . I must admit i was a bit surprised though not shocked to find that someone actually blogged in med college cause all that ppl do out here is study and sleep - med hasnt exactly been as interesting as i thought it would be ! So you re an intern now ? Do reply , ta ta

  5. @TJ: Thanks for the wishes :) and the prayers! Ahhh....Guyton was good.. wish I'd read more of it!
    But thatnks to the awesome teachers at our college, I don't even know the minor basics!! First yr at our college is amazingly bad..

    @Lindsay: yep! Pharm is bad!... but I figure Biochem's even worse! Luck to you!

    @Gupta: Am at Dr. S. N. Medical College, Jodhpur. Yes, I was surprised too, to find such a lot of Indian Med bolggers, but apparently there are a lot. Check out my reading list for some. Although, I still feel that studying and sleeping do take up amajor chunk of med life-but still med's fun!and believe you me, clinical subjects are much more fun! doing my internship...tho here its more like not-doing... don't have to go much.. So major fun!

  6. Well postings for us started last year and other than medicine i dint get to learn much, how much ever i tried. . . Everyone laughs when i tell them im in 2nd year . . They sort of ask me to buzz off ! Its really discouraging u know. . . Did you write AIPMT or did you get in through raj pmt ?were u in allen , kota by any chance ? . . . Ta ta !

  7. @abhishek: well that's what is the dictum here! however much you try to learn in the 2nd yr, you're snubbed off by the ever-busy resident.
    and amazingly its the same resident who laughs at you the next year, when you don't know the types of murmurs and what they're supposed to sound like!
    I got in through AIPMT, and no, I was not enrolled at Allen (had joined the test series, though)

  8. Hey ok . . I was all india too . :) many of my friends here from jodhpur 2 . , they studied in a certain st anne s school there. . . . . . . changing tracks let me know what you think of ragging. Were u ragged . ! And methinks it was gud I was !
