Words of wisdom
My parents are off to the village for a visit, and my bhabi is taking the kids off to a wedding. It’ll just be me and my two older brothers in the house till Sunday. A whole pile of food has been stored away in the fridge for us by the good women of the house. We’re expected to keep the place reasonably clean, although the ladies smirked when saying that, as if the notion was ludicrous.
Its early morning here in Islamabad. Another day has just started and my USMLE prep is not going according to track at all.
I’ve written much on the topic of studying. When all this studying is finally over, and I stop making such big demands from my brain, then hopefully, this daily self-bashing will stop and I’ll begin to feel better about myself. Till then, the whip will always be cracking and I will almost never be totally satisfied with the day’s work.
A friend of mine, who got a 99 in his Step 1, once told me never
to wait for the day when I’d actually feel
like studying. That day will never come
, he said emphatically. Another friend of mine, who got a double 99, once said that if you’re studying and you’re always enjoying it, then you’re not really studying. I’ll take these words of wisdom with me today and try to get my 30 pages done.
