striking a chord

Bismillah

Had a good TED moment with this piece.

There is a void, in the symphony of life, when you are silent.
You matter.

sssl

Bismillah.

We had a session yesterday, on Safe Surgery, Saves Lives. Good thing too, in that everyone (I assume, all of us managed to stay awake! Ha!) now has a general idea as to why, it is so important to have an effective communication in carrying out a procedure in the operating theater.

There was a session at the end, where we were given scenarios, to act out, by applying what was learnt during the program, and it kinda humbled me how my boss, voluntarily took up the role of a scrub nurse, as many of us were reluctant to do so (the act of instrument counts is challenging to those with zero exposure to the operating room environment). And because of that, I think I might have developed the courage to give my best shot at acting. When your boss is giving her all to master the art of swab and instrument counting, you too, have that desire to not disappoint the group, and give your best stage of being an imported neurosurgeon from India (no relation whatsoever to the living, dead and undead).

I am glad a lot of us had a good laugh. Even if I did went out of my way to do it (my character in the role play is much more famous than my real identity as of now). Tomorrow is Monday, which means, back to business. And training to become the calmest, smartest, coolest anesthesiology officer in the operating complex. (inshaAllah)

So back to smarting myself up now.
Or maybe catch up on that sleep. Hee.

Love,

that is who i am

Bismillah

Some friends said it is because I am too smart.
And I dare not say it is the truth, nor can I deny a part of it.

Apparently, it is the reason why finding a partner is so hard, especially when the people I mix with is of my own kind. Time is ticking, and it kinda irks me a little, but I guess, it is better to wait till I find someone whom could appreciate what I am. And encourage and support me, likewise I, him.

Dearest future companion, I hope you are well and I hope you are striving to be better everyday. I try too, as well. And I do so, because I need to be accountable to my patients, and I need to be a good doctor. I have made a pledge to serve God by serving humanity, in this field I have chosen. I cannot imagine the emptiness, of leaving this service.

Lets reach our goals, and along the way if we meet up, then lets reach them together.

le petit prince

Bismillah

A lot of us, were drawn to the book, and the wonders it brought us. (But of course, books of imagination tend to frustrate those without).

Finally got a weekend to watch the movie. And it was a lovely trip. It made me realised how I was taking things for granted. How I have forced myself to fit in, that I forgot how to be me. And how life is dull and uninteresting, only because I was too lazy to self actualise and recall who I was.

It is too early to say that I have found peace in my pieces of wrecked plans and runaway dreams, but I guess the goals now deserve a makeover, a neneknora-ish one.

Nah, belanja-ing a karaoke session. Cause I just found a way to clear my throat. Rrrrrrr

Because it is easier, when you begin with the end in mind.

you need to be better

Bismillah

When someone is sent to you, to show you how to be merciful, then thank God you have been met in this world.

Because that way, you get to see how the world brightens up a little when they are around, and how your heart becomes lighter, at the thoughts of being assigned to work with them. And you directly visualised, how the workplace, can, indeed, be a better place!

Not many can be so passionate and calm at the same time. I hope I too, would develop those soon. Heres to embracing a new adventure,

Alhamdulillah
Bismillah

Love,
Nora
