big boss

In dental faculty, we students have a close relationship with lecturers including The Dean. Yes, the big boss. He involves in almost everything and he definitely knows what's going on amongst us.

So, few weeks ago, my group had a PBL(program based learning) sessions with him. After 2 hours of brainstorming on what are the ideal properties of a denture yada yada yada*yawn*, we came out with some good questions for him.

me : Prof, could we get extra study leave this sem? Since you know, we have 2 professional exams and 2 weeks is definitely not enough. Just look at what happened to our result last sem.

The rest couldn't agree more and we were putting on the boldest face we could assume just like puss in boots in Shrek the movie.

the dean : Oh you need more? That means you'll have shorter holiday. Are you okay with that?

us : Yeah we're fineee with that. *with our big round eyes*

the dean : But you do know that you will not be having 4 months break like other faculties, don't you?

us : What??? We thought it's standardized! No exception right? Mana boleh macam ni prof *looking each other with opened mouth *

the dean : yeah but what would you do in that 4 months?

us : Rest la prof. We need rest. Oh we sooo need that. Or work. Yes work to earn some money. Or go on a vacation. See, we can do lots of things.

the dean : Rest? You don't need 4 months to rest. You'll lose your touch by then. Work? You guys can work in the clinic. A lot of work waiting for you in clinical years. You're hired automatically. Your new semester starts July like usual.

and the rest of us left with this expression -.-

Yeah, he's the big boss. *bows to the great*

even if it's too bright to sleep

You know that you're enjoying your holiday when you sleep with your eye mask because it's too bright to be sleeping in the afternoon.

Yes it's true when people say you often write when you're in the midst of doing something, not when you're free. Because that would be the time when many thoughts linger in your mind and you have no one to talk to but this screen. That's when you type and type and type without even pausing.

Can't believe that I have another 3 years to go. Time flies so fast and I didn't realize that my brain cells have absorbed nothing but dentistry for the past 2 years. Many things learnt throughout the journey. Not just academic stuff but also about life. How I see things and handle them.

Studying about teeth and health related is the last thing I would tell a person whom I just met because the moment I tell them I'm a dental student, they will keep shut. Afraid that I might look into their mouth and comment on their teeth, I guess. Though it's a bad habit, but I tend to look at their teeth while they're talking. Hahaha. Bad bad habit.

I'm lucky to have my loved ones and friends who pull my back when I feel like I'm gonna lose myself out there. It's good to see them and talk about something else, something random and I can be myself.

But I hate it when they say they're graduating soon and even invite me to their graduation day! grrr. Dude, I have another 3 freaking years and god knows who will show up when my time comes coz they might be at home babysit their kids. hahahaha.

Study mode strikes, hence no picture.

prostho no no

I'm in my unmanageable state for the past 4 weeks. Currently, we're at prosthodontic module. Denture or gigi palsu lah senang cerita. To tell you the truth, this module is not meant for me. Me and denture can't work together.

I'm used to working hours. Well, not that 8am-5pm but 8am-7pm! Stayed in the lab to complete the denture process. I'm half dead by the time I reached home and confused to choose between sleep and study. Sleep wins most of the time. I mean, all the time. Hehehe.

This week is the study week for our mid semester exam for both endo and prostho module followed by exam next week and one week of holiday on the week after. Finally!

Just the right time to get back on track.
