I think I attend possibly the ONLY university in the world which would use a medical case study on an exam that included a family which consisted of two married women and their nine year old son. It was a simple case where one of the mother’s was suffering from a disease and we, as their “medical team”, were too debate whether or not medical intervention or non-pharmacological intervention was the best choice in the scenario.

It’s something simple and very minuscule that represents the values of this nation and the values of the people that live in it. Everyone can have a family, everyone has the right to seek medical care, and everyone has the right to live.

I don’t give a rat’s ass what YOU believe, or what I believe. That is a universal law; no one should be denied the dignity of being a human being - that dignity which is sacred and not for mortals to meddle in.


"If You’re Going Through Hell, Keep Going"

I keep reminding myself that there are people out there, who are making their dreams come true. They are striving, they are struggling, they are fighting for their lives - and they are making their dreams a reality.

Insha’allah. I want to be like them too.

Oh dear God. I’m such a loser.
I’m like a 16 year old girl who just got dumped by her boyfriend (but this is worse, I got dumped by my final... how does that even happen?!?)

Literally, I’ve been sitting her watching streamed television for 5 hours with my jumbo pack of skittles. They’re starting to cut my mouth but I keep eating them….

I’m having a really bad day. Alhumdulilah I really shouldn’t be complaining, but urghhhhh.

Body Image.

I’ve gotten really good at many things; many habits I wanted to let go of I’ve let go of and I’m a lot happier. But there’s one thing that I can’t get rid of, and it didn’t bother me as much before but it’s starting to erk me quite a bit.

I actually forget to eat.

People laugh when they hear this but I’m not joking. My stomach will roar like a whole menagerie of animals, but I’m so used to ignoring it for whatever reason. I’ve become tolerant and accustom to the pangs of hunger in my stomach.

And I don’t know how to stop. It’s starting to bother me now cause I kinda would like to be a bit bigger physically. I don’t mean to say I don’t like myself now. I’m actually quite confident in my body and my looks (something which took A LONG LONG time), but for myself, personally, I would like be physically stronger. And this whole, not eating thing, is really not working….

The next 20 days….
Ya Rabb, please help me. xD

All the random names are names of my professors. I find it easier to study by dividing the material by professor whenever I can (I usually have at least 2-3 profs per class). That way, I know what to expect it terms of lecture style.
