Med School Banter

I’ve been MIA for the past few weeks and I deeply apologize. I just entered med school proper and your girl is trying really hard to settle down to this new lifestyle because it is quite exhausting truth be told.

I really just want to share things I’ve learnt from med school in the last one month. It has been different really from any other academic experience I’ve had. I’ve learnt to work hard, I mean like really hard in ways I’ve never thought I could before. Respecting people’s paces is another thing I’ve learned to live by. Some are fast and some are slow and you have to identify yours and respect others.

Planning! I have never been a planner in all honesty but I have learnt to become one because I needed a structure to fit my very large workload into my so little time. A med student that tells you that he or she has enough time is probably a genius or does not have any other engagements outside medicine lol.

Respect that 50 pass mark! Have you met one of those kids in secondary school that think the 50% pass mark is too low and is easily attainable? I was one of those kids. But these days I find myself praying for that 50, not that I can’t score more in some cases but I recognize the fact that I can score 50 or less sef.

Also genuinely make conscious efforts to make yourself happy. Have a good support system and take care of your mental health. Depression is not as trivial as you might think and a good support system is really needed. My family and friends have been my support system for the few weeks I’ve spent here and a whole lot of food to be honest.

I look weird I know!!!

Most importantly, I’m discovering myself more and figuring things out; that’s the whole point of this journey (and to become a doctor definitely lol).

P.s if you know a medical student please send them money all the time, thanks in advance.

Till next time, sending you all the love – TTA

My name is Toyosi Adeniran (actually “Adeniran Ifeoluwatoyosi Abigail” which is quite long lol ) and just call me “TheToyosiAdeniran” because I feel like the ‘the’ gives it this catch and makes it seem like it’s just one name. You know the way some people say they are something by day and another thing by night, well I am a medical student everyday (both day and night). I am also an aspiring public speaker and very passionate about people knowing their rights and having those rights protected. And above all, I am a Christian and my faith is very important to me.
