Tiring day. And am catching a cold. :-( Another 7 days to go.

Happy Valentine's Day! One is never too old for romance, :-D as one of the patients on the ward tells me.
Little blessings that I thank God for:
- The fact that the machine that validates the bus tickets is spoilt so I got to sit on the bus for free this morning.
- Everyone was stable and there were no emergencies.
- That everyone in my work environment is lovely and helpful and kind.
- That God never ceases to remind me about His providence in all aspects of my life.

Also, something I was mulling over today when I went to see the patients in my unit:
I remember how as a patient, I was irritated when I only saw the doctors once in the day. How I felt neglected and uncared for. And it is this experience that I try to remind myself of when I go about my day at work. To remind myself to try wearing my patients' shoes. To try to do what I can for their best interests. It is astonishingly easy to get lost in the paperwork. But the patients' care lies at the heart of the healing profession. And this is not found solely in all the referrals or discharge summaries in the world. But to have compassion and sincerely desiring to know them better.

So Valentine's Day is in approximately 45 minutes. Was thinking about the notion of a day dedicated to love and romance. And you know, although many people have questioned the reason for just a day (out of 365 days in a year) dedicated to cherishing loved ones, I also cannot help but wonder if it's precisely that reason that it becomes special. Not to say that one should go about the ignoring said loved ones for the rest of the year, but to just take that special effort to let that someone know that they are loved.
It's incredible how in a world of almost 7 billion people, so many are still lonely.
Also just a shout out to my family and close friends: I love you all very much and there'll be someone who's thinking of you come 14 February 2012.

I'm so tired I can't sleep. Sigh.
So today I was asked to identify an accessory nipple, which I did and the consultant assumed I was from Melbourne University. Should I feel happy or insulted? LOL.

Something I found interesting today:
Was on the bus to work and sat behind one of the local ladies. Who happened to be watching KPop music videos on her iPhone. So I got to watch snippets of B2st's Soom, DBSK's Before You Go dance version and 2NE1's Ugly before she got off. LOL. Not a bad way to spend the bus trip if I must say so myself.

A face in the crowd...

For all that we struggle against conforming and strive for individuality and announce our uniqueness to the world, we are but faces in the crowd. In the crowd of so many, you are one mass of pixelated colour immortalised in a picture that captures the moments representing slices of life. A smile. A jump. That fleeting joy. A face that is caught up in nostalgia. Despite being a face out of so many, that picture evokes emotions powerful and memories deep. It isn't so bad, to be a face in the crowd.
Nov 16 2011 - The day Monash Medicine Class of 2011 snapped a pearl for memory's golden casket. On the cusp of conquering the world of adulthood and responsibilities. This is one for keeps. :D

Happy Birthday, Fi!

On the off chance that you still read my blog, happy 26th birthday!
Celebrate it with loved ones to create wonderful, beautiful memories to treasure. :P
I thank God that He made you my sister - funny, sarcastic, blunt you.
A protector, even if you do not think of yourself that way.
A friend, whom I've fought and made up with so many times, sometimes over issues so trivial they are quickly forgotten.
A confidante, with whom I can be myself.
So dear sis, have a happy birthday!
