A Student's Diary

122 Comments

Dentistry Proper is different from the past Pre-Dental years. My life was easy peasy before. I have a very nice schedule which permits me to have some YOLO with my classmates. I still have time to stalk my crushes from different departments, roam around the campus with my friends, skip classes and pass the exams with just having some stock knowledge. One of the things that I'm really thankful for is that amidst all of those happy-go-lucky moments I still did well during my PD days, that I experienced to be on the dean's list for 3 semesters.


It's very different now. Everything turned the other way round. It was a culture shock. It's been six weeks already since I entered Dentistry proper and all I can say is "Whoa". The past weeks had been an adjusting period. It felt like I've been thru a lot already although I know it isn't half of the semester yet. It has been tough. The schedule was crazy tiring. Almost all nights are sleepless nights that even my coffee needs a coffee. There were many drawings, carvings, pre-during-post exams. It's my first time also to experience failing in a major exam that I reviewed for two days. It's really disappointing but on the bright side, I'm not the only one who failed nor we were few but we all failed. No one passed that exam and it was really crazy. 


Dent Proper made me realize that if you think you've done your best and you failed, no, it isn't still your best. If you think you've exerted an effort already but you still failed, try exerting a double, triple effort. Be motivated, determined and focused. Study hard but pray harder and everything else will follow. 

 Spread positivity and good vibes! :)

  2. Even though dentistry is challenging, I'm sure you'll manage and, in the future, you'll forget about the hardships and just remember the great things you learned through it! :D
