Internship ends in less than four months!

Sometimes when I walk down the halls of PGH (or in most cases half run/brisk walk), I almost find it unbelievable that internship ends in less than four months. I am swept by a feeling of premature nostalgia for the many times I got lost inside its maze of corridors, how certain parts of it generate a distinctive 'aroma', how its hallways are so wide cars could literally fit in, and how people always walked with a purposeful cadence. Eight months was a blitz of a time.

And for the next eight months, my life would practically revolve around another marker post of being a doctor here in the Philippines-- the board exams. Truth be told, I am not fazed. I am happy that I am finally at this point. Because for all my sleepless nights, bouts of depression and mugs of caffeine paired with existential ruminations of why I am in med school, I will finally take an exam that is a supposed to be a culmination of my medical education. I do not say 'being a doctor' because obviously there is more to being a doctor than this test.

HUwaaaaaaaaaat?!?! You're in PGH!?!?! Huhu Di ko kayo nakikita @_@ (Perhaps we have seen each other in one of those corridors haha) Patapos na internship niyo... Godbless po and as always THANK YOU SO MUCH! Utang na loob ko sa inyo yung pagpasa ko sa NMAT haha. And now I'm an LU6 (clerk) student in UP-PGH :) Hope I could at least see you and say thank you personally though.
