Life Of A Medical Student – Summer Semester 2019 – Weak 6

“Life is essentially an endless series of problems. The solution to one problem is merely the creation of another.” ― Mark Manson, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life

Saturday                                 20th July 2019 


It doesn’t matter what  you have been planning , what schedule  you  have been following or what checklist you have  been trying to stick to everyday . You can’t trust life , Not your circumstances either . Things happen , Plans get messed up , Goals change , dreams get broken and schedules can be rewritten .

All my plans , goals and dreams got changed in one second . My family is going through a huge crisis , I won’t go through specific details , but yeah , a big trouble , all because of a  person who we trusted so much , but turned out to be an asshole .

I won’t be able to register for the next semester in Med school , I will be taking a gap year between my basic and Clinical years . A huge step , not anyone would go through , but my circumstances in addition to my mental health left me with no choice in this matter . I’m not sure I’m ready for the change ,I mean  , I was so excited to finish the basic phase and move to the hospital life , But Alas . My graduation will be in 2023 instead of 2022 , a year which could make a lot of difference .

I’ve been thinking a lot , and there are many plans in my mind I could go through , But all of them will be put in second place after Working , my translation work will be full time (8  hours a day ) , and I’m currently searching for a day job . I have to support my family and my studies .

Yeah , everything changed but that’s life , we have to accept and try to move on , we can’t stay in our place just cursing and wishing things would be different .

That’s the difference between success and failure , No matter what struggles Successful people have faced , they don’t give up , they try to make the best of the new situation .

I’ve full belief in Allah and his mercy and fairness , If God chose me to go in this way , there are purposes . I just always pray to have strength enough to endure , develop and go on .

I don’t have more words , but next episodes will be better , full of happy news , Inshallah.

Don’t just sit there. Do something. The answers will follow.”

With love ,

Lana ❤

  1. I hope things will get better for you, I also had to extend my uni years due to a family crisis so I can relate to what you’re going through, may Allah help you and you’r family
