Sting's Digest 101

Now that the madness is over (temporarily, very temporarily in fact) and mediocrity reigns as usual (insert long drawn out sigh here), i shall fulfill my promise and answer those questions (mostly because i'm too strung out to sleep and that idiot Time warner guy disconnected my free cable plus i need to take my mind off things)

Question: What area of Medicine do you hope to specialise in?
 To be honest, i have no clue what i want to specialize in. My main aim right now is to pass all my classes which is not such a breeze. I am interested in Oncology, Hematology, Peds and lately Surgery, but i really don't know where i will end up.

Questions - why don't you sometimes handle criticism well? Like ur blog though.
This question is based on an assumption that i don't handle criticism well (at least sometimes). LOL. I don't think anyone handles criticism well all the time. I get irritated easily and if it's not constructive criticism from someone i respect then the chances i will entertain it are slim. Believe it or not, i don't get criticized regularly in real life and when i do it's about the same thing and i know whoever is talking means well, so i shut up and plan to do better.

Question: what would you rather be doing with your life right now?
I love this question!!! Someone recently asked me sometime along those lines. If it were up to be, i would be done with med school and residency and be practicing. I would have a husband (or not husband. I don't necessarily have a strong desire to be married at this time) who adores me and a daughter that looks just like me and a non-yappy toy dog breed. The worst thing about my life right now is that i'm a student and i have to study so much (kind of in isolation) and i really don't have a life. I want to live and have fun with the people who love me and the people that i love.

Question - If you had to do life all over again, what one thing would you want to change most?
I would have had more fun in undergrad instead of being so focused on getting good grades and building up my resume to get into med school. I would definitely take the time to make friends, hang out, party and travel.

Question: do you indeed to relocate back to 9ja after your studies and practice?
That's not likely to happen anytime soon. 99% of my immediate family is here so i really have no incentive to go back to Nigeria to practice. However, i would love to take part in medical mission trips to Nigeria, so hopefully i can do that when the time comes.

Question: how do you handle criticism?
It really depends on who is doing the criticizing, what is been criticized and what side of the bed i woke up on :)

Question: Do you regret the whole medical school ish? ever wish you went for something not complicated at all?
Absolutely not! Being in medical school is a dream come true. I have wanted to be a doctor since i was 6 years old and i have never once changed my mind. This has been the toughest thing i have ever had to do, from undergrad, to applying, to actually getting in and staying in, it has been difficult and mentally challenging but there is nothing else i would rather be doing. This journey which is still in progress, has shown me the kind of stuff i am made of. I am a warrior. I never give up. I will fight for what i want. I'm still fighting.

question: what's your worst fear?
 Failure. I have recurring dreams about it. Now that i have actually experienced it, it's not so bad. The key is to pick yourself up (scrap yourself off the floor if you have to) and don't give up. You haven't failed unless you give up on something you really want.

Question: Can I ask you 3 questions? How would you like cupid to hit you? Why don't you want love in your life now?
You only asked 2 questions but i forgive you. I wouldn't like cupid to hit me. Love is a distraction. If it's mutual and the other party is constantly behaving himself, then it's a good thing, but that's usually not the case and i don't have the power for it. I don't handle stuff like that very well and it takes my focus away from school, which is never a good thing. It's really all about finding a balance and i'm not there yet. Maybe i need to practice finding a balance but not right now.

Have you ever been in love? Whats your best cheesecake?
Hmmm.. Yes, i've been in love (i think).  There's only one guy i can think of that i have really been in love with. My first boyfriend and it was pure unadulterated puppy love. 
I shrieked in excitement when i saw the cheesecake questions. Ohhh....i loveeee cheesecake. My best cheesecake so far is the dulche de leche cheesecake from cheesecake factory. Thankfully my birthday is coming up so i get to indulge.

My question now is; What do you think about being very good blogfriends with me?

Question - whats your deal breaker in a relationship?
Lies!!! Just tell me the truth no matter how difficult. I appreciate honestly. If i can't trust you, what's the point of the relationship. I don't have time to be suspicious and playing detective up and down. Abeg. 

Things you said about my personality/me that was 100% spot on
  • Looks like a child (NIL)- I have my days. No one ever guesses my age right. Ever!
  • Can be quite talkative but sometimes quiet, depending on the topic, surrounding and mood (Beautiful) - I'm talkative with people i know and comfortable with but very quiet "outside" (School, work etc)
  • Can be deceptively quiet. talkative when you're in ur natural habitat (Toinlicious) - I couldn't have said it better if i said it myself
  • not exactly the picture of a 'Madame Sting' (in looks), but your personality is 'Sting' (Tecknicoleur Grl)
  • Appear tough on the outside, soft, mushy, feely and emotional on the inside (Prism) - Very true
  • Troublesome  I don't know if i 100% claim this one, but i have a nickname that ends with wahala and i am frequently described as feisty. Does that make me troublesome? Maybe...a little bit. The fact that i am majorly blunt doesn't help.

Ok! That was fun. Thanks to my willing participants. Now it's back to real life. I have a homework that was due today but my awesome M4 facilitator extended the deadline to wednesday. Thank you Jesus. I feel like kicking myself for the stupid! mistakes i made on this exam. Stupid!!!!! I blame tiredness. Argh. Time to strategize for the next one which is in 4 weeks. No seriously, these people are crazy. We have 7 weeks left in the semester (excluding this week which is week 10) and of those 7 weeks, i have exams on 4. It's ridiculous, but the time for complaining has passed o. I have to fight fire with fire.


  1. I could have answered the question Ibhade asked. lol.

    Telling lies...I can totally feel you about that.

    Why do you do post-mortem after tests! Please don't. It is so depressing. You now spend so much time flogging yaself just like you're doing...Though positive side is, I never fail the same question twice.

  2. The final is cumulative so i have to go see what i got wrong. If it wasn't cumulative, i wouldn't bother.

  3. I've even forgotten about this, I'll be looking out for that cheesecake. :)

  4. Always glad for new info...I've pretty much had you down to a T

    Good luck with the rest of the semester yea...x
