Oya oh, gist is served. 😁

So the little-big-thing we looked at last is sleep; we’re still on the matter.

Some memories ehn, they just make you reassured that no matter what, God no go shame us. πŸ˜†πŸ˜†
This is one of them.

It was the first day of the Part 1 MBBS exam(our first professional exam), and as the custom is we began with Anatomy theory.

The night before, I crossed t’s and dotted i’s over and again, but I still did not feel ready. Everywhere I turned there was a new material to jack or one strange information from a senior colleague tagged “important”, so I kept filling my head till 7am of the exam day.

Sitting on my bed (upbunk) my eyes were hurting and my vision became increasingly blurred as my head pounded, so I took off my glasses to rest for a bit, plugged in one of my recorded gross materials and leaned against the wall.

Of course you have an idea of what happened next. πŸ˜‚

As always, the intention never comes through. I planned to shower by 7:20 and by all means make it to school by 8am.

Brethren and sisthren, to Jesus be my glory, for I awoke an hour and some minutes later and lo, the hostel was quiet.

I wondered what was going on.

Everyone had left for exams. My roommates, who coincidentally were my classmates too, amazing humans, had locked the door thinking everyone was out.

Thankfully, we all had a key, if not… Hehehe.

I became flash that day. πŸ˜‚

Waking at 9am, I rushed to shower, got dressed, did the “Moore-road journey” and arrived in school at a time I do not recall. It was a grand entry. πŸ˜‚

Everyone was seated already, papers had been shared and exams had started.

I was sent to a different hall to write as the invigilators suspected I was waiting for answers before turning up for the exams. 🀦

I wish that’s how my ordeal ended, though, because when I finally got my sheets, the whole Jack Bauer stunt I was pulling got to me: letters were dancing in my booklet, stuff was jumping inside my head and a host of other activities all at once.

I had to rest my head for a few minutes to settle my thoughts before I began writing. As always, God no dey shame us. 😁

It came out good, but…

That day I learned the hard way not to work myself into overdrive.

Don’t wait to learn the hardway. Schedule rest periods for yourself intermittently.

I’m rooting for your health. πŸ₯‚

With love,

Your healthtechie. πŸ’œ
