Auscultating : Stark Difference

Most people probably would say, "It's because your parents know you are independent enough,".

Well, being a child one would still expect some, attention.

Or my middle syndrome still kicks in all the time.

5 years in my veterinary school, I had little to no help to get to place; except for my poultry practical where my mom knows the boss from high school. The boss owns the company which is on Bursa Malaysia so its probably the biggest deal I had.

Apart from that, I lived the DVM life probably with minimal support from the family.

However, other siblings probably have even more help from the family in their career development.

Going all out to get the best coach, the best shoes, the best racquet and all the contacts in the world to get the sister into the national team; and still going all out.

Sending in name cards, getting companies, fixing appointments in and out of the country to get the brother into a good internship program; all in the family Whatsapp group.

And I basically, update about how busy my working hours are and not expecting anyone to actually appreciate nor understand what I go through. Sometimes I do wonder if I should be bothering to update anyone about anything at work.



Not that I'm complaining about my work because everything is great. 
I'd probably wish someone is there to listen. 

I'm probably asking for a lot, while the family is busy with everything else my new niece, my sister's badminton career and my brother's credit to graduate.

Maybe I'm too independent, to cause the start difference.

Auscultating : Working, now, week 1

I has been 1 week since I started working, and it have been crazy, literally.

The first day of work I started with my first spay in a 1.5 years hiatus from surgery, with the diagnosis from A-Z including blood smears, ultrasound, IV ports, blood works and towards the spay.

The spay was, eventful seeing how things have happened.

Nevertheless, my boss saved my ass, and the patient is now on 4 paws after 5 days of great care thank to the team.

Working have been, interesting.

I began to get used to people calling me a Dr, although I seldom introduce myself as one. I just don't think it's really right to use the title on demand; it should be from an earned title when people see what you can do to help their companions.

Handling the clinic was not easy at all. Despite most warded cases and stable under my boss's care, the outpatients can be quite a handful.

I am just extremely lucky my boss is a very open vet, who is constantly willing to listen and answer to my pleas and confusions as a budding vet. No questions are stupid, and every little bits are actually a chance to learn.

Overtime is still a very normal thing to happen on daily basis, but I should strive to hit the car by the right time soon so both me and my boss wouldn't get a burnout.

As for personal life, I knew that after the beginning of work, I will lack the time and space to handle it; even more when I should be learning all the appropriate ropes as a young vet. Maybe I should just not bother about any stuffs, at least not until I am on my feet and ready to actually commit time for something as delicate and another special person in life.

On the other hand, my boss gave me a challenge to hit my DVM 1 look by the time I leave the clinic in January. I took up the challenge, but I should stop eating like a king for dinner...

Until the next post then!

Auscultating : Work

Finally, I'm employed and I will be starting the job tomorrow.

After a 3 good months of not doing anything.

I'm quite excited, yet nervous. But it will only be wards duties tomorrow so I guess its still okay.

The real deal will start on the day after, when consultations officially start holly molly.

Wish me luck people.

Auscultating : Ending DVM

Hello people, finally I'm back for good after a long hiatus in my clinical years.

Guess what? I'm finally done with vet school.

6 long years, ups and downs, but I have to admit I enjoyed every bits of it.
The great people, the high school drama, and definitely the chance to learn with my fellow animals.

People still think we only see companion animals, like cats and dogs; but really we see so much more including birds, horses, cows, goats, sheep, pigs, reptiles, and heck even fishes.
At this point I'm pretty much in a limbo, basically because I'm still waiting for a final call.

Nevertheless, I'm sure things will turn out fine. Until then, I should be honing my skills as a private practitioner in a companion animal clinic.
Where will I be? Well, that's for me to know and for you to find out! *if you were to be interested anyways*

Auscultating : Final Lap

It has been a whole semester since I've last posted, and boy its my final semester in vet school!

Or rather, its actually my final week as a vet student; for I will be taking my professional exam for the next 2 weeks.

I will post about the course taken in my last semester after I'm done with my professional exam, and really, final semester was no joke.

Until then, here's a picture of my last rotation group mates:

Auscultating : People through social applications

So I have been using social applications now and then to meet people.

To date I've met about 3 people through applications whom I have intimate contact with. Of course, everything did not go pass 1st base.

Up to last Tuesday, I was wondering was I two-timing the people I met because I was responding and meeting two different people.

Yet, we never really came to consensus that we are seeing each other actively, so it's more like dates over you know, official.

But they didn't end up well either. Usually after the intimacy everything else went to, well, nothingness.

And so few days back I met someone again. Sounded like a good catch until the other side expressed the fact that probably we wouldn't go pass being friends and the person actually was meeting another.

At this point it came back to me that, geez, why am I doing this to myself all over again.

What happened to the policy of getting wooed instead?

Hmm. Oh well. Sometimes I do dread relationships. Having cuddling intimacy with my patients spike more oxytocin and dopamines I'm sure.
