“Shadows of bliss”

Shadows of bliss

laughters and tears
hallowness or mirth
promises but lies
a blessing became a curse

Stealing me slowly
hurting me quietly
i wanted it hopelessly
yes love is heavenly
but overdose is deadly

In that twilight cadence
of our bittersweet romance
i cried to get a chance
but tears made no difference
and i will bear the offense

The touch of your fingers
on my soft frail feathers
now only a memory lingers
in a heart full blisters
and your toxic whispers

Dear cold weather am warning you i’m not a fan!

woman-cold

In very few weeks I will be relocating to the coldest part of the country. the beautiful city of Musanze, It’s the most mountainous part of Rwanda and famous for sheltering mountain Gorillas , it’s also one of the most popular tourist destination in Rwanda.

Am going to be in Musanze for 4 months while i do my clinical. and before worrying about anything else am worried about the weather  am not a fan  of cold weather at all and am allergic. One of those beautiful advantages of living in east Africa is you are spared of cold. It’s always kind of warm and sunny even in the coldest seasons. When I hear people telling me about the weather getting under 0  in their countries and  i simply freeze. The coldest it can get here is around 17.2 degrees c. And there absolutely is no snow so what am I even crying about!

temperature-graph

January is the warmest month of the year. The temperature in January averages 18.2 °C. In May, the average temperature is 17.2 °C. It is the lowest average temperature of the whole year. (www.climate-data.org)

I was talking to a sweet old man from living in Cyprus and he was telling me how it gets really cold there. Along with giving me a few advises as to how to dress and keep warm. a hat, gloves, a coat socks, a scarf etc.. I have no idea how cold it is in doors but I can’t wear a scarf, and gloves and a heavy coat in the hospital it will just be a normal outfit and probably a sweater under my white coat.

I also have to admit that i hate over clothing honestly!  besides am a woman in her early twenties so what are you thinking about?? Most of my clothes make sure my skin gets enough sun and wind. and that makes me feel beautiful and happy. On the bright side i have been promised that the cold weather will do my skin some good so am waiting for that climate beauty.

These days i like to look at the unknown eagerly with positivity and great hope and as the summer approaches Musanze is like an hour from Gisenyi where I can enjoy the sunny and beautiful Lake Kivu, the beach the sand everythingrw155

Am anxious about the whole experience of going to a new place. I am also excited of it all, getting to see another kind of life in another city, making new friends and getting inspired by a totally new environment. so i can’t wait!

do you also hate the cold weather? any tips on to how to survive in the cold weather?

love and blessings xx

 

SUNDAY IS BLISS!

SUNDAY BLISS

Aww its Sunday! does anybody else feel like this about Sunday? it feels special. It feels relaxing. It simply feels like no other day.so i thought i would drop a collage of my Sunday bliss in the hope that every body had an amazing Sunday.  Especially those who love Sunday like myself!

Ever since i was young i have always loved Sunday’s, the excitement of having my mum not go to work but rather cook delicious meals, going to church, an opportunity to wear my prettiest dress ,visiting friends and family and so many other happy moments

When i grew up it started to drift unto something else. Having Sunday classes, or a hard exam on Monday to study for. and Missing out on the bliss of basking in this special day! but still when i wake up and its Sunday it feels different. The day looks different, and i want to make it special by eating different, and wearing something different, loving myself and being grateful about life!

The only not so perfect thing about Sunday is the anxiety of starting a new week of work and challenges. The uncertainty of what the new week will come with. but also in the quiet and relaxed mood of Sunday, we may find strength within to change.

My goal for this week is trying to find happiness in working hard!

how do you spend your Sunday? whats your goal for the new week ahead?

Happy start of a new week!

 

“When they ask”

love_and_passion_by_clupi

I will tell them that our love was lost

in the blue under the eclipsing sun

I will tell them that our friendship broke
inside of me underneath my bruised wrist

I will tell them that our hope shattered and
sank in the seas above layers of paraffin

I will tell them that our hands lost hold
in the meadows between flowers and dust

I will tell them that we merged in another world
and buried our laughters forever in the past

I will tell them that we had a treasure dearer than gold
and that for me somethings never last

I will tell them how you stepped aside and walked away
I will tell them that love dies anyway..

“Blood is red, Cyanosis is blue, Med school is a pain”

dempsey

Blood is red, Cyanosis is blue, medschool is a pain! but you know what? if this very handsome gentleman  Patrick Dempsey personally came to me and asked me to study my butt off,  i swear would. My grades would magically be at the top of the class instantly. Before i knew it i would be done with medical school. and out there being such a great great doctor!

Well i can put at up his picture on the background of my desktop when i study, but we all know he doesn’t know i am studying,  doesn’t know i need the strongest kind of motivation to keep it together, so slap me back to reality, and listen to me vent!

Am in the middle of some of those simply depressing semesters.wanna know why? haven’t done a single fair leave alone easy exam this whole semester. oh wait except medical ethics, rheumatology, and genetics but that’s all sir.

One of the most frustrating things about being in medical school is that no matter how sleep deprived, tired , determined, hungry, and pissed off you are, its never enough. You need more. You keep finding out things you were supposed to know. things you must know to survive. and by this I mean make it to the next year without landing in a psychiatric hospital or else dropping out.

medical-school-memes-google-search_original
Truth be told am not even one of the nerds! I have a rather relaxed kinda life style. you see me blogging all the time don’t you?, i do party, fool around, watch movies and make back and forth trips to town.

Even if I would say I don’t read much I actually do. We all do its just that we do it differently . Some go cold turkey others seek a little more fun and life into the whole experience without forgetting to panic about exams.

medical-school-is-easy-its-like-riding-a-bike-except-the-bike-is-on-fire-and-youre-on-fire-and-everything-is-on-fire-and-youre-in-hell-be420

I may seem not very dedicated, but boy am I trying so hard?I want to learn all these insanely complicated things so i can be able to serve ,to care , to help people. That is where my sole motivation lies. At times I just read through notes very quickly so I can pass the next exam. but that is not my goal, my goal is the overall making it, serving with my whole heart!

Bottom line is can somebody pray for me or at least give me a virtual hug?

P.S if you read this whole post , and all my venting you are a star!

 

Day 3 :” 3 days quote challenge”

my qoutes.jpg

 

Even though i have loved and been close to several men dearly, and in very special ways, the women in my life beats it all. They are the stars in the story, they are sisters, they listen more. They get crazy with me, they let me feel sorry for myself and vent, tell them the things i hate about my body or voice my sexual frustrations, they take risks with me.

They know what its like to be a woman so its like i understand them and they understand me like i had each of them inside of me, and most importantly, living with them and appreciating them everyday makes me feel grateful for being a woman.

They build me up, teach me things that men won’t, tell me secrets, give me genuine compliments or simply whisper to my ears that i wore a lousy skirt for me to get better and better..what could you trade that for?

Day 2:” the 3 day quote challenge”

Quotes

Is the world calling us towards real and genuine contentment? is what its offering us sheer joy or a poisonous gift? is it calling us to look towards the big picture or is it blinding our eyes by material things?

Day by day they leave our souls restless and hungry for more.I know of no money that is much enough. I know of no power that is much enough. We always seek more…and more until it drives us crazy and we lose ourselves into looking for things that don’t even satisfy us.

As little sense as this may make to many, what is there to compare from the fulfillment we get from genuinely loving?  from serving compassionately and wholeheartedly? and for humbling ourselves because we recognize the fragility and vulnerability of human nature..and that we are not the ones in control but GOD is!
