Aya's B'day Cake!

I loved the cake my mother got, can a cake get any prettier?! :)

p.s: Did ayone turn twenty-five and didn't feel like they actually did turn twenty-five?

Got done with the exam day before yesterday. I think it went ok but it was tough...lots of questions where I was like “what in the world are they talking about?”. I am just glad its over. Keeping my fingers crossed now and hoping for the best…results in about three weeks(which means you all have got to keep praying!)!
I am scheduled to take step 2 CS in two weeks. For the non medics…this one is a test of clinical skills with encounters with simulated patients(so basically its all pretend). I have taken these past two days off and will start studying for CS from tomorrow….(how exciting!…is anyone getting sick of hearing about all these exams and the studying yet?).

I take the USMLE step 2 ten days from today,inshallah.Its an 8 hour long exam with an hour of break time and so not only tests clinical knowledge but is also a test of stamina.I am doing ok so far but every day is a fight....its hard not to feel low or have self doubts and this has to be my greatest weakness.Its not just the exam but also the fact that a lot hinges on how I do on this.I went through a terrible pre-exam phase last December when I took step 1....its not that bad this time but the uncertainity is still there.To the few who visit my blog regularly...your prayers are needed and will be much appreciated.

I’ve been tagged by Beautiful Stranger to take a test to measure how gross I am. Here are my results….you wouldn’t mind me being your doc with that level of grossness (is that even a word?)…would you now?

12% gross
