Till then, take care

Hello for the last time everybody!

Yes, these past several months of writing for the university blog have been great. It is now time for me to write my last post.

I just went to see my consultant this morning for my Mid Course Appraisal (medical students have a logbook which needs to be appraised by a consultant during an attachment). She said that she has been sensing my lack of confidence and wished to discuss about it with me. Well, I didn’t tell her everything about my life like how I used to be one of the top students and then, ended up being a mediocre at this medical school. I just simply told her that I am not confident at times. Then, she ended up giving a long motivational speech to remind me that I’m here because I’m good; that I won’t make it this far in this medical school if I haven’t earned good marks in my exams.

“You are no less than any other, Wafi”

I was happy that she actually took her time to give me some morale-boosting comments. You know, I think I am one of the lucky students who end up getting consultants who really want to help me unleashing my true potential. Most of my consultants in the past are just so encouraging. Alhamdulillah, thank you Allah for giving them to me 🙂

Well yeah, I think it would be a good thing to end my position as one of the first Student Bloggers for The University of Nottingham with an inspirational post. Now, I just want to show you some pictures of my friends who graduated in summer this year. It was really inspirational for me to see them graduating. Simply gave me that extra push to keep on going.

Kamal graduated from the University of Birmingham


Shafiq Zuki graduated from Herriot-Watt University

And last but not least, I would like to share with you one last inspirational quotation:

“When doomsday comes, if someone has a palm shoot in his hand, he should plant it”

This quotation is very inspiring to me really. It’s so optimistic and made me feel that we should always be positive. Let’s be grateful for the present and make it the best as we can so hopefully inshaAllah, we’ll have a great future.

For one last time,

Till then, take care

Wafi 😉
