"Every soul shall have a taste of death: And only on the Day of Judgment shall you be paid your full recompense. Only he who is saved far from the Fire and admitted to the Garden will have attained the object (of Life): For the life of this world is but goods and chattels of deception." (Al Imran Chapter 3 verse 185)

She is back.....atleast she thinks she is

So it has been a while since I have updated this blog. I guess this is the time when I should tell you how busy life has been and that I haven’t had a moment to myself. That is true.....I have been busy but also lazy. It will be a lie if I said I didn’t have a moment to update.....I did. What I didn’t have was the motivation or so called creativity that it takes to update this blog. This is my sorry attempt at an apology for neglecting my corner..................

What have I been up to? Since September I have been back at uni.....on my new course. No, I gave upon my ambitions to be a doctor instead I have decided to work in the allied health field. I am studying prosthetics and orthotics and before you get a confused (which is a common reaction by the way) let me explain what it entails. Prosthetics is the replacement of a body part while orthotics is correcting a deformed or deviated body part. In prosthetics I am specialising in the limbs (upper and lower) while in orthotics it is the limbs plus the torso.
School is taking up a lot of my time. However it is fun, I haven’t enjoyed a course this much in a long time. Infact I haven’t been terrified while at the same time having a feeling of contentment about academic/career future like this. I love what I am doing so’s very diverse so not boring. I study mechanics, anatomy, manufacturing and the best bit, I get to play with tools and get my hands dirty. Although by the end of my workshop classes I am so out of it as I have been on my feet for 6-7hrs.

My social life is currently on some kind of a hiatus. Although I am trying to somewhat revive it. Somewhat being the key word here lol

I am still looking for a job as the credit crunch is starting to bite me in the a** big-time. inshaAllah kheyr anyway.

I forgot how satisfying it was to put my thoughts on screen. Maybe I will get back to being a regular again......make dua

This is enough for now......I am off to write a 300wrd essay about a conference I attended.

I leave you all with kheyr inshaAllah

Hey I found you hehe!!!

Wow sounds hard I remember I did anatomy and other stuff added to the mix...though half the time I got tired of everything, and then it got intersting all of a sudden.

But one thing I have to say is i freakin hated the chemistry based classes, it sucked big time:P glad to see your enjoying yourself...good luck with the job hunting, yeah the credit crunch is starting to catch up with me too.
