School Makes Me Feel Sick

Hello. Today I am very mad and I will be detailing everything as coolly and calmly as I can. This might not be a universal problem and might not even be something that concerns everyone, let alone the folk who come read my blog, but it is still an issue that needs to be talked about discussed.

Being a medical student, there is absolutely no doubt as to how expensive it is to be here. Medical education must be one of the most financially draining fields out there to grow in. Doctors walk out of medical school, some in heavy debt and some with more financial spending ahead of them. It takes a long time for medical students to get on their feet and to reach a stage where they can finally earn enough to start paying back the heavy loans they take just to get where they are. Sometimes, you can't help but wonder if there is any future for young undergraduate doctors (in my country) where the pay usually isn't enough. It's a pretty sad life sometimes.

How Am I Studying: The End of Third Year

I remember when, not too long ago, I used to be writing all sorts of study posts during first and second year. Something happened around the end of second year (even now, I'm not quite sure what), but I just haven't been able to get back to the groove of writing about studying. I've always wanted to be one of those study focused blogs, but that seems to be getting harder and harder by the day.

Sometimes, the best way to get things done or to get things to change, especially if you're unhappy, is to take the first step and get started. It doesn't matter if the first step is really small, you just need to start and get the momentum building. You'll get where you want to be before you know it. However, something important to keep in mind before taking the journey is to consider how much you are willing to sacrifice with it.

There's no point in committing to a cause and getting started when you are just doing it for fun or if you don't know if you really want to do it in the first place. I feel like that's a problem I face a lot. There are multiple things that I want to do, but I am never sure if I will be able to put in the kind of effort that is required to get the ball moving. I wish I had the time to sit down and think about all these things and plan them out, but let's be real, I'm never going to find the time until I make the time, and if I can't make the time, then maybe I shouldn't be doing it in the first place.

It's a bit of a defeatist ideology, I realize, which is why I'm trying really hard to start working on things I think I am passionate about. The truth is, I have a multitude of ideas. I just need to get started.

Hello to October of 2017

There's something great about the month of October. Maybe it's the fact that it's an announcement that autumn is here and autumn is my favorite season. It's that time of the year when summer is finally slinking away back to the other hemisphere and winter is on the scene. Yes, I love winter a lot, mostly because summer is no good for my hijab and also, I love wearing sweaters/hoodies and my boots. It's like my fashion statement (that I can only wear for six months a year). Sad right? I'm planning to move out to a place where it's boot season all year. Any suggestions?

Sorry for these low quality pictures.

SketchBookArt: The Scanned Edition

It's been ages since I did a sketch book post. Remember those old posts where I would share random things I had been creating? Yeah, those haven't been happening for quite a long time. There are plenty of reasons for it which I will highlight for you below. I hope you're ready for some rambling and some pretty pictures!

First of all, my old phone had a really messy camera. It was like taking pictures from a microscope honestly, with lots of artifacts and dust in the lens. I didn't even want to post any pictures on Instagram (and hence why my Instagram was not updated since February). Now that I've got a new phone (not a brand new one, but new for me anyway!) with a much better camera, I've been trying to ease back into a posting routine.

Secondly, I haven't really been in the "art" zone for the fast few months, which is kind of ironic, since I thought I used art as a way to escape stress and to clear my mind for a bit. However it seems like I was too stressed to take a break in the first place. Hopefully things will get better though. I've been trying to make new things, but my preference seems to have reverted back to watercolors over color pencils.

If Death Note Happened In Pakistan

You've heard of the anime (takes place in Japan). You've heard of the Netflix movie (takes place in Seattle). Now get ready for the blog post where we explore what would happen if Death Note took place in Pakistan.

You know me. I'm Kanra, that one blogger who's obsessed with watching new things and then extrapolating them to see how it would play out if the setting was changed to my own country. So far, the only one I've done is for the Walking Dead and you can check that post out here. I have been considering to do a similar post for Daredevil and maybe the Avengers, but for now, let's settle with Death Note.
