Tough times don’t last, tough people do.

It’s now less than 2 weeks to my physician exam. This will be my 3rd and probably final sitting. Honestly, I dread to think of what is going to happen if I do not make it this time. I have friends and consultants coming to ask me to plan for just “in case scenario.”

Dory had left Geelong to work nearer to the Melbourne city. I do miss her, no doubt. She had been the best buddy to me. We had so much ups and downs together. Since she left, our contact had been sporadic at best. I couldn’t have faulted her for she is currently building her proverbial home with someone else…. sigh. I do miss her. I’ve felt as if a large part of me had died in the last week. I wish….. never mind.

I am currently not matched to any hospital for this year. Which means I am currently jobless. That’s right, an experienced doctor like me, jobless. On the plus side, there are some vacancies around, though not necessarily what I would be looking for. Fingers crossed, I shall pass my exam, and then probably do some locums work. It’s not a bad idea to do some extra courses as well.

Cheers to hopefully better days ahead, however doubtful I am of it.

Arriverderci.
