Pre-Ramadan Update

AssalamuAlaikum!

Ramadan is just around the corner and I haven’t been blogging for quite a few days! I thought I’d give a little update of what has happened and what will be happening here on the Lunar Descent.

First off- LMS is finally over! The official result isn’t out yet but I barely passed my IPE (Integrated Practical Examination) ;-; I’m trying not to take my failure to heart, but it does hurt sometimes, especially when you studied really hard for it. I realized that although crying is a very messy business, it does give some sort of stress relief. Heheheh.

There’s also something very exciting that’s about to happen- but I don’t want to share it with you guys yet in case something bad happens and then everything fails. But I’m excited and I can’t wait to share it!

My next module has started- it’s called Respiratory System (RES). So far, it’s just anatomy, with nasal cavities and pharynx and larynx and trachea and bronchioles. It’s interesting but there’s a lot of detail. I have just finally managed to get a grip on the structure of the larynx with all it’s membranes and ligaments!

Now for Ramadan- for you guys who don’t know, it’s the Holy Month of the Islamic calendar. It’s the month of fasting, where Muslims are required to fast from daybreak to sunset. It’s basically an exercise where we prove to ourselves and to Allah that if we can abstain from consuming food, which is vital to sustain life, we can abstain from a lot of other acts that we can live without, for example lying and backbiting.

So I guess you could say it’s a spiritual boost month!

Last year, I had put up a series of posts called “Ramadan Diaries” and I intend to do them again. The month of Ramadan is divided into three Ashrahs, or periods of ten days. I’ll be sharing how my day goes, what I did, as well as my own goals for Ramadan. It might not be as interesting as my readers would like, but I hope it would be enlightening and increase your horizon about people from around the world.

Have a great day 🙂
