The night before the start of a big exam.
the one thing that i would do, as the last thing, just the night before the start of a big exam, is to call my mom.
just her voice is enough to sooth me. and her advice would be unbelievably simple yet pin-point perfect as if she knows what to say exactly to me.
She said, just be calm, and just do the exam as you would normally do. She reminded me to keep strong faith to Allah for guidance and always to remember a verse from Al-fatihah.
“You (Allah), do we worship. and Your aid, we seek” (1:5). [“Hanya kepada-Mu kami menyembah, dan hanya kepada-Mu kami meminta pertolongan”]
So….let’s embrace the exam, and hopefully become a good doctor in the future!
