I will advise u as my own sister. We all have passions in life yes we all know that. One can be happy in any job one does if one make the most out of such job.
Happiness is not limited to a particular field of study as long as whatever job one does is able to put food on one's table.
Medicine is a nice course yes we all know that but not and I quote: ''the most lucrative of all careers''.
Medicine involves alot of time, energy and years to get to the peak and apogee if you must enjoy it to the fullest. For those who are already Docs, many had confirmed it that if they are given a 2nd chance to study Medicine they won't opt for it cuz most of them have little or no time for their spouse and relations for the fact that they are always in the Theatre carrying out one surgery or the other or carrying out one diagnostic procedure or the other. Time is not their friend.
If at all u truly want the MBBS then be ready to sacrifice your time and energy to get to the end of it. It is a lovely career only for the dogmatic ones. The die hard adamant ones so to say. You should be ready to read 12hours per day.
But if I were you, I would stay put with Electronics course. I believe the passion for MBBS was nurtured out of ur childhood fantasies. As u grow older u will get to know that life is not truly about what u study but what u can make out of what u have studied. Anyone can be successful in any field.
Continue with the electronics course cuz a bird in hand is worth more than two in the Bush.
However, not withstanding, follow your heart and back it up with hard work and the sky shall be ur limit.
happiness? may be after securing a job with d certificate but as of now non of us is happy . so many times when we r calculating or implementing circuits of diodes ,transistors,capacitors n inductors or programming codes we gist how different it wld hv bn if we were accepted into mbbs

i was once in her shoes and i made a costly mistake. My first admision was microbiology, i rewrote jamb in 200level and got admitted to MLS!! My mcb classmates graduated since 2010, i graduated frm mls 2013. I swear most of them i meet lately are doing well and making cool cash already. What you dont know is that course of study is not a guaranty to a sucessful future. Had it been i didnt rewrote jamb i would have achieved alot by now. Funny enough i dont think i will pratice mls! Looking into biz now!
this is exactly what I'm trying to avoid.
I pray u mk it in biz

Hmm my little contribution is that all that glitters is not gold.
So many folks follow the crowd. Some wanted to study MBBS because they think it is lucrative which is a wrong reason for anyone who truly wants to study MBBS.
They may tell u that they have passion for it. But deeply within them it is not actually passion but influence from friends or relations who want them to study that course.
Do u know that every year up to 90 students get admitted in MBBS? But in the end u see just 20 to 25 graduating and get inducted. Where are the remaining students? Most withdrawn for the fact that they repeatedly fail their MB exam.
Before one can study MBBS he must deny him or herself of so many things to be able to scape through. Even after scaping through one must climb up the ladder to become a specialist or a consultant for one to fully enjoy what medicine truly entails. And that requires many years of study with so many exams to be written.
Nonetheless, passion should go with lots of hard work and endurance.
Success is not the measure of one's career in life but one's ability to satisfy people's needs. And once a need is satisfy money will keep coming in.
I will advise her to finish the course she is already doing. She is already in 300level. That looks more promising than going for MBBS that will suck number of years from her. What if she withdraw along the line due to not being able to pass one MBBs exam or the other?
A bird in hand is worth more than two in the Bush
tanks for tht. in my class only 1 person applied to study the course all the rest are MBBS rejects, some hv withdraw some hv accepted their fate others clueless.

If I may ask, what is your dream, I can see your dream from your responses so far is mbbs, its good, and with the present Nigeria economy,you will do well if you are lucky to get a job.
In electronics also,which you have almost completed, your future is secured if you finish with a good grade and also lucky to get a good job.
Consider your age,electronics you will round up in the next 3yrs with NYSC,mbbs in the next 7yrs.
Consider sponsorship also,mbbs no be beans, you buy a lot of textbooks and your social life will suffer a bit.
Think both career through, pray about it. You have to decide this for yourself,the future is yours only. God help u.
thanks. considering my age, I want to graduate like last year I want to be done with everything and bgn d next phase of my life .my parents hv done alot to see us succeed in life and I'm last in line so I want them to see me climb up the ladder n b proud.
considering sponsorship, I don't hv a problem with that as long as I'm a student.

marvelling! It's been a while..how are you??
And to the topic, no one but you can decide your future.........do you want MBBS? How old are you? Do you want to get married soon? Can you combine marriage with the 8+ years of medicine? Can you afford the wait? Is it because you think medicine is lucrative? Just do a real self examination sweety.....and decide your future
its not about the money , I always wanted to b a doc bt now that I'm half way done wth my present course I'm having second thought abt switching

Hmmm... You've been promised a great job! Do you see yourself being fulfilled as a human being if you do that job? Will the job help you achieve most (if not all) your dreams and aspirations in life? Think about it. Its what will make you happy at the end that matters will you be happy having a career in this field?
my ambition and passion is mbbs but my present course can only fulfill my short term goals
| Career / Re: Pls Help Me Decide My Future by Destinygrl(f): 10:14pm On Dec 10, 2014 |
Go for medicine my dear. But do so only if you genuinely have passion for it. I normally would have advised you to discover your purpose in life and follow it. Find and develop your talent and see it through career wise.
thanks. I wntd to be a doc since i was a lttl grl but now that I'm in 300l and will soon be through with the whole uni thing n hv bn promised a great job afterwards I'm just confused at the moment

| Education / Re: The medical students and aspirants thread by Destinygrl(f): 2:39pm On Nov 02, 2014 |
I'll beg to differ.
Med school is 7 years(being realistic). You're currently in 200 level going to 300l and you have a medicine admission. You want to b a doctor. I see no problem in leaving whatever you're doing to do what you love- even if it means starting afresh. That is how it is done. When someone is admitted via UTME, he/she begins from 100level - irrespective of if you had a PhD.
Maybe you're young and you have so much time in your hands so you can afford to take those decisions. When it comes to career decisions, I don't think parental advice carry so much weight. Most often than none, they're subjective and prone to sentiments. Most of us have been in the system and from what we've seen over the years, we would advise differently. Which is what I'm doing.
Unless you have other reasons.
At the end of the day, it's your choice to make.
what I meant is dad suggested tht I shld graduate first may b get married too and if I still felt like I want to study MBBS I cld go ahead with it
| Fashion / Re: Beauty Of Natural Hair Thread :) by Destinygrl(f): 2:20pm On Nov 02, 2014 |
Lol I love the smell Try using a little amount. Oils as thick as castor should be used sparingly. You can also try mixing it with other oils.
If you must use a lot, I'll suggest you use it for deep conditioning so that you can wash it off after.
I used a lot after reading that it grows hair fast, I was expecting waist length overnight
use it for deep conditioning? now why didn't I thought of that before I gave it out? may be I should go get it back lol

I'm so sorry for what you are going through, but rest assured it is an easy thing for Allaah.
Now try this. Make it a constant habit to always make use of water in which you've recited some Quranic verses I.e aayatul kursiyy, suwar Ikhlaass and muwadhatain. Just one recitation for each suura and aayah is enough. Use this kind of water always to bath and drink. Dont forget the adhkaar b4 entering the bathroom or toilet. Then when u wanna sleep, sprinkle this kind of water on yourself. You do not need to remove ur clothes to do this.
I experienced this sprinkling of water idea with a brother about three weeks ago. This brother (about 30 years of age) continues to have a sort of dream induced bedwetting despite him doing adhkaar before sleeping. I have only had positive feedback from him since then.
I pray Allaah grant you victory over your enemies.

my dear, treat promises like a handful of air. It holds no true meaning, what if the person promising you a job gets sacked, dies or your relationship strains immediately you need the job? Humans would always be humans. If it is your true passion, I would advise you to take it. You can convince your family, I am sure they would understand. Yet, you can still let it go, but never base your life on the word of mouth of a fellow human being. Think of the next 20 years, your state of mind then, what would you have preferred mi lady. Whatever rocks your boat my dear. What a funny world, a million people out there are dying for this course, yet we have someone who is not that concerned and has been given. Life is something else.
thanks so much for the post, its funny how 1 cld find the answer 1 seeks in a quastion(wt wld i prefr in d next 20 yrs)
nairaland is really powerful deciding my future on the advice I got here thnks all so much
| Education / Re: The medical students and aspirants thread by Destinygrl(f): 11:26am On Oct 28, 2014 |
finish with what you're doing now.
If in the next 5-10 years, you still feel un-fulfilled without the MBBS certificate (which I highly doubt), you can then go back to med school.
Lol this is same as dads suggestion,tnks
| Education / Re: The medical students and aspirants thread by Destinygrl(f): 5:03pm On Oct 27, 2014 |
Take the offer is late at all.........
if it was few years back I won't even blink before I take the offer bt now I got less thn 2 yrs 2 b through wth d whole uni thing and hv bn promised a gr8 job afterwards and besides my family r not in support of going back to 100l bt MBBS wll always remains 2 b MY passion
| Education / Re: The medical students and aspirants thread by Destinygrl(f): 4:49pm On Oct 27, 2014 |
Depends on what you want.

| Education / Re: The medical students and aspirants thread by Destinygrl(f): 4:41pm On Oct 27, 2014 |
I get ur point but it's not too late to get it while in 200L na...If u really want to be a doctor, I'll advise u to take it now when u have d opportunity to..Profcamsey will laugh or jux give a smile should he see dix ur statement..M sure he will be in d best position to advise u better...He dropped bch for med..He is supposed to be in 400L now..I so much love his bravery because it's not easy to take dat decision...I jux pray dat he should fulfil his dreams without any regrets...
wow 400l? mine is 300l, I don't know the guy but pls did he say that its worth it , does he derive the satisfaction now that he's in med schl or is it just a case of fulfilling dreams

Regular castor oil has a slight smell but Jamaican castor oil is a tiny bit stronger. It's not so bad that people can smell it on you and react to it, unless you're using too much. I think different brands smell differently too, so that could be it.
I used the regular one several times before without any problem bt the black one is different on a whole new level never going to use it again
