Gory details.

We just finished our first exam for the final period of this semester, and I can’t help but to curse myself. I can’t believe I was not that sensitive to details. I can’t believe how did I let myself not memorize those tiny bits of information that I’ll be needing to answer the questions in my exam. How come I did not focus on the details, hence, I relied on the main topic?!


One of the unforgivable mistakes in our profession is being insensitive to details. Study hard, focus harder. I am a fool if I say that what I’m going through right now is easy, and one of the key elements of getting through is by being a “detail-oriented student”. At the precise moment that I passed my examination booklet to our proctor, I felt low and sad. Most of the answers for the questions in the exam are in the book, I was able to read all of them, but I forgot to make a mental note about those bits of information. Bottomline, I was not able to answer some of the questions properly. Oh dear, I should be more sensitive to details. I might be missing on a lot of things, and I can barely notice it. I’ll focus more. There might be small things/details in my life that I am not aware. I think I have to be more sensitive. Well, sensitive in a good way, of course.


All I want is to pass all of my subjects. Well, with all honesty, I want to be on the Honor Roll. I have big dreams, you know. 🙂 I don’t know the right and precise way get high grades, except by studying really hard. I hope I’m doing the right thing. I hope I’m on the right track. And if I’m not, I hope I’ll find the right way to get high grades.


How about you? Are you sensitive to details? Can you give me an advice on how to focus more on my acads? Thank you! 🙂

  1. It depends on my mood if I want to focus on that =)) But most of the times, I do. When my blockmates and I are having this review thingy, I sometimes ask questions to them then they’ll say to me, “What? Pati ba yan?” Haha. I dunno, I guess I’m just used on including even little details whenever I’m reviewing.
