Review: Not that Good

Daily Prompt: Four Stars

by michelle w. on June 6, 2013

Write a review of your life —  as if it were a movie or a book.

Prince’ life is full of challenges, lessons and on a constant chase towards happiness. He selects all the goods he find in religion (Christianity, Islam, Catholicism). His life is an unending story of learning and relationships. He has deep respect for knowledge and loves history and astrology.

This guy has an inconsistent and contrasting descriptions of oneself.

He can be bold, cold and ambitious, someone who takes his goals seriously.

Prince never gave his trust away that easy and is fine and settled not being trusted.

Often categorizes the people around him to their designated ranks, each ranks has his/her own benefits and limits.

He is someone who appears to be good but has too a fair share of dark schemes”

Prince is a contemplative man who thinks and worries a lot deep inside. Most of the time, every step he takes are well calculated and purposefully done. He learned to be cautious and knows for a fact that his life story isn’t a business of others. He relies on himself alone and takes favor from others very hard to accept. He thinks highly of himself and have a deep respect of knowledge.

He is aware that people is often motivated by future rewards and tries to master how to use this to his own benefit. He might deceive you by appearing innocent and kind, never try to step on him because this man know how and waits for the perfect opportunity to bite.

His looks might deceive you, he isn’t that good as you might thought.


Letting go AHD LAB


Seven days from now, I will be putting off my gloves and hand over my responsibilities in the labarotory among my peers. I might be leaving and taking new paths; but all is for the better.

I perceive the laboratory im working-in as a “cracked piece of glass”, the handler has only two option, either to keep it and hold on to it carefully or to exert force to break it. Proudly, I can say I did everything to keep it alive and functioning. Being paid at an “asian-rate” in this country, my salary can’t reciprocate how much I have given and sacrificed for the laboratory and for the whole institution itself. I often see myself too brilliant, too skillful and too diligent to be around people who are far from being me (thats the proud me speaking).

I must admit, there was a time that I care less of my department. I just grew tired and became exhausted of giving a 100% of myself into something who can’t reward me what is just for me. Then I realized, If I will not take care of the laboratory, who will? The downfall of the lab would be my downfall.

Sure, I will miss the my workplace for more than two years. It seems that every arrangements and every files in it have my hand prints on it. That’s the thing I like about it, I had full control of almost everything inside. I can hide, edit and do everything at the tip of my finger tips. 

I may not be able to learn advance techniques in my career during my stay here nor handled state-of-the-art diagnostic machines so far, but there is one big thing I will take away from my experience working in the American Hospital Doha-and thats management. Now, I even think I can establish a laboratory of my own given enough funds and connections.

Yes I may rant over and over again in this blog on how wasted I feel at times being here; how the ambitious me settled into somewhere Im too big to fit. Then further contemplations reminded me that I made positive memories here. I met good friends, learn more about life and most importantly learn how to become a better man.

Though I am leaving this place, I hope the people in the hospital will remember me as someone who did his job diligently, a man who respected and treat everyone nicely and the laboratory technologist who releases correct results on time.

I will surely miss you AHD LABORATORY. It is time to let you go and give you to the caring hands of others.
