The Gmail revolution...

OK, OK.. I'm one big fan of GMail. Had it ever since it was released, it was and still is my preferred webmail of choice. It's brainless to use and easily accessible from anywhere that has an internet connection. Plus, with the ever expanding storage space (dunno how in the world they do that), gmail seems to be the only email I'll probably ever need.

Was going through some emails (yes, my job now requires me to check my emails almost every hr or so) when I clicked on the link - oldest. It brought me all the way back 5,000 emails (hey, with unlimited storage, no reason to throw anything away, right), and voila, I'm back in time to when I was in M4 (fourth year med stu). Wow...din know I had gmail back then already. Those were the time when I was in the NUS mountaineering group aka Make-It-Real. Gmail was flooded with sponsor emailing, training emails.. pics and photos of mountains, all the way up to the trip planning itself. Then came the M5 final MBBS exams email lists... where we shared the tears and laughters of the exam cases. It was quite scaree back then, when you'd read each and every detail of the candidates kan-cheongness and despair during the exams. Letters of encouragement brought back the togetherness my classmates and I had weeks before the finals, all reading till the early lights of dawn outside medical library. Back then, I used to read till 3-4am in the morning, and even stayed over a few times, so much so that the security guards got used to us.

Then it was the pre HO emails, where all the orientation emails came uo. Can't imagine still, between exams and real HO work, we only had 3-4 wks of rest.... that after 5 yrs of torture. Ahh..those were really the days...

Then it was... oops....enough daydreaming already..back to work.. hehe... well, at least I'll have sth to do tonight other than training.. time to look at old photos too..


well trudge on ppl.. life is suppose to be good after all.. :)
