Arrgh! The Only One Night Stand
We had just been meeting and those unexpected exceptional one night stands would always happen. That moment when our eyes met and I felt some heaviness inside my undergarments, I knew that it had to happen. I was not the dominating one in this since she also wanted to have some fun too. In biology, I remember we called it a symbiotic relationship. It has never been serious. We loved fun. Is that what everyone feels good about? Yeah that is it. I have to admit that the one-night-stands were soo great that i only longed for the next time i shall meet this electric beauty. I bet you understand the meaning of the term ‘electric’ as used in this context. Her name was Sally. She was the dazzling dark beauties of all time. In my village back at home, she was the only girl who at least managed to own some flesh in her gluteal tissue. To add on to that, she was the infiltrative type of lady. Meaning, she was choosy and selective to certain men. I knew she had fun with many people but I still could not get enough of her time. She had a cartel of men who I guess operated on her on my absence. She would get admitted and discharged after been worked on for hours or days. Sometimes I thought she did it for cash and that is why every time I came back to my village from college, I used to have a packet of approximately a 100 barrier contraceptives. I had that feeling deep in me about what I was getting into.
Therefore, it happened that this day, I managed to get home from school on a Friday. I was extremely tired and weary. The time was 3:30pm. The sun was still shining bitterly on my clean-shaven head. There was a bit of a shaky drizzle that was trying to drive away the sunny weather. I approached my village that was situated in somewhere deep in Ukambani. A lot of grass-thatched and mud-walled houses were the spectacular things in this region. You can imagine the tourists would come to take pictures of our houses and pay us. That shows how deep poverty had stricken our village. The only privileged man in the area was called Mr. Muthama who owned a wooden house and a bicycle.He made a lot of cash when ferrying residents to and from town and that is where he got his cash.

What’s the role a medical student? By the term medical students, we mean Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacists, Dental, and Public Health Students etc. What is our role as students when we go back to the community during our long or short holidays? Or what is our work after employment? Is it just working in hospitals? It’s a fact that we have a big role to play in the community level. A big role that will make a commendable difference like saving a life or preventing a complication. Do we just go to the community to work in clinics? How can we extend a hand to the larger community at the grassroots level? How can we reach those who come to your clinic only when they are in end stage renal disease, stage four HIV, stage IV cancer? Could there be something we can do before it reaches such an advanced stage? We actually can make a difference in someone’s life. Not just someone but many people. If let’s say you are working at a clinic in a certain County and you notice there is a steady rise in the number of patients reporting to your clinic with diarrheal symptoms as the chief complain, would you continue offering the treatment regimen of cholera / typhoid if let’s say it’s the diagnosis? Using the bottom approach, we get to know the problem is the community environment of which the situation will continue worsening if we don’t visit the community and handle the filthy environment. That’s why we are needed extremely at the community level. The reasons list is endless.
