This week I got accepted into a premed school in my country. And this feels like a great accomplishment for me because it’s a great start. And I’ll be doing the med school exam soon and that makes me happier!
Some days ago I was genuinely devastaded because I felt my supposed “dream career” being taken away from me. But the truth is I was just closing a cycle, because I knew I didn’t want that. I didn’t want to be a pilot, or an engineer or whatever, because If I had I would have fought for it.
I mean I’m passionate about it. And it makes me happy, and I like what they do. But for the most part I love the idea of what they do and their job, and not the reality of it.
Like sure, it’s okay to dream but you can’t make a dream out of fantasies. And that’s something I had to remind myself.
Medicine on the other hand… Has always been my dream. And even though you need a lot of discipline and hard work and skills, I’m actually willing to work to get there. Because I like it even when it’s not sugar-coated as “I’m going to save so many lives!!!”. Because yeah, that’s beautiful and makes me happy. But I also need something to keep me grounded.
In fewer words, Medicine is so much more than “helping people” and I like even the not so pretty parts of it.
There’s a reason why last year I was studying so hard to approve the premed exam, instead of working to improve my GPA. And the reason is deep down I knew what I wanted.
The important thing of all of this is… I learned my lesson.
I learnt that I shouldn’t just focus on an idealistic view of things, because that’s not how the real world works… and I can dream, but also focus on taking action. And lastly that I can’t stop having my life on hold for people who don’t care about me, and won’t wait for me.
I just wanted to post these since I said I would. But happy birthday Hanayo!

Has anyone mentioned yet how our schools and education will be affected without net neutrality?
Think about schools who already have ridiculously low budgets that have to stop using important and useful sites on the internet because they can’t afford it.
Think about schools that CAN afford it, but have students who can’t access their work at home and struggle to keep good grades because of it.
Think about college students who struggle to even keep their apartments and get food on the table who suddenly can’t afford to access sites they need for their classes.
I’m no professional on this stuff. I don’t know exactly how it would work for education, but either way the removal of net neutrality is going to negatively affect everyone (except your service providers).
you’ve been waiting to read your new book all day, finally getting to sit down with it and a cup of tea. soon you’re lost in its content, hearing only the sound of pages being turned gentle rain outside.
you’re laughing so hard tears being to form in your eyes, you’re stomach already hurting. no matter how hard you and your friend try, you both just can’t seem to stop.
it’s early, way too early in the morning, the sun hasn’t even come up yet. still, you’re already awake, seemingly before the rest of the world. everything is quiet and calm as you calmly breathe in and breathe out, ready to start the day off right.
“great work!” the little note on your essay says. you’ve worked so, so hard for this, and finally it has paid off. instantly, you begin to smile, newfound motivation radiating off of your beaming face. you can do this, everything you set your mind to is possible.
sometimes it seems like you can get lost in their eyes forever, forgetting the world around you. nothing exists, and even if it does, nothing comes close to being as important as this moment and the happiness you feel.
“No doubt you’ve been wondering. You’d been waiting all year to see if I’d return. Well, you’ve nothing to fear. Night falls once again, and the wind howls through. It’s me, Dr. Junkenstein, and, oh, how I’ve been waiting for you.”
