passion for medicine

poetic lunar sign- walt whitman

Moon in Aries

“I am larger, better than I thought; I did not know I held so much goodness. Whoever denies me, it shall not trouble me; Whoever accepts me, he or she shall be blessed, and shall bless me.”

Moon in Taurus

“To me, every hour of the day and night is an unspeakably perfect miracle.”

Moon in Gemini

“Do I contradict myself? Very well, then, I contradict myself; I am large – I contain multitudes.”

Moon in Cancer

“I will sleep no more but arise, You oceans that have been calm within me! how I feel you, fathomless, stirring, preparing unprecedented waves and storms.”

Moon in Leo

“What is that you express in your eyes? It seems to me more than all the print I have read in my life” 

Moon in Virgo

“You shall no longer take things at second or third hand, not look through the eyes of the dead, nor feed on the spectres in books. You shall not look through my eyes either, you shall listen to all sides and filter them from yourself.”

Moon in Libra

“And the human race is filled with passion. So medicine, law, business, engineering… these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love… these are what we stay alive for.

Moon in Scorpio

“Behold I do not give lectures or a little charity, when I give I give myself. I do not ask who you are, that is not important to me, You can do nothing and be nothing but I will infold you.”

Moon in Sagittarius

“Pointing to another world will never stop vice among us; shedding light over this world can alone help us.”

Moon in Capricorn

“I have said that the soul is not more than the body,
And I have said that the body is not more than the soul,
And nothing is greater to one than one’s-self is”

Moon in Aquarius

“Stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants…have patience and indulgence toward the people…re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem”

Moon in Pisces 

“I do not ask the wounded person how he feels, I myself become the wounded person.”

“We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life.”

Dead Poets Society (1989) dir. Peter Weir

Medical school is not a place for smart people. It’s a place for those who are insane enough to dream of it, pray for it, work hard for it, and live for it. It is for those who are crazy enough to want the sense of purpose that fuels their veins. And, if it is insanity, then let it be, for even if it means more sleepless nights, more examinations to pass, more years in the university and more sacrifices to endure, nothing will change. I will keep on choosing this path over and over again even for a hundred more days and a thousand more years. And nothing in this world can stop me from taking an adventure as worth taking as this, even for a million more lifetimes. Medicine is passion. Medicine is hard work. Medicine is life.

LET FOOD BE THY MEDICINE🙏🏼🌿✨🍉 many of you might not know, but I am type 1 diabetic - diagnosed when I was 9 years old. Through this, I learnt what a huge impact what you eat has on your health & wellbeing and have become incredibly passionate about using food as medicine, not only to prevent and cure disease, but also manage conditions like mine. Being the determined person I am, I always had good control of my diabetes, but since going vegan, I’ve seen SO many improvements. I’m eating more carbs than ever - yet needing less insulin: the exact opposite to what people are taught to believe.
My dream is to help other people and spread this message, and two amazing guys already doing that are @mindfuldiabeticrobby and @mangomannutrition ~ I wanted to mention this because they are holding a FREE Online Diabetes Summit this week, with incredible expert guest speakers and a WEALTH of knowledge + resources🙌🏼
If you have or know anyone with diabetes (type 1 or 2) or just want to learn more, go check out the link in their bio and sign up!! Thank you so much Cyrus and Robby💛

Introductions

Hello! I am an incoming college freshman and an aspiring doctor from the Philippines. This August, I’ll be starting my first year under UP Manila’s INTARMED, a seven-year accelerated medicine program. I discovered the studyblr community around two years ago, but it is only now that I gathered enough courage to start my own blog and post original content. Seeing the beautifully-written notes and organized desks of other studyblrs from all over the world and reading about their various experiences and advice inspired me to invest more time and energy into my studies. (In particular, I’m fond of reading masterposts for school-related tips!). Aside from this, I love how this community is very friendly and supportive; many studyblrs take the time to answer my questions and post encouraging material. Most importantly, being an avid fan and follower of the studyblr community helped fuel my passion for learning and desire for self-improvement. With this blog, I hope to document my journey to becoming a medical practitioner and to inspire others to reach their full potential in whatever field they choose. 

The following are some of the blogs that inspired me: 

@intellectus , @apricot-studies , @areistotle , @chemistri , @drop-dead-studyblr ,@essential-discontinuity , @grangergrades , @istudymed , @janetstudies , @lemonscholar , @mathematicool ,@mahal-tuition , @oristudies , @olymedicalstudent , @positive-infinity , @sadgirlstudying , @studeebean , @studycamille , @studyfulltime , @studybunny17, @studywithnikki , @the-professional-student , @theorganisedstudent , @workhardlikegranger

Vet-a-Visit is here!

Today is the wonderful day where my college puts on the equivalent of an open house. We invite people to come explore what being a veterinarian is like. We host interactive wildlife, zoo animal, small animal, and large animal exhibits. We demonstrate diagnostic techniques like radiography and ultrasound. We get to show off our CCU, radiology department, behaviorist, and our large animal clinic. Vet-a-Visit is all about teaching the public what veterinary medicine is really about and showing them that this is our passion.

Plus, it is always fun to paint the horses!

We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race and the human race is filled with passion. Medicine, law, business, engineering—these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life, but poetry, beauty, romance, love—these are what we stay alive for.
