smiled confidently

kangsexual  asked:

I would love to pursue medicine but it's a very competitive course: you may pass the test then fail interview and vice versa. Can you please give advice to people considering on taking medicine?

Make yourself as appealing as possible before you apply - extra curriculars, volunteer work, work experience etc sell yourself in your personal statement and study hard for any tests you have to do, all the usual stuff.

Interview advice really depends on the type of interview you have to do, I had to do both panel and MMI for different universities and they are very different experiences. But mainly remember that most (although not all) interviews aren’t trying to test you intelligence. If you’ve got to the interview stage they know you’re smart, what they care about then is you as a person. So just be confident, smile a lot, be friendly to your interviewers and just be yourself because that’s what they want to see. And don’t try and lie and bluff your way out of hard questions, just admit you don’t know because the fastest way for them to drop you from consideration is if they see you as someone who lies or can’t admit to their own flaws or mistakes

Also if you do get in, just accept that your going to be running on stress, sleep deprivation and coffee for the rest of you life. You’ll love it, but it’s definitely a struggle!

You can never be 100% certain about anything that happens in this world.  But one thing you can be certain about is who you are, where you’re from and what you stand for.

There are times when life will be at its toughest, but those days will be overshadowed by the brightness of future days to come! XD

Let’s go eat sloppy Joe’s and gossip about how we can make the world a better place~

Happy International Women’s day! XD

Surround yourself with the dreamers and doers, the believers and thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see the greatness within you, even when you don’t see it yourself.

I used to worry about having my arms exposed. I would wear jackets and undershirts all the time. One day in middle school, my dad asked me “Why are you covering your arms? It’s okay to have them out.”
Sometimes, it just takes a little bit of reassurance from the ones you love to get you through tough times. XD

Sometimes, we lose ourselves by focusing on where we could be, instead of appreciating how far we’ve come. We all have different attributes and physical features that make us beautiful. I wish we would celebrate that more than making others feel less. Compliment a random stranger; Take time to make people feel loved. The world needs more kindness, not hatred.

Still amazed I even let myself get to that point. Good thing those days of being careless with my health are over, and that person on the left is dead & gone. I did it all from the muscle! No short cuts, no easy way out. Just clean eating and exercise is all it takes. .

I don’t take stress lightly because the long-term effects are damaging to one’s mental health. Whether it’s school, family & friends, or just life in general, there’s always a point where things seem like their spiraling out of control. Whenever that happens, I do the following to get me through it: 

1. take happy pictures (I do this a lot, like… excessively)

2. dance/sing (this just got easier bc I have Lemonade now, thanks Beyonce)

3. Pray. plain & simple

4. know that there are some things that are beyond my control, and that is ok

4. take a shower 

5. take deep, slow breaths

6. look at myself in the mirror and realize that I am worthy of greatness 

7. know that everything will work out in the end. 

It wasn’t his sweet smile or his confident posture. It wasn’t his irresitible laughter or his calming voice. It was his beautiful eyes and the way he looked at me, the way he stared at me, the way he made me feel.
