Yes. It has been over a month since I’ve posted anything. It’s the niche that I have been trying to get into, especially with this summer job at a summer camp and it has been nothing short of amazing. I have had rough times and good times, I have had fun moments and not-so-fun moments, but through it all it has been quite a ride. Being a camp leader, really requires a lot of grit, strength, determination, patience and most importantly love. It is the constant reminder that you’re purpose there is to be that impact in their life, to be a hero, to be someone they can look up to. Frustrations and human impatience really does get in the way of things, but if we just step back for a moment and try to understand why we feel these things, the root of it all is that you want what’s best for these kids. It’s that moment to check yourself and put yourself in the shoes of the kids. I think that everything has to be lively and ‘out there’ for the kids. The people that I’ve worked with this summer has been incredible and I’ve learned so much about who I am and the kind of person that I want to become. It’s being humble and understanding that allows a person to grow. It’s that humble confidence that we need as camp leaders for us to be the best in what we do. I’m still trying to take in the 5 and 1/2 week that I have already worked and the amount things I’ve learned about working with children. So another 2 and 1/2 weeks until camp is over and I’m just trying to absorb every moment of it and it has been brutally awesome. We’ve had rainy days, we’ve had sunny days, but it’s the ability to take that day and make it yours, that will determine the outcome of it.

About the MCAT, I’ve read through a little bit of the physics portion of the MCAT and Kaplan does a pretty amazing job by making the sciences very interesting and entertaining. I think that’s all for now. live your life. no regrets. I’ll be making my impossible list very soon, inspired by http://www.joelrunyon.com/two3/the-impossible-list. Or I could make something a little bit like it.

“What makes a great doctor?”, he asks. It begins with a mild appreciation of his two-cents of the matter, and I’m taking these two-cents throughout my university life. It’s a reminder of what one has to see, what one is willing to do and what one will eventually become.

Want to take a sniff at it? Sniff away

Sniffing is relatively not my thing, but in 20 words or less it goes a little bit like this: loves reading, curious, observant, problem-solver, extrovert, no hidden agenda and (using up the very last few words) fortitude.

That’s it. Keep this mind. Remember it. Tattoo it on your arm pits. It’s important. 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

Passions begins in the heart. The high school journey has come to an end, and a new journey is about to unfold. I’ve began to see life in a whole new light ever since the death of my friend’s mom and my grandpa’s decreasing health. It has pushed me to live, not to exist and it has developed a more “get the best out of this day” kind of mentality in my head. I’ve started reading the “1000 Awesome Things” and there are many things that we take for granted in life, but this is not what this blog is about. This blog is about this journey of a lifetime that I have wanted ever since I was at a young age. It’s the journey to become a neurosurgeon. Many have told me to dream big, and I’ve concluded that there is nothing wrong with dreaming big. Expectations has helped me in this high school career and this passion that was built inside of me to become a surgeon is a force to not be reckoned with. Success and wealth goes a long way, but that is only a payoff, a bonus, it’s the amount of people that I want to impact, the amount of lives that can be saved, the integrity, the humility and the perseverance. It’s the beginning of the journey and it’s the beginning to many more greatness and many more experiences.

What pushed me to write this blog? Dr. Vitum Medicinus (http://blog.vitummedicinus.com/) encouraged pre-med hopefuls to begin a journey, so I’ve concluded that I could put the accounts of my life into the very words on my fingertips to the pages of the Internet.

What other things will I include in this blog? Things that inspire, things that makes me strive to be better and to do better, and my path into manhood.

How long is this journey? I don’t want to know. It’s not ignorance. All I know is that time is short and life is short. I have to take advantage of every waking moment, to be awesome.

What’s my girlfriend’s name? I don’t have a girlfriend, but if I were to have a girlfriend her name would begin with a “T” and end with an “aylor Swift”

That is all.
