The last week has been so crazy. Between my website, internship and volunteering, sleeping was the only thing I had time to do.
I finished my internship on Friday. These two weeks in the hospital with my teacher taught me a lot, not only medicine but some things I could use to guide my medical career in the future. It was really interesting to listen to stories about our medical system and our patients, as well as advice for our career. His told us to learn things for ourselves, for the moment we will be the only thing that will be standing between our patients and death. And it is so true, because we will be real doctors, and at some point in our lives we will be treating patients on our own, we will have to know a lot of things, we have to prepare for that moment everyday of our student lives. He also told us to remember to be kind, because our job is not about being God and having power over someone’s life, that our job is about the fact that people come to us in their most desperate moments, they come to us for help and we have to be patient, we have to listen to them and we have to give our best to help them. It is really important to have a lot of knowledge and to remember to be human despite all the things that are wrong in our medical system. He made me wanting to know more, because even if I don’t know what specialty I am going to choose, all I know is that I want to be a great doctor, I want to be able to help everyone, and to accomplish that, I have to know a lot of things, I have to study constantly. Let’s say that he inspired me and made me remember the amazing career medicine is.
After I finished my internship I started volunteering for SCOPE. SCOPE is an international exchange between countries all over the world for medical students. So, basically in Romania there is a group of 20 students form all over the world. So I stayed two days with them and we showed them our city, we went out with them and we tried to make their experience in Romania better. It was amazing. I had some amazing conversations with some of the students, and I found out a lot of things about their countries and about themselves. We shared our opinion about current events happening in the world, specially in Europe (like Brexit or the immigrants problem) and I could actually see different opinions, I could compare to my own and see things from another perpective. This week I won’t be able to spend time with them because I have to go and visit my parents, but when I am coming back I will definitely try to spend more time with them because I really enjoyed the past few days. I am sure some of us will remain friends in the future.
So tomorrow I will be leaving to my hometown for a week. I am not that happy about it because there is so much going on here, but it will be a good thing for me to spend some time with my family, specially since I go home like 3 times per year. I guess I will have a good time, also I get to see my little cousin, who is staying with us for a week. I can’t wait to see her and spend some quality time together.
As for my website, I tried to update as much as I could. I added WordPress themes and more resources, which I leave it up to you to discover. I will take a break from my website for the time I’m home, because I want to spend as much time as I can with my family, because I don’t know if I will be able to go home until Christmas. I will have a lot of work to do in Bucharest in the next months, so I will be really busy.
I hope you are ok, and you’re enjoying everyday of your life. Kisses, and I will leave you some questions to answer so I can get to know you better. Have an amazing day.
1. Have you ever did volunteer work?
2. If you would have the chance to visit any country in the world, where would you go and why?
3. What do you think is the most important thing to experience when you’re visiting a new country?
