Summer is here

Posted on: July 23rd, 2017, in Personal.

I know it’s been a month since I last wrote, but life kept me really busy. First of all I want to tell you that I managed to create a document featuring things I learned over the past year. Check it out here. I am very proud of it. It’s the first time I created a pdf document from scratch and it makes me really happy. I hope you enjoy it and that you will find it helpful.

Since my last blog so many things happened. It’s been an interesting month and I had a lot to learn from it.

4th year is over

I finished my 4th year of medical school. This year was an interesting one, but I haven’t focused on school as much as I wanted. But it’s ok, because I managed to focus more on myself and I don’t regret it at all.

Got my driver’s licence

I don’t know how hard it is to get the driver’s licence in other countries, but here is awfully hard. I failed my exam the first time because I let myself being overwhelmed by fear. When I went to schedule another date for a new examination, I was lucky enough that they put me on July 18th (usually they schedule you in 3 months). This time I knew I was ready and I refused to let my emotions control me. It was hard, and it was the longest half hour of my life. I can say the experience was a little traumatizing for me. I had a headache all day after the exam. But I made it and I am so proud of myself. Especially since almost everyone fails the exam.

My trip got cancelled

I had a trip planned from July 14th until July 18th, but since I had my exam, I had to cancel it. I was sad, because it was one of my friend’s birthday and I couldn’t be there for her. Last year I was busy too. Next year I will make it there, I have to <3.

Spent a week home

Since I had nothing to do in Bucharest I decided to go visit my parents. It was amazing because all my friends were there at the same time. I had fun, went shopping and spend a lot of time with friends and family.

Got rid of roaches

I’ve had a cockroaches situation going on for a while and I managed to get rid of them. I spend a week using sprays and cleaning everything and in the end all I had to do to get rid of them was buying a certain solution from the vet. It’s good that now I know what to do if it happens again.

Finished my therapy

I asked my therapist to end the sessions. I felt like I am finally ready to give her up and I am ready to go on my own. I don’t feel perfectly fine but now I know what I have to work on. Also, therapy is very expensive and there’s no point on spending money if I’ve learned what I had to learn and I feel much better. I hope I will be good on my own and I can make it through without help. Now I know how to help myself.

My parents visited me

It was nice having them here. Since they rarely visited (3 times in 4 years) I am always excited for them to be here and welcome them in my home. I cooked for them, we went in the city and had a great time. Now they are in a vacation in Portugal and they are coming back next week.

For this summer I have no plans. I guess I will just go with the flow and see what happens. While my parents are away, I will go to the hospital for my summer internship and probably return to my hometown afterwards.

I hope you are doing well and I’ve missed you all. Don’t forget that the store offers are still on and don’t forget to tell me your opinion about the document I created. *Hugs* from me and take care <3.

That document is so awesome! I think it will be very helpful! Is it okay if I download it to my computer so I can read it whenever I feel I need to?

Congrats on getting your license! My parents have been trying to get me to, I haven’t because honestly driving scares me. It so,day I will have to.

Overall seems your doing quite well! Keep being awesome!

First of all, congratulations on finishing your fourth year of medical school! That is such a wonderful accomplishment, and relaxing while you are on break is definitely a good idea. Confession: I still haven’t gotten my Driver’s License – although it will more than likely happen this month for reasons. I’m sorry to hear that your trip got canceled and glad to hear that you solved your cockroach problem. I might have to go the Vet about mine…I’m also glad to hear that you’ve finished your therapy. Finally, a visit from the parents is always a wonderful thing!

I am glad that this month was productive and that you managed to take self care for yourself. You need it, we all do because the worst thing to do is neglect ourselves. Hugs. I love your document and number 8 got to me the most and it’s something that I am doing with myself. To slow down and go to my own pace to achieve all the goals I have set up. I think I have to share that number on my instagram and facebook because it’s so true for me and it hurts to know that sometimes I don’t have the answers to my life, but at times, it’s okay because I will eventually get there. Life is about the journey, never the destination.

Hey. I’m fine and things are blah. XD I see you are doing good at school and things. ^_^ I’m glad things are good for you. =3

Hi Cristina! You’re not alone with the lack of blogging. I’m in the same boat as you in that department.

Thank you for sharing us your document. I also find some creative projects like this a lot more inspiring. I’m trying to get back to my therapy art again (drawing zentangles, mandalas, and I recently discovered something called “zen handlettering,” not necessarily because I have anxiety or anything, but I really need something to clear my mind and relax. I’ve had work, seriously preparing myself to look for another job, seriously going back to my online classes again, and working on a paid client project that I have that also had other things than just a business website.

Congrats on finishing your 4th year and earning your driver’s license. I was also in college/university when I first earned my driver’s license because public transportation was getting a lot more expensive then. My dad finally encouraged me to stop spending too much money and start driving on my own.

I plan on opening a series of WordPress tutorials on my other blog (The NINPOJineous –, but it would be something a little bit “in-depth” and it’ll be in very small parts too on theme development (including child theme development) and (probably) plugin development. I just remembered that you also have a theme development tutorial too and I wanted to let you know first-hand before I begin with that series. There’ll be others too, such as creating a collective using WordPress multisites too.

Well, that’s it for me for today. Talk to you one day when we both have the chance and time! ^_^

Thank you for your comment. :)
I love this layout – to be fully honest I preferred the previous one a bit more, but this one’s great too. :D

I only read the first points of your documents, but I love it – and took it down to read it later and keep it stored for all the times I might need it; it’s incredibly deep and useful. You’re amazing. :) :)

Congratulations on finishing your fourth year of med school and for getting your drivers license. I remember I was pretty stressed in one of my driver practical exams because heaps of people fail at least the first time. But at least it is over for us now!

Congrats on passing your driving test. Driving tests are quite difficult in the UK too. We have to do a theory test and a practical one, and it took me two attempts of each to pass. I know people who had to do it 7 times though, so I think I was lucky!

It’s great that you got to see your parents. Glad you had a fun time and hopefully you’ll see them again soon.

I love the document you created. It’s a really great list, and I’m sure it will be helpful to both you and others who are struggling. I love how clean the design is too!

Congratulations on passing your driving test – and on getting rid of cockroaches, those are insidious little creatures. ugh.

Just wanted to let you know that I uploaded your layout to; come see how it looks in use – and thank you again for your awesome work. :) :)

It’s cool that you made a PDF slide deck with things your anxiety taught you :). Congratulations on finishing your 4th year at med school and earning your license! Hope you’ll find some to go on a vacation. It’s helpful with getting your mind off of things. It’s great that you got to spend some time with your parents as well!

Congrats you’ve gotten a lot done this summer! Driving is scary at first, but you’ll get more confident the more you practice!
