To all the women and men* Hard work pays off! I remember when I was in high school as I was studying for our final exams my boyfriend at the time asked me "don't you get sick of studying all the time? Don't you feel like you're just wasting your life when you could be spending all that time doing better things" he spoke as he held the remote of his PlayStation. I thought it so ironic he believed study was a waste of time getting in the way of his gaming time while I thought the reverse 😂I explained to him that for me, I think studying is the one activity over all that is the best use of my time, it is what allows me to grow, develop, understand new things and will take me anywhere I want to go. That, for me, any moment I spend that isn't taking me one step closer to my goals feels like a waste of time. Luckily for me the high he felt for video games was the high I feel for learning. Study is my drug. I don't get the same enjoyment out of anything else in life. It might sound silly, but I can't help it. I love studying alone and being thrilled by every new piece of information I absorb and becoming engrossed in new unfamiliar topics, I love learning collaboratively and being fascinated by the different interpretations and ways of learning and recalling information, and seeing things through another's eyes, any form of mind broadening experience is my happy place. My biggest frustration is a stagnant environment that doesn't challenge or change you. I think that's one of the big reasons I was always drawn to medicine. A career of life long study is so appealing and exciting! A career of non-stop challenges and always something new, unique patients, unique circumstances, novel science, the latest technology and techniques. Where novel research meets patient care. For the best patient care you can't allow yourself to become outdated, you must keep up with your studies. I love studying and I love people and I can't imagine any other career that could fulfill me more in those two areas so entirely other than medicine. When you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life 👩🏼⚕️🏥🚑💊💉📚📝 #study#grind#hussle#dreambig#nevergiveup#medicine

Not only is it Hump Day, but it’s also my birthday 🎉 When I was younger, I was so eager to grow up and hit all the big milestones, and now that those have come and gone, I have a completely different appreciation for each year that passes. Today I have been curled up in bed sick - totally not how I wanted to spend today - but it allowed me to reflect on the past 10 years and think about the things that I wish I could go back and tell my 15 year-old self.
I would tell her to love herself. To stop looking in the mirror and analyzing every ounce of fat she thought she had. To eat the donut. To stop counting calories. To be happy in her own skin.
I would tell her to ask for help. To swallow her pride and realize it doesn’t make her weak. To open her eyes and see the people around her that love her and want to help her. To stop fighting the anxiety on her own. To not be swallowed up by her depression.
I would tell her to let go of the negativity. To forget about the boys she cried over. To ignore the girls who made fun of her because little did she know what her world would look like in 10 years.
I would tell her to take a deep breath and not let the world around her pass her by. To stand in a rainstorm. To jump in a pile of leaves. To make a snow angel in the freezing snow. To smell the flowers.
I would tell her to believe in herself. To have confidence in herself. To know her worth. To know she is capable of moving mountains. To own her brilliance.
Happy 26th Birthday to moi!

No takiego zdjęcia na moim insta jeszcze nie było, no ale pochawalić się musiałam w końcu 😂 pewnie część z was się zastanawia po co mi stetoskop skoro jestem na drugim roku 🤔 No cóż odpowiedź myślę jest prosta, bo na RM zaczynam niedługo kardiologię i ogólnie kliniki więc obstawiam, że się przyda (pamiętam, że na praktykach w karetce już mnie gonili za to, że nie mam własnego). Dzisiejszy dzień szybko zleciał i raczej spokojnie. Miałam biostatystykę i powiem wam, że serio nie rozumiałam co do mnie prowadzący mówił 😂 (zresztą chyba nie tylko ja XD). Wczoraj za to spędziłam 10h na uczelni i pod koniec już miałam taki kryzys, że podsypiałam na wykładzie. Najgorsze jest to, że teraz często będę miała takie maratony na uczelni 😓 halo halo kiedy mogę odpocząć? Wczoraj @med_jerry stwierdził, że to studiowanie dwóch kierunków wychodzi mi już powoli bokiem XD a przecież jeszcze październik się nie skończył 😂😂 dobrze, że nie mam na razie za dużo do nauki, bo inaczej nie wiem kiedy bym się uczyła 😂
No cóż zobaczymy czy dam radę 😁 miłego wieczoru! #medicalstudent#medlife#medicine#medmotivation#medstudent#stethoscope#littman#ecg#studygram
