A little goes a long way

A friend of mine, a dear one saw my essay, and from out of the blue just told me, " ...I'm proud of you." Now, he is a really good writer who can be quite the critic, so i wasn't sure whether i should take his word for it. Well, he did mean it, and he doesn't know it, but it meant the world to me.

It pretty much made my day.

(Thank you. )

Tip #1: Stock up your handy helper

A pocket pc is a handy little helper for any medical student or intern... instead of carting along all your books, you could have the mini e-book versions stored in your PDA, so you can access them quickly.

Or if you just want to read things on the side, there is no better way than to take them around with you. There are lots of sites online which offer downloads and freeware.

Take advantage! :-)

1. Freeware for pocket PC

There's no listing for "medicine". Ouch.

Most of my classmates in premed, when we took up Medical Technology are either married, working, or both. A cousin of mine, who is two years younger than i am, is working in the States as a lab tech, and she is earning major dough, having her own place and care, and matching laptop and camera.

I, on the other hand, am slaving away, on my job as a medical intern, living with my parents and making ends meet. I'm years away from achieving my dreams, eons away from that world tour I was planning. To say the least, I'm still miles away from getting the means to have my own family, have kids... well, I can, but then they wouldn't be going to international school like i've always dreamed they would (and should).

Konnichi wa

There is a difference between someone telling you you're beautiful, and knowing for yourself that you are. a big difference.

Hi, I'm Mia, and I'm formally opening my blog, on this, lovely rainy day of August the 13th, my birthday. :-)
