Train cancelled. Detour. Train delayed. Packed replacement. Makeshift dinner. Breasts massively swollen. Still not home... But it's ok. Because it's Tuesday. .
And I spend Tuesdays with this bunch👆. Feeling indulgent. And lucky. And completely engrossed and interested and, well, yeah.
FINALLY | I have the chance of calling this city home next summer, post-graduation, doing an internship with a PR company through @dreamcareers! Scary to think that I'll be alone in this huge city by myself for almost 8 weeks, but I think I'll manage. I'll keep you posted on what specific company I'll be working for as the months go by! In the words of Ms. Carrie Bradshaw, "Maybe you have to let go of who you were to become who you will be." 🚖🌃
No dia 17 de setembro eu pisei em Manchester pela primeira vez. Ainda no aeroporto eu chamei um uber para me levar até a acomodação, o cara demorou mais de 10 minutos para chegar, passou por mim e foi embora. Tentei chamar outro uber, mas minha bateria acabou 🤦🏻♀️
Fui para a fila imensa de taxi e depois da longa espera o taxista perguntou o endereço, eu disse: 1st Lowbrook Avenue. Ele respondeu: qual? Temos várias Lowbrook Avenue aqui. Eu tinha tudo anotado, no meu celular descarregado 🤦🏻♀️
Quando finalmente cheguei na acomodação já era 9 da noite, eu estava cansada e com fome. Fui dar uma volta no bairro para ver se achava algo para comer, mas além de frio, as ruas estavam vazias e tudo estava fechado. Eu pensei: o que eu vim fazer aqui?
Hoje, exatamente um mês depois, eu desembarquei em Manchester pela segunda vez e tudo foi diferente! O dia estava ensolarado e quente (para os padrões daqui, claro). As ruas não estavam vazias e eu encontrei meu vizinho no caminho, caminhamos lado a lado conversando. Eu já sabia onde tinha um lugar bacana para comer e até para onde olhar na hora de atravessar a rua!
Conclusão de tudo isso: sinto que já posso chamar Manchester de "home". #Manchester#didsbury#uk#mycheveningjourney#chevening#cheveningbr#postgrad#masters#intercambio#healthdata#healthdatascience#brasileiraspelomundo#brasilerosporai
I just applied for medical school! 💉
I've been focusing all my effort this past year on building experience and the best application. I've been a support volunteer in #MiltonKeynes Hospital Emergency Dept, as part of the best #volunteer team for 2017! I've become a first aider at #stjohnambulance . I've become a Community First Responder with the #ambulance service, and assisted two 12hr shifts. I've proudly achieved a #UKCAT score of 2850 after months of stressful revision. I've read books by Kevin Fong and dreamt of the day I become a #doctor .
I've just applied through #UCAS to study at #Warwick , #Birmingham , #Southampton and #QueenMary#University of London. I couldn't be more excited or more nervous.
I'll do my best to keep this updated with the adventure ahead from now on!
Here’s our Exploration Bootcamp event from past Saturday! An incredible experience overall, a day filled with amazing guest speakers and a great audience of motivated students ready to succeed! Thank you for spending your Saturday having fun with us! A big thanks to THNK Vancouver for the beautiful space!
If your donut isn’t coated in chocolate, you’re doing something wrong. But, if you’re at @spoon_usc and you stop by the corner of Hoover and Jefferson to hang out with us and @grubhub for today’s #studyhub event, you’re doing something absolutely right. We’re handing out donuts and coffee, and you’re not gonna wanna miss it. 📸 @already_eaten #spoonfeed
STRESSED TO THE MAX! .
The past few weeks have been really overwhelming with one thing after another. We are in the throws of dealing with my step-dad's terminal cancer diagnosis. I really bit off more than I could chew taking two really difficult and time-consuming Postgrad classes AT THE SAME TIME. Then a bunch of "normal life stuff" challenges popped up all at once (car inspection due, clothes dryer broke, etc.). .
Plus it's football season, which I do really enjoy but it means practice x3/week on top of Saturday morning games (which total 4+ hours when you factor in everything).
Did I mention we're in the middle of a kitchen renovation?!?! And another little thing, just BUYING A HOUSE!!
I honestly left the gym today feeling like my workout SUCKED. 😶 i wasn't in it the whole time, I couldn't zone out like I wanted to (that's that sweet spot when it's only you in the 🌎)
I just wasn't all there. BUT ya know what: 1. I woke up today 2. I woke up earlier than many days before 3. I went to the gym to workout DESPITE the excuses in my head 4. I gave it my all 5. I hit a new PR 🙌🏻 6. I didn't give up on myself. //
And THATS ⬆️⬆️⬆️ all that matters. You're going to have days that SUCK but what SUCKS is giving up on yourself and not seeing the GOOD that you can be GRATEFUL for ❤️ so today doesn't suck, and I will keep hustling on ✊🏻🦄
Are you allowing God to work significantly in your life? A lot of time we go through unnecessary struggle because we try to force God to fix our plans when really, he needs us to listen to His. ⠀
Prayer: Lord, when we feel far from you it is usually because we have allowed everything else to get in the way. Help us to seek you first. Speak so clearly into our lives that we have no choice but to obey you. Help us chunk deuce to everything that will distract us from who you want us to be. And help us make it look sexy. ⠀
