Three Guiding Principles

For some, New Year’s Resolutions are goals we put out for ourselves to achieve. Lose weight, learn Spanish, etc etc. As a goal oriented person, I appreciate this, however I have found that I need more in life than to achieve goals. I have a desire to transform into a better version of myself, thus altering things about my personality or way of life in general. So for the past few years I have been working with guiding principles instead of goals or resolutions. I try to reflect on these principles every so often to ask myself “What did I do this week that aligned with these principles?” Or “How can I push myself to better exhibit these principles?” I’ve found it is far more ambiguous than a goal, and requires introspection and tweaking as you go along, and to try new practices and learn more about yourself. I change my principles whenever I feel that it is time- not on January 1st. Without further-a-do, here are the new principles I set out for myself this spring, while keeping in mind that I would be traveling.

1. A FOUNDATION

Foundation in daily practice of self care, self love, consciousness and gratitude.

Ways to do this: Exercise, meditation, positive affirmations– daily

2. LIFT UP

Inspire/encourage others to DO GOOD. Help them be the change.

Ways to do this: Spend time writing/share your journey, create practical guides? Something more concrete? Be supportive in general.

3. CONNECT

Take time to connect with others. Be light hearted and sincere in regards to relationships.

Ways to do this: Listen, be kind, be inquisitive, reach out, check in.

Why a Medblr??

I am 2nd year medical student. I love reading novels.I enjoy studying but I get distracted easily. I make plans but I don’t take actions.I can’t commit to my goals. I end up wasting time on cliche wattpad stories or netflix and feel guilty about it later. I am often panicking before the exams.But all this is needs to be changed. I am going to use this account to stay motivated and stick to my study schedule.I will keep posting my daily progress and plans. Lets hope I make it happen.

Ok! Here is my first ever attempt at Fan-art. I’m not ecstatic about how it turned out but I learned a lot and I have to continue to remind myself of a few things:

1. I haven’t taken any art classes in over 5 years. 

2. I haven’t attempted to draw anything in 3 years. 

3. I’m not an artist. And that’s fine! I don’t have to be!

4. Drawing realistic looking human beings is freakin hard. (props to all my amazing artist friends who make it look easy)

5. No amount of time or effort will ever capture the full beauty that is Captain Kathryn Janeway. 

So I tried my best. Again, I learned sooo much about how to draw different facial features and how to shade and how to make things look realistic. So I know her hair looks weird and her eyes are lopsided and the shading sucks but I’ll take this as a learning experience. 

I haven’t decided if I should keep going with the drawing or not…we’ll see. 

P.S. even though I know its not great (or even good) please don’t be rude, I’ll cry…this took me forever. OK goodbye!

есть у меня такая любовь - писать цели и resolutions в начале каждого года. почти из раза в раз я сильно переоцениваю свои возможности, надеюсь на потрясающие результаты и в конце декабря начинаю всё сначала. 

в этом, таком быстро бегущем 2019, я постаралась. заранее, несмотря на сложные дни на работе составила список, просмотрела его, обсудила с друзьями, пересмотрела ещё раз с чёрной ручкой и фламастерами и вошла в новый насыщенный уже с готовым чек-листом. и вот, бежит шестой месяц. честно говоря, никак не могу поверить, что секунды так летят. вот ещё пару минут назад мы сидели на кухне с Дашей, ели роллы и смотрели “Голубой Ургант”, а вот - валялись с Лёшей на диване и смотрели первую серию “Полового воспитания”, тут же - эмоциональные рабочие сложности и нестабильности весны. но на экране телфеона предательское 3 июня. промчалось время, улетело. возможно, это потому что это мой первый “учебный год” без учёбы? вот он, с сентября по июнь, незаполненный ни одной лекцией и конспектом (не считая тех, что я сама написываю себе в блокнот после просмотра видео и чтения книжек).

собственно к чему я всё это захотела написать. экватор же почти! осознав то, что почти половина позади я открыла свой блокнот с жирафом, где чёрной ручкой выведено почётное Resolutions и начала читать. 

пунктов немного, в этот раз я трезво оценивала силы и вдумчиво подходила к каждой букве, но несмотря на это и половина ещё не выполнена.

сектор “информация” хромает на обе ноги. из 70 книг прочитано 5. пять! каждой по месяц, хах. я знаю-знаю, что этот чёртовски прекрасный “источник” украл меня у библиотеки и заставил читать и перечитывать только его в течении почти трёх месяцев, так что к чему удивление в бровях? надеюсь, что к декабрю число дойдёт как минимум до 20. 

фильмы - смотрятся, список составлен, но отклонения часты. а с посещением культурных мест и мероприятий вообще глухо. на самом деле и цель не актуальна для моего сегодняшнего существования, но я её оставлю как напоминание о том, что надо ходить да смотреть. что до курса по кино(!) ох. мне кажется, в день когда я его закончу обязательно случится что-то невероятное… 

в “саморазвитии” местами неплохо - из 12 видео выпущено 6, публикацию фотографий я также возобновила, курс от “Евы” стараюсь не забрасывать. что совсем выпало из жизни, так это гитара, рисунок и языки. как только решу основные моменты в быту и поставлю на поток видео, вернусь и к этому.

в пункте “внешность и еда” итоги подводить катострофически сложно, потому что почти везде минусы. из-за того, что работа заканчивалась в 11, я фактически не могла ложиться раньше 10 и не есть после этого времени, любая активность опять же давалась тяжело из-за переутомляемости, и в скором времени я стала подзабивать и на потребление сахара, и на свою кожу, и на то, что в принципе я кладу в свой организм. с конца мая начала над этим работать. не выполнен challenge про месяц без чая/кофе!

“социальная интеграция” - в том, что касается общения и посещения новых мест, это определенно большой и жирненький плюс. но я не путешествовала, как хотелось! это надо менять.

и “другое”, куда свалено всё, что не разошлось по векторам. с трекером привычек не сошлось - в принципе очень хорошая и крутая вещь, но мне почему-то не далась, зато я нашла для себя хорошее приложение GridDairy. на него уходит больше времени, так как оно требует не просто закрасить квадратик, а ответить на вопросы, которые сам себе ставишь (или программа, тут уж по желанию), тем самым проверяя себя каждодневно по тем темам, которым нужно, ну и создавая воспоминания с отмечанием каких-то моментов. 

пункты, касающиеся внутреннего мироощущения и каких-то личных принципов, тоже потихоньку входят в жизнь. возможно, их тоже нужно занести в список вопросов в приложении, чтобы они быстрее закостенели во мне :)

из относительно больших и важных покупок осталась одна (тут прям я рада тому, что потихоньку приобрела то, что хотела), порядок на всех гаджетах планирую навести на этой неделе.

не самый плохой экватор, конечно, но очень много областей роста, которые надо прокачивать. на этой неделе следует постараться прояснить все неосознанные и не до конца понятые моменты, заполнить пустоты, доделать по максимуму старые дела по чек-листам и не забывать писать новые.

03.06.19

I haven’t really been posting here over the last few months, since I didn’t really feel motivated for my university classes and I didn’t have time to study languages in my free time. My year in London wasn’t really what I hoped it would be due to a combination of things. I don’t feel like I learned much this year and London, while there is lots of fun stuff to do, isn’t really a place I enjoy living long-term. It’s not a place where you make friends easily, and I did feel lonely at times. What didn’t help either was that I had to go home several times because of a family situation, so I feel like from January till April I’ve mostly been focussed on life back home. 

My exams are now finally over and I’m slowly starting to feel motivated again. Especially my love for languages has returned and I’ve made a list of my language goals for this summer as I’ve been doing over the past few years. I’ve recently started Korean and Faroese and I’m so excited about learning those languages!

I have a few weeks left in London before I move back to the Netherlands again and I’m going to try to visit some cool places to remind myself why the UK is such a cool country =D

I like real people, people who care to solve things, I like people who say: “ hey this is because of this and I feel this way, we need to work this out”. Maybe I do like them ‘cause I see in them some resolutions, I see safeness, I see no fear as my one, maybe I do envy the practicality and the strength to just go and take the first steps.

Semester Reflection

My apologies for being away for so long. I had a lot of personal stuff that I had to resolve and my life was a bit of a mess because of it. I also had finals going on and I had technical issues with my phone. However, now that everything is resolved, I can go back to writing this blog. 

Since this semester came to an end, it’s time for me to make my usual end of the semester reflection. This time, I will discuss not just academics but other aspects outside of academics when it comes to how my semester went. Keep in mind that the recruiting section will be specific to the finance industry. 

Recruiting 

I have a lot of regrets on this topic so this section is going to be a long one:

1.) I didn’t annoy enough people   

I don’t know how it is for other career paths but for finance, applying online simply doesn’t work. Your resume will more likely than not end up being thrown away into the garbage can. What works much better is directly annoying people in the companies where you want to work in until they either say “no” or give you what you want. I ended up getting my first internship this way. Then, I avoided this process as a junior because this process is 1.) sole crashing 2.) makes you feel horrible about yourself  3.) much more time consuming then simply applying online and 4.) there were way more job postings for juniors than for sophomores so I felt like I had an easier alternative. This was a serious mistake on my part. I ended up losing out on getting any offers from good companies that I wanted to get because I didn’t do this early enough in the process. I ended up using this method about a month ago (at the last minute) and am now seeing positive results but at less disable places. Had I done this step earlier, I probably would have had an offer that I truly wanted. 

New Semester Resolution: As awful as it makes me feel, reach out to at least 5 people/week. Do what you know works instead of doing what doesn’t work. 

2.) I didn’t do extra work outside of class 

I didn’t read enough news about the industry, didn’t read any business books, didn’t practice doing the technicals for interviews, etc… Basically, I didn’t do enough activities outside of class to show that I was actually passionate about banking/finance. 

A wake up call came when I asked my finance  professor for help with getting an internship. He asked me “what were the last 3 business books that you’ve read?”. To my embarrassment, I could not answer that question because I haven’t read any. After this moment, I started working really hard on fixing this situation. 

New Semester Resolution: Read deal/finance/economics related news every day, read at least 3 books a semester, and be ready to do the technicals at all times. 

3.) Following up with networking contacts 

I had done a lot of reaching out and talking to people during my sophomore year. However, I didn’t really put in the effort to follow up with those people. So what ended up happening is that I ended up doing my most hated activity, which I try to eliminate every chance I get: pointless work. 

New Semester Resolution: Follow up with people at least once every couple of month. Otherwise, you are just waisting your time. 

4.) I was not confident in myself 

This one I regret the most. I was not confident in myself. I felt like everyone in the room was better than me, smarter than me, prettier than me, had better GPA and working experience than me, etc…. And this low confidence/self esteem showed during interviews and networking events. 

It also prevented me for signing up for a lot of networking events and doing my best to go after what I truly wanted because I felt like I would not be good enough anyways so why even try. I even managed to say what I wanted to do with my life (IB or PE) only after my finance professor had asked me, “what specifically do you want to do?”

I answered, “I don’t know”. 

“You do know. You are probably just not confident enough to say it. And that’s a problem”, he said. 

After this (and a burning desire to prove one of my relatives wrong), I started putting a lot more effort into going after what I want. 

New Semester Resolution: Even if you are not confident, just pretend like you are. Fake it till you make it. 

Extra Curricular Activities 

1.) Nothing 

By nothing I don’t mean that there is nothing for me to improve on. I mean, I literally had done no extra curricular activities in the first half of this semester. 

In the second half of this semester, my finance professor recommended (well… more like forced me) to join one of the finance orgs on campus. I was unable to really get involved there because I joined too late. I felt really bad about this because everyone who joined at the beginning got a long with each other better, had more opportunities to do stock pitches and case competitions, etc… and I had to miss out on all of those opportunities because I was too late to the party. I felt excluded. I did, however, did my best to ask for every single opportunity available (which I feel very proud of myself) and I also attended every single meeting, which I hated attending (which I feel even more proud of myself). 

New Semester Resolution: Actually join this org at the beginning of the semester to have access to those opportunities and not feel left out. 

Academics 

There isn’t much for me to comment on this topic because, over all, I feel happy with how my academics went. 

1.) Spend more time studying for finals 

Due to having an interview in between finals, I haven’t put in enough effort when it comes to studying for finals. This had effected the scores that I have gotten on the exams. Luckily, because I had studied through out the semester, it hadn’t effected my score too much. 

New Semester Resolution: Start studying for finals earlier and don’t schedule interviews during finals. 

2.) If you don’t like a class, drop it

This semester, I started out with 5 classes. I ended up with 4. I dropped one of my classes because I just didn’t like the class. I’m really happy with this decision because even though I could have scored well in that class, that class wasn’t required and I felt like I saved myself a lot of time and energy this way. 

New Semester Resolution: If you don’t like a class, just drop it.

Passion

I feel like there is nothing I am really passionate about.

People are passionate about very different subjects: be it their fandoms or a sport they play or their career or whatever.
I feel like I’m not.

Yeah, there are certain things I enjoy over others but in the end ther’s nothing that I would “die for”. That makes me feel weird.

I generally enjoy the sport I do but I don’t mind missing a session. (In fact: I have missed several now but that is another topic.)
I kinda like knowing stuff about history but I only know a brief overview, not many detailded facts.
I would like to be more passionate about getting fit but I just can’t seem to keep up the change for longer than a few days at most.

I recently read a story about a girl my age who couldn’t bear to look at herself in the mirror and decided to change her life. I want to be as passionate about my choices as she is about hers. But then there are the moments when I just don’t care. Part of me will tell me not to go and buy that chocolate or whatever but it is as if the rest of my mind just goes: “Nah, you can thank us later when you are craving sweets!” and then I go and buy whatever.

It is like I wrote some time ago: I can’t keep up resolutions and I think part of that is because I am not truly passionate about them.

I would love to invest myself deeply into a topic but I think in the end my rational mind and my emotional mind agree that it isn’t worth it. Whatever that “it” might be.

I might have sudden ideas or plans at one point and begin investing myself in them but that is mostly late at night, when I’m about to sleep and I tell myself I’ll really do it this time but in the end (or the next morning) I am not motivated at all to follow through with what I planned because I’m too lazy; always looking for an excuse not to do the thing. I tell myself that if I was only passionate enough I could do the thing.

This leads me to something else:
Everyone always tells me to follow my heart but how can I follow my heart if I don’t know what it wants? There is nothing I am passionate about. At least that’s what it feels like. There’s nothing that means that much to me. (But on the other hand I’m very attached to certain things… my mind is weird and I’m trying to get it into some sort of readable thing…)


Idk.
I just wanted to do something down to calm me down from my anxiety attack and writing seems to work. Should remember that. Still… I feel like I should be passionate about something and know about that passion.

Lost


My hair tickles my chin, a breeze playfully sweeps it back and forth. The air is warm, but the breeze is cool. Blazing pink clouds contrast against baby blue skies, the color seeping into the rocks that dot the landscape. Piles of large rocks lying around me as though some giants were playing with them but never cleaned up. The rocky sculptures are skirted by prickly Joshua trees, and small cacti poke out along the desert floor. The pinks blend into reds the pale blues into dark horizons. With one last flash of color, the sun disappears, allowing the blues to blend with purple, and pale lights begin to dot the sky, getting brighter as the sky gets darker.

“They might ultimately decide not to express the Dopamine,” my professor lectures, and I bring my eyes back into focus. The starry night is replaced with the harsh white lights on the classroom circling, and the toy rocks are replaced with student dolls that sit inanimately as they listen to the lecture. It’s become too easy to get lost in my mind. At first, I used to have to close my eyes and concentrate, but now it’s become as easy as staring at doodles on my paper.

A tree doodle appears and is quickly replaced by a real tree. A tall sycamore towering over its neighboring trees. The sky is once again ablaze, this time a fire dancing among the clouds. A fresh green lawn blankets the foreground, extending to the trees that frame this gorgeous sunset. Wind chimes ring behind me and the familiar sound of an ambulance oscillates through the air. I am perched on the brick wall behind my house, a place that I mostly use to talk on the phone, but sometimes just for the pleasure of watching the sun go down. The rough brick scratches against my skin, reminding me I’ve been sitting here for an hour now and it’s time to get down.

“Where is Sofia? What did she do to get the money?” a different professor speaks up. This time I’m in a lilac box. The Classroom, they call it, and it’s the site of my Writing the Essay class in Goddard. It’s easier to be present in this class because we are often asked to get lost in our thoughts and those of others. But I still get lost in my own thoughts and lose sight of the class. I don’t really remember making my way to this classroom, but I’ve grown used to this as most Tuesdays tend to be the same.

The lilac walls fall and are replaced with a floor to ceiling window and a crowded room of people trying to order coffee. The room is noisy and with standing room only, the seat by the window is a safe haven. I watch as people walk by, they come in tides, each group a kaleidoscopic carnival. Since coming to NYU this has become one of my favorite places to come and write, a place where I can be alone but also surrounded by people. The added bonus of being at Starbucks cannot be overlooked, and as I sit at the window looking out to the park, I sip at a warm cup of coffee. What have I learned, I wonder. I’m not really sure I can answer in any tangible form.

While my first week of school seems like a decade ago, the summer days spent watching the sunsets seem to only have been a week ago. It’s almost as though I’ve merely been on vacation for the past few weeks, and my mind is still waiting to go back home and start school. Am I satisfied? No, not really. Do I have any regrets? No, not really. While waiting for college to begin, I imagined the adventure I would have, getting lost in the city and the friends I would make along the way. I couldn’t wait to see all the things I would learn. Instead, it seems that all I’ve learned is to get lost, and not in the city, but rather in my mind.

Resolutions are easier. They are actions you can name. My own resolutions often seem to be centered around tangible things. This year I’ll learn to do a push up (Circa: 2015, update: I still can’t do a push up). This year I’ll be vegetarian (Circa: 2014, this one was actually forced on me by my parents, update: I actually never liked meat so I lasted all year). This year I’ll get straight A’s (Circa: 2016, update: I hate math and it hates me). I went through many basic resolutions, but most I never took seriously. Yet, in the back of my mind there were always deeper resolutions that I wanted to pretend didn’t exist so that when they didn’t happen I wouldn’t be disappointed. This year I’ll make sure my parents don’t fight during the holidays (Circa: 2008, update: 2017 was the first of what I hope would be many holidays without a fight). This year I’ll be more confident (Circa: 2010, update: I’m still working on it). This year I’ll be happy (Circa: 2017, update: I have since learned that I should not make happiness be the goal, but rather the goal should be to allow myself to be happy). So this year I have a new resolution. This year I will allow myself to live and get lost in the adventure of life.
