food for the soul

so many thoughts i had in mind to pour into this blog but the previous days were that hectic even the wordpress app on my bb did no good. worked our ass off the final report, the presentation, and studied for the exam itself with the scary imagination of our examiner flying here and there… haunting us. we made it though. yesss, we passed the department as the best group. ha-ha, little pride won’t hurt anyone.

interesting lessons i got through rotation in this dept. public health. yep, i’m really sorry for those who might found this offensive but i was never fond of this subject. not that i’m not aware or concern about the painful facts of the real public health issue surrounding me… maybe i just don’t like the lectures. but i do care 🙂 especially after seeing the real life from home visit. do you have any idea there are still many people’s houses being just few centimetres away from the river’s edge? and voila, as we all can guess, flood invades their households whenever rainy season comes. and why that could happen? they act like river is a giant rubbish bin. read this jaw-dropping fact: there’s actually people who threw away a mattress into the river, yes, a mattress = bed! washing their minds off all of these is not that easy, it’s all back to the cycle of low income-low education-low awareness of their own health. *sigh

other lessons came from my very own preceptors. it’s plural, yup, there are 2 of them. call it coincidence or what, but both of them loved to teach us more of life lessons rather than academical lesson. they’re very inspirational, lucky me! got through this dept, i still don’t see myself working as the head of primary health care (puskesmas here) one day, but i made a promise to myself that i would do something for those kind of people. helpless people who really needs attention. eymen!

the thing occupied me last week was also the visit from my baby nephew! yippieee! it’s baby’s first days out of town. i realized that he grows that fast when my arms ached after carrying him. God, i love him so muchosss!!! i never get bored kissing his bapao-y cheek and staring into his crystal clear eyes. baby, i wish we live in the same city.

omg

i really forgot those things i’m about to write.

okay, why don’t i write about this. still in theme of inspiring people. today, i read someone’s blog and it really left me an admirable impression. it’s relieving to know that there’s still that kind of people exists, out of my worries. let’s say, hey you, got urself a secret admirer here!

here is some of the posting:

overall, the writer wrote about something with the right decision, path, and what you’re doing in life. he posted the steve jobs’ video as a reference. and i love what the writer wrote at the end of the post:

Because once we are settled, we are too lazy to think, our creativity is plugged, and finally we are reluctant to move forward.That is why I always remind myself never to get settled and leave the door open towards any possibilities.

Whenever you feel down, have doubt, or don’t know what to do with your life. Watch this video and see how inspiring people’s life is not easy. Sometimes they got hit by a brick in their head and they got bleed and bruises. But they managed to overcome it, picked theirself up, cleaned their wound, and moved on. They were fool enough to keep on going and have hunger to become better and better. So find what you love and have faith.

on sum of that, here’s my fav quote from my preceptor :

hidup itu gerak, kalau tidak gerak berarti tidak hidup (being alive is moving, if you’re not moving you’re not alive)

such a slapping yet life-changing quote for a lazy ass like me… hehhehe.
