The universe gives us opportunities to learn from other experts in the field. Unfortunately I was not able to stay for this talk, but certainly there is lots to discover in the world of Physiotherapy that I have always wanted to complement with the practice of TCM and Psychology. 
The health industry excites me. I can’t wait to see what more the universe provides through this journey.

Get enough work experience

The best decision I have made for myself was to become a working student. While many might see this as quite troublesome to manage, I can tell you this: after four years of balancing the two, growing in my career has been truly rewarding. Here’s why:

1. Classroom discussions come to life when you have notable experience. Getting exposed to all kinds of people on a daily basis makes for good stories and diagnosis. It also helps you incorporate what you have learned with real life experiences. 

2. Both aspects begin to merge naturally. I first worked as a writer for the web and could not imagine what kind of jobs would be available to me. As I grew in theory and knowledge, this helped define the kinds of job settings I would seek. Moving through the world of web technology kept me up to speed and helped provide insight into management, marketing, and sales which we aren’t normally provided with in the sciences. 

3. You can afford things on your own. Being a full-time student is great, but enjoying your own keep to be a good student is even better. Dictating where to allocate your own budgets and being smart about your own finances teaches you quite a lot about survival and makes your goal-setting realistic. Some people think of further education as a great excuse to ask for a larger salary, and rightfully so. But working your way up simultaneously makes it more meaningful to your career growth.

4. You build a significant and influential network. The school setting is great for support groups and starting somewhere. But the reason why you grow exponentially in the work setting is also because you learn how to strike deals with other people and soon seek out the expertise of others in the same industry. It gives you the big picture so to speak and helps you see what is really out there. It also helps you market yourself to key people in the industry. 

5. You learn to trust yourself more and stand by your own convictions. I know, that sounds so highfaluting. But when you merge the two areas, you realize that you are unique in both settings, getting the “best” of both worlds. 

There’s something wonderful about traveling light. Life is just so much better that way. There’s also something more freeing about being picky and attracting the very things that will enrich me. 
Life is wonderful. ;)

Still one of my favorite shirt designs to date. Also one of the my favorite projects to date. Everything about that whole experience brings back so many GREAT memories. It was through this experience wherein I found what I too valued most and would like to have in any setting I find myself in.

All things considered, would you rather have more passion or comfort in a relationship?

When you step into grad school they say that you have to have the end in mind. You need to know what you’re going to produce, and you need to love it every day. 
Most days are going to be quite shitty, but on those days when you’re really overwhelmed, you need to look back on why you started and rekindle the love that you have for it on your own. You need to look out into the world and remind yourself what it is that pains you about it and how you’re willing to make a difference. 
This very phrase by Fr. Arrupe captures it for me again and again. When you’re passionate about something, when you’re truly madly deeply inl ove with it, this will dictate EVERYTHING. 
So fall in love and STAY in love. You’ll be surprised how passion can drive you straight home to MANY dreams.
