Courage is something we all possess, but no one really knows we have it until the moment arises. Just like Richard Wright in "Fighting Words" , he had the courage to pursue his dreams even if everything seemed to be against him. I have also experienced something quite similar. Ever since I could remember my father has been my inspiration, my rock, and he has given me the courage to pursue challenges that seemed at first impossible to reach. This incredible man has encouraged me to pursue everything that I desire, even when everyone and everything seemed to go against me, and because of that I have prevailed every step of the way.

Most people say life is extremely valuable and every day is a gift. Personally, I did not believe life was very valuable until I was medicated. With my mental illnesses every day of my life is a struggle, and I have to take medications to have normal brain functions like most people. Before I started taking Zoloft I thought it would be a magic pill that would immediately cure me and make me happy. The first few weeks I honestly thought I was dying, but I believed my doctors when they said the benefits would outweigh the side effects. After years of struggling with depression and anxiety I started believing I was functioning like a real human should.
Steve Jobs, in his speech , ¨You've got to find what you love¨, implies that we have a limited time to live, so don't waste it living in dogma. He supports his claim by telling four stories of his experiences. The first story being about connecting the dots in (his) life. Then in the second story, he speaks about love and loss of his passion. In the third story he brings up death, and how it kept him motivated to do what he loves. In the fourth, and final, story he concludes his speech with a quote that convinces his audience that there are many different ways to go about life. His advice is to find your passion and to live your life doing what you love.
Thomas Jefferson wrote, ''Determine never to be idle...It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing.” In this quote Jefferson perfectly sums up life. Life and time should not be wasted by inactivity but instead should be spent with/on productivity. The purpose of life is to live and to be industrious. By constantly being active a person can accomplish many tasks and possibly goals. Being industrious and productive leads to performing well in life. Life has a time limit and therefore one should not waste it by being idle or unproductive.
Have you ever missed a loved one or just the memories with that person? Well if so, you have most likely heard the quote, “A life is not important except in the impact it has on other
Trascendentalism was started way back in the year 1807. Trascendentalism was a movement started as a club of people. They accept ideas of life but not as religious beliefs but as a way of understanding life. One of the people who was a strong believer of transcendentalism was Thoreau. He believed in living simply just like modern days Lenard skynard.
The fast-changing pace of Internal Medicine appeals to me as a strong critical thinker. I enjoy the challenge of incorporating all spectrums of medicine into each differential diagnosis; every case is a new problem-solving opportunity. Internal Medicine, more than any other specialty, utilizes my personal knowledge, experience, and the assistance of my team in an all-encompassing analysis with the most up-to-date information for personalized care with each and every patient. Only with true understanding and a personal bond with a patient can one practice preventive medicine, which is a priority in all medicine, but especially important for Internal Medicine, where motivating lifestyle change is crucial. Internists, to me, are lifelong learners, which is why I feel the strongest connection toward the concentration of Internal Medicine. In addition to the broad spectrum of disorders considered

For the past 18 years I wanted to do something practical and respected. Belonging to the model minority emphasized that belief even more. Due to those factors, I wanted to be an otolaryngologist specializing in laryngology. I thought this way I could get somewhat close to my passion of singing while raking in the prestige and cash. So then I decided to apply to schools with strong pre-med programs, but I also kept in mind my love for music, resulting in me applying to numerous liberal arts colleges. Of the schools I was accepted to, I decided to attend Franklin & Marshall College.
The physician should look upon the patient as a besieged city and try to rescue him with every means that art and science place at his command (Alexander of Tralles). My decision to enter internal medicine as the next part of my venue responds to several driving forces. Besides deciphering the wonders of the human body, I know how important is to deal with the prevention, diseases detection, and treatment of adult illnesses. Many disease might undergo undifferentiated which requires additional research and more complex health assessments. Moreover, patients managed by internists are often more seriously ill or present multi-systemic disease processes.
From the beginning of my nursing endeavors, I knew that working at Broward Health will be my goal. My work towards it wasn’t easy, but I hope that this healthy challenge will be rewarded one day. Whenever I could, I choose to have my clinical rotations at one of Broward Health System hospitals. My first three clinical rotations were on oncology floor at Broward Health, where I was exposed to patients with various and serious conditions. Despite the fact that most of these patients were suffering, they fought and had hopes in them that really made me going. My clinical rotations were not only interesting, but gave me necessary experience and strength to get through my nursing school. I’ve learned to be present in the moment for patient’s emotional
Throughout the history, there have been heated discussions on what constitutes a good life. Philosophers have given different annotations on the meaning of good life based on their beliefs, perspectives or even scientific-based evidences. Some view a good life as an accumulation of material goods that brings “large amount” of pleasure to oneself. On the other hand, Mencius and Aristotle advocate good life as possessing of pleasure that incorporates ethical values and they believe that by doing so one will experience enduring happiness. There is no ultimate right or wrong for these interpretations since this is not a factual question. Therefore, rather than giving an accurate definition of a good life, this essay will focus on expressing my
Investing my time in the care of my patient gives the opportunity to not only assist them in a difficult situation, but also to learn more about their diagnosis and the treatment, while comparing it to what we have learned in class. For example, I had a patient that suffered from Sickle Cell Disease and came to the ER during a crisis. Correlating this case to the books and the content learned in class, these patients receive at least 1000 mL of fluids, pain medication, and oxygen. Additionally, I had a patient with meningitis. This individual presented with common symptoms such as nuchal rigidity, muscle pain, fever, and chills. The doctor performed a lumbar puncture exam and the cerebrospinal fluid was in the cloudy range of the spectrum. According to the medical staff present at the time, this fluid is supposed to be much clear than what it was at the time of the test. Asking questions to my preceptor is another action I take in order to achieve my goals and problem-solve my obstacles. Additionally, I assist in different cases throughout the ER. For example, when a new patients come or when patients are deteriorating, the available nurses go into the room and help the other nurse. In these situations, I go and help as well and gain experience on the procedure to follow in
