Hello, friends. I’m so happy to announce that I’ve been accepted in radiology residency in the biggest referral hospital in the country starting next year! Even though I’m ecstatic about this, I realize that this is just the beginning of another journey. To be honest, I’m pretty nervous about it. Scared, even.

So, even though I learned the Flemish (indirect) painting technique in January, I decided I would ditch the method because it takes too much time to finish a single painting.

I’ve accepted the fact that I’m not an artist. Right now I’m studying to be accepted in radiology residency and it’s all I think about these days.
Perhaps in another lifetime, I would be an artist. In such case, I would work on my drawings for hours and hours until it’s perfect. Until then, I’m gonna stick with my main job.
