|Peace, I'm out of here!|
I've always wanted to study aboard. This desire dates back to my undergrad days. I would walk to the underground area in The Union and see pamphlets and information about taking classes in Brazil, Spain, etc, and I never follow through with it. So I decided that I wouldn't let the opportunity pass me by in medical school.
As of late we've been getting plenty of information about medical mission trips that will be taking place during our breaks. I looked into one of the trips but it was so expensive that I didn't look any further. However, I feel that this was a mistake. Perhaps, I could have applied for traveling scholarships or something. If it's one thing that I am learning in school it's that there's always funding available somewhere. As such, funds or lack thereof shouldn't be a deterrent. Not unless they are asking for a deposit and you only have 24 hours to come up with the money, and even in that case you may find a miracle.
Nevertheless, I said I would for certain go on the trip next semester, God willing. I've never traveled outside of the US and it's something that I really want to do. So why should I deny myself the opportunity. I shouldn't, right? Right! or Verdad as I should say now that I'm taking Medical Spanish.
There are some amazing opportunities presented to my classmates and me and I should really take advantage so that I won't have the..."I wish I would have..." thoughts later down the line.
Are there any interesting things that you wish you would have done or now have the chance to do?
