A Short Trip to Lindås Lock (Lindåsslusene)

At first, I couldn’t understand the concept of a sea lock. I thought it’s just gates and that the purpose is to controll the boat traffic. 😛 Good thing someone explained it to me and thanks to Wikipedia I now know that a lock helps boats to pass and navigate a canal or a river…

Another Achievement Unlocked

My close friends and family know that I have an irrational fear for the sea/waters. I cannot deny that my fear is stopping me from trying out fun activities and I hate that I’m missing so much of life because of my angst. This is one of the battles that I’m fighting, but I found…

A Beautiful Winter Day

Because of the current pandemic situation (high number of Covid-19 cases, again!), I’m studying from home again. Lectures, meetings and the seminars are online again. However, there are exceptions to the strict measures which are simulations and practical exercise such as the CPR for instance. Those cannot be done on Zoom or Skype. I am…

What Matters Really

Two weeks ago, I went for a short trip (walk) at Den Trondhjemske postvei near my place. This nice place is actually the old road that connects Bergen and Trondheim. The old road was constructed in the late 1700’s as the demand for an effective way to send/deliver goods and mail increased. During that time,…

My Autumn Musings

It is that time of the year where everyday is gray and wet. The time that the mist takes over some of the early mornings. However, autumn is beautiful (because of its colours) just like the other seasons despite the fact that it is also depicted as something sad and is always a symbol of…

A Short Trip To Rex Garden

Stress has taken a toll on me these past few months. Physically, I got migranes and low energy. Mentally, I got depressed because of the situation we are in. Despite the effort to exercise and eat healthy, I felt that nothing is working. Good thing I have friends who motivate me to take a break…

Finished Strong

Another school year has ended. Now it’s officially summer for me. Well, at least I have summer break from school now. Still a reason to be happy because I finally have more time to my family and myself. I never thought in the beginning that I would survive this school year because of some personal…

Radiotheraphy Clinicals

Time flies, indeed when you love what you’re doing. My radiation theraphy (radiotheraphy) clinical has already come to an end and there are still lots of stuff to learn and master. Three weeks in the department is not enough. I’m sure going to miss the patients, the staffs and the linac (linear accelerator) machine. However,…
