...what happens when the least expected stuff happens.
The events in this last week has shaken my core and made me look at life differently. Last Monday I fainted at work, hit my head quite badly on the concrete floor, and was taken to the hospital. Upon examining my skull, brain and spinal cord for injury, the doctors found a tumour, at the back of my head.
I am now diagnosed with meningioma, a brain tumour that grows from the cells of the meningeal layers that surround the brain. My surgery is scheduled for this November. This whole situation is so ironic, it's almost funny. When I was studying at uni the topic I chose for my project was to work with human brains, since I think brains are the best thing to ever happen to humans. And in all the structures of the brain, the structures I loved the most was the meninges and the choroid plexus, due to their beauty and understated importance. To actually have a tumour growing right in the area I am so passionate about just hits me in the head, hard.
Regardless, I am looking at this whole situation positively. This whole event has made me look at life differently, and has made me want to change to be a better, more understanding, kinder person. There are much more important things in life than materialistic needs. There are a breath of experiences I can now experience if I were to just smile more, understand more, and be open more. I want to live more. I want to live the best as I can everyday.
And in living more, I am drawing more too. I drew a lot during my one-week long hospital stay (most of them incomprehensible scribbles XD), I might post them on my sketch tumblr!
I want to draw some Sasuke stuff too, we'll see. But first I need to catch up on the Naruto chapters I missed XD
