Dear Finals, Thank You; PAMSA: A Cultural Voyage of a Lifetime; Nothing Ever Ends

Dear Finals, Thank You I came back on the 12th of January. My first final exam was the 18th of January. My final final was on the 4th of the next month. The trip was awesome. Frankly, these 12 days were unforgettable. When I came back to Montreal, my first shock was to see that…

One of the Greatest Slaps in the Face

This blog entry was written on Friday 11th of January, 2013 : The end is nigh. My great moments in Salvador are almost over. I’m in a bus bringing me from the resort to San Salvador. It’s almost time to go back to the routine that’s been keeping me occupied for so many years. Escaping…

Tired of Looking at Old Photographs

People die everyday and that’s o.k.. But when people die irrelevantly, that’s not so o.k.. To die in such a way is dying due to mistakes and glitches. To avoid such deaths, worldwide healthcare systems have to improve. In this regional meeting, I wish to learn how to improve my own health system. What is learning?…

Une formation pas comme les autres (car les autres formations sont différentes), mais au Salvador

Aujourd’hui on est le 8 janvier (car hier on était le 7 janvier et demain on sera le 9). Ça fait déjà 8 jours (8 janvier – 31 décembre = 8 jours) que je suis dans le Salvador. Pourtant, ces derniers jours, dans le tout-inclut, je me sens tout simplement au bord du Pacifique. De…

Living in the Matrix

To start off, I would recommend the readers to read what is between parenthesis in slow motion in order to (feel) the Matrix. The pre-regional meeting started on the third of January (not one day late nor early, that’s quite fancy). It might sound funny, but I feel like in a computer, programmed by random creatures…

Fear And Loathing In El Salvador

January 4th in Salvador; Day 4 (kindoff… considering that the day changes at midnight and this entry is written relatively shortly after the change of day). Here’s my thoughts of day 2, January 2nd, written on day 4. One thing I’ve noticed in San Salvador was fear. Talking to some of the locals of the…

Le contraste ultime

Cette entrée a un rapport direct avec la dernière (parce que celle-ci est écrite peu de temps plus tard (relativement bien sûr)). La dernière entrée démontre un aspect négatif de la vie des habitants du Salvador. Est-ce vrai? Bien sûre! Mais… Il existe un autre monde dans le pays. En fait, avant de publier la dernière…

Real Magic In El Salvador

Plane ticket, 1000$; snack from Starbucks, 2.39$; seeing the sun rise 36 000 feet above the ground, probably priceless (if not, I’d say it’s worth around 2543.63$). Leaving Montreal is not always easy. Not because I’ll miss the city. But simply because I’m leaving what I consider a part of me. I believe that we are…

Une réponse à la question fondamentale de l’identité

Dans la vie de tous les jours (puisque la vie se déroule tous les jours), on se demande qui l’on est. Toute une question fondamentale! En fait, “It is not what I am underneath, it is what I do that defines me” (BATMAN, 2005). Donc, pour se découvrir, il faut faire. Mais comment est-ce qu’on…

A Very Very Serious Cover Letter

Greetings to all! The name’s George, Peter George (you could call me Peter. Why? It’s shorter to say). I’m born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, North America and most importantly, Earth which is something I probably have in common with everyone else. Here’s the story of my birth: my grandparents lived in Syria and Lebanon; 2…
