How does it feel being a nii-chan? Do you feel like this is the relationship you want with your students, like Iruka/Kakashi and Naruto?
Good luck today!
A few people recommended me Code Geass, did ya watch it?
That's great to hear, then come over to the thread and discuss it with us
Nope I watched the first two eps and kinda lost interest after that. How would you rate it?
Never watched Gintama but that's just because most of the japanese comedy series are just not funny enough, at least for me. And to be honest, I prefer series where the plot moves forward regularly, episodic events are not really my thing.
Do you really think women are more eager? XD I think studying is a very important thing nowadays, nearly every one wants to do it.
well it's not your fault, sometimes you can't prevent dropping a clanger. Still I'm sure you did a good job!
And I really got the impression that your philantropic, that's why I can't believe you're not XD No matter what you say, I'm sure you will be a caring and kind doctor.
Btw, why did you choose to study medicine? If it's because you wanted to help people, there's no way you aren't philantropic
Not really, both have their strengths and weaknesses. Both are very enjoyable, if done good. Here's my reading list: http://myanimelist.net/mangalist/Naruto-niichan
*stares at the word "Code Geass"*
And at high school, I have to say yes. At high school, more women seemed to be eager to study. There were some boys too, of course, but compared to girls they still lost the ration. XD But in general I agree; education is something important and I'm sure lots of people realize it, regardless of the gender. The problem is the will from each person. ^^"
And thanks for that! Guess I really need it. XD Haha, yeah, sure, I take medicine because I'd like to help people. I also like biology. Thus, combined. But thinking about it deeper, I didn't really have another choice. My other interests were music and language. Those two things could actually be studied outside formal education, so it'd be a waste to take majors in it, or so my parents said. They had their points. And I'm not interested in fields like economy, management, or engineering. ^^"
maybe you're right, boys don't like to study that much and their will isn't as great as womens (at least most of the time). My will is not that strong either but fortunately I found something I enjoy.
Yup biology is very interesting, I would have thought about becoming a doctor too if I hadn't been that lazy :/
so you definitely are philantropic how long will it take until you become a doc?
So your parents had an impact on your decision? Do you regret choosing it as your major or are you happy with your decision? Sorry for all the questions, I'm a very curious person
then we feel the same, I was never interested in any of those. I prefer working with people, not numbers.
Talking about wills, mine might not be as strong as what people thought too. As I described from my first post, the background of my choice was not entirely, completely, wholeheartedly because I like this field. Sure, I do have a certain liking to this major, but I can't say that I'm deeply in love with it. I guess that's one of my weaknesses. And I get lazy easily. XD
(No idea about your name, so lol. XD)
To become a general doctor, it takes around five years. For specialization, I think it takes at least three more years. Still a long way to go for me. Technically speaking, if you want to 'exist' in the world of medicine, you need to have a specialization. But specialization costs a lot. And by a lot, I really mean a lot. So that's why there aren't many specialists here.
Ahaha~ My only concern is that this is actually your thread, so it's kinda strange for you to ask it to me. XD But I'll answer. I'm not unhappy with this decision. This major is hard; very hard that sometimes I feel like I had made the wrong choice. Sometimes I feel like I'm not gonna be able to finish this. But then I look at those around me; friends, seniors, and families; they could all do that despite the crazy, hard, winding road they had. So I'm trying to put my whole heart into this medicine. Not that I dislike this major, but I still can't bring myself to say "I completely love this major" because sometimes I still feel discouraged.
(Sorry for the long rant. )
What about you? Have you ever felt like you had made the wrong decision? What would you do when you are in such situation?
Nope, I'm a lone child, unfortunately. What about you?
Give Good Ending a try. You like romance, seeing as how you like Kimi no Todoke, and GE in my opinion is more realistic than Kimi (I love both manga though).
It is nice to be viewed as a brother though. Students are more relaxed with you and more easily go to you for help if they need it. May I ask why they view you as that?
that really is a long time, especially considering the specialization O_o It takes five years to become an educator too but 8 years sounds very hard.
Are you in your first year? And did you already decide on a specialization? Or don't you want to do any because of the money? Is it really that hard without a specialization? (too much questions popping up in my head XD)
Aww you really are a kind/sweet person x3 (there's no way you are a narrow-minded, evil person XD) I really like your resolution, that despite the hardship you're trying your best because you thought of other people with the same or even greater difficulties. I knew it, there's no way you are not philanthropic, otherwise you wouldn't even think that way
Still that really sounds hard, I wish you the best for the coming years and that the day comes when you will be able to say that you love this major!
ah, I remembered something I was quite curious about some days ago XD how did ya become a mod for the noblesse secion(so fast )? To be honest, I'm playing with the thought of becoming a mod
Thanks for the advice! I will try it after I've read Blade of the Immortal up to the current chapters.
Yup that's true, that's why I'm happy about it. Well the kids told me that they can always rely on me when they need help or when they're feeling bad, that they can talk to me when there's something bothering them. My superiors told me the kids noticed that I'm a very caring person. If you ask me, it's a mix of a lot of different trivia but the most important thing is that you are honestly interested in the kid as a person. Still there are kids you kinda dislike and who kinda dislike you, so it's not something you can accomplish with everyone.

How do you treat the kids that you dislike and how do the kids that dislike you treat you?
Personally speaking, I despise orientation periods here in my country. The seniors bully the juniors too much; sometimes up to the point of physical contact. There was even a case when one of the newbies died because of excessive physical 'training'. Yeah, died. Disgusting. Now people give more attention to cases like this so the school and seniors can't do something too much. Still, an orientation period would always have this part where seniors shouting and bullying and acting like some kings/queens talking to the stupid servants. What's the point? They have walked too far from the word 'orientation' itself. ..I think I better stop here or I can continue ranting about how stupid these orientation periods are. I hope such things don't happened at your place. ^^
I've just finished my first year. Specialization, not yet. When I was on high school, I found out about a specialization called 'chiropractic', about backbones. I'm actually interested since there are not many doctors with that specializations at Indonesia. But it must be hard as well, for not having too many people interested in it. XD Aside from that one, my parents suggested specialization in internal organs, like my uncle. It's actually interesting as well. Both must be hard. I'll leave it later on to decide. XD My parents would love to have me take my specialization later on, but I'm thinking to work a bit after I graduated as a general doctor. Well... at least try to gather some more money before continuing my education. It's just crazy. XD And it actually depends on where and how you work. At remote places, I think general doctors are more needed. Good general doctors can get lots of patients as well. :3
I wonder if you're going to take some kind of specialization as an educator as well? Does such thing possible? XD
Your story is similar to my parents, should I say. My mom dropped school because she wasn't interested enough and not allowed to go to another city to continue her education. And she said she regretted it now. Over here it's hard to find a work somewhere without proper education, unless you want to start your own business. So if my mom was there when you wanted to drop school, she'd lecture you till death, I believe. XD But you had made the choice and all you can do is to keep moving forward.
I wonder if you want to get 'Abitur', do you have to join a special class with lessons like in secondary school, or by paying teachers as you said you're going to have some kind of home schooling and then join the exam somewhere?
I've only watched the first season of CG, haven't or never got to try the 2nd season.
But it's good, that I'm sure.
I can't help but click your manga list and noticed you read "Alive" and rate it 9
What is your favorite thing about Alive?
It's one of those manga that is amazing but people don't read those much.
You watched CG's first season and not tempted to continue? The ending of the first season is just... O.o
Hi Narutard, haven't seen you a lot in Narutard heaven lately...
Narutards need to stick together man!
The first days at school were quite busy but I managed to watch 3-4 eps per day because the show was really intriguing, thank you very much for recommending it
I will answer anything else later on, now I'm going to watch Season 2 because I can't wait to see what actually happened at the end of season 1.
Just ignore my fangasmbut this show is SO MUCH WIN!!

still a third planned season without Lelouch will be... odd o__o
thanks for your advice, I wasn't that excited about an anime since long ago!
That sounds very hard O____O looks like things really went out of control at your school, it sounds like the juniors were (are?) some kind of inferiors
I'm sure that it was a huge shock when one of them died, I can't believe how stupid some people are.... What happened to the seniors who were responsible for him?
Now I'm kinda happy that something like this didn't happen at the schools I visited, we were never treated like servants. Only bad thing I remember is the seniors pushing back the juniors when they wanted to buy something from our old kiosk (there was a serious inrush every break).
We had another orientation period this year but it was just breakfast with a class one year above us, so it actually was a good experience. Not that we learned anything grave but it was enjoyable.
Just send me a PM, I don't have a facebook acount (yeah, really XD)
Now I wonder even more what's your name, phio is a rather unusual nickname (at least over here)
I heard about chiropractic, it definitely sounds like an interesting specialization. Still whatever you may choose, I'm sure it will be a good choice
Working after graduation sounds fine, I'm planning to do the same. Who knows, maybe you will be happy with being a general doctor. Do you want to live at a more remote place?
It's called evening school here, that's where you are able to get your "Abitur" if you didn't made it at a regular school. You have to pay the teachers and attend to lessons + there will be different exams from time to time. Still you have to do a lot at home so it's not that easy.
It's good to see another fellow "Alive" fan
I thought the setting was very interesting, if I would have to pick a favourite thing, it would be the characters. It was interesting to see that most of the villains were not portrayed as being absolutely evil but were fighting for their own (partly understandable) reasons. The art progression was amazing as well.
I promise to come back there sometime soon!
Yeah, third season without Lulu would be lonely. Still, I guess I'll check it out. No more news about it, though, I think? :O
Okay, I'll PM you, hohoho~ :3 My name is even unusual here in my place. I guess. XD
Haha, probably. I'm not really setting myself that I must go into specialization no matter what. I'll see again once I've arrived there. Still a long way to go. At remote places, I'm not sure. I think I'm used to the modern life that maybe I'd find quiet life in remote places painful. But that's still a subject to change.
LOL, specializations are expensive everywhere, hahaha~ XDD
I see. I'm not sure if we have something like that over here, though maybe it's just that I don't know if it exists (which reminds me that it's a Devil's Proof and reminds me of Umineko, lol). Maybe it's similar to home schooling, where you pay for teachers to come to your house so you can have classes like in school. But I think home schooling is more lenient in terms of time management. I think they still have to do exams. Well, of course. XD
