19- Interested in feminism, MENASA culture & politics (mainly Pakistan, Palestine, Oman), Islam and science. There's more to learn than can ever be learnt, and I've only just begun. Also, I hate capitalism, Zionism, dictators, eurocentrism and gender roles, and I won't tolerate their apologists. La lucha sigue...

I’m all about the medical student aesthetic tbh
I found some of the “notes”/study guides I drew for the Anatomy class I took three or four years ago. Maybe these diagrams can be useful to someone else!
Most of the drawings are labeled with directionals — A/P for Anterior and Posterior, R/C for Rostral/Caudal, and I/S for Inferior/Superior. Circle with the dot means coming toward you, circle with the x means going away from you.
The Burning Monk- Thich Quang Duc (1963) sat down in meditation position at Saigon. He then poured gasoline all over his body and set himself alight. He maintained his calm meditative position and did not even make a sound while his body burned and then within a few minutes toppled over. His body was consumed but his heart remained intact. It was placed in the Reserve Bank of Vietnam and is called the Symbol Of The Holy Heart.
He wanted to show people that we can do incredible things when we practice mindfulness. He also wanted to show the world the injustice that was being perpetrated on the Buddhist religion and community by a repressive regime. Needless to say, it worked pretty well and the government softened up on the Buddhist. He is a remarkable symbol of the incredible power the mind holds.
It’s important to say that he did this in response to an oppressive regime originally supported by the US. Ngo Dinh Diem (“President” of South Vietnam) was a catholic who was supported for his strong anti-communist stance. His election was rigged. He was later killed in a coup.
