Sitting on the couch watching college football this past Saturday after a LONG morning and afternoon of studying I found myself explaining to my husband what I felt were the strengths and weaknesses of each team’s…..uniforms. I had details about what colors looked best, what patterns were a big mistake, and what I would have done differently. I quickly declared that this was what I should do……if medical school doesn’t pan out. Kendal, being a good sport, chuckled at my observations and quickly pointed out that:
1: I would NEVER give up on something I had worked this hard for (I often refuse to even give up on things that I haven’t worked overly hard on just because I am that stubborn) and
2: In all reality this is probably just one more thing I will find a way to do IN ADDITION TO a medical practice
He’s right (on both accounts). Medical school has proven to be very trying and very disheartening at times, but no matter how hard it gets or how much I feel like I can’t take it any more, this is what I am MOST passionate about. I appreciated that little reminder this weekend and it has helped bring about a more driven focus on all the fabulous material needing to be digested before the tests that are coming up in just TWO weeks…… :D.
Random sidenote – some of my other “back-up plans” include:
- Professional chef (even though I would spend most of my time “sampling” all the food I was making),
- Interior designer (although the fact I can only draw stick figures might prohibit this),
- Ballet dancer (this one I would seriously LOVE and do someday hope to at least teach part time), or
- Successful business woman (no idea how to run a business but I like the idea of having an office – to decorate – and dressing up every day 🙂 ).
