Looking Around

Because I have the attention span of a gnat Because I am highly interested in people watching, I spend a lot of my time at school looking around and watching the people in my class.

I realize that this might sound creepy, but I promise it isn't. Or it isn't supposed to be.

But as I sit and look around at my classmates, it occurs to me that in just a few short years, these people will be physicians. Who are supposed to make decisions. And deal with patients.

And there are a lot of people that I have no trouble picturing in that type of role - caring for patients, meeting with families, making decisions. But then there are the 'other' ones...


There are some people that I simply can't picture walking into a room as a physician. Let alone doing any of that other doctor-type stuff.

And then I realize that in just a few short years someone is going to want me to do that doctor-type stuff.

Double Yikes.

You'll be a great doctor. I meet physicians all the time that I wonder "WHY?" did they become a doctor, why???
