Five?? You're a glutton for pain aren't ya! Hmmm you sound like the car in the muppet movie (I'm watching that right now). Don't think it's true for everyone but watch this space I could become arrogant in med school...
It can be interesting yeah. I think in the same sense as medicine when you get down to the nitty gritty of what happens to one person and the response to it; it's the same thing, just in one the medium of change and effect is the word and paper and sentence and the other it is biology and chemistry and the human body.
I like the second part of your post. I wonder if it's entirely true though No need to be modest on here, don't ruin the brilliant medics' reputation for arrogance now. You're a very very clever woman and if someone makes you go boing i doubt many people at all could still be whirring.
You should hear me when i stop for a moment, look at whats going on and 5 minutes later with no movement or conscious through in between....."brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr scccchhhkkkkkscrccc......tck".
Kinda like now with 5 a levels, one of which i havent been to a single lesson for, and mocks for all of em in the next month/two
