Clichés and opinions

IMG_0308.PNG

In a matter of months I’m going to have to sit down in front of some extremely scary, important and intimidating people in order to prove myself. I’ll have to show them just how brilliant I am (or pretend to be anyway) and why I would be the most perfect doctor in the whole world (or a pretty good one anyway). They’ll ask about my interests, my opinions on current health matters, and how quick I can be at problem solving. And that might sound easy – just be who you really are – but it’s never that simple.

These people are going to want certain answers – because who wants a murderous doctor? But they will also want me to think for myself, to give original opinions, to be myself. Now you see why it’s going to be hard?

So my dilemma; how on earth am I ever going to prepare for these dreaded medical school interviews?!

So my opinion on assisted suicide. I truly believe that assisted suicide should be allowed. How is it fair to stop those who want to die, who are suffering of a terminal illness (and are going to die anyway), from dying? There will be some people who say that life is not ours to take, but we are the ones having to live it, so why shouldn’t it be up to us? I know that this is a touchy subject, but if we don’t start to talk about it, then things are never going to change.

Convincing enough?

Well, that was just me, being me. Hopefully that’ll be enough, because I don’t think I’ll be able to pull anything else off along with all the nerves on the day. And then again, I wouldn’t want to put on too much of a show like some medical school candidates. The interviewers would find out in the end.

So my plan is to just be myself. Cliche? Definitely. But do I care? No.
