What I Want To Be When I Grow Up
I just realized I've never blogged about what made me decide I wanted to be a doctor (and then later I decided I didn't for unrelated reasons). When I was a kid, along with other ambitions like being a whale trainer, I had dreams of being an epidemiologist and living in Africa tracking my favorite virus. I even wrote about it all the time. Heck, in high school I had to give a presentation on a microbe and I did ebola. Everyone in class had a freaked out look on their face but I went on to say that I wanted to study it, heh. They thought I was a freak.
Yes, while most were dreaming of being actors or models and such, I was dreaming of trekking through the jungle studying a hemorrhagic virus that makes people's intestines liquefy. YAY!
So, ebola is the best virus ever and there are idiots trying to eradicate it. Tsk.
