    Do you have any regrets that relate to choosing medicine?
    If you could go back and choose a different career path, would you?

    Everyone does, even if they are only fleeting. I've been in education for 22 years now, i just want it to be over already. Part of me wanted to be in the next stage of my life long before now (marriage, kids) and I wonder about how much of yourself you have to sacrifice and striking a balance.

    But I don't think I would choose anything else. I always would have looked at doctors with envy if I hadn't tried. Through intercalating and doing things outside uni I know I have skills in different areas, if push comes to shove and I hate it I will leave.

    Possibly. I still wonder if I will ever leave and become a pilot. Don't think I can make any decisions until I have worked for a few years, at least!

    Great view from your 'desk'!:

    Watching all my friends graduate this summer made me wonder what I could have done instead. I've not seriously contemplated doing any else yet though

    Yes, I would rather become a pilot, too, inasmuch as it keeps the astronaut dream alive.

    damn my slightly impaired left eye
