twenty days after the first entry, and that one was not even finished cos someone needed the computer urgently. not a very good start. but who cares...
yesterday i read a newspaper article about a mother of two who jumped off a tall building with her daughters because she found out she had cancer. the photograph was cropped to show only a patch of grass, her right arm and the left arm of one daughter (the other was on her other side), with a piece of red string linking their wrists. it gave me nightmares.
today i found that there is only one purpose to attending medical school: to pass the final exam. nevermind that what they teach won't be of use once you graduate and become a doctor. there is only one goal; let's hear that again: to pass the final exam.
i have intellectual, moral and emotional objections to this piece of wisdom. the first two have been neutralised.
