Unlike a lot of my friends, I have a few close friends that I've made at this uni who aren't medics.
Mainly PhD students and part-time lecturers who I've met while working in the bar. I love it, I love the chance to breath and relax and do stupid stuff like play Munchkin, Ocean Trader and Killer Bunnies while drinking nice red wine and generally not feeling on edge.
I love being a medical student, but I don't think it should define my personality in a way it seems to do with some of my friends.
Sure, I'm training to be a doctor, but that doesn't mean I have to limit my friends to those in the same career path.
Sometimes you just need to take a step back and breath.
Tonight, I did that.
