Well, I’m off. Ridiculously going on a weekend trip a week before finals. I feel like I’m not taking this med school thing seriously enough.
I have been ruminating about the fact that I will be spending a lot of time in various stations, depots, and ports this weekend, just waiting, and then I get a big-picture-crisis, thinking about how life is really just about waiting for this and waiting for that, and in the end it all averages out to pointlessness.
Which is why it’s not always good to look at the big picture (see The Restaurant at the End of the Universe by Douglas Adams for the dangers of having too much perspective….) But if you look at the little picture, then life is really about who you are waiting with, and how you decide to pass the time….
