Dear Bloggy Friends: everyone has their embarrassing truth – sometimes more than one. One of my embarrassing realities is (WAS!) that I do not have a driver’s license. In my final year of high school, when I was old enough to test, I thought I was “too busy”. And I was pretty busy with all of the things I had on my plate (because every Matric intent on medical admission believes they must fill every hour of their day with activity). If only I knew university would be much, much busier (DUH).
BUT NOW I CAN DRIVE!
I have to say that it may well have been the hardest test I’ve ever done. And I know people will roll their eyes at that, but seriously. Okay, maybe the anaesthetics practical assessment was more difficult, but the machine check did prepare me for the pre-trip vehicle inspection.
So here’s how not to become a fifth year medical student who can’t drive: JUST. DO. IT.
If high school and debate team and sports and olympiads are keeping you to busy to learn to drive, then you are TOO busy.
That is all. (And one more thingy off my 25 Before 25 to-do list.)
