Formal education tends to take the fun out of learning for me. But if not for that, I think I'd really enjoy studying Physics. Physics was my favorite subject in high school and I would have majored in it if I had chosen not to go the Pre-Med route. I probably would have tried to become a Physicist if I had not wanted to be a doctor.

I've been trying to study Physics as a hobby for awhile, but combined with what I would rather conceptualize as math anxiety than dyscalculia, I just wind up with "hobby world problems" and keep putting off reading that book or that article that I want to read until absolutely everybody I love has a perfect life and my house is so clean you can see your reflection in my toilet bowl.

Pretty much anything is going to cause the same problems while you're in school. In light of your major, "sleeping" is probably a hobby I should be pushing you to explore, but yea, reality sucks sometimes.

I hope you can squeeze in a bit of Physics into your day to day life and thank you for everything you are sacrificing to study Pre-Med.

You are very brave.

I'm actually almost done with medical school. I was talking about the past when discussing Pre-Med. Thank you for your encouraging words, although I think it's a bit of unfair praise to call me brave for pursuing medicine. All forms of necessary work should be praised and appreciated.
