i’ll be better when i’m older

February 7, 2009

my new goal is to become a neuro-oncologist in 8 years time. hopefully quicker if i pass all my exams at first go. this week we saw lots of newly diagnosed tumors, 1 of them a glioblastoma multimforme (GBM), which is the worst worst worst brain tumor you can ever get. the woman is 46 years old with 2 small children. i feel very saddened because she doesn’t know what’s happening and they are going to break the news to her on wednesday. if one day i ever luck out and discover the cure for GBM, it would be the most awesome thing EVER. even better than owning a balmain dress, and i do mean it.

and i just watched the curious case of benjamin button with sher, i think i just wasted three good hours of my life. it wasn’t a shoddy show but i didn’t really get the point of it. i did, however, like the dialogue. my favourites:

“we’re meant to lose the people we love. how else would we know how important they are to us?”

“i hope you are living a life you can be proud of. if not, i hope you have the strength to start all over again.”

xxx i know they are very “Awww”-inspiring quotes. i only take notice of phrases that tug at my heartstrings haha

ok i am off to bed. damn glad i survived the 46 degree heatwave today, i really think this weather is attrocious and highly unacceptable, seeing as i have no aircon!!!! tomorrow it will be heaps cooler and i am going for the st kilda festival 🙂
