In a raw, honest confession that has sent shockwaves in the immediate vicinity of Merlo’s at 9.30am this morning, a local med student has taken unprecedented steps in the realm of courage and bravery by describing loudly just ‘how hard it is.’
Sara McKenzie (23), a budding endocrinologist and self-described ‘fangirl’ of BoJack Horseman, is not normally known to be so brutally honest. In fact, as she always tells her friends after what has to be at most like, three wines, she ‘keeps it really bottled up, you guys.’
But this gutsy little trooper with a Medal of Honour in ‘not complaining’ can’t hold it in any longer. Sipping on a flat white, and contemplating a studious day ahead, something in Sara’s mind simply snapped.
Suddenly, a Doctor of Medicine was not merely a degree. It was not merely a set of courses and rotations that would give one the requisite skills and knowledge to practice medicine.
This humble degree became, at least in the words of Sara, a titan more frightening than a Mitchell Johnson thunderbolt at 150km/hr, and more difficult to resolve than the racial tensions at the heart of this great southern land.
This humble degree was now ‘fucking unbearable,’ ‘impossible,’ and ‘so much harder than anything else you guys study, no offence.’
Whilst her pained confession was ostensibly only intended for the ears of immediate friends, the loud statements travelled to neighbouring tables, until the entire establishment was placed in a position of simply having to listen to the trials and tribulations of one woman going through something that thousands have done before.
Truly unbelievable scenes. But at the end of the day, fair enough. How easy is Arts, am I right?
No more to come on this definitely not bitter, cynical joke.
