Doctor Strop: After by stroppy-mchorseguy Doctor Strop: After by stroppy-mchorseguy
This is me at the end of my General Medicine rotation, which actually ended back in March or so. I didn't get much drawing done in the next rotation, General Surgery, because I was in the country and the hours were kinda long (though I'm not complaining, because while the interns might work 110-120 hour fortnights, the registrars probably did 150 on a regular basis!)

Anyway, I've been trying to get a blog up and running this year, and have content and all that planned but it's just a matter of doing it. Now that I'm in Emergency and we're strictly rostered to 38 hour weeks, I have much more time on my hands, so maybe it'll bear fruit!

Hah, you and your fulfilling of Asian stereotypes!

I've learned to be humble and not give two dicks about how large my paycheck is, as long as I'm happy.

You haven't even graduated from college yet. Get in, finish a degree, get a job and work a few months in it. Then tell me how it feels to have a career-based paycheck.

I'd say "neat more money" and then continue doing what I really want to do whilst half-assing the job I have a career-based paycheck in.

Are you really so certain already that your career wouldn't be what you really wanted to do?

That's kinda sad.

It's the case for some 90% of people, isn't it? Besides, it's not that I can make a living off of writing. As much as I want to, I probably will never become popular enough to get there.

It's the case for some 90% of people because some 90% of people create a self-fulfilling prophecy wherein their dreams are automatically consigned to the realms of fantasy.

There's being realistic and there's being defeatist. The fun part is that you won't really know which is what as defining the balance means deciding whether to take risks or not. And maximising returns from risky ventures involves being honest with your assessments.

(Assuming this is what you're alluding to,) you're right in that the majority of professional writers find it necessary to supplement their income to merely survive, but they come back to writing because writing is their labour of love. That said, to even make any kind of blip on the radar as a writer, the bottom line is that you'll need to gain a prerequisite level of technical skill and vision specifically geared towards the publishing market. There is no substitute for professional assessment. So if you're at all serious about doing it, that'll be your first test.

I have actually managed to uphold my strict policy of not drinking coffee or coffee-based drinks!

Except that one time where the registrar kept teasing me about it for five weeks straight, so I downed a latte as a farewell gesture for him.

Hmm, the undead. I'd prefer risk minimisation for the well (preventative measures) while the ID buffs work on the cure. I'm not an ID buff.
