If I Had The Patience I Would Be In Medical School

I don't know about you but when I was a kid I researched several career professions because I was determined to do something that would make a difference in the world. I've always liked and wanted to help people so my first thought was to be a teacher....that was quickly dispelled because I saw what the teachers had to deal with in my classroom and I vowed NEVER to have to put up with other people's bad children.

I then made up in my mind that I would be a lawyer. It intrigued me how you had to meticulously work at proving someone was right in order to help them and keep them from living in a cold cell. You got to learn all about a person and their motives, IF they had some to commit a crime, as well as, why they were a suspect in the first place. Human nature always intrigued me. After more research and finding out that I would more than likely get a case where I figured out they were really guilty but I would still have to defend them or let the case go altogether, I changed my mind. Something about manipulating the truth just didn't sit well with me.

So in between my dreams of being a lawyer and a psychologist (what I eventually decided I would go to school for), I briefly thought about being a scientist. That research took the longest. Scientists pretty much had to do the same schooling as any other doctor so that meant years of rigorous learning, tests, sleepless nights, and then once you passed all of that, years of sharpening your skills because science stands still for no one. It is a profession that constantly evolves. Once I realized just how much of your life you have to give over to this profession I paused. This was a lot...but I think me wanting to be a Scientist as a kid is the reason I love Science Fiction films so much. 

Which brings us to the point of this blog...I LOVE the show FRINGE.

Tuesday was the first episode of the new season and it was just as good as the last season. I get so upset when the show goes off because I could literally watch this all day and night. While some people might think the show is farfetched and the likelihood of the phenomenons that the Scientist and FBI agents experience really existing are null, I TOTALLY believe in most of the things that are presented on the show. Last night the show was about some moron who was infecting folks with the common cold. Except the common cold had been mutated into this disgusting slug like thing that didn't stay in the human host but for the few minutes it took to mutate inside their gut and bust loose out of their mouths....killing them as it shimmied its way out of the esophagus. Truly gross. Highly entertaining.

I believe some of these things are representations of what really is going on over at the CDC and FBI because there are so many things that are TOP SECRET, as well as, so many things the government is "working" on to make us a healthier country....so they say. A lot of the diseases that exist today are in fact man made and just so happened to "get loose". Who in their right mind would unleash this shat? Here's a thought...scientists attempting to see if their cures work or better yet, someone who is an idiot and trying to test it on themselves and then ends up spreading it to others. Just a thought...

But yeah...all that to say I love FRINGE and every time it comes on, it takes me back to my childhood dream of wanting to be a Scientist.
