How I Became a Brain Surgeon Over Summer

task. When I had free time I wanted to do something, but what? So I undertook a very complicated task, I became a brain surgeon.

No, I didn’t literally become a brain surgeon, although I am not convinced that I would not be able to perform a C-section or a few sutures if necessary. I also did not take any medical classes; I simply wasted my life away in the best way I could think of at the time. I spent my days and nights when I was not occupied by something else, watching Grey’s Anatomy.

For those of you who don’t know, Grey’s Anatomy is a TV show about a group of surgeons at a hospital in Seattle. While watching this group of surgical interns go through their first day in an operation room, to running their own operating rooms, I somehow felt more and more educated with every “Next Episode” click.

While it is true that I could’ve actually been doing something to educate myself, like take classes or study an actual text. It still felt as though I was going to be the next Meredith Grey in no time. In two and a half months, I watched five seasons of this show and am still watching, just not as frequently.

My career as an incredible neurosurgeon has to be put on the back burner for everyone’s favorite time of the year, back to school. With classes, cheer, and FFA, I no longer have the time to study the multitude of surgeries that one can watch on the show. My new found career will simply have to wait until next summer when I can put all of my focus into becoming a brain surgeon. But for now, it is time to get back into the groove of juggling school, extracurriculars, and college applications. Maybe I should put my new found talent on my transcript.
