    I get straight A's in school. One of the smartest in my school, the teachers expect me to become a Surgeon or Lawyer, but I feel like my true passion is to become a police officer, but the only problem is that my friends, family, and everyone around me thinks that jobs are only for stupid people, and now I ended up in med school, and I absolutely hate it, regret ever going to med school. UGHHHHH
