I hope my nose piercing didn't set me back at Temple, and I'm praying it won't affect me at UIC this Friday. It's new so I can't take it out. Plus, there's a bump underneath, so I need the ring to cover it
“We come unbidden into this life, and if we are lucky we find a purpose beyond starvation, misery, and early death which, lest we forget, is the common lot. I grew up and I found my purpose and it was to become a physician. My intent wasn't to save the world as much as to heal myself. Few doctors will admit this, certainly not young ones, but subconsciously, in entering the profession, we must believe that ministering to others will heal our woundedness. And it can. but it can also deepen the wound.”
