Ordinarily, I would have jumped to write about my hobbies or activities outside of medicine. But I am noticing a strange trend in all my activities outside of medicine--they all seem to be related to "service." I don't want to sound phony in the secondary, and yet I feel like service has always been a huge part of my life starting from childhood. I am just suffering a severe writer's block. could you guys share with me a few ideas you wrote about. . . perhaps it can get me motivated to get started on mine. Oh, and you don't have to worry about me using any of your ideas. I do have my own, I just need some inspiration...or spark...or something. Following was the question: Type or Copy and Paste a brief essay in your own words on some subject outside of medicine which has held your interest. Please limit your essay to 2 pages. PS: what do they mean by "subject" anyway??? Do they mean a class. . . .or just a "topic?" What context did you use it in?
