The Cambridge admissions results have been announced.
To all those who got in, I congratulate you heartily. This will most likely shape the rest of your life, and you should now let nothing stand between you and straight A's in your examinations. The greatest tragedy in life is the man who goes to his grave with his music still in him (or something like that. Quote not mine. --Ed) so if you ever brace yourselves for your one supreme effort in life, it's now. Drop me an e-mail and tell me all about it. And drop by Jesus College when you do get here. (Bring food. We medics get hungry you know. --Editor)
To those who were unsuccessful, I still congratulate you. I like to think that our lives are not just random collections of coincidence, and that everything that happens does so for a reason. And Oxbridge is not for all of us. It's certainly not the best place for me, but that is a choice I made. You will be much happier studying elsewhere. Trust me. I know.
Whatever happens, drop me a line if you feel like ranting. (No, I have nothing better to do. Yes, I should be working but am trying to procrastinate. Yes, I have no life. --Ed)
Stay tuned, folks--coming up soon, a special Apprentice-related blog segment, and the account of my annual hospital visit! (Yes, I get to visit the hospital once a year. Yes, I know how pathetic that makes me sound compared to the billions of other med students out there who post a hospital-related blog post every day. Yes, I AM as excited about it as a three-year-old on Red Bull. No, that does NOT make me pathetic. --Ed)
