I've been in university for about 5 years now. I'm currently at the age of 22, and I've got only 2 years left of medical school before graduating and getting my degree. But, surely, the people around me still treat me like I'm a 12 year old. Which is kinda hard to argue with, considering that I do still look like one to most people, apparently. And by this point I'm concerned at how my future patients are going to react when the "doctor" that's supposedly treating them look like a(n) illiterate kid.

I worked at the local gas station last summer and the customers literally asked me if I didnt want to further my study anymore and just decided on working there for the rest of my life (most of them thought I was a school dropout). Once, I was my dad's plus one to a wedding, and a lady asked me what school do I go to (she literally thought I wasn't anywhere older than 15)

But with so much things going on my mind right now, I've decided to deal with one ridiculous problem at a time. My current dilemma I'm dealing with now is figuring how much I've changed since I came to Egypt 5 years ago. Initially, I couldn't come up with anything. But I was scrolling through my deleted posts that I think...

I may have became more of a "bitch" than I already was.

I tend to use my head less nowadays. I just straight out say the first thing that pops, without even running them by my brain for a second. Sometimes it makes people laugh, because they thought I was being funny and telling a joke. Little did they know, I was dead serious. But some other times they get hurt and offended by the things that came out of my mouth. It's really just a matter of time before I come home with a black eye or a hand print on one of my cheeks.

In the mean time, I really need to try to keep my mouth shut and speak less. They say wisdom comes with age, but I guess that's not the case with me. To be honest, a part of me blames the people who've mistaken me for a child, for I seem to be acting and/or speaking like one now.
