My Answers...

to your lovely questions. XD

What kind of doctor do you want to be?
here. you tell me what kind of doctor I should be. XD
I was/do consider psychiatry at times. ;)
I am not entirely sure yet. At the moment, most of my experience has been with general family practice, though I have had some great experiences with a few other specialists. Until I know more about each specialty, I think I'll have a hard time deciding...I do like the variety and broad knowledge base involved in being a GP. And I do know I would really love to be a rural doctor, which most commonly involves being a GP. And my school very much specializes in training GPs. But honestly...we have lecturers come in and actually talk down to us sometimes, which I do not appreciate. Because that knowledge base required is so broad, obviously family practice doctors are not able to know every detail about everything. Which is where the idea of specialists came from. Except that family practice is a specialty too - specializing in the individual or the family, and basically knowing all about them and their disease/injury and where they will need sent if they need sent at all. 
So yeah. :) 

When will you graduate?
Class of 2017, woohoo. I'll hopefully graduate from college this year, though. :D Excited to actually get a degree and prove I've done something with the past 4 years...though in all honesty I have far too little respect for a diploma to deserve one. :P

How many siblings do you have (and where in that order are you)?

There are 5 of us, and by birth order I am second. Though considering that my brother is 7 years older than me and started pastor school when I was 10, I'm really a bit of an oldest child sometimes. And then other times I'm rampantly a second born. ;) 
Except, I've noticed a tendency to beg my younger brothers for things, now that they're taller than me and have jobs, which I don't, making me not so much the older sister. XD When we go shopping together, I go all aegyo and yesterday I'm pretty sure I called my 7-years-younger brother oppa...
He bought me oreos.

How long have you been flying?

I went flying in my grandpa's small plane when I was three or four...started ground school for myself...oy, 9 years ago! That makes me feel old...

What kind of planes do you fly/have you flown?

Cessna 150, 152, 172 are the main ones I've flown...I'd like to learn to fly tail-wheel, though, and technically I could fly much bigger planes, if they weren't so expensive to rent. :P
(Good thing I'm small though - my guy instructors did not much appreciate the 150. They could barely breathe. Meanwhile, I get in the 172 and I'm like...Can I have a cushion to sit on? Actually...two of them?) XD

Have you ever been out of the country?

Canada. Glorious Lake of the Woods.

How old were you when you made a decision to follow Christ?

5-6...decided the following part even more Easter Sunday when I was 11...and I think recently I've been learning how it's a moment-by-moment decision to follow His will. I am His, always and forever, but each moment I have a choice to act as His or to let the ghost of the old man [girl] influence my actions.

How many books have you written?
6, almost 7, mostly rough drafts. :) And then 9 in various stages of begun-ness. 

How many books have you published?

Just one. The editing tends to bog me down when I'm in school. :P

Are you published in any other sources (magazines, newspapers, etc)?

I wrote the introduction to this book:
It was kind of exciting to be published when I was 13. XD

When you finished medical school, do you plan on taking your skills overseas as a missionary doctor? 
Plan, no. I really have no plans beyond finishing my second year and a half of classes. Once I hit rotations, I'll have to have a bit better idea of future plans, but that is then. 
I am open to wherever and whatever God has next. :)

And when do you think you will publish your book(s)?
haha...welllllllll...okay, I would love to self-publish 1 this summer and start looking for agents/publishers for another. We'll see what else happens this summer. :)

And then I was tagged by lovely Jessica, and figured that would fit well here. XD Sooo...

1. What would you title your autobiography?
Ha. Um...Giiwanaadizi? (Ojibwe word meaning she is crazy. XD) I guess it depends. If I wrote it now? I'd probably go find the Ojibwe word that means she is pretentious and absurd. ;) 
If I actually do something interesting in my life and decide to write an autobiography? I dunno. I have a hard time imagining what exactly I'd have to say about myself that would make a readable book...

2. How would you describe your feelings to a person who had never experienced love before?
I think I would simply love them. God is love...but would we have understood that without Him coming and and dying to save us? I would show them love in every way I could, and then tell them it was love.

3. The sun is setting, it's your last day on earth. How did you spend your last day?
Bummer...apparently I tried to catch up on sleep, wrote a blog post, went to my sister's violin lessons, and worked on school stuff. (Yes, I have assignments during spring break...)

4. Your happy color.
It depends...soft yellow generally makes me happy. I want a yellow kitchen. :)

5. Your favorite flower is in bloom, do you a. pick it, b. let it grow and slowly fade and dry the petals c. find a way to extract seeds so you can plant even more next year.
Is there just one of them??? In that case I'd work with the seeds. More than one...PICK IT.

6. Your worst fear has come to pass. What just happened?
Sheesh. Thanks for bringing all my nightmares to mind...truly? Probably that someone I love died and it was my fault. Well, if anyone died and it was my fault. (And it's a frightening thing to be in medical school. Do you have any idea how many ways there are for people to die? And pretty soon it's going to be my fault if I'm unable to stop it, not just if I accidentally caused it. It's something we talk about, and for sure think about, and it's terrifying.)

7. Though a series of  events you suddenly find out you are a princess, how do you handle this? Do you resign and go back to private life, or believe that some people are born great and others have greatness thrust upon them, and that this is your duty come what may.
Princess of where? The decision is all in the details. ;) I'm not one for destiny and fate, so you could probably expect a bit of kicking on my part. Unless I was convinced that it was where God wanted me to be. (Since, despite my grudge against fate, I don't believe in accidents either.)

8. What animal have you always wanted to keep for a pet that you are sure no one would let you keep.
RED PANDA. Or a black panther.  XD I'd say a wolf, but I could actually keep that, if I reeeealllly wanted. (For sure a wolf-dog.)

9. You get a chance to live overseas for one year, where would you go and what would you do?
A year is a long time.

10. You fall asleep and wake up in your favorite childhood storybook. What are you going to do and how are you going to get out?
Who says I want to get out... XD And I don't know...I always had a million favorite books. To pick one at random - Johnny Tremain. I presume I'd run around and see all the famous people and watch revolution-y things and maybe try to keep Rab alive. And I'd probably try going back to sleep as a way to get out. XD

11. Do you multi-task? Does it hinder or help you?
Oh, do I ever multi-task... :D And it depends. Sometimes it's distracting and I'm working on cutting back...but sometimes doing two things at once (say, studying and listening to music, or studying and writing an email on the side) actually keeps me focused on the task at hand.
