Okay, I’ll admit it: I’m squeamish. The sight of my own blood can make me feel weak at the knees. That’s why it’s a bit strange that I ended up in a pre-med course (my undergrad bachelor of science degree in psychology was pre-med in my university). But, I did survive uni (dissecting frogs and all that) — even though I decided that becoming a medical doctor wasn’t what I wanted for myself after all. So, I guess I’m not too bad.
Anyway, you’d think that filling up forms is safe enough even for a squeamish person like me. But, when I was filling up the form to apply for a driving theory test to get my learner’s permit (yes, I can’t drive yet), one question actually made me feel weak: Are you an organ donor?
Before that time, I haven’t really made the official decision yet. I’m not sure why. I know that it was the right thing to do, but the thought of it made me feel strange.
In any case, I got over the initial strangeness and ticked the box next to the word ‘yes’.
Oh, and I passed my written driving theory test too. First attempt! Yay! I think it’s partly due to the fact that I’ve taken the online practice tests from the RAA for about a hundred times before taking the actual exam.
Anyway, I’m getting my learner’s permit and starting driving lessons next month. Now, that’s another thought that’s making me feel all queasy. Ack.
