Hahaha. Nooo silly Peter~ You kill them yourself and blame the French for they had a shortage of frog legs and take all the money. Of course! ... No. I'm kidding. Anyways, In total, it'd be about 10-13 years of school. Besides the Undergraduate years, you had med school, then residency, then an additional year of pathology specializing, and then another additional year for forensic pathology specialization (getting to actually deal with the government and all these murder crime stuff).
And you're up for 13 years of hiding in your hoody?
I honestly can't see why your mum would panic about you being able to ruin people's CSI watching at will.
That's why I'm taking a semester off to work at a hospital and see if I'm really up for it. (Mum also freaked when I did this, but hey---I'm paying for my education. Soooo~ Whatevs.)
Heh. Because. 1. It's dead people. 2. I'm a 'girl', "What are people going to think about this!?" 3. 13 years wasted on my youth. 4. "Pharmacy is better. Only 6 years! And it's a respectable job." 5. "WHAT IF YOU GET CAUGHT UP WITH A MAFIA BODY AND THE MAFIA TRY TO THREATEN YOU TO COVER UP MURDERS FOR THEM OR ELSE AND YOU'RE TRYING TO BE A GOOD PERSON AND TELL THE TRUTH BUT IN THE END I GET A POLICE AT MY DOORSTEP TELLING ME MY DAUGHTER WHEN TO MED SCHOOL TO END UP ON A FORENSICS TABLE INSTEAD!"
....Ah. My life.
Ahah, my mom lucked out. All her sons chose "safe" professions. By the time we're done with college, she'll have an economist, a doctor, and an accountant for sons :-D
Aww~ ^u^ That's nice! Just don't tell my mother that. My brother is graduating high school this year and wants to build robots. Mom thinks that's a bit strange too.
"Why? You don't like people?"
Me: "Nope. He's going to make cyborgs."
Mom: "WHAT!? NO!"
Victor: "...I'll build my own wife, and dammit she'll make me a sandwich."
Mom: "........One child wants to live with the dead. The other wants to have a robot wife. Why?"
Ah. We love messing with our mother.
