In all honesty, I don't think I'd ever even told anyone about it. Oncology, I mean. I'd mentioned to my mom before that I was toying with psychiatry as well as oncology, since I think both are really important to society right now. I feel more strongly about psychiatry, because there's this social stigma against mental illness, so much that people who need treatment are too ashamed to get it. The way I see it, when you're physically unwell, you go to a doctor or some specialist; when you're mentally unwell, you go to a therapist or a psychiatrist. However, I'm not sure if I have the right frame of mind to go into psychiatry, so I guess the decision was made for me.

It's not set in stone, though. Something new might pique my interest when I'm in my first few years of university, who knows? I'm a teenager, in any case -- most of us can't even decide what to have for lunch or what clothes to wear. As for now, though, oncology ftw.
Anyway, about the competition. The ten winners shortlisted by the judges will be announced in nine days' time, on the 12th of July. From then on, it's vote-based. So, uh, if I do get into the top ten, could you please maybe do a little extra clicking when you're online and vote for me? These are the prizes. An iPod touch plus cash? Yes, please!
The point of this post is twofold:
1. As an explanation of sorts, 'cause I think I've mentioned doing Psychiatry on here before.
2. To tell you all about the competition and to ask you all to vote if I get shortlisted. Hee hee.
Thankyou and goodnight.
