Forget how life is supposed to be

Forget about all the deadlines. The early morning starts. The running for the bus. The homework due in. The nine to five. The rush rush rush. Forget about all the things you have to run around and do in the day just to end exactly where you started. Back. In. Bed. Forget about being who [...]

In my dream world

You will always be that hot shot surgeon and I will always be that intern that fell in love with you. Only I would fail so greatly on the first day in a new hospital, only I would have slept with my boss the night before, only I would be so stupid to not realise [...]
