    How did you wind up doing 10 years of residency? A gen surg residency is 5 years and a thoracic fellowhip is anywhere from 2 to 3. That's a long time to be training.

    was a Government Intl Relations/political economy double major with honours in both, changed to a double major in philosophy and Art History, I would've done a Physics and Philosophy double major if i could bother with the maths.

    Will probably end up as a painting major seeing how that's what i've been doing for most of my life.

    In another thread you mentioned Sydney Uni so is that Sydney College of the Arts?

    One of simple joys of life is visiting the NGA with Blue Poles and just sitting in front of it with no one around, one of the good things about Canberra.

    Not right now, SCA accepted my application after i graduated from high school, but i decided it would be a waste of time, although what i'm doing now is really no different. After i complete my BA, i'll be deciding whether I should proceed with a postgrad or enrol in a Bachelor at SCA.

    I was actually planning on going to NGA this weekend. How often do you go?

    Different how so? I used to hang with a group of Post Modernist Abstract Expressionists who went to COFA (know it?) back in the early 80's. Sadly heroin fucked a couple of them up and the rest did Dip Eds and became High School teacher, not a good choice its there sanity not mine. Bit of a hard career to hack out if ask me, painting that is. I go occasionally the NPA is ok more into photography these days. ps missus went to SCOA and UTS Design and AFTRS more money in film than paint. Ha teenage son not interested in Arts wants to be a chippie.

    Well i'm doing a philosophy/art history major purely to learn, I've no idea how to make money out of it. Sure i can teach or write academically but i doubt I'll do so well, and there's no room for mediocrity in that field of work.

    Yep, i know COFA, and the students there are worse than ever.

    No doubt painting would be a difficult pursuit, especially when i personally don't prescribe to the contemporary aesthetic (my work is Post-Impressionist) but i'm not looking for prosperity in a career, just enough for a comfortable life, and I can live on very little (apart from clothes and books, go figure). I thought about film, but I don't have the money for it.

    What does your wife do now?
