Have the most fun

I've been listening to old episodes of Cabin Pressure. Here's a dialogue:
'I have always wanted to be an airline captain... ever since I was six.'

'Ah, and before that?'

'I wanted to be an aeroplane. [...] What did you want to be?'

'Oh, various things at different times. I studied medicine at a university.'

'You wanted to be a doctor?'

'Well, I wanted to be a medical student. They seem to have the most fun. I'm not sure I ever wanted to be a doctor—glamorous, but gloopy.'
Guess I should go back to enjoying being a student, not having goals in sight, not feeling the need to do well. Go back to doing things where there's pleasure in doing them.
