It feels like I was just attempting to be better at posting updates when I fell off the planet again…
welp, I’m back and I got big news medblr….
I PASSED MY FIRST YEAR OF MEDICAL SCHOOL OH DEAR LORD HOW DID I DO THAT??!?!
Not going to lie, it was very stressful at the end. Our final systems block was Renal and it felt like getting punched in the kidneys everyday. Other responsibilities started to ramp up and lots of family and friends events all plopped right in the middle of it. But there is a lot of truth to the statement “Do the next thing.” It’s definitely why I made it through, and I don’t regret the stress of enjoying each thing as it came! I have this summer mostly off, other than clinic responsibilities and a basic research project. You’ll be hearing more from me, for real this time.
