So Much To Do... No Time

Guess what?

I started med school.

After so many up's and down's, it's finally here. It was a really tough road, but I wouldn't have had it any other way because I now feel 101% confident that this is the right path for me and it's one that I am ready to take.

The transition has been so much easier than I was expecting. I am strangely comfortable dissecting a cadaver (those OCD tendencies are pretty handy!); I love having an apartment and a city that I can really call my own for the first time; I was able to fall right back into the pattern of going to class and studying; and I am with a bunch of people who geek out about the same weird things as me. 

Don't get me wrong, I really really miss coming home at the end of a long day and having dinner and talking with my mom and then getting to just relax and watch movies or read books for fun, but it's also pretty great to come home to my little hipster-y (unintentional...really) studio and cook dinner....and then memorize the branches of the axillary artery and the muscles that they supply blood to.

Home Sweet Home

But I'm trying to remember the importance of balance, so I plan on spending time with friends, going to a few concerts, keep up with a few TV shows, etc.

Oh, and this...

Don't worry...I'm only doing the half-marathon.
What better way to celebrate the end of my first term of med school than to run for 13.1 miles?!

In short, my balance of time just got way more interesting, but I plan on trying to pop in here every once in a while to therapeutically write about things and share things. Whether anyone actually continues to read or not doesn't matter, I have a tough road ahead and sometimes you need  a place to just write about silly things or serious things.

So, that's what I plan on doing.


  1. so proud of you manderz! and the apartment looks great!

  2. when the going gets tough..the tough gets going.
    and when at such places you halt..and introspect
    there is a always a tree which bears fruits of success.
    i would like to share them..but people generally won't,..
    let them not,
    let them eat the fruit..and.i shall sow the seed.
