Week 1

I love med school.  I haven’t exactly been dancing around the hallways shouting it at the top of my lungs, but I get out of bed quicker, smile more, and actually look forward to each day.   My time is really my own here – I study a lot, but lecture isn’t required and I could cut my study time in half if I needed to just by watching the recordings on double speed if I started to feel stressed about it.  I consider myself a pretty content person, but I can’t remember the last time I liked life this much.

I’m a cynical person, so normally I’d be tempted to add a “We’ll see how long THAT lasts” to the last paragraph – but what the heck, maybe I’ll give myself a break and just admit that it’s nice to feel like I’m in exactly the right place.   After all, we’ve had lectures that have gone over my head, I have a whiteboard in my room filled with arteries and nerves to memorize, and I’ve been waking up at 5am all week – so med school is hard, but so far it’s also infinitely more awesome than undergrad (at least, education-wise).

Downside: I have absolutely no idea what’s happened in the world this week.  I haven’t even had a chance to catch up with The Daily Show, guys.  Whether this is because med school is hard, or because I still haven’t gotten my computer yet (yep, I’m blogging in the computer lab), is anyone’s guess.
