So, another year has begun. From what we’ve heard, this year will be as tough as a femur, possibly the most sleepless year of our lives. We’ll have many things to look forward to, such as OSCEs, labs, clinics, exam weeks, and the ominous step one.
First year of med school :::: COMPLETE!
Whew! What a week. Test headaches and nausea, broken brakes and burning cars, and more internal bleeding.
It’s only one week before test week, so we’re studying hard. However, in those few spare moments we have, we try and enjoy them as much as possible!
We’re back! And, it’s a new year-2013.
First of all, we’d like to extend a warm-felt apology to all our dedicated followers. All two of you (hi mom and dad).
Anyways, so here’s what’s happened and what’s going to happen.
…and so we’ve completed another med school test cycle. And so we’ve experienced a full serving and a half of fun, rainbows, and butterflies.
And by fun, rainbows, and butterflies, we mean stress, studying, and sadness.
Shows like Vampire Diaries or the Walking Dead make the dead seem so thrilling and intriguing. Med school bring about an entirely different perspective. We spend at least two hours a week in the anatomy lab and many hours studying for the lectures.
In addition to the college classes we listed in our last post, there is one more area you may consider studying up on–accents. Med school professors come from all around the world. So far we have had lectures in the following accents: Texan, British, Aussie, Peruvian, and Chinese.
This week we had Monday off, for Labor Day. Three-day weekends in med school are a little different from our college and high school days. They’re not quite as fun-filled to the brim as they used to be, but they’re definitely still appreciated–perhaps even more so.
