Stagnation and Resumption

So the year 2013 draws to an end– a year I knew would be full of many changes. As I now finish my first semester of medical school, it is hard to believe that this was the same year that I graduated from my undergraduate college, went on vacation across Orlando with my family, and started medical school in a new city.

I was excited about living in my own apartment, the science-oriented student body, and the block class schedule (meaning that instead of having multiple classes at once, we would have one class at … Continue reading

I ended up thoroughly enjoying my undergraduate college life, but a part of me would also feel that my time there was simply a means to an end; another stepping stone towards actually being trained to practice medicine. As everyone else has, I traveled the … Continue reading
