Secure in Our Travels Together

Near the start of my second semester at medical school, I began writing a post discussing the way I regarded some of my friends, namely some who I had the opportunity to bond with throughout my time at undergrad. Amidst the trials associated with medical school and the new friends I had made there, I still persisted in thinking about my college friends from time — a testament to the impact of these ties on my life.

Partly due to the amount of times I had to move in my middle school years, I have come to … Continue reading
