The Most Sacred, Forbidden Vault

Now that things have started to realign for my health education, I find myself internally cataloging some of the more defining experiences I had in medical school. Since nursing school (or even physician assistant school for that matter) is not as detailed as medical school, I will be fortunate enough to carry with me a bit of a deeper insight to the training I will receive. One such insight includes my time in Anatomy Lab, a course that is often … Continue reading

Refit: Three Months Later

Two more months have passed since the last time I posted regarding the aftermath of my departure from medical school. I apologize if these update posts are not very engaging to read, but I also find it important for myself to document this progression. As I mentioned before, I try to keep my bearings so that I do not fall into the rut where I completely lose track of the all the time spent in this situation. For this reason, … Continue reading

Repairs: One Month Later

It has only been a mere thirty-one days since the post announcing the cataclysmic shift in my aspirations, yet my time in medical school feels far in the distant past. I suppose I can owe it to the stark contrast between my lifestyle then and my now stagnant circumstances, but regaining my free time also puts into perspective just how much time one is given to either use or squander. Recently, I was forced to flip from one of these … Continue reading

Self Destruction

At this point, roughly six months have passed since the last time I posted about medical school… for a number of reasons that will hopefully come to light over the course of this entry. Six months– it is a time span that feels trivial while caught in the rigors of schoolwork, yet proves to be enough time to turn one’s life hard to starboard and send them completely off course. While it is one thing to be knocked into an … Continue reading

A Different Sort of Spring Break

Since medical school is so time consuming, even the shortest holidays make it feel as if one hasn’t been at school for a while. As a result, despite the fact that we have fewer days off, their durations always feel enough; this Spring Break was no different. Now, even though I say “no different”, this break was unique in the way that it was the same length (and was at the same time) as the Spring Break the undergraduate students … Continue reading

One Week at a Time

It has been a while since I got adjusted to school life in medical school. Initially, I felt a little displaced at my new campus until I realized that I was the same school setting I had attended over the years, but in a completely different environment (both physically and socially). If my overall school experience up to this point can be symbolized by the mood present in the game Persona 4, I would assert that the mood in medical … Continue reading

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. College has truly been the best thing to happen to me, with the past four years being packed … Continue reading

Realized Gratefulness

 SMILE, as remixed in the Persona 4 -Reincarnation- album. The song that often plays when deepening Social Links I sit here beginning to type this post roughly five and a half hours after Thanksgiving Day has officially ended in the United States– an oddly apt delay considering the content of this post. I suppose that’s also my personality under normal circumstances. I quietly reflect and pick apart my feelings, exposing underlying feelings that give me a better understanding about the … Continue reading

Truth is… Multifaceted

The truth is, I have been having a hard time adjusting to my new life– something that did not happen during my transition from high school to undergrad. I suppose I left my undergraduate college expecting life in medical school to be similar; undoubtedly harder, but similar. 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

A Calling and a Journey

Four years ago, I entered my undergraduate college as a Biology major– not because I loved Biology, but because I felt it to be the best means for me to pursue a path towards Medicine. 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
