Hi everyone. I know it’s been quite a bit since I’ve posted here or on instagram or facebook, but a lot has been going on in my life so an update is due!
Since July I have moved to Tampa, started medical school, and ran my first marathon! I’ll be the first to say that I’m proud of all I’ve been able to do this year. But absolutely none of it was easy.
I knew I would take some time off from the blog to start medical school off the right way; give it my full attention. Our first course just recently ended and I now have a much better idea of what my schedule needs to look like to do well. Basically in lecture and the library all day…but I’ll get into the details of my study schedule in a post down the road.
I have decided that I’d like to have one new blog post each week. I believe I can make that happen even with the rigors of school. As many of you know, I started this blog because I love to write and it has always been a way for me to escape my anxiety. That has never been more important than it is today. So I’m making a promise to myself to spend 2 hours each weekend on blog material. This will be time when I can separate my brain from the medicine/science and just breathe. I hope y’all can follow along and see what my updated life is looking like. And I hope that those of you who are thinking about medicine as a career path can find answers in a lot of the posts!
Medical school is hard. There is no way around it. But I have found more support than I could have imagined. And I have found inspiration in the material that I never thought I would find. There are more bright days than dark days and that’s really all I can ask for right now.
So be on the look out for a new post every Tuesday morning and more posts all around social media as I get back into my creative side.
