LONG POST AHEAD!!
So I’ve been sitting in bed in the dark for a solid hour thinking about my second year in medical school. Tomorrow will technically be my last day of second year (I’m gonna crush you IM shelf!!), and I can’t help but think about how HARD this year was. I started the year barely knowing anything clinically. I was very overweight. And I was in an incredibly unhealthy and unfulfilling relationship with a guy who was unable to value me. I also had two amazing kitties (I miss you bbs!!). Looking back at who I was around this time last year and who I am now, I’m amazed. I feel like a different person. In fact, I AM a different person. I have grown so much as a future doctor (I actually know what the hell I’m talking about.....okay, like 30% of the time anyway ). I’ve taken control of my health and am progressing to the level of fitness that I’ve wanted for YEARS. And I’ve finally learned who I am as a woman and what I deserve out of relationships. Of course, I’ve been surrounded by wonderful friends throughout this process, and have made many along the way. I can’t even believe the amount of growth (both as a future physician and a woman) I’ve made in just a single year! I can’t wait to see what third year holds!! #ms2 #ms3
