I finished my last final yesterday. I am officially finished with my first year of medical school.
It feels so great to be able to drink wine with dinner. It feels so wonderful to not have to look forward to studying until two in the morning. It was grueling, don’t get me wrong, but I thought it would be harder. I wasn’t sure I could make it, and I did. I wasn’t sure I would fit in, and I think I made a lot of friends. I was pleasantly surprised with my classmates, myself, and the school. I can’t wait until we start learning systems next year. Well, strike that. I can definitely wait six weeks.
