One Down…Three to Go

I am done with Year One of med school…which sounds pretty weird to say.  It seems like it just started, and now it’s over!  It has been one heck of a year, and I’ve got to say, summer break has never looked so good.

The end of a quarter is always pretty hard.  We have a lot of practicals and exams, but this time it was especially rough.  It has just been such a long year, even though it’s gone by fast.  Med school has been the most challenging thing I have ever undertaken, and over the last few weeks I have just felt so burnt out.

Honestly, I have no idea how I managed to study for finals this week.  And it still hasn’t hit me that it’s really over.  I want to cry, I want to celebrate, and really, I just want to sleep.
