Year Two

Summer is officially over for me, and I have never been less excited to be back in school.  And, to make things even better, I’m sick.  I knew it would be hard to get back into study mode, but it is even worse because I feel horrible and just want to sleep.  I suppose it’s better to get sick now when I don’t have too much homework rather than in a week or two when things really take off.  I would prefer not to get sick at all, but such is life.

I’m a “second year” now, which feels really weird.  I have a different classroom.  I’m taking different classes.  And I feel like I should know more than I do.  I just don’t feel prepared for everything that is going to happen this year.  For example, I have to take the Boards in less than eleven months!  What is that all about?!

After two days of classes, it still feels like I am dreaming.  Is this real life?  I can’t tell if I’m still in summer mode or it is just the DayQuil talking.  Either way, I’m a little out of it.  I think I need more sleep…but I need to study…uuugghhh.  I wish it could just be summer forever.

    I would wonder if being a doctor is a lot like being a teacher – the first year you catch everything that everyone around you has . . . until you build up your immunity, and then your are as tough as nails.

    Praying you feel better soon and that you build up all sorts of immunity!
