My first week of medical school is done.
And we are surviving at this point.
Week 1 has basically been half of my undergraduate sciences classes
rolled into 5 days of class.
It's been like a tidal wave.
They said there would be an adjustment period and that is 100% the truth.
Adjusting to better time management,
something that I used to think I was good at.
But on this level it's tooootally different.
Adjusting to balancing school and studying
(which seems to be all I have time for)
with being married, having friends, seeing family.
Not to mention finding time to eat (down 4 lbs already), workout, sleep and be sane.
Adjusting to realizing that I've worked so hard to get here, now I have to stay here.
I'm sure it will get easier and more manageable even within the next week.
But for now this is basically how I've spent all my time lately.
Oh and did I mention Exam #1 is today already. 10am.
I'm thankful for my husband who understands this madness
and tells me that he's proud of me.
And for my mom who offers to bring over a cooked dinner
and leaves me presents of new shampoo.
Bring it on week two, I can take it.
