Medical School Week 1

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. 


  1. Ugggghhhhh I see Charlie a year ago. The adjustment period was the worst!! You'll get through it. I can't believe you already have a test! Yikes! I'm proud of you too!!

  2. YAY one week down! Going back to school as an adult is hard- it was so hard for us when B went back to school. So enjoy that cupcake you instagrammed and keep up the great work!!!!

  3. Holy crap... this is giving me flashbacks from my first few weeks of law school. I imagine med school to be even worse though. (Possibly because it really is, and possibly just because I don't understand half the words I see in your pictures...) Glad you made it through! And if my law school experience is anything like your med school experience, then rest assured that it will calm down, and you will have a normal life again. Someday. ;)
