I made it.
I completed my first year of medical school.
I feel proud. I feel accomplished. Yet I feel like I have a very very long way to go. I am as timid as day 1 and still just as uneasy. But confident.
This year went by incredibly fast. I moved in with my boyfriend, I started taking care of patients, I gave someone people their vaccinations. I guess this is what growing up feels like.
I feel so honored to become a doctor. I feel like I can really make a difference in a person’s life. But that is what makes the profession so hard. You can make such a difference in a person’s life. Every decision matters. There is no time to be lazy or make mistakes. There’s not time for much, actually.
