So I started med school recently. It's been ........... eventful haha. I decided to chose to stay in Sydney and study so I could be closer to home with family and friends - you know, your support network. As a result, I'm studying with high school leavers and although they don't make up the majority, I'm definitely noticing the maturity differences. At first, it was very full on, their presence I mean. But it's been over 3 weeks and we're kind of all melding together. I've met some really nice and fun people over the past month.
I told myself I would be a little bit more involved in this degree than I was in my last. I went to med camp and in retrospect had an absolute blast. On the Saturday night, we had the party and the med students from all grades came and it was so fucking lit hahahaha. The only times I left the dance floor were to get drinks and go to the bathroom. The bathroom escapades were fun. It was like a good 5 min walk into the bush and you'd run into so many people along the way and have 15 min conversations with them and each bathroom run would take almost half an hour hahaha.
So yeah, med camp party was pretty lit, the camp itself was also quite good :) In an attempt to be more involved I also ran for first year rep of the medical society and was elected! along with my friend Anthony. We have so much shit to do lmao, like plan an easter egg hunt, tutorial games, next years med camp etc. I hope I don't get run down because of the responsibilities. I'm excited for the year ahead!
One final thing, idk if I ever expressed this, but during med sci (with the exception of 3rd year) I would have days where I dreaded going into class. During Hons, there were some days where I would dread doing certain experiments, write ups etc. and I think it's because I knew I wasn't really 100% into it. Like my heart wasn't fully there. And while there are ofc good days and bad days with med, I'm looking forward to everyday and each week we have to present/discuss things in our PBL and I actually love it so much. I think I'm finally doing something I really want to do :)
How are y'all?
