“Don’t ever give up on yourself or your dreams of becoming a doctor. You may stumble, you may fall, but what matters in the end is that you get your butt back up and keep it moving.”                       – Unknown (loose interpretation of Charles F. Kettering)

I haven’t published a new post in awhile. In my head I have a lIst of some pretty logical reasons to explain to myself my failure to allot a simple 30 mins in a 24 hour day to writing for my blog. However, in the end they are just excuses (granted they are some pretty good ones). This semester even though I have reduced to taking only 14 hours, I still find myself buried in work. One of the reasons being that I have refocused myself  to my studies because I want all As this semester. I guess I didn’t realize just how much my classes would demand of me. And if I don’t understand the amount of work I need to put forth, then I know outsiders definitely don’t. Today I have decided to point out the struggles of being pre-med. These are struggles anyone who is premed or even attempted to be will understand. When you run into fellow pre-medders, you have this understanding between each other….you are both doing your best to survive hell.

(In this post, I am in no way trying to undermine majors of different intents. College in general can be a struggle. Feel free to check out my earlier post about it here.)

As a college freshman who is also in her first semester, I completely agree with this post. These are things that all incoming freshman need to know before jumping into their first year on campus. Many of the things that she points out could make or break someone’s college experience. Class of 2015, do yourself a favor and learn from others mistakes.
