The Struggles of Being Pre-Med


“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.)
