Six days until Orientation starts at Creighton University. I’ll finish my journey to Omaha on Saturday and try my best to get settled in a few days.
I’m excited/nervous/everything you’d expect to feel about starting medical school. I’m looking forward to meeting lots of new people and making friends. Having been out for two years, I’m actually looking forward to the school work, although I’m sure that will change in a couple weeks.
I’m anxious about being able to handle the workload and still have a life. From the conversations I’ve had with med students, it seems to be about boundaries. It’s about setting a schedule and sticking to it, and when you’re done studying, you’re done. I believe I can do that, but have yet to put it into practice. Do I have the discipline to stop studying even though I know there’s more to learn? I’ll keep you updated.
I’m curious, are any of you starting med school soon? What are you excited or nervous about?
