Sophomore year starts in 11 days. Eep!! And then I’ll be back into the full swing of things. Including balancing two lab classes👩🔬 and a whole bunch of other stuff I’ve piled on. I can’t wait! ➡️But...no matter how excited we are, how prepared and organized and motivated, we all still have those moments where we want to give up and choose something else. When we’re really dedicated to something, though, we keep going no matter what. ➡️I was able to experience this last semester with my EMT class. It was in no way close to the same scale of stress and intensity as medical school or other professional schools, but it was still a lot. I took the class with one of my best friends so we drove together about an hour away from campus two times a week for the whole semester with 6 Saturday classes thrown in there on top of a full load of normal college classes. We also had seven 12 hour shifts we had to complete in the ER and on the ambulance🚑. ➡️It was a lot. I gave up a lot of campus activities, time with friends, sleep, and sanity. When we weren’t at class, you could probably find us in our dorm building running scenarios with each other😂
➡️There were moments where I was so discouraged or overwhelmed or frustrated that I kind of just wanted to curl up in a ball and make it all go away😣...those origins and insertions in anatomy...those acids and bases in chem...those OB/peds questions on the next exam...
➡️Somehow, I kept going. And here I am today! Thanks to amazing friends, JESUS, cereal, Pinterest, and “a little bit” of studying, I accomplished what I set out to do that semester. We all feel like this. At least I hope I’m not the only one! I’ve come to realize that our motivation for choosing this life is so important. ➡️So that’s just a little bit of my struggle, and I hope to share some of my #motivation for it all soon!❤️
Good night loves😘
