How much more self explanatory can the title get?
Every good student in the medical field knows that every waking moment is precious time that can be used to study. Naturally, I am like that in that I accompany any daily task with a side of studying ... literally. I wake up, I study something before I get out of bed, in the shower I'm mentally reviewing something, I'm eating, I am quizzing myself, I'm on the train, I go over hundreds of terms before my stop, during lecture breaks I'm studying, while I'm walking, I'm listening to a lecture. You get the idea.
Today, Saturday, is not one of those days, when it should have been. This is the fourth week of my second semester of nursing school and MBA school and its not going so hot as I thought and it's not because the work is hard or unbearable. Trust me, it's not.
The thing is right now as much as I love both nursing and business and getting my work done on time with exceptionally great quality, my priority right now is ... yup you guessed it, the MCATs.
This exam is dramatically altering the way in which I would normally organize my daily activities. Don't get me wrong, I am actually for the first time in four years, enjoying the studying process for the MCATs because now I have a good study method down; I see it as a challenge that I will overcome. But c'mon, put yourself in my shoes, two full time schools along with an exam that requires full time attention too? It's A LOT, but not to worry, where there is a will, there is a way. The clock is running and the deadlines are going to come and go like nothing, so I need to get with the program, but for now, I am going to have to be okay and not feel guilty that all I did today was sleep.
Sleep is healthy, is what I keep telling myself. Here's to a better study day tomorrow. Stay tuned...
