It all goes so quickly. Blink and a whole semester is gone. As painful as it all is at times, it flies faster than anything I have ever done.
I'm so glad I am here. It has been the most challenging but satisfying time in my life.
I am in the course with some of the most financially rich people I have met in my entire life. I don't think they realise that not everybody has a favourite place in the world to go skiing, or aspires to have a whole wardrobe (or hallway) of designer shoes, rather than just the one pair that they have right now as a student.
Coming to the realization that I'm smart enough to be here was a personal discovery that I have only made in the past six months.
I'm still here and I'm genuinely happy. I think there is a place for me in medicine and I can see myself being content and challenged there for the rest of my career. This is brilliant.
