Just asked my mom if she’d print an awesome 73pg Peds review packet for me at work… Now this ^^^ is what I imagine she is doing.

I woke up today with the worst crick in my neck. Like I can barely turn past midline on the right. My trap is tight from my head to my scapula and all my posterior neck muscles are all knotted up. I have massaged it, heating-padded it, and Ibuprofened it to no avail.

Halp. Tell…

Some of the folks on my IM team are DO’s and I said, “Awesome, you can use your OMM sorcery on me!” And they acted surprised an MD student knew what was up.

Haha that’s great! It’s nice when you meet other professionals that know what D.O.s are. During 2nd year clinical experiences most of the docs I followed around had no clue.
It’s always fun to whip out the OMT sorcery on the unknowing! Muahahaha. :)

Hey! I was wondering, how did you study in third year? For us we spend 1 week on each “system” so we had our first week on cardiology, and I noticed we get very few lectures and a lot of it is just learning on the wards. It seems like we’re just expected to do our own readings and figure stuff…

DOs HALP!

Halp. Tell me what magic button in my neck I’m supposed to press to make it all go back nice and loosey goosey.

^^^ My problem since I’ve started training for another half!

I’d give almost anything to have another D.O. student around to fix me!

I just flew into the town where my medical school interview is at….and they don’t have a chipotle.

Idk if I can go here.

I have made a terrible mistake!!!

Jk, kind of. I love my school, but I miss lots of stuff from back home.

I start my Peds rotation next week.

(The only specialty I had already ruled out was Peds…) lol

So I recently switched undergrad programs and because I’m so busy and don’t know anyone in my new program yet, I worried that I’m gonna end up as a lone wolf. So I was wondering if you ever struggled with solitude, given that med school and residency are so time and energy…

I’m terrified of starting at this hospital in a few days as the only student (possibly 1 of 2 students). I have one friend in this town that is super busy with her first year of teaching. I fear that the loneliness will set in before I can make friends here.

Anonymous said: Do you have any quotes or sayings that help you keep studying?

2 Timothy 1:7
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

I get side tracked from studying, but when it comes down to the grind, I think of how I’m part of a bigger plan. God has brought me thus far, and I must do my part to be prepared for the path that he lays before me.

Other things that help me refocus back to my studies, include taking a yoga break or listening to some alt/rock music.
If you feel burnt out, take a 10min break and come back. Distance yourself from social media (my biggest prob!). Stay hydrated, exercise, and get plenty of sleep!
