Life On The Other Side

    I did it! I am done with USMLE Step 1! (assuming I passed... I hope I passed...) I think I did okay. I tried to stay as calm as I could while taking it, but it's hard not to have palpitations when taking a test that matters so much. Also, I was nice and calm until we had to get metal detected/turn out all our pockets/roll up our sleeves to get in and out of the room each time. Hard not to get nervous when they make such a huge ordeal out of the whole thing.

    Oh well! It's all over, and now I just have to wait for that score. One thing that surprised me was how fast the 8 hours went by! I was worried I would be burned out by the last few sections, but I had so much adrenaline running through my veins that I could have done another few sections haha! The whole day only seemed like two hours in my mind. Later, when I saw BF, he gave me some flowers to congratulate me. He is so sweet.

     Well, time to take care of all of the life chores I have been putting off and actually plan some stuff for my vacation to Peru with J! It feels weird to not be studying today... I almost feel guilty! I'm sure I'll get over that REAL quick! Also, how poetic is it that I earned my Starbucks gold card with the last coffee I got before my test!


  1. Yay yay yay!!!! Congrats on being done! Enjoy the shock of not studying, as it melts into sweet relief! I've heard other people say the same thing about the level of adrenaline, so I hope that's true for me too.

  2. woo-hoo!!!! i'm sure you did a great job on test!!! :)

  3. Congrats on being finished, and enjoy the freedom of not having to study anymore.
