First year med school and me

8 min read

My first day 

I was 19 when I got admission to medical college.17th April 2022, my first day at med school and I can't describe at that point what it meant to me.
For me it's like a new journey of life I always dreamed of. The new rush the new feel and the room full of strangers. Wearing the white aprons for 8 hours of classes and extra classes is what I have to be adapted with. The various departments on various floors with big and long corridors I ought to get lost in these corridors. Sitting in that huge hall with all my mates was so much exciting. Wearing that white unstained coat at 42 degrees is something  Iwas so proud of.

reading those huge sacred heavy standard text books and understanding them was quite a precious moment in my first year. The Dissection Hall felt real which I dreamt of. From imagination to being able to see the human form is something I will never forget. Respect to those who help us to learn by giving away there precious body for us. There was specimen of various organs, bones a lot of it. It was so sudden to finally being in med school. I m grateful to my friends and family for always being supportive.
Never ending Physiology.Personally i liked Guyton than any other books

First internal assessment 

It was the first internal exam after which I realised whatever I knew there was much more to it than what I have now. whatever I m gonna study now it's gonna help the patients to save a life! that's pretty cool. Nothing makes me feel more excited than this exam. I start studying, finding new ways like Pomodoro, spaced repetition, and flashcards and I am still finding my way into it. I studied a lot, a lot of books whenever I got time like in classes and back in the dormitory. In my room, I always seen with a book no matter what the season is. I didn't care if I was called a nerd because I am living my best life right now in this book .There's so much information these book holds I even thought if I can ever retain this much??then i realised when there's a life to save I will be there between god and the patient and I really wanna keep them on earth.So I read ,I was also inspired by many on social media . Those exams never seem so suffocating because my friends helped me thrive in college life. Beside studying there's more to it. Now I was fully adapted to the new niche and yes I can survive in this BIOME.

Realised college life is not about getting only degree

Its been few months and I was adapted to college life.So it was time for me to start living college life instead of just surviving it because there's more to it.So it was then I started participating in events and it was d best moment of my life where I was no more a nerd but also someone cool enough to dance too infront of the whole college! It all started to me why there's much more in life than just living. I started to participate in events. Learning new part of me, finding the way of life and how this all works. Took some interest in gaming also. And soon there are three months left for university exams!

University exams!!!!

Arghhhh it was the most hectic! All those things you read and understood.Revised so many times. All come for this moment I realised.

I started my prep but then it was that exact moment in the first year, I stopped studying. It all felt like life was ugly and nothing makes any sense so I packed my unmotivated package and left for Delhi. It makes me see the world with a new perspective and so does my decisions.Though I was on Vacation had to attend online classes.Its true in medicine we just have to read and read and read.It was then I realised how much i liked reading books! I m 20 and it's time for me to be confident and starts to take responsibility. I came back and kick-started preparation.

All the internal exams, surprise class tests, practicals and unannounced viva started to make sense as to which topics to cover and how much time to spend on those to finish this. Classes were running side by side and it was all a huge amount of stress anyway, I did it. Though I seemed to lose in those last crucial months I passed my exam with first division which isn't that bad. I did it smoothly because earlier I focused on more learning than rotting down the book And it all went well.

I am ready for the second year and I am excited to discover what is in this year.

It is quick. If you feel edgy or don't feel like doing what you are supposed to do, we've all stood down there! you are not alone in this.The more I think about it the clearer it got that motivation is only temporary. If I just sit on my couch waiting for some magical inspiration moment in life then trust me I have been sitting on the couch .why do I write this article or maintain a blog when there's no motivation?!
