22:38: This may be the last "study progress" journal entry I write.
I'm so sick of studying. I'm so sick of learning things people already know without putting the knowledge to use.

21:54: Medical school is the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life, so I guess that makes sense why it would be the most stressful, and maybe why I'm the most depressed.
And the reward for it being hard is just that I know more things. And in a couple years I'll actually be helping people. But I don't really want to do something this hard and not feel any reward from it for years. If I'm going to be working this hard I want to see results sooner. I mean I already went through 4 years of undergrad not helping anyone, except then I at least did some research.
Should have just gone into nursing in undergrad I guess.

Just trying to play zoo tycoon 2 on a mac people, that's all.

13:28: So I failed a few classes, because like you guys know, I mostly stopped studying. So I might have passed micro maybe. I had expected to pass physio but the shelf was really hard and I failed it. I have no idea how I did on the GI physio exam that we took before the shelf either.
The end of the year party was nice. I went. I talked to everyone.
I mean like I've probably said on here a few times, we don't even have a course in psychology. We have a clerkship/rotation. But there's basically no emphasis on treating a patient's mental health. Which is totally stupid because 1/4 of all people receiving primary care have some sort of mental disorder, and I think I read 1/3 of those patients do not receive a diagnosis. Maybe the 1/4 and 1/3 are switched up.
Anyway, I'm not going back to medicine. It's not a healthy environment, I'm more interested in interacting with and spending time with patients than I am in knowing every single molecular detail about them, and I just don't want to study that rigorously. I don't enjoy studying.
So yeah. That's the end of my study progress journals. I'll be going back to my normal occasional blog posts here and there, and will probably go back to writing in my personal journal more. I need to work on my resume.
