at the end of it all, i want to say this:
"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith."
FAV VERSE OF ALL TIME. identify with this +++
also, med is ending and a new posting is coming up ahead. i have learnt so much these 6 weeks. not just in terms of short cases or how to survive as a house officer 101, but keeping the faith. fighting for what you know is right. fighting your own impulses to give in to stress, exhaustion, annoyance, selfishness, judging others. this isn't the end, it's just the beginning. keep jumping through the hoops and one day you'll be able to say that.
okay i should really go clerk some cases now. 3 more personal statements to go! i sincerely hope all the other deadlines haven't closed yet arghhhh
