Oh March, how I love and hate you. Historically, March has always been a hectic month for me. I would usually find myself doing heavy studying for a block of tests, prepping projects to hand-in, and also taking some time out to celebrate my birthday. But this year, March promises to be the most stressful of all time.

 

For us medical students, the countdown is on for our Match Day. All of the hard work, late nights studying, coffee binges, early AM sessions in the anatomy lab, hundreds of lectures that were read, and long shifts at the hospital that appeared to be endless, pay off when on March 17 (also my birthday and St. Patrick’s day!) we finally find out where we will go to pursue post-graduate training in the specialty of our choice. It has been a long 4 years that somehow have passed in the blink of an eye. I’ve met many people, have made new lifelong friendships, and also have found out who really has my back and supports me no matter what. Also, this last year was exhausting, to say the least, in addition to doing my 4th year rotations, I was on the interview trail going to places that wanted to see if I was a good fit for their training programs. Soooo, to say the least it has been a long journey that somehow starts to wrap up on March. Everything will finally start falling into place and hopefully I will Match in a place that I truly love.


But March should not be all stress. I turn 25! Which to me is a milestone but I have no idea how to celebrate it considering bigger things than me are happening that day LOL. I look forward to the days out shopping with my friends, searching for cute dresses for our many celebrations this month. I also have a couple of posts in store for the blog. More on the things I love to bake and hopefully I will give you guys a rundown of the things I started doing to be more healthy! I really am looking forward to sharing so much with you this month so stay tuned!
PS: I decided to create a playlist for this month. A little something to start off the month with some new songs I love, specially John Mayer’s “Still Feel Like Your Man”. By the way, if you guys have not downloaded his Wave 2 you are MISSING OUT! What are you listening to this month? And what are you looking forward to? Share in the comments below!
