Hey everyone, it’s been a hell of a few months hasn’t it? The general consensus last semester was, “This is the worst semester I’ve ever had.” In the past four months, I don’t think I’ve heard one good thing about it. The stress is always more than enough and somehow at the end of finals we kiss the ground and wonder how in the world we’re still standing here and why oh why do we even want to come back? But the last semester, for everyone, was insurmountable, completely unbearable, so, what better time than to write a post about slightly falling short of the grades you were hoping for or expecting. There must have been toxins in the air last semester and it would be terrible if people quit their dream because of it.
If becoming a doctor isn’t for you and you really have no desire to do it then go into a field that you’re passionate about. There’s no shame in having a career that you really love and while there is initial disappointment in the beginning, it will fade and you will be a much happier person. Forget about the people who talk nonsense about changing, you know you could have done it if you wanted too, but it’s not something you want to do, so don’t sweat it. They’ll eventually come around and support you if they matter. And if they don’t, then why do they matter?
However, if this is something you really want, if becoming a doctor is a part of your existence and you’re just not feeling confident about it; if you don’t want to go for another semester, if you’re tired of being kicked to the ground, then maybe these few headers will help you come back for another round. And, honestly, if they don’t then please email me or Mohammad or Jon, don’t give in just yet. Seriously, I’ll give you my personal email if I have to and you can contact me when you get a chance.
