Hey everyone! Happy summer!
M1 year ended just a few weeks ago, but it feels like it’s already been so long. I had a great first year at Michigan Med, but especially towards the end I started looking forward to summer. It’s finally here, and it’s great. Days are slower, I can finally indulge in long naps, and the weather is beautiful. So many classmates have already left for amazing locations, from South America to Africa to Southeast Asia, but for most of the summer I will be staying in Ann Arbor. I’m happy to do so, though. I’m doing research with a great PI with whom I’ve worked in undergrad, and I have time to cook and read in my spare time. On top of everything, Ann Arbor is beautiful around spring-summer. Everything is so green!
The only thing that makes me nervous is the idea that this is my last summer. After M1 year, med school doesn’t offer any summer vacations. I feel like I should be taking advantage of every minute, so I’m trying to do what I can. Today, for example, I painted my fingernails for the first time in five years. Carpe diem, people.
Talk to you all soon,
