Things I no longer have to worry about on a daily basis:
Ross' island campus
Crabs...everywhere...in rivers, oceans, streets
"The Shacks" a.ka. dysentery dining
THINGS I WILL MISS:
So many rainbows, every time it rains!
These little (big) guys
Hand made bonfires on the beach, biolumenescent plankton in the ocean at night
Amazing sunsets over the Caribbean Ocean each day
Having passed my last year of basic sciences (first 2 years completed) I have moved to Miramar, Florida to complete my Pre-Clinical Semester and prepare for the first Board Exam.
I am currently studying for the COMP exam, a comprehensive exam we are required to pass before being allowed to take the USMLE Step 1 (first Board Exam). I have only had enough spare time to set up my apartment and figure out where the grocery store and main campus is. I have not had the chance to go to Miami beach or any other nearby beach. I am excited to explore the beach, Miami, and the Everglades once this test is over. I really hope I pass/do well, as this has some minor influence on my future Clinical Rotation placements.
Basically life is no different than the island (apart from the obvious First world differences) because I still have that same crazy study schedule and have little time for myself. I am hoping this will change when the COMP is over and I can fully return to being "human".
I haven't decided if I will start a new blog or continue this one since I am no longer on the Island.
