On Fresh Motivation / Helpful Internets People

The past two weeks I’ve academically been in a slump. I’ve had my blinders on for nearly the entire semester, studying more than I needed to, doing extra work, and making sure I was up to date on all of my reading and notes. But the past two weeks, I’ve slacked just slightly, and now it has me feeling a little panicked for finals.

But, who doesn’t get panicky for finals, right?

I have a pretty strict schedule I’m trying to stick to for studying, and it’s kind of grueling but in a week, it will all be over and the fat lady will have sung her praise over my final exams.

This morning I sat for a two hour patho review and simultaneously received some responses on a forum for pre-meds that really boosted my motivation. I was already motivated, but I was feeling pretty tired. 

But now, I feel like someone has restored my cape and my Wonder Woman status has been returned.

Sometimes I just need a little extra push to make me feel like I’m back on track and headed in the right direction. And so, I’m off to conquer my finals. Huzzah!

  1. You can do it!

    I’m an M2 also blogging against burnout and the like 🙂 We’ve about a week left until our finals and I admit my motivation has been equally low up until about a week ago. Sometimes I wonder how much “slacking” is based on our super type-A view of how a med student should be… glad you found some encouragement this week and that I stumbled across your blog!
