2 more weeks and back to studying. I'll admit that I feel the most empowered to study when I'm at the library though. I have found that being in an environment conducive of studying feels natural. I read something interesting on mommd.com regarding the decision to stay on campus a few days a week in med school and a few days a week at home. I think it is a great idea. There was a med student who was a wife and a mom. She saw that the time she required to study in med school was limited at home so she was smart enough to take extra loans to pay for on-campus housing that she used 4-5 days a week. Let's just be frank....MED SCHOOL IS NOT A JOKE. Study time required is enormous....It's been said that the work its self is not hard but the sheer volume is what makes it challenging. I can only imagine that coupled with the fact that they are advanced science concepts that require more uninterrupted concentration. Given my current situation...SOUNDS LIKE A DEAL FOR ME.....INFACT, I LOVE IT.... The thing that makes school hard as an mom and wife is the NEVER ENDING RESPONSIBILITY......I also know that anyone serious can do well if they have adequate time to study and less outside pressure and stress.
I really enjoy my quiet time at the library because it helps me focus on me and restrategize when necessary. I have learned a few things about myself last year. I require additional time to study for things that may take longer to comprehend or things that are new or may present challenges... This may require more planning.
