I would be lying if I said 2018 didn’t intimidate me.
This is a huge year for me professionally. This semester, I have to apply for away rotations for next fall. As soon as I finish 3rd-year clerkships and a quick vacation in June, the madness of 4th year will begin. I’ll have to complete an acting internship rotation and away rotations, work on and submit my residency application, study for Step 2 CK and CS and go on residency interviews all before 2019 begins. That is so much!
I’m most nervous about the residency application/interview process. Doubts and fears are already running through my head! What if my application isn’t strong enough; what if I’m not good enough? This year, I’ll have to put aside self-doubt for confidence, which won’t be easy. I hope that writing about my fears and struggles throughout this year helps me overcome them.
Even though this year will be tough, I know hard work, self-care, and the support of my family and friends will get me through it!
