Lately I've been horrendously slacking and I know it's coming to bite me in the boo-Tay in a few days when finals starts. I put in some effort but not a hundred percent like I would love to. I have this fear sometimes, thank you anxiety, that it will be too much for me to understand sometimes and I won't be able to grasp the concepts in the time, so I just end up giving in only have the effort.
I'm just a little overwhelmed, and very burned out. I have been away from home for a year now, straight! I'm dying to go home and release the tension in my muscles and relax. I have a couple road trips planned but other than that, I'm going to be basking in the glory that is "home".
As of right now however, I just can't manage to let myself get away from the idea of going home! I'm obsessing. An entire year of med school, away from home, can be very stressful and I often feel like I'm drowning. I'm so happy to be able to study what I truly want to, but at the same time I know myself well and I need to just unwind for a month!
Any ideas on how to keep the focus towards the end of a very long year? (All and any students are welcome and encouraged to give their two cents, please!)
