The semester finally came to a close last Thursday. And I feel like I have been napping ever since.
It was such a full, satisfying, wonderous semester. My coursework was both interesting and challenging (pro tip: DON’T take organic chemistry, histology, and microbiology all at once) and I really loved all of my professors. Histology was by far my favorite class– the human body is one of the most marvelously complex structures in all of creation. I enjoyed it so much that I enrolled in Anatomy and Physiology with the same professor next semester.
Being a sophomore feels settled. I cherish all of my college friendships deeply, and I probably would have gone crazy this semester if it had not been for them. Sometimes you need people who drag you out of the library to go on spontaneous donut and Target runs.
All though I need to start applying for summer internships and shadowing positions, I think I am going to take the next few days to rest. There is more to life than school, and I think students (particularly health science nerds) often forget that. After all, there are Christmas gifts to be wrapped, cookies to be baked, and shows that need to be binged.
