I haven’t blogged in quite some time, mostly because I’ve been completely exhausted. My first, “Is naturopathic medical school hard” post gets SO many google search hits, and it has not gotten any easier since that post over a year ago! So I decided to revisit that topic right before starting year 3 next week.
This past spring quarter, I had 23 credit hours in a 10 week term. I also had a number of extracurricular weekend classes and went home to Massachusetts for a wedding right after mid terms. When finals were over, I slept 12 hours a night for a week, as well as naps. I was never a napper until I went to school at Bastyr. I had two weeks off (during which I moved to a new apartment) and then I had to start studying for my first naturopathic board exam (more info on that here). Just the other day, I got my results and I passed!!! When the exam was over, I returned to sleeping 12 hours a night and taking naps. It’s been six weeks since then, and I’m mostly recovered and ready for year 3 to start!
Naturopathic medical school is an exceptional amount of hard work, but I am still SO happy this is my chosen career and I wouldn’t ever want to be doing anything else. I am so excited about it every single day.
Planning to get back to regular blogging now
