joyous insomnia

leave a comment »

I need to stop working out at 9:00 PM.  It definitely interferes with my falling asleep.  Yet I am not very bothered by my temporary insomnia tonight.  For the last hour, I have been lying in bed being nothing but excited about life.

I absolutely love medical school.  My mind has stimulation, my life has direction, my days have purpose.  There is nowhere else in the world that I would rather be right now.  There is no joy like that of a deliberate and profound life in execution—not clubs, not whores, not all the luxury in the world.

I am happy not only for my current situation, but also for things to come.  I will be applying to an international medical student exchange this summer.  I’m looking to do neurology or oncology research in the Czech Republic.  It’s an incredible opportunity.  A foundation of purpose for an incredible experience abroad.

Beyond that, I am looking forward to a rewarding career in neurology or oncology.  These are my current specialty interests.  Why I feel they are fit for me I will write about in depth another time.  In short, their practice involves fair hours, fair compensation, and ample opportunity for me to listen, analyze, and empathize.

No joke.  I’m having the time of my life in medical school.
