meus intuitus

note to self

A year of my life is gone.  I am one year closer to becoming a physician, but this year of medical school has been the most uneventful year of my life.  There is no time for events when one spends over twelve hours a day devoted to study.  I have achieved much, but lived little.  In time-memories density, this year is a lifetime low.

A reminder to future me:  When medical school is long over, residency is finished, and student loans are paid off, take a pay cut.  Live in a small house.  Drive a used car.  Tell your practice or hospital that you will work no more than 40 hours per week.  Take the pay cut and live

…because the people you love will not be around forever and the sun will not always rise for you.
