Holding the center.
I still sick and tired of studying. It's been more than 4 months since this ordeal has started. I've changed my routine. I'm no longer nocturnal, but get up with the sun. I've also decided to cut back on my sleep by 2 hours. I'll be getting 6 hours of sleep from here on out. I'm more determined than ever to make the USMLE plans (for the 2007 match a reality).
The stress is causing me a lot of stomach acidity. I just hope it doesn't turn into IBS. Still, my spirits are much higher than they have been due to the therapeutic effect of lots and lots of praying. Study is lumbering along. Its never enough, but I'm not giving up and am still aiming high.
