"Never allow impatience to rob you of what you truly deserved."
― Lailah Gifty Akita (via psych-quotes)
Have you ever felt like you did well on something, only to find out that you did way worse?
That’s what taking an MCAT practice test feels like. I usually do pretty well in school, I ace most of my classes and have at times set the curve. But when it comes to standardized tests…I do horribly. And it’s extremely discouraging because it just speaks the truth. It’s standardized for the purpose of leveling the playing field and showing who’s got it and who doesn’t. Doesn’t matter how well you did in comparison to your peers, now you’re up against the whole nation. This is where you stand compared to everyone else that is applying to medical school.
Well anyways, there’s no point in wallowing in disappointment right now. It just means I have to work that much harder. I honestly haven’t been taking it seriously enough. I’m not putting in as many hours studying as I should, and I have way too many distractions. Most people are distracted by Facebook, but my ultimate distraction is actually tumblr. So..looks like this is goodbye for now. See you in like 2 months!
