In an earlier post, I mentioned that I was considering dropping out of school and focusing on my writing. Shortly after I wrote that, I took a leave of absence to mull over my final decision. It was a tough call since I was struggling with giving up a dream I’d had since I was five years old, but the more I thought about it, the more right it felt to just leave and start living my life.
As of today, I am officially a med school dropout. …Get the balloons and streamers and let’s start partying, people! Woooo! This is the best decision I’ve ever made! I feel fantastic! And, hey, no regrets either. I learned a lot that one year of medical school and, who knows, maybe I can even use that knowledge to fuel future works.
This is absolutely exciting! I feel like I’m really starting to live my life instead of being trapped in the box known as studying. Time to take on the real world!
