baby I'm back

I started medical school classes again this week - this time as a wise, experienced SECOND year.


after a lovely and chaotic breakfast, we jumped right into lectures on orthopedics (which we covered in less than one week). For the first ten minutes, my brain couldn't quite get past the one thought "oh my goodness. we're back" and then it just felt completely normal, as if no time had passed and it was just another day of medical school.

except that I feel rested, rejuvenated, and motivated to delve into everything.
I forgot what this felt like

and its' so good.

"and I flash like that
recognize I'm back
light a match catch a fire"
