|My obligatory first day of school photo.|
When I embarked on this journey of pharmacy school I remember sitting in the first class and thinking, "I have four more years of this! I'm never going to make it." I would look up to the fourth year students with envious eyes because they were almost done with school. Now I'm a fourth year and here I am starting my last semester of classes! The time has flown by! I've learned a lot, but still have a long way to go before I'm out on my own.
I'm a year and a half from graduation and from being a practicing pharmacist. This fact is extremely exciting and also scares the hell out of me because I don't think I've learned enough to be out on my own yet. I know a lot of the knowledge and experience will come during the 5th year with rotations. An immense amount of knowledge will be gained during that last year, and I hope I will feel a little more comfortable with my skill set once next year rolls around.
I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to all of the people who have been there to support me on this crazy journey of pharmacy school. It hasn't been easy, but the people in my life have given me the strength I needed to make it through. I have the best husband, family, and friends a girl could ask for and I wouldn't be where I am today without their love and support. I have a year and a half left, and you better believe we're going to celebrate once I walk across the stage at graduation!
Best of luck to all of my classmates this semester and anyone else who is still in school!
*Disclaimer* Now that school has started you'll probably see a drop in the number of posts. Please be patient with me, I'm going to try to do a better job this semester of keeping you updated and posting more frequently. I can't make any promises though. Once the stress of the semester hits it may be spring break before I have a chance or any free time to write something. Thank you for your patience, it is greatly appreciated!
