Title of Work
Description of Work
Finally, the weekend. Finally, free of the constraints of mandatory lectures and clinical experiences. Finally, freedom to work how and when I want to work; learn how and when I want to learn. The lack of structure is refreshing. I will be so productive. Finally. But first – I will sleep in. Might as well, I am free to do so after all. I am my own person for once. Just because I sleep in does not mean that I won’t master the material. I work better in the afternoons and evenings anyway.

If I were to live there I will probably need new shorts. New shirts. New shoes. Shopping. Shopping. Oh, God, what am I doing? I need to study. I must study. I can finally study how I want to and not how this curriculum dictates that I do. Silly curriculum. I know best. I can finally learn in a way that’s best for me. I cannot study up here, though.
