Why is Med School So Isolating?

I am so thankful for the conclusion of the semester. 

Freshman Year Circa 2005 
One of the biggest reasons is that I get to reconnect with some of my closest friends. I know after college everyone moves on and has to start their own lives, but some MOST times I feel like medical school takes that way of life to an overly-isolating extreme. I am sure that it is the combination of home and demanding school life for me. I have hardly any time to talk on the phone without someone in the background calling my name or feeling like I need to be studying. Plus, I have very few weekends conducive to getting away for a quick BFF catch up session.




That is part of the reason why Christmas time is great because we go to Michigan which also happens to be where most of my friends from college are from and comes home to. It's like an ongoing reunion. The great thing about having awesome friends is that they totally understand that I have so many things pulling at me, but when we do get back together, it's like we pick up right where we left off.
