I’ve noticed these days that when someone asks me what trimester I’m in and I reply with, “Second,” his or her typical response is, “Second tri is rough.” Yes, the dreaded second trimester is upon me. I’ve been warned that this is the hardest trimester at Palmer, and so far it has lived up to its name. However, in the midst of the negativity that surrounds second trimester, I choose to be positive. I choose to attack it head-on. I choose to look at it as a rite of passage. Yes, this trimester demands a lot, but I won’t back down. No one said becoming a doctor was going to be easy. I’m going to earn every bit of that title, and I choose to be positive while doing it.
