As we head towards exams, now is the time to take a moment to step back and be kind to yourself. You will perform better if you are happy. Also, happiness is infectious, so be kind to others.
First years: Instead of frantically trying to get a perfect set of notes together, talk to each other and anyone you know from the years above you who can give you tips on how best to prepare for exams. I'm no expert but I’ve found it's less about perfect notes and more about the content you understand and can apply in a timed exam. Know yourself and your limits and make sure you are feeling happy and healthy.
Second years: Congratulations on almost making it through one of the toughest semesters in the curriculum. You know the drill; so don't slack off on being kind to yourself. Support and encourage each other. Even though you might be competing for the same clerkships, there is no reason to become isolated. Reach out to someone you know who may be struggling; it's amazing how we can find strength for ourselves in moments of kindness.
Third years: If you are reading this... you still feel somewhat connected to the institution that is MLS, hate it or love it, we are still in it so let's make it the best we can. Spread the love.
