I am currently in the middle of my pre-residency at the program I left 3 years ago.
These past few years have brought a lot of humbling moments. So even as I see my contemporaries already successful, I know that I have not wasted the time I had away from Medicine.
I made some mistakes recently. I am very remorseful, but I shall not disclose details for fear of reopening old wounds. It was a big mistake to take for granted the trust of a loved one.
I will opt to update my friends through my blog instead of through Facebook. I recently deactivated my FB account because it was doing more harm than good. With pre-residency taking up most of my time, I do not get to be online anyway. I might change my mind though in the future.
The argument that we survived life without Facebook is compelling enough for me to maintain the deactivation of my account for now.
