Medical school will take over the life of your significant other — to the point that you will have to remind him/her that there are other things that are important! Just today while talking to McDreamy I told him I was having a hard time trying to decide what to do about switching my major in grad school. His answer was to do the thing that made me more marketable. Which might be the practical answer — but I am not a practical person! If I were practical, McDreamy and I would not be dating!
Sometimes I want to tell McDreamy that he needs to shut down from med school and focus on the little things in life.
