distracting yourself from december

Recommended Posts

long time lurker here. I've been trying to keep my mind off of interview invites but still obviously can't stop thinking of the prospect of getting into med. I found some Canadian you tubers (first 3 are from ubc!) that I've been watching to distract myself from it all. I thought I'd share in case this method works for anyone else too.

the whole point of "distracting" yourself from invites is to live your life and NOT think about med...watching videos of med students usually makes one more anxious, and if you don't get invited you will feel a lot worse after spending time watching/thinking about "what could have been"...take this advice from a fifth time applicant..

I guess I meant it more for not thinking about the dread of invites but still being excited about it. didn't think of your point though...maybe I should stop watching for that reason too :( 

I've lived watching med youtubers start their channel the year I applied for the first time to graduating med school and starting residency...and yet I still haven't gotten in. Trust me it's not fun and while this is an extreme example I don't wish on anybody watching all this before invites come out could make you feel like that on a smaller scale.
