One of the weirdest things about medical school is how awkwardly named the different parts are. First, for basically a calender school year, you are a first year (9 months). Then second year- which runs from August to February (6 Months- although I guess I can technically count this summer, so the six weeks of vacation and six weeks of clinicals make it 9 months.) Then third year, that runs March to the following May (14 months)- then fourth year which is actually a year long.
I can't imagine that this is standard- and it comes up a lot. Ugh. Why can we not name things more accurately medical school? Basically all I am doing is learning the most accurate name for things in and around the human body- why must this be so hand-wavingly bad?

The moral of the story is: I am done with first year, and I am going to New York to laze about and eat bonbons (Or, you know, hang out in the Natural History Museum) for a month. Yay!
