Well I am still new, I am going into my third week and don't start clinicals until next week (the 14th) so far the thing I have struggled with is adjusting to waking up at 6. I don't HAVE to wake up at 6, some days we start an hour or 2 later so I could sleep in those days but I rather just stick to one schedule. On clinical days (once a week this semester) I will have to be up at 4:30, but going from staying awake until 2-3 in the morning to making sure I am in bed by 10 so I get enough sleep has been a big struggle. I am hoping it gets easier and easier with each passing week.
Other then that everything has been extremely manageable, but again, it's still early. We had our first exam after one week and I have 2 exams this upcoming week so I am sure thing will pick up more.
Just a little bit of personal advice as well, if you have a spouse, partner, etc. make sure you make time for them as well. The last thing you want to have when you already have enough on your plate is relationship problems and I have yet to meet a spouse that didn't mind feeling neglected if they are in a good relationship.
So make time for them too. It will make things a lot easier. It may be hard when you are tired or feeling overwhelmed but just make it a point to your self to take like 2-3 days a week and go to bed a littler earlier and spend time with them
