I am writing to say goodbye.
Almost 3 years ago I started this blog with no idea what it would turn in to. Since then I have shared some of my greatest victories and toughest losses. But due to life circumstances my reign as TNQD is coming to an end.
Don’t worry though, TheNotQuiteDoctor is not going anywhere. As a blog this will continue. In fact, the last few months I have been gathering writers to contribute. It is their hard work that has kept this blog afloat. Upon my request, one has offered to take my spot. She will be the next iteration of TNQD and serve as a source of pre-med/med wisdom. She, and the other writers who have been contributing, will ensure that this blog lives on.
My life has gotten more complex in the last year as I have begun writing for news outlets and larger medical blogs. My research has been advancing and I am being pulled into larger projects. Plus the ever present step 1 looms over all that I do. This all has happened while I continue to balance being a medical student and graduate student. There are times in life where you reach your limits - and this is mine.
This also feels like a natural time for me to step down. I have overcome many of the problems I came here to vent about. My love life seems in perfect order. I am satisfied with my schoolwork and I have been exercising regularly. I honestly feel happy, healthy, and balanced.
My replacement will be transitioning into the blog throughout March (more likely closer to the end, and I will be around until then). I know you will show her the same kindness you have shown me. We have created a supportive community here, for students of all fields and all walks of life. I sincerely hope you continue to participate and grow this blog in the years to come.
Thank you all for all the support you have given me. Honestly, you, my faithful readers, have provided some of the kindest words and sincerest well wishes. I am thankful for each of you.
All the best in everything you do,
As a fellow “not quite doctor” i have to say that this blog has been so amazing and great place for me to come to when I was confused about studying and how to manage my time, etc. At first I was like “nooooo” but I think that you leaving just symbolizes life in general. There’s a time for everything. And I agree, all good things must come to an end at some point. It’s been great learning from your experiences. And I like the new writers on this blog especially “wanderlustmed.” Good luck on your future endeavors! You should definitely come back you know, just to say hi.
I don’t really get a lot done. At least not as much as i know i can if i was in the library. I end up playing around with my siblings. From chess with my little brother to watching a tv episode with my sisters or even just talking, eating and making fun of people or watching funny youtube videos together… I prefer to do that than to study but then at the same time, I know that I have to keep my shit together.

Have you ever had a conversation with someone and they start telling you a bunch of stuff that you didn’t ask initially? Sometimes people just need someone to talk to. Someone that they think might care about their dreams and aspirations. I have that. It’s nice to be that person for someone else.
I love blk ppl
This is nice. I like this.
I’m all about this.Here’s Davido’s new music video, Aye
The video is shot in a rural setting and tells a tale of love between different classes. Davido plays a poor farmer who falls in love with the prince’s love interest. Aye shows Davido at his best, showing raw talent in a different direction, cultural, and entirely refreshing.
