Hey guys, it's Anna, and I have some complicated feelings about the MCAT. The sort of feelings you get when your MCAT is a month away, and you're supposed to juggle a million things (like FINALS WEEK), while still finding time to study. I need Jesus right now. Here's why:

My internal monologue is just a bunch of anxiety driven screaming:
Me when all of this is over:
Kindly throw me into another dimension.
