After struggling mentally with the last term of medical school and struggling to find the right people to talk to, I’ve decided to invest in some cheap therapy… journalling.  A… Continue reading Why I have begun Journalling

Med School Diaries | 1 Block down, 4 to go…

It’s hard to believe that I am a fifth of the way though my first year of medical school. The amount of work and effort in order to stay afloat has been a real shock, but the motivation to succeed is the real reason we get through it.

Med School Week 4: Sometimes you just need a cuddle.

The last week of med school was hard, and not in the way i expected it to be. I was expecting the week to be a busy mess of balancing uni lectures with finally getting grip on the block 1 revision.

Medical School: Week Two

My second week of medical school is now complete! A heavy week of lectures and information overload, it’s been nice to take the weekend to catch up on work without any more piling up on the to do pile.

My First Week of Medical School

Moving Out, Moving On Up

‘When it’s time for you to venture out, don’t let fear have you looking back at what you’re leaving behind.’ Today is moving day! I am officially moving out from home to go to University (take two). Although Uni moves are usually considered temporary; it is unlikely, due to path my career will take, that… Continue reading Moving Out, Moving On Up
