Ok, so I've been meaning to start a blog for a while now, just to see if I can keep it up. I've never been the kind of person who keeps a diary but I thought that maybe if someone was reading then I might post more often. I'd like to warn any potential readers - I'm not a great writer, my posts probably won't be deep and meaningful or reflective - they will likely be what is in my head when I get round to posting. Ooh, I've just noticed that its friday 13th - is that a bad omen for this blog?
Anyway, a little bit about me to get started; as you probably read in my profile, I'm a 24 year old biomed graduate and im going to medical school in september. I currently work in my local hospital (i say local - its 45 minute drive away!!) as many different things ranging from medical lab assistant to physio assistant to nerve conduction technician to arthroplasty clerk (Isn't it funny how I can get loads of jobs, but not as a biomedical scientist!).
The reason I can't get a job as a bms is that I pissed off the head bms in haematology when I told him that I was going to apply for medicine. The first thing he said to me was "you wont get in". A few months later my contract expired and it wasnt renewed. So armed with my 'fuck you' attitude I worked my arse off for the gamsat and interviews and got an offer for my first choice course on my first attempt! I wish I could have seen the look on his face when he found out, unfortunately news spreads very fast in a small place. It still feels good!
I'm going to make my tea now, I'll post again with something a little more interesting (hopefully). Thanks for reading.
It's been a while
