Dear student finance people......

Please can I have some money now? It's been almost 2 weeks since my money was due and I'm running a bit short now! I'm writing this here in my blog because there is no way to contact you by email and I can't afford to spend an hour in a queue on the phone to you (no money yet remember!), so I thought I would just vent on here.

In other news, you know how they tell you that med school is really hard work and there is just loads of stuff to do? Well I dont think anyone can truly comprehend what that means until they're there. Things are sooo fast paced it's untrue. I'm still having a good time though so it can't be too bad.

My stethoscope arrived yesterday too, I feel like a proper medical student now. It's ace!

Important lessons

So, it's the end of the first week. What have I learned?......

.........I have learned how to wash my hands!! I have also learned that sometimes the staff should talk to each other a little bit more so as to avoid timetabling confusions. And I've learned that I love that my last name begins with an A, it means that I'm in the first group for most things so I'll generally finish earlier in the day. Awesome!!

First day at medical school

I'm a little excited, I've mis-timed things so now I'm ready 2 hours early. Oops. I feel like I'm starting primary school again!! :-)

See you later.

Another blonde moment

Well, 2 actually. So yesterday, I had to drive to my new house because my train tickets weren't valid (see previous post for the explanation to that one!). My mum and sister came with me and took the car back home afterwards. It was only about 2 hours after they'd left that my sister texted me to tell me I'd left my toothbrush in the car! D'oh!

Oh well, nevermind. I figured that I would pick one up today (I needed a new one anyway, mine wasnt holding its charge very well). For some reason I was wide awake at 7am so I got up, got ready and went out to go get my new toothbrush. I walked about 25 minutes to sainsbury's before I realised that it's sunday - the shops arent open until later! D'oh again!

Sometimes I wonder...

...How I got into medical school!

I realised this morning that I had an incredible 'blonde moment' earlier this week. See, I moved all my things to my new house on Monday and then came back home (because its my birthday today and I didnt want to spend it there on my own). My plan was to go back tomorrow on the train, I'd ordered the tickets and reserved my seat etc. But at 6am this morning I realised that I've left my railcard at the new house so I won't be able to use the tickets! So now I have to go in the car (with my mum so that she can take the car home again).

Stupid girl!

On another note, I got some great presents for my birthday. Can't believe im a quarter of a century old!

I'm moving tomorrow!

How scary is that!! I've been packing all my things and I'm not sure how everything is gonna fit into the car. Oh well, I'll figure something out. I can't believe how fast things have moved since January when I got my offer. I still keep thinking that it's a terrible mistake and I haven't really got a place, even though they let me register the other day.

I still havent finished my basic science workbook or the anatomy package, I'll have to do that next week, I wont be spending my time packing then so I should have time.

I have to give blood on my birthday next week. I know I don't have to, but I forgot to go last time so I feel like I should. Nevermind - I suppose it'll make it a cheaper night because I won't be able to drink as much.

Anyway, I gotta go finish packing - I don't think you'll believe how much crap there is in my room. And I'm sure it must be dangerous in there with the amount of dust I'm kicking up. Oops!
