I’m feeling pretty damn good right now. Why?! Because I’m moving to my new place next week and I’ll be starting my medical degree in two weeks! That’s why!
No, I haven’t started packing. Yes, I probably should. No, I probably won’t. Yes, I’ll probably leave it until the last minute. Yes, I will probably regret that decision.
When I first moved away for my undergraduate degree I didn’t actually pack until the morning of the day I moved. You’d think I’d have learned my lesson by now but I think through my previous posts we’ve established one undeniable fact:
On Tuesday I hopped in my car with two friends and began the drive, it was kind of a road trip, to Warwick (well Coventry) for occupational health and I started my hepatitis B Vaccination course. That’s right. I’m a vaxxer. *Insert witty comment regarding anti-vaxxers here*
It’s definitely all starting to feel incredibly real now. Literally as I arrived at the hospital preparing to pull into the car park, a security guard ran up to the car to stop me. I wondered why. Why turned out to be an air ambulance descending from the heavens at that precise moment (10/10 landing by the way). I am ridiculously excited for this new adventure to begin.
In just four short years, I’ll be responsible for keeping people alive. And if that’s not a scary thought, I don’t know what is. It’s scary sure, but it’s a good kind of scary. I think. I suppose the fear is part of what drives us to pursue a career in medicine?
I’ll leave you with this pretty cool picture, which my friend was kind enough to appear in, I took of the main entrance to the hospital I’ll be predominantly based at.
