Medical School

One Week Until Moving Day!

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!

This will never get old.

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:

Not even just a little bit.

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.

There are little market stalls on the right selling fruit and veg! Boy am I going to be a healthy med student!
