Seasons greetings all!! No, it’s not Christmas but it is something almost as good: the start of another academic year!……….. Nah, i’m just kidding. It’s not that bad at all and I’m actually sooooo excited to be back! You really do forget just how much fun it is to be back in the flat and hanging out with your chums again.
How was your summer? I have to say, mine was frickin awesome. Unfortunately, I had to work all summer but I got meet some fantastic people and had some seriously good times so it wasn’t all bad. Also, I got to learn how to make some wicked cocktails so who’s complaining? Luckily, I did get one break towards the end as I went to see Greenday in London with my girlfriend! I was going to post up some pictures but I just saw that one of my fellow blog…..ees (?) kind of already did that. Dammit. I have to say, London is such a fun place to visit. We did all the stereotypically tourist things like Harrods, Ripleys, London Dungeon, Tower of London, Natural History Museum and my personal favourite: THE LION KING MUSICAL! I’m well aware that it may sound dire to many of you but let me tell you, if you get the chance, definitely go and see it. I swear, I was almost crying it was that good.
But that was then and this is now and here I am about to start my 3rd year and things are getting pretty serious. First off, we’re all having to make some hardcore decisions about electives and intercalated degrees and where to do them and what in etc. etc. It’s seriously intense. Moreover, we’re all going to be in hospitals pretty consistently from now on so we really have to get our acts together. Still, though it sounds like hard going, it’s been a long time since I’ve had to do any work like this so I’m actually enjoying it.
Right now I’m doing an SSC in Evolution in Health and Disease and it is awesome. It’s all about how humans evolved and how infections evolved from animal infections and things like that. It might sound like it isn’t that relative to modern medicine, but I’m starting to see how useful it is – particular if you were looking at research.
Still, that’s enough medical chit chat for now. On to more important matters. Matters like the All Bran Appreciation society, who I’ve just been told need to re-affiliate this year to keep qualifying for our £25 a year funding. Actually, I really need to go onto that….. :S. Moving swiftly on, I’ve returned to Ultimate Firsbee this year and am enjoying it so much more!! I strongly recommend it!
Well, that’s about it for now. I hope you’re all having a blast and I will update soon!
