New studying technique

I'm starting to enjoy the library. I'm there at the moment, and I even stayed at uni for an extra day (I usually go home for the entire weekend), just so I can study more. It's crunch time and everyone's feeling the heat. It's 5 days until the exam and I feel kind of screwed.... Continue Reading →

Feeling lost

Does my Grey Matter? I still don't really think so, but I figured that I wanted a creative (or rather, emotional) outlet in my life, so I'm back here, screaming into the void, looking forward to what my echo has to say. At a quick glance, I saw that my last post was written after... Continue Reading →

What it’s like to have anxiety

First off, I should make clear that everyone with this condition (and most other mental health problems) experiences it differently. There you go, I made it clear. I feel it in the depths of my stomach, just below my lower ribs. The burning sensation when copious amounts of adrenaline is pumped into my system isn't... Continue Reading →

Time to make a change. Or 20.

First year of medical school is over. To be honest, I really didn't enjoy it that much, and I'm accepting blame for that, I know it's my fault and I'll explain why. I think the biggest problem was the social isolation. I really didn't socialise much....or at all in the last few months of year... Continue Reading →

Another Saturday in the life

Woke up around 10. I wanted to get up at 7 and watch 'the Americans' for a few hours, but I've subconsciously learned how to ignore my alarm in the morning. Weird flex, but ok, brain. I then rushed to shower and shove the rest of my stuff into the bag, ready to go home.... Continue Reading →

My first community placement

Today I had my first community placement. I've already had GP placements, and a hospital placement, but I didn't exactly know what to expect from this one. On my timetable it said 'Understanding ageing and disability', so I was guessing we were going to go to some kind of care home. Considering how much I... Continue Reading →

Easy tips for getting your life together

We've all been there, some significantly more often than others, where everything feels pointless, the future looks bleak and it seems that everything and anything you could do will have no positive consequences whatsoever. I'm not at all saying that I have a magic cure for depression, but I'm merely suggesting some little things that... Continue Reading →

My thoughts on medical school, so far

I’m in my second semester at the moment, which for everyone except other uni students and yanks out there, pretty much just means that we’re post-Christmas. I’ve had my first written exam that counts towards my grade for the year, and my next one is 8 weeks away. Honestly the day-to-day isn’t nearly as exciting... Continue Reading →

Jordan Peterson: Ordinary people

'One of the things I've learned about people is that they're unbelievably interesting. If you get someone to sit down and you move past the superficial, which you can actully do quite rapidly, they'll tell you all sorts of things, that only they know, that are unbelievably enlightening. Things about their own peculiar problems, about... Continue Reading →
