University Bucket-list: Second Year Edition
These blogs have allowed me to give all my readers a peak into my life and while it has been thoroughly enjoyable sharing parts of myself with you; there’s still a lot left to uncover. Today’s fact: I love making lists! It’s a habit I picked up from my father and it’s one I stick to rather fastidiously. While my to-do lists remain sadly unfinished most of the time, one list I am very committed to is my bucket-list. Here is mine; as a second-year medical student at the University of Nottingham.
- Visit Peak District. How is it that I manage to fly 4000 miles away to home thrice a year but I cannot seem to make the 1-hour journey to Peak District? I’ve heard so much about this lovely place and I am so excited to visit. With exams season weeks away and the sun slowly creeping back out, I’m all out of excuses to not make the trek. This is definitely something I look forward to doing – once I’m done binge watching Jane the Virgin.
- Take a picture at the Nottingham sign. The other day, I was on the hopper bus when I noticed them tearing down/re-painting/fixing up the Nottingham sign. That’s when it hit me. I haven’t taken a picture with it yet! I mean, do you even go here if you don’t have that famed photo?
- Visit Sherwood Forest. When I moved to Nottingham, all I heard around me was talk about Robin Hood. Despite the hype, I am yet to make it to the forest. It would definitely be worthwhile getting some fresh air out in the forest, and maybe indulging in some adrenaline fueled adventure.
- Challenge myself at the Rose & Crown. It may mean starving myself for the remainder of the week, but I’d definitely like to have a go at the food challenges hosted by this popular pub. Time to get my picture up on that wall of fame!
Whether you’re new to the university or you’ve been here a while, there’s always plenty to do in and around Nottingham so make your own bucket-lists and transform those dreams into realities!
