48 hours in Wroclaw

Picture this – we’re sitting in my room late one evening armed with our laptops and various flight booking websites, trying to compete with each other on who could get the cheapest flight to somewhere in Europe. What was the result? We booked tickets to Wrocław, Poland for £45 return. Finally, for three days I …

For The First Time

Hey it’s me again, sorry for the lack of posts!

9th of May – A day to remember

Hello everybody, 9th of May was a really great but hectic day. I had double assessments on that day for my CFU (Community Follow-up) module and I also have a Celebration Event to attend in the afternoon. So, for my CFU, I actually fell asleep accidentally at 3 am. I was in the middle of …

I’m an Independent Visitor!

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all are doing fine with your revision before the exams in the next few weeks. My exam will be in late June unfortunately. Anyway, on Tuesday last week, I went to meet my young person whom I will befriend for the next 2 years. I was really excited about this position …

Hello again, It’s weird really. I just published a post this morning but it’s now gone. So, I’ll just write again 😀 As I’ve said earlier this morning, we (medical students in Surgery) got a day off before moving on to Medicine next week. Surgery has been fantastic! I got to help surgeons in Operation …
