Being a ‘graduand’

So I only figured out what the word ‘graduand’ meant a couple of weeks ago. It refers to that weird limbo period in final year where you finish your exams but you have not yet graduated and its the position that most of us final years are in. After 3 years of grueling exams (okay …

What’s On in Notts

Now that I’m a third year, I like to think of myself as a Nottingham guru and just because the ‘new year, new me’ of January might have started to wear thin by now, doesn’t mean you should stop trying new things. So here’s a short list of things to do in Notts this week …

For The First Time

Hey it’s me again, sorry for the lack of posts! University life has been pretty hectic with the many things that are currently on my plate such as my dissertation, optional modules, labs, part-time work and life in general. So much for having a relaxed spring semester! Enough about things that stress me out, let’s …

Fifty Shades of Nottingham

When a man is tired of Nottingham, he is tired of life, so the oft-cited quotation runs (well, almost). This weekend is Valentine’s Day and if your current plans include curling up on the sofa with your buds Ben and Jerry and Bridget Jones (no judgement here- standard Saturday night), why not make Nottingham your …

Hello everyone! This is my final week in Clinical Phase 1 (hospital attachment) and I’m just so nervous about the exam next week. I’m sure that most of my colleagues are as well. Exams; truly one of the things that would make a typical student feel a little bit anxious. Anyway, on Friday last week, …

How’s your holiday?

Hello, I’m currently revising for my exams. Progress is not too bad at the moment. I need to finish one module before the end of today and get back to Clincal Phase 1 – Clinical Practice (the tough one) as soon as possible since this is the one where a lot of people failed to …

Lights will guide you home

The cold winds sent shiver down the spines of the passers-by. The darkened atmosphere surrounding the concrete structures of this town would undoubtedly give a solemn impression to any observers. But the brilliant lights shining from these not-so-familiar artworks on that night definitely captivated the attentions of many. And a young lad who had always …

It’s the holidays!

Hi everyone! I hope all of you are enjoying your holidays. I certainly am. I’m currently waiting for my friends to pick me up and we’ll be heading to Loch Lomond in Scotland for 4 days. Right now, I’m just going to talk about the things that I’ve done for the past few days. It …
