Books every university student should read

For some of us, there isn’t much that rivals the feeling of cozying up with a good book on a winter’s day. After all, what better way to escape the cold than to jump into a whole other world! Here are, in my humble opinion, 3 books that I truly believe will change your life …

On The Twelfth Day Of Christmas My Uni Gave To Me…

With the first semester over, it’s fair to say these few months have been the strangest, most eventful, but most exciting ones of my 18 years. Seeing it’s Christmas, I thought of nothing better to write about than a nice little festive reflection of those past 12 weeks. I hope you like it, here’s my …

#Throwback

Sitting in the library today I saw many prospective students and parents looking lost around campus for the UCAS visit days. This made me realize, around 3 years ago in February was the first time I came to this university for the very same reason. On that day (as cheesy as it sounds) I did …

Oh My English

Hello again, I know, it’s exam season. So, I understand if you don’t even have time to read any blogs. Thus, I’m going to keep it short (I’ll try my best). Living in the accommodation at King’s Mill hospital for the past 13 weeks (wow, it’s really been that long :O) made me realise a …

Thankful

Hello everyone, Truth be told, I didn’t really have a good start to my week. You see, I was assigned to be at the Emergency Assessment Unit, EAU Ward (the ward that patients go to after A&E) this week and I am supposed to interview 8 patients before the end of the week. But my …

The end of Surgery and the beginning of Medicine

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 …
