Today is the 3rd of November 2011
It is my last day of university, which started at my GP clinic and ended in the Final year Lecture Theatre with an OSCE prep talk

Now that the reality of it has dawned on me, it seems almost surreal
That 6 years ago, I could barely imagine this day and what it would be like
And today, in this exceedingly ordinary day, my medical course has finally been completed, with only 9 OSCEs to overcome, before I emerge a doctor

I'm in one of those rare states, where I feel so unsettled that I'm compelled to blog, to leave a memo in this journal to myself, for fear that I might forget this moment in my life

but I am excited,
a sunny beach holiday in Cairns awaits,
Graduation awaits,
our epic European adventure awaits,
freedom awaits!

also note, never in my life have I been so unmotivated in exam preparation (definitely a milestone)

I just realised I didn't even bother to blog on my birthday this year
(nor last year really)
but here's a photo just to mark my turning 23

one year on
from a few entries below
and I again I just want to run away
damn semester 11
oh well, less than a month to go
back to nerding

it is now 2011
final year med
the light is near

it's a lazy Sunday morning
and I'm waiting to get in the shower with nothing to do
well, I *could* start reading about ADHD but
procrastination always wins :)
hence another scanty entry on this scanty blog
which I hope won't be too embarrasing to read in yet a few years

youtube video of the moment:

everyday I'm shuffling

i am stressed
i am panicking
i hate exams
i've said this a million times
and everyone else feels the same
but it sucks so bad nonetheless

3 weeks to go

its the Saturday before my last week in Warrnambool
and honestly, time has really flown by
from all the hating and winge-ing, I've actually grown to somewhat love this place
well apart from the ulu-ness and my dingy unit, the hospital is fantastic and people too friendly
but now there's only 2 blocks before Sem 9 exams, ugh

we got to watch an autopsy a few days ago
organs being sliced apart, skull sawed open, blood dripping on the floor
full-on goriness to the max
and the most disturbing part was this weird fresh sweetish meaty smell that I couldn't get out of my nose for the rest of the day
raymond would've died on the spot

am heading off to the island soon
sun, sand, sea!

feel the beat. [5:46 PM]
