Post-Hartlepool Overload

As it turns out, two drives of five hours within three days, an exam and some intense lectures are enough to completely frazzle my mind. I am not complaining at having the opportunity I've been given to do what I do, oh goodness no and I totally realise just how lucky I am to be... Continue Reading →

What Do I Actually Do?

It’s my first ever full week on call and it’s kind of made me feel on edge all week. I was certain that once I had my first phone call that would go away, but the first call came and went yet the feeling stayed. I think it’s mostly my own neuroses causing this, but... Continue Reading →

Be True To Yourself

That isn't meant to sound as inspirational and internet meme-like as it does in all honesty. The reason for this title is that it was the general theme of the speeches at an event I went to this week. The mortuary team were invited to attend the Eid celebrations for the community at Ilford Islamic... Continue Reading →

Come To The Mortuary- We Have Cake!

This was the week I turned 32, I think I finally understood how yeasts grow and work was really enjoyable. Not just enjoyable because we had cake, but also enjoyable because I felt like I did some work I was really proud of and I could feel my confidence grow further than ever before. When...

Silly Cartoon Appreciation Post

It’s only a short update I’m afraid today as I feel more obliged to write this than actually have a plan as to what I’m writing! This is possibly the longest unplanned break between blog posts that I’ve had in the whole time I’ve had this blog and it was completely unintentional. However it is... Continue Reading →

100 Brains & Counting

In my around 18 months of being a trainee I have now reached my next milestone of 100 brains removed! That means I’ve roughly done slightly less than that in eviscerations I would imagine, as sometimes I have been in the post mortem room and assisted others by just ‘doing the heads’ as we call...

What’s My Age Again?

As time flies by, I seem to be hurtling towards my 32nd birthday with increasing speed. While I was driving home the other day, What’s My Age Again by Blink 182 came on the radio and it got me thinking. There’s a line ‘Nobody loves you when you’re 23’ and I distinctly remember hearing that... Continue Reading →

Dead Tired, Very Wee Beasties &

I can’t stop yawning, and it happens a lot. I also keep having real moments of ‘I need a nap, right now’ which I think means I’m probably anaemic and iron deficient again as that can happen a lot. I should be better at taking iron tablets but I’m not sadly. I also should be... Continue Reading →

Simon Says Study

I briefly mentioned ‘Simon Says Study’ on my Instagram stories yesterday, so I guess I should explain what is going on! I’m fully into studying for my next exam as well as writing my next assignment, and for this one I need a little help. Turns out Microbiology is complicated, and thorough, and quite confusing...
