Death by Revision

One of the hardest things I find in my day to day life is to not feel hugely overwhelmed by simply everything. Not to feel like there are never enough hours in the day. There are always places I want to go to, podcasts I want to listen to, Netflix series to binge and people... Continue Reading →

Pathology Week 2019

It’s the end of Pathology Week and I am guilty of having not done very much to mark it so I thought it would be good to write a blog post. Plus put in a diary reminder to make a much bigger effort next year! Pathology is the study of disease and it’s effects. My... Continue Reading →

No Body’s Perfect

I initially assumed they had made it up and I also thought it meant it was smelly or stinky. Turns out it’s an old... Continue Reading →

First World Problems Indeed

(A post complaining about WiFi that was so bad it wouldn't post until I got to my hotel) Today I am doing something which I have had booked for a while but that I have not exactly been looking forward to. I am currently sat on a National Express coach somewhere along the M1 which... Continue Reading →
