The Familiarity of The Very Dead

I know for a fact that I am not the only person who works in a mortuary who used to either study or work in archaeology. The two fields are not something that most people recognise as being related, but actually I'm inclined to believe that they are. This weekend I attended a talk at... Continue Reading →

An Adventure in Auld Reekie

I’ve always really liked the name Auld Reekie for Edinburgh. I came across it first off when I played Roller Derby and heard of this Scottish team with a fantastic name. 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 →

Possessions of the Deceased

8 days since my last post! I think that’s the longest I’ve ever gone without unintentionally posting. A combination of life, work and everything in between has been occurring and I can’t say I even noticed that I hadn’t posted. I once again find myself in Hartlepool at the Marina and I really am getting... Continue Reading →

Birmingham Women’s Hospital

What a difference a week makes! I have gone from feeling overly anxious about the upcoming month to now feeling entirely positive. Although I am aware that as much as it can change in that direction it can always change back again, I definitely prefer this new excitement. It does feel odd, however, that it... Continue Reading →

How To Say What Is Hard To Say

Warning- rambling, totes emosh post! I’ve found it really hard to write an update for last week. I’m still struggling on Monday evening how to get it done. It’s not as though I’ve got nothing to say, I had a pretty good and standard week for my job. I got a lot of revision done,... Continue Reading →

Evisceration (Part III)

I think there’s potential for another part after this one if you’re lucky, same warning as with the others. I can be quite graphic in my descriptions so if that’s not your cup of tea stick with my nicer posts. For everyone else, it’s on to the urogenital block! Urogenital is obviously the combination of...

Where can I find rest…

...but in death? Don’t worry, I’m perfectly okay. I’ve been reading Frankenstein this week and a dramatic, moody title for this post was born from the gothic novel. Unintentionally I’ve ended up reading that while revising anatomy and mostly staring at videos of anatomists explaining things on YouTube. I cannot fault YouTube for the wealth... Continue Reading →
