Hey everyone! How are you all? I hope your week has gone well so far.
It’s been a busy but good week for me as always. I’ve had 15 lectures, clinical skills session, placement, a pharmacology practical, work and BME advocate meetings. As always I’m behind but I try not to let that stress me out.
Today I want to get some lectures made into notes and review some content from my previous block. I’ve got a practical exam on Monday so I’m going to practice for that this weekend but-as it’s just a practice run- I’m not going to spend too much time on it.
Anyway, here are a couple of pages from my anatomy lecture notes (yes I’m doing these three weeks late but I’ve done them now so it’s all good 😂)
Also, if anyone has any good tips on keeping up with everything/organisation/studying med tips/exams etc , let me know! I love trying out new ways.
I’m content and happy lately. I think it’s cause the sun finally came back and I can sit outside or leave the kitchen door open while I cook or clean. Or cause I can put laundry up outside.
But I’m also homesick. Almost a year since I left Austria and I’ve only been back one time. Which is okay, we’ve been busy and are only just settling down. But still, when I was there I didn’t have as much time as I liked and trying to see everyone was super hectic. Worth it tho.
But yeah, homesickness is real and I miss my sister and friends and the country. The bresd and markets and different spreads we got. Taking day trips to vienna whenever I felt like it, or visiting one of my favourite places a few minutes from home.
Been thinking about my childhood as well, mostly the nice things though 😊
I’m aware that homesickness is part of moving to a different country and I am allowing myself to feel all the feels without labelling them as good or bad. They show that not everything back home was bad. Lots of good things and people.
