I have a feeling that the closer I get to clinical rotations, the harder it will be to post here. So bear with me.
Right now, school feels like a long slow march to 4th year exams. We've been doing dermatology for the past two weeks, and I've come to the conclusion that it's probably the only thing that would tear mea way from equine/large animal medicine. But then I'd probably be stuck inside all day and, well, I like being outside.
This week we get our final sub-groups for our rotation groups, which means I'll be able to figure out when I can go back up to Yorkshire/Lancashire for another week or more, and start planning out when and where I want to go to placement for, well, the next year and a half. Because really, when you think about it, I only really have a year and a half left of teaching/rotations before I have to start studying for final year exams. And that's a bit scary.
On a less traumatizing note, my sister has found a place! She and her boyfriend are moving into a flat close to her school in London, which means I have to find a bag large enough to fit a change of clothes, my iPad and my Macbook. It's a relief that she's here, because now I can have downtime without having the constant reminder of vet school all the time. As much as I love all my friends here, it's nice to get away from it for a little while. Even if I am going to bring all my work with me and probably study at her place. Plus, sister time!
