For the first time in my uni career I've had the luxury of a study week. At Southampton I enviously watched all of my house mates and friends having their study/reading weeks and I have just finished a whole week off. No lectures, no deadlines, it's been bliss. Now don't get me wrong I LOVE my course. I love being a medical student. I cannot wait to see what's coming up next, I don't take for granted any of the opportunities I have but oh my hasn't it been nice to have a break. Constant Reader will know that it's very unlikely that I took this week off to sit in my room twiddling my thumbs, that's just never going to happen. I worked at the surgery, I did some bits with Mum and I had a life and went to the pub to see a school friend I haven't seen in 9 years who's been bugging me to meet up with them for months, and every time I say yes, and then the next time I look up weeks have gone by. I didn't do any work and I feel very guilty about that. On the other hand, it was amazing! Everything I have to do fit into my time. Apparently I can only fit three lives in my one.
Coming up I have sooo much to do, I'm really feeling the pressure, which is why I feel so guilty for not studying during study week. In my defence I was ill for the whole week, which didn't help. I have two presentations, an AMK, 6 competencies, PBL and 2 essays. I used my study week to catch up on my life, can I have another to catch up on work now please?
