Obligatory back-to-Bristol shot of the Clifton Suspension Bridge
After a refreshing six week summer holiday, I've now come back to Bristol to start my fourth year of university. Laden with bags, boxes and half my wardrobe, I returned to my shared flat and caught up with the gossip, then watched the Burghley highlights and Made in Chelsea. Normal uni life has resumed...
They really know how to get us straight back into the swing of things, starting with being up just after 6am to be ready for an 8am intro lecture. I did at least have the day off from 9am though, so not such a bad first day back after all.
Despite the mountain of things I brought back to uni with me, I've still managed to leave lots of stuff I wanted at home. Fortunately my dad happens to be coming to Bristol in a few days time, so I'm writing a list of things to bring for me!
I'l be starting the year with three weeks of near enough full days of lectures- after a year of clinical medicine this feels like a bit of strange concept now! It will be a good way though to ease myself back into the course though, instead of going straight into hospital after six weeks of forgetting everything.
I now have the challenge of blogging and managing a full time course for the first time since starting my blog. It's been lovely putting out three posts a week while I've had nothing else to be doing, but I think now I need to be realistic about balancing my course and my blog- and of course maintaining (or even hopefully improving!) my blog content. I would rather deliver good quality posts regularly, but less frequently, than turn out poor content every other day. That said- I do have a few posts drafted and scheduled for the next couple of weeks, so it will be a gradual transition!
This should be an interesting year for me and I hope it brings plenty of inspiration for things to write about. I hope you'll stick with me as I adapt my blog to fit with my university life and that you're looking forward to the things to come!
