It feels so long since I've been able to write one of these! That's not to say there haven't been things I've loved recently, just that I've not really taken the time write about them. But as the end of term approaches, there's definitely a feeling of slowing down, and that always makes it a bit easier to appreciate what's happening.
First of all, it's got to be the fact that I passed all my fourth year assessments! I'm pretty good at believing in myself and having confidence in the fact that my hard work should lead to good results, but it's still a great feeling knowing that I've passed. This also (slightly scarily) means that the end is now in sight. Come September I'll be a final year medical student with under a year until I actually become a doctor. Help!
Secondly, I had a lovely evening out with a few friends celebrating the fact that we'd all passed fourth year with some delicious cocktails.
Third - flowers. I've really enjoyed making our new flat home, and my flatmate and a friend buying flowers for the flat has really helped with this. There's something rather grown up about having flowers in the house, no?
Number four is banana bread. As well as the banana pancakes I made the other morning, I also used a couple of super-ripe bananas to make banana bread. It's been absolutely ages since I last ate any. Although I came to the realisation that baked goods for a flat of two is totally different to having six people help to eat them!
And finally, the #ImInWorkJeremy hashtag has been a blend of hilarity and seriousness that I think represents the workers of the NHS pretty well. It's been great to see the doctors (and other staff) hit back at unfair criticisms and show just how hard they work. You do an incredible job, so thanks!
It's been a beautiful week in Bristol, and with just an essay to write and not much else to be doing, it's been so lovely to just enjoy the days and take them a bit slower. What have you loved this week?
