Little Things I've Loved This Week #32

Little Things I've Loved This Week 32

It's been a pretty special one this week because it's the week I finally graduated! Five years of medical school has been great, but it was wonderful to finally make it to the end. There's also been a fair bit of organising to do, ready for moving house next week. So here are the little things making me smile this week:

Seeing all my friends proud to be graduating as doctors. I can hardly count graduating as a 'little' thing (although I definitely loved it!), but seeing my Facebook timeline fill with photos of newly graduated doctors was so special. Everyone worked incredibly hard to get here so it was wonderful to see everyone so happy!

Going to a spoken word performance on Wednesday night. I'd probably have laughed if you'd told me a few years ago that I'd go to something like this and actually enjoy it, but it was great! The professional poets were brilliant, with funny and thought-provoking poems and I'd definitely go again.

Vanessa Kisuule's "A Malleable Personal Manifesto". Vanessa was one of the poets who performed and this piece in particular deserved it's own mention. A list for life, a lot of it was very relatable and there are certainly some great lines to live by. I've linked to a video of it, or you can find the words here: A Malleable Personal Manifesto.

Being in an air conditioned hotel room on the hottest night of the year. I really, really appreciated the air conditioning the night before my graduation!

Picking up the keys to my new flat. I haven't properly moved in yet, but I'm really happy to have everything sorted and I'm excited about living there.

Reaching 300 Twitter followers. I know this sounds like nothing, but I actually only set up a dedicated blog Twitter account about a month and a half ago so I'm pleased it's growing! It also means I'm getting much more traffic from Twitter now because I 'm happier about promoting on this account, and pretty much all the followers follow for the blog and nothing else.

What have you been loving this week? I'd really like to know!
