A Week in my Life: Monday


Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 14 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have, to put it mildly, mellowed.

I'm not a believer in brushing the past under the carpet. I've written some offensive rubbish on here in the past: deleting it and pretending it never happened doesn't change that. I hope that stumbling across something that's 14 years old won't offend anyone anew, because I hope that people can understand that what I thought and felt and wrote about then is probably very different to what I think and feel and wrote about now. It's a relic of an (albeit recent) bygone era.

So, given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views may well have changed in the last 14 years. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find utterly cringeworthy today.
  • This post might use words or language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate, offensive, embarrassing, or all three.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken, and embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

It feels like it’s been a fairly hectic day today, and I’m confident that tomorrow will be even more tiring since I have to get up extra early to visit a patient in Hartlepool. Recording all of this is also becoming remarkably tedious, but I’m determined to carry on until Thursday so that I’ll have covered the full week, and can make my points on Friday. The headlines: Eight-and-three-quarter hours sleeping, nine-and-a-half hours working, two hours of TV, forty-five minutes web surfing. The good news is that I’ve almost finished my Community Placement Report now – it’s just a case of reading through it, making some final changes, and then printing out the final copies. Then it’s on to the Patient Study and Special Study Module. The details for Monday:
