A Week in My Life

close

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  • Factual information might be outdated.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...

A very good friend of mine has decided to take some time out from the medical course for the time being. Discussing this decision, my friends and I came to the conclusion that people who have not previously experienced a medical degree course do not appreciate quite how intense it is. So, in something of a departure from my normal blogging activities, I’m going to try and post a detailed blog of what I do during each hour of each day for the next week, starting a midnight just passed. I will upload a new post for each day, with my activities for each hour listed. This could, of course, backfire horrifically and make me realise that I actually spend an awful lot of time dossing about, but at least that will make me feel more relaxed. So keep an eye out for these special posts, or click on the category “Week in My Life” to see only these posts as they are added. And I offer my apologies in advance if I get fed up with this idea before the week’s out!
