    I may have possibly underestimated the work that needs to go into planning an elective.

    Reality:

    1.) Turn up on day 1. No timetable and Dean doesn't turn up

    2.) Wander onto Gastro ward. Smells like ****. No-one is expecting you.

    3.) Stand at the nurses' desk for a few hours. Get told by the ward clerk to get out of her way.

    4.) Go check your webmail

    5.) Clerk a patient since you are feeling guilty for not doing work

    6.) Go home

    Passed the 3k word count and I've still got one and a half chapters left of my introduction to write. I'm never going to finish this!

    Three weeks of labs left as well. I'm going to try and resolve or at least get some closure with this lab hottie this week. I'm not sure what will happen but **** it, I'm an external and have nothing to lose.. right!? I think they're marking my project seminar presentation at the end of this month though... and my exam if I answer the essay they set (it's likely I'll choose it...podcasting the lecture was :sexface:)

    I hate that our online lectures are not up to date, I mean when I can find at least 2 things in a lecture that are simply wrong, including recommending a drug that has been taken off the market...

    I think I am going to have to email them.
    Plus I will be moaning in feedback about online lectures anyway because I hate them.

    Do you get it corrected before submission? If y, supervisor will probably cut and slash some bits for you.

    As for the hottie - you only live once! Good luck!

    6.) Go home

    No one was expecting me, no timetable, ward at 100 % occupancy + decants to short stay, checked my mail, did bloods, venflons, clerk ins and then got home at 17:30 wherein I slept for 3 hours on the couch.

    Time of my life.
