    Well, if it would've turned out to be a load of stars, I'm not surprised :p:. What did you say?
    Sorry, I hadn't realised I'd been qouted.

    I said that it was a loss for comedy and that perhaps my favourite sketch ever was "Go for and English" an that there was,in fact, no such thing as "Strep Virus".

    Hehehe, no worries.

    And I'm sure sarcasm gets you practically no where with the press. Who knew?

    I wish I'd done another degree or had a full time job before medicine to make me appreciate it more.

    I dont think I ever enjoy it or appreciate it like I should. I saw and did loads on my firms but because its all I've ever known other than school, and I know I'll see more, and the doctors always expected it and more, it wasn't a big deal. If anything, I just got stressed(and probably depressed). Its only now that I realise I saw and did much more than loads of others. And then my next firms probably won't be as good so I won't much appreciate them either. It certainly won't be just me or just me and one other student on my firm next time.

    I go through weeks of working hard and then weeks of doing very little work.. neither of which are particularly fun. And I can see what being an F1 and beyond will be like, which isn't something I particularly look forward to. A lot of doctors have said how important it is to enjoy med school cause there isn't nearly the time to later on. Or these are the best days of our lives. Its not like it's bad or anything, its just not anything special to me. Infact I'd quite like to graduate and leave London asap even though i know F1 won't be great.

    Is everyone else having the time of their lives at med school???

    I'm certainly enjoying it, but it does feel like I'm always buried under a ton of work that I haven't done - made worse by the knowledge of how much I still don't know, and how long the road it.

    I think all medics go through it, though... just remember that there is an end to the tunnel - but it's just a long way off. You're a second year, right? Or possibly third?

    I loved my first year of medical school. Absolutely hated my second, coped with my third and survived my fourth lol. I'm not sure about this year and I have two years left when I go back.

    I'm glad I had a gap year. I had planned one anyway but I did enjoy working and mixing with difference people. And in terms of medical school. I just began feeling like i belonged and that i'd settled in and what did i do? Buggered off an intercalated in another city! This time last year I didn't want to do medicine anymore and needed a break. I can't wait to go back now. My friends (a fair few who actually feel more like family now) are pestering me all the time to go back, and without their support I wouldn't have done so well last year. They gave me the confidence to leave and feel like I could actually do it so i'm grateful to them.

    I don't know how i'd feel about medicine if i hadn't taken a year out. But I am worried about how competent i'll be. I've never been especially confident about my abilities and taking a year out won't have helped that. I am the girl who hides instead of throwing herself into things!

    Would taking a step back help?

    I'm a third yr. I dont think you really know what I mean.
    I've never felt like I have tons of work- perhaps thats the nature of the course here- nor does the vast amount that I dont know bother me too much.

    And a light at the tunnel (cliche!) isn't "comforting". Life is about the journey not the destination. Obviously we're all working toward futures goals but not at the absolute expense of the present.

    Sarky- I just emailed for an application form for the medical humanities course at bristol.. so any advice you can give me about it would be coolios. I (similarly) dont feel confident about it but I haven't much to lose.

    At least your year out is something different even if it wasn't really the course you expected. And I'm sure you'll be more than competent when you get back to medicine.

    I don't know as much about it as the one at Leicester obviously as I only emailed them a few times and got offered a place for intake this year but I couldn't take it as Southampton only let you intercalate between third and fourth year....I'll have a think and PM you.

    In unrelated news..I keep wanting to go and tell people that their sex is on fire. What is wrong with me?

    Well, life may be about the journey, but you can't experience everything at the same time.

    Life is also about sacrifice, which is what is required to succeed.

    But you know this already.
