    It was pretty funny today, at my work experience.

    I was busy explaining to one of the house officers learning surgery that I was busy taking a gap year, and she says in return "Oh, that's what I did too, but of course that was because I was too you to apply to medicine".

    I'm just like FML!! lol

    Hahah, yeahh, I am so not ready to grow up :/

    It does make perfect sense - I literally feel exactly the same. Well, at least there's someone else in the same boat! I think that was partly what was getting me down as well - knowing that I can't call anybody and they'll say yeah me too. But you guys!
    Yeah the thing is all my friends are like, oh but youre so lucky to take a gap year plus you're going to get in so there's nothing to worry about and my parents are like, yes but this time next year you'll be the one going to uni

    and im like... gee that's swell but WHAT THE **** AM I GOING TO DO IN SAID GAP YEAR BEFORE THE UNI PART

    everyone just blocks out the:
    all your friends are at uni. not here. with you. a bus ride away.
    You cant party with said friends when you want to go out drinking
    youre gna be working looooads
    ****ing med interviews?!?!
    you're not at uni when you WANT to be at uni... but to do that you'd have to do a course that would make you not want to be at uni... it's a vicious cycle :P


    But hey ho, we've got each other you ***** about it to :P

    Did you notice I gave you one too? teehee...

    The F1's I 'hung' around with on my experience have always sometimes been funny, easy going people, it seems quite a contrast to some of the consultants, I don't know if its the time or the responsibility that builds them (or w.e, I've stopped understanding myself too)

    My gap year, ahhh. Well here's the plan...

    - Finish my PS and send it to about a hundred people for feedback
    - Apply
    - Go to this orphanage in SA near Jo'burg (OMFG I so excited!) for like 3/4 weeks
    - Endure some more work at a disabled school (which pays too well for what I do) to earn money and have something to talk about in my interview
    - Go on holiday to somewhere like Australia!!! not that I can afford it though...
    - Endure some more SJA as I don't do anything at my meetings lol
    - My referee course! Just remembered that, I'm a be a ref soon
    Oh, and, urrr, party a lot? yeah that.

    I'm thinking about Cardiff, and Manchester and Newcastle. My UKCAT was 675 so I'm not too sure about Newcastle I only got a C in my fourth/forth subject so that rules out most places as they all now want a B, a goddamn B!! WHY didn't I try harder???

    How about your gap year? Give me some inspiration please.
    Also would you mind telling me where thoust applying? And your UKCAT please

    And guess what? I DON'T apologise for how extremely long my reply is

    Oh my that's so weird i had a little cry to my bf about it on monday because i was reall sad that my friends were leaving and they'd be making new friends and i wouldnt be making new friends therefore will not be as good friends with them because of said new friends.

    Plus i dont know if its just me or is anyone elses friends who are going to uni changing? Mine have completely changed in the run up to university :/
    Mine have quite a bit A few have stayed the same, but loads just are too busy to meet up, preparing for uni, visiting accomodation and stuff. And some are ridiculously uncontatable :/ And I know exactly what you mean about the friend thing, it better not happen though! If it does I will not be amused and will probably complain on here about it

    (Original post by twelve)
    Also, anyone know if there's a reapplicants group on facebook? Just thought we should all share facebooks, and through the group might be the best way to do it
    Love the facebook idea

    Im really worried about what everyone is doing in their gap year... loads of people seem pretty sorted ie. have job(s), have something interesting planned to do and then theres me with "get a job" :/

    Anyone else who's on the 'get a job' stage, what are you writting in your personal statement about your gap year? Atm I really have nothing except get a job :/ My mums pregnant atm so I've sort of ruled out travelling cause well by the time I get money the baby will be realllly young and my dads away on a course and stuff urgh why is the deadline 15th oct... could they not extended it to like Jan cause they like us reapplicants sooooo much better
