This blog will help keep me accountable and I will keep my progress on here. It'll also help if I am not studying as I will be very honest and feedback honestly so if I am slacking I can feedback and do something good about it. I'll also detail when I need a break and when I need to take some time out because it can get pretty intense.

- I read about 3 hours worth of endocrinology in the library from the OHCM, it was useless and I've forgotten all of it. I think the OHCM is a useless resource and I need to find a better resource. Maybe Alistair Scott's notes.
-I practiced the thyroid examination. It's pretty piss but I should take it more seriously otherwise I forget silly steps and that will affect the mark.
-I think this evening I want to pick one topic and absolutely smash it. I will choose infectious diseases. I will do passmed questions and try to finish them and consolidate my knowledge by going through infectious diseases notes tomorrow morning.
- Tomorrow evening I am planning to go cinema so the daytime I should work all day.
- Also go running in the morning first thing.

Good morning,

Yesterday was fairly productive and I'm pleased. Cinema plans have been postponed to Wednesday so that's fine.

Things I want to complete today. 150 passmedicine questions.
Consolidate knowledge by reading notes.
See if I can cram in a 15 cardio examination just to refresh my memory.
Go on a run.
Go to the GP (find out if it's open? edit - it's not, Monday morning then)
Still wondering how much socialising I should do and whether once a week is enough or maybe I should do more.
Imma start the day with 15 minutes of mindfulness!

What does this acronym PACES stand for btw? Clearly a rip off from MRCP Part 2 clinical PACES?!

In MRCP it stands for Practical Assessment of Clinical Examination Skills, I can only assume it's the same.

Thanks man, yeah PACES mean the same thing as in MRCP. We have a much bigger focus on investigation and management than Paces, they're supposed to be fairly tough but managageable.

went to sleep late last night. I was watching rap battles; it's a fairly ****ing cool art. Watch this brothers and sisters: https://youtu.be/1HcjEMMaqfo

however I can't stay up late every night. I'll be sleepy the next day, as I am today and it kills productivity and focus levels.

However with regards to revision yesterday was very good. I'm aiming for the same again today. 150 pass medicine questions. I'm not sure about the topic but I'll report this evening what I did. Also another examination this evening. if I have time, open CAAES for PACES and go through the section on respiratory cases later in the evening.

If I find I have no time for Cases for Paces, tomorrow I will switch from 150 questions to 100 and get CfP done. Aight laters.

I was sleepy today. So my productivity was a bit ****. I procrastinated til 4pm doing **** all but that's fine I think. I'm going to sleep earlier today (2am lol) so hopefully tomorrow feels less of a drag.

I did 91 questions on renal medicine. That's pretty good going, a solid 6 hours of work.
Then in the evening I practised the respiratory examination. I did it fairly confidently and competently so that felt good. It's good having supportive people around you.

Hopefully tomorrow ill be better with respect to feeling less rough!

I'm hoping to more than half of the gastroenterology questions which is more than 120 questions. More than that and I'm happy. If I do all 250 questions I'll be proper gassed. We'll see. xxxx

I'm also thinking about what I want to specialise in. It changes every 2 days, please send advice and help.

I woke up at 11:00, had to leave the house at 13:00 to be at Dalston for an appointment so I didn't have much time for study. Got home at 17:00 and started work at 19:00. I pissed around for about 4 hours today and I wonder what to do about this. If I don't want to study, that's fine but wasting time on the internet is not very high yield for life. I will be more careful in the future.

I did 55 questions, which took around 5 hours. Reasonable pace. I finished about half of haematology.

I want to finish all of Haem tomorrow and then the rest of oncology. About 100 questions.

Then abdo examination in the evening and open up CASES 4 PACES.

Go for run in morning and sort out the ******** of every day life for an hour. Make a list at least.

50 EMQs

I was out 'til 5pm which I forgot last night before I made my plans so I started work at 7pm. This meant I could only do 50MCQs which is ok but not fantastic. I'm happy with my progress and time spent working but tomorrow I have the whole free for sure so I'm going to smack it out the park. I'm happy.

Aight. So I banned myself from procrastination for like 2 months and I've done a tonne of revision. I've got 1 week to PACES and I'm procrastinating. It's been so intense and I'm exhausted. I'm back here because I need to plan out my revision for the next week and hold my self accountable.

plan for today is. I want to be ready for medical paces tomorrow. Cardio. Resp. Neuro. Short cases. History station. all done by the end of today. I've practiced the cardio exam and sorta done aortic stenosis but I want the whole thing done properly. let's get it.
