So, exams start tomorrow with Medical Microbiology (my elective) so at least I start with (hopefully) and easy enough one!

No news just procrastinating because I'm fed up of studying toxins.

Hopefully my posts will become more interesting soon (i.e. after the next 4 exams are done and the pressure is off, fingers crossed!).


Later!

Sitting in my knitting/relaxing armchair (as I have newly christened it) with my notes and my laptop (obviously) and a glass of white wine, mmm.

Got a bit done today (not really enough though) but it's my elective so I'm okay and it's pretty straightforward.

Aoife is staying the night on saturday, my favourite girl! We're going to get pizza and be girls and I'm going to braid her hair (I jest, I jest) but it will be pretty girly (well, about as girly as I get, which isn't very girly to be honest).

I'm looking for music at the moment so if anyone has some suggestions I'll willingly look into it!

Can't wait till these exams start so they can be over, and then I can start relaxing and doing more of the things i enjoy like drawing and painting (and moving out).

Lots of brackets in this post, wheeeee!

So much drama last night at home, shouting matches with my parents and sister while I was in bed pretending it wasn't happening, I really hate when stuff like that happens and now I'm stuck in the middle. My mum asks me if she's driving me away and my sister asking if she's being unreasonable and neither are but they're not exactly making it easy at the same time. I can' t wait till my exams start so I can have an excuse to be totally selfish and preoccupied. I have a feeling it's only going to get worse when my sister moves to London though. Oh well, I just gotta ride it out I guess.

Gotta go clean all the dirty clothes out of my room, it's so full of crap!
