How great it is to be eating a lunch mainly from my garden.



This morning has been all about this song , yoga, and learning to answer 30-second maths questions. Please let this be the last time I sit the UKCAT. Let the gods of medical school have mercy this year.


Good morning

It’s 6:00 and I’ve already been for a run and showered. Now I’m going to work for the morning and then coming home for an afternoon of Physics and Maths. I feel weirdly good about all this.

Mornings really are the best.

Good morning


A couple of months ago, I asked my housemate to shave all my hair off. It has only just occurred to me how weird this was. She also did a particularly bad job. Nonetheless it was great for the following reasons:

1. Shampoo wasn’t necessary. And even when it became necessary as it grew, I needed the tiniest bit.

2. No more hunting around the house for kirby grips and bobbles.

3. It was liberating. I had no hair to hide behind or style different each day.

4. No time was wasted on styling my hair.

5. You quickly find out who your most/least honest friends are.

6. It took about 30 seconds flat to dry, meaning I could put my head under the shower everyday.

7. It is so cool. Ideal for those who work in a 28degree workplace… Ahem.
