Happy 100 Days of Lockdown! // 3rd Year Medical Student

Hiya! Today's Tuesday 30th June 2020. As far as things go, I've had an incredibly average day today. In fact, if Alex Jones hadn't mentioned it on The One Show this evening, I probably wouldn't have realised that it's officially the 100th day of lockdown in the UK. Shot on my iPhone. When I heard… Continue reading Happy 100 Days of Lockdown! // 3rd Year Medical Student

Mushroom Tagliatelle and Homemade Chips // Cook With Me #06 + #07

Hiya! Welcome back to 'Cook With Me', where I'm attempting 12 (hopefully easy) recipes that I’ve never tried before. This time, it was a two for one deal (clearly my confidence is growing). I started off with a mushroom tagliatelle, then added some homemade chips to serve as a side dish.

Aubergine and Courgette Lasagne // Cook With Me #05

Hiya! Welcome back to 'Cook With Me', where I'm attempting 12 (hopefully easy) recipes that I’ve never tried before. This time, I was attempting a Jamie Oliver recipe. Given that his style of cooking is rather 'rough and ready', I thought his recipes would be fairly easy to recreate. With a few of my own… Continue reading Aubergine and Courgette Lasagne // Cook With Me #05

Farming, Floating and (putting myself) Forward // Week #079

Hiya! This week, I faced one of my most dreaded topics in medical school - neurology. Using my incomplete medical degree, I've diagnosed myself as having some kind of 'neurophobia'. Honestly, I just seem to strongly dislike it. To illustrate my point, let me tell you what happened at on Monday morning. I'd just gone… Continue reading Farming, Floating and (putting myself) Forward // Week #079

Adenoma, Apples and Applying knowledge // Week #077

Hiya! This week, we learnt about the endocrine hormones. We did a lot of this content last year, but at the time, I must admit that quite a bit of it went over my head! Luckily, we had a brief recap over the physiology this week before diving into the different conditions. The focus for… Continue reading Adenoma, Apples and Applying knowledge // Week #077

Urine Output, Unique Symptoms and (being) Uncomfortable // Week #076

Hiya! This week, we've been learning all about renal medicine and urology. If last week was all about faeces, well, this week was all about urine! Since starting medical school, it's safe to say that I've become a lot more comfortable with bodily fluids and functions. Considering my future career, that seems to be quite… Continue reading Urine Output, Unique Symptoms and (being) Uncomfortable // Week #076

Perforation, Pace and Project Parties // Week #075

Hiya! This week, our focus shifted down towards the abdomen (and what can go wrong with it). Undeniably, the abdomen was my favourite part of anatomy to learn. Essentially, it's a box with lots of stuff in it. If you want to know what can go wrong with this 'box', then you just need to… Continue reading Perforation, Pace and Project Parties // Week #075

Metabolic Alkalosis, Movies and Mexico // Week #074

Hiya! This week, our online topic focused on respiratory medicine, entitled 'I can't catch my breath'. From asthma all the way to lung cancer, we pretty much covered every major lung conditions in between the two! We started off as usual with a series of PowerPoints and guided seminars, which I really enjoyed. My favourite… Continue reading Metabolic Alkalosis, Movies and Mexico // Week #074
