Song of the day: Junk of the Heart (Happy) - The Kooks

Lately I have been busy with leaving parties as all my class mates feel the need to celebrate the fact that they are leaving to university! I'm very happy for them and also for myself, a bit, because I hope that once they are done I can actually revise and do all the things I have to get to medical school next year! 

Today I have been very stressed because I was volunteering with the Red Cross the whole morning and when I got home and I saw UEA's resit policy, which I am not very happy about. My school has said that they do not predict A* grades, but then UEA want me to have a predicted A* according to their website. I have been calling them to see if there is something that we could do, but nobody picked up the phone. 

In less than a month I would be going to the University of Manchester Open Day, I still didn't receive my tickets for the Medicine talk and for now I doubt I will apply there. I guess it will depends on the Open Day as well. 

My personal statement is more or less done. It has been reviewed by a few people and they all say its good so I don't know what to do  with it... for now I will leave it like that because  I have the UKCAT to worry about first. If I have to be honest, I have not started to prepare for it which is very very bad ! 

Oh and also... I have been appointed as head of the local Youth Red Cross which is exciting and now I have to plan educational campaigns for the school year which will concentrate on health and social issues. I think it will be an amazing experience! The first event I will organise will be for AIDS day in December and from now I have to get the organisation going and find new volunteers as most of them have left because there was never taking care of it. I have other things in mind like a platform of support for teenagers who do not have the necessary support to continue with their education, for example, because I think it will be very interesting to work with teenagers who have the potential to get somewhere but just do  not have the right resources. 

My HCA job hunting is going okay. So far I have received 3 rejections and I have completed a Numeracy and Literacy test and I am waiting (impatiently) for the outcome. I really hope I can find a post to start next year after the January exams. 

Next week I have to go to my old school to talk about my UCAS applications so I have to have it all sorted by then.

I think that's about all... not much happening recently just stress and more stress

Hope you are all doing fine!



  1. Well done on getting your statement done...I'm still writing mine >_> Do you know your choices yet?

  2. I just did some changes to my last year one and that's it :P now UKCAT to worry about! I think I am applying to Lancaster, Liverpool, Peninsula and Southampton. Although I tend to change every five minutes !

    Guess we don't have any unis in common, if you decide not to go for Southampton :P
