I'm a fourth year medical student at a northern university in the UK. I'm not quite sure why I chose this particular time to start a blog, maybe it is because my medical degree will start to get interesting soon. Or maybe I am just avoiding the revision I am supposed to be doing for my upcoming exams. What I do know is that I would like this blog not just to be a vent for my thoughts and feelings, but something which might just make you think, even stimulate conversation and once in a while will hopefully put a smile on your face. For that reason I hope you comment on my articles and I will endeavour to reply, it should keep things more fluid. This first paragraph brings up some interesting points: why we do things, procrastination and examinations all of which I hope to touch on in the first set of articles.
