My Emergency Rotation and intern application process is over so now I have “some” time to blog! I enjoyed my emergency rotation however I’m glad it’s over because it was very tiring. I think I pushed myself too much along with the intern applications. I’m still recovering! I’m now doing Rheumatology/Immunology at MMC. Anyway, lots of things have been happening in the last 6 or more weeks!
1. Bob hair cut!
Things being so busy, I was too lazy to trim my hair and keep it cropped. Over time I developed a disgusting mullet which I disguised by pinning my hair up into a ponytail. With intern interviews looming, I decided to get the hair chopped and am now sporting a bob hair do. Not a big fan of bobs (think they make my face look fat) but the hairdresser at Rokk Ebony did a good job :) I think I want to grow my hair out now.
2. Graduation Yearbook co-editor and advert designer
I am sooo excited about this! Mel and I are in the process of creating the best yearbook to hit Monash Medical graduates. We were in Sale last year for 4th year, so it will be a psynch to work together. I’ve also been designing little “business cards” advertising the graduation events which I leaped at the chance to do :) Everything is so exciting — we have a great Graduation Committee and the venues we have booked are gorgeous!
3. I’m going to Austria!!!
I’ve been running around like a headless chicken these past few months trying to organise a Medical elective. I had originally been accepted by an International hospital in Japan, however with recent events I had to change my destination. Frantic emails to every hospital/university across the globe I finally landed a spot at the Medical University of Graz in Austria. I’ll be attached to the Internal Medicine department and will be living it up as an Austrian Uni student at one of the colleges/halls. They are pretty strict on attendence however I’m hoping to do some day trips over the weekend to the nearby countries. :D Gahh- so excited! Just booked the flights yesterday! I will be spending my bday over there as well!
4. Living with friends
Since I’m at MMC now for my Rheumatology rotation, it was best I stayed with friends because they live across the road from the hospital. Ahh the luxuries of living next door to your placement :)
More news to come!
