What a month!
I studied for and sat what I hope is my last exam ever for this career. I am a bit disappointed in my performance- I didn’t get to the end of several questions (they were timed), when I knew all the answers but was just too slow. Its not very clear how the marking schema works, so I don’t know if missing the end parts to the questions is likely to have a major impact on my mark enough to risk failing or not… We don’t find out for 6 weeks whether or not we pass, so it looks like I am going to have to reframe this as an opportunity to practice my mindfulness and stress control techniques in the mean time.
I took the week before and after the exam off to study and then recover. In the week after, I did some major work on my garden- extending and re-edging the garden beds. I calculated that even with my dad doing 2/3 of the heavy work, I would have still moved at least 4 tonnes of stone and dirt over 3 days. And to think of all the times I can’t be bothered going to the gym for an hour!
And I got a fair bit of reading done of course:
- Sleeping murder- Agatha Christie
- Milk and honey -Rupi Kaur
- The last wish- Andrzej Sapkowski
- The vacillations of Poppy Carew- Mary Wesley
- Clinical cases for GP exams
- A second book of clinical cases
- Frogkisser- Gareth Nix
- The King makers daughter- Philippa Gregory
- The Last Wish
the Vacillations of Poppy Carew
