Half Way to Becoming a Dentist!

Hi everyone!

Long time, no blog! I realise I haven't written a blog post in over year but I'm back and thought I would kick off with a little life update.



So if you didn't already know, I'm currently in my 3rd year of studying Dentistry. As it's a 5 year course, I recently passed the half way mark (woo woo!) which was celebrated to great extents with an absoultely fabulous ball with all of my year! 



I've also had 2 city breaks abroad this year which has been absolutely fab! The first was to Barcelona to visit my friend Rubin who had been studying there. I had such a lovely time, despite losing my voice and being conned out of $15 for a 'traditional herbal remedy'...


The second was to Krakow as a post exam treat - what a beautiful city! I loved all the street artwork and there were some amazing little restaurants there. We also visited Auschwitz which was a real eye opener and definitely an emotional day. The salt mines were super fun - I licked all the walls haha and I definitely now have super high blood pressure ...


I've also been elected as Treasurer for our Dental Students Society for the next year which I can't wait to get stuck into. So far, I'm loving being on committee - mainly as we have personalised polos and eat cake at the meetings...

I also had a minor breakdown regarding exams and I chopped all my hair off - in the above picture you can see a massive strand of hair which clearly I forgot to cut oops...

I've recently come out of a relationship and now have a lot more time for myself, so I'm spending this time making some really good food (posts coming soon..) and hanging out with my friends! Dental School can be cliquey at times but I feel as though I've branched out from my friendship group a lot this year and so I'm looking to strengthen those relationships. 

This may be a little deep for a Sunday afternoon, but I really feel as though I'm worrying less about all the stresses life brings. I care less about what other people think and if something goes wrong I'm finding it much easier to let go! I'm also feeling much more confident and a lot less anxious about social situations. I do find myself slipping back into my old ways in terms of feeling anxious about various things, but for the most part its onwards & upwards!

At home, my mum moved house to a lovely little home in Stockport! It's beautiful and cosy and I love spending time with her back there. I'm hoping we will go on a few adventures in the summer and I endeavour to keep you all updated with our antics.

I hope you've enjoyed this little debrief & update of my life! I'd love to hear all about any news you guys have too :)
