I wasn't going to say anything about resits this year. I genuinely wasn't, but then I realised I'd twittered that I was in the library earlier, and realistically, unless I was a slightly sad individual I wouldn't be sat in the library on my summer break.
So yes, I have slipped up again this year and failed an exam. No surprises really, I failed something for the last two years so this shouldn't come as a massive surprise.
Sadly though it is yet again upsetting the cash flow balance, as I can't work as many shifts as I would like.
What surprised me was how much the depression came back with a bang when I got back from my 'break' of a week. Oddly enough, the first thing I did was start taking the fluoxetine again, but it wasn't a nice surprise...
However, I seem to have got better at managing a budget and have been making a lot of my own bread and cakes and stuff to avoid the supermarkets and make the most of my store cupboard*.
This year I aim to actually start making shopping lists and be a better 'domestic goddess' - pending getting back into medical school that is....
Wish me luck dudes and dudettes!
* I swear Narnia lives at the back of my store cupboard. I have never found so many packets of yeast, flour, pasta, sugar and chickpeas as in that cupboard last week**
** and yes, cleaning cupboards and kitchens is far more interesting than revision in the middle of summer.
