The first day of school . . .

Monday is the first day of medical school, and I'm starting to feel like I'm starting school again for the first time.

By tomorrow night, I'll have my outfit chosen - not too dressy (it's uni, after all!) and not too casual (dressing up is fun). As long as I don't turn up with a steth around my neck nobody will care. They will all be too worried about what everybody else thinks of what THEY are wearing! Does anybody want to hazard a guess as to how many tragics are going to have packed their steth in their bag? Fifty percent? Ten percent? Ninety-five?

Speaking of packing my bags, that will be done, too. And I'll have a packed lunch. I haven't been without a fridge and microwave at work for years, so I'll have to get used to having a proper packed lunch again. Sad, I know.

Just like my first day of school many years ago, I won't be able to sleep and I will be up and dressed before it is light because I will be so excited that it is finally happening. I'm making sure that I enjoy the excitement before I get bogged down in the stress. I can't wait!

Of course, I've yet to decide on the most important thing of all - how to do my hair for the ID photos!

Yay! It's happening tomorrow!

At least you get to puzzle over the ideal way to wear you hair for the next 4 years ;) ... I've been told that my ID card is ready for me to pick up and it has my photo from when I first started uni on it! :(

Good luck.

My first day at medical school was interesting. A 9am biology lab involving dissecting your own foetal pig.

9am. The first day.

One student from my tutorial group left that very first day.

It will be interesting to see what they get you guys to do this century..Ha!
