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!
