Weekly Summary #3

July 16, 2016

Hello lovelies,

I haven't posted much over the past few days purely because I've been physically and emotionally exhausted. If you read my last summary you will know that I moved into a new uni house which isn't all that nice. Well the house has improved slightly but now the issue is I'm (really) homesick. I'm also on placement and my first week has been physically draining. Couple this with my homesickness and I've been a wreck. I am getting better though!

So like I said, I've started placement now I work 3 days a week 12.5 hours which is exhausting. This week I worked Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday (today). It's a medical ward which is new to what I did last time and they specialise in Diabetes, Asthma and respiratory diseases and some mental health. So I'm learning so much and once I get past the nerves it's really enjoyable.

On Friday night I went to a cocktail night (hence the cheesy selfie above) because my besties sister is moving to China in August. So we went to a posh little hotel where we each paid £20 for Prosecco and a lesson on the art of cocktail making so we each got two cocktails. I ended up making a Strawberry Daiquiri and a Cosmopolitan (which was not my type of drink yuck). We also got these cute little food baskets with burger meat, an onion bhargi, sausage rolls, garlic bread and some form of fish ball. But it was the poshest sausage roll I've ever had!

This week I also joined the new craze and I made myself a Pokemon Go account. I've never been a Pokemon fan so I feel like a huge fraud downloading this new game and actually liking it. It's surprisingly addictive although I'm not sure how long it will last and I honestly don't have a clue how to play it. But hey, hopefully on one of my days off I will have a leisurely stroll to the local park and Pokemon Gym and figure it out!

That's all for now!
