Living on a Prayer

27 Feb

When I was in sixth form, there was a fly-on-the-wall documentary about medical students. I didn’t watch it all and I don’t think it lasted for very long. Truthfully, I’m not even sure which medical school it was filmed at. But one of the episodes that I did watch showed the third years having their Halfway Ball — I remember thinking what an awesome milestone that must have been for them to celebrate and I remember thinking that such a milestone was a terribly long way off for me.

At the end of January, two hundred of us descended on Aviemore and we danced, we drank, we laughed, and we took a few days to let ourselves be amazed that this time it was our turn.


Halfway Ball

We’re halfway there.

And hasn’t it gone by in a blink?

    Wow, I know what you mean, we just had our ball as well and I remember being in first year and being in awe of how much 3rd years must know. I guess I was wrong.
