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.
We’re halfway there.
And hasn’t it gone by in a blink?
