It's 1.45 a.m., and I can't sleep. Tomorrow is the start of semester 5. I figured might as well do something productive since sleeping feels impossible. This semester is the professional exam semester before I enter the clinical years [...]
I love a busy weekend full of plans but I equally, if not more so, enjoy a cosy weekend at home. Once in a while it’s nice to have nothing to do and just recharge for the weeks ahead. However, it just doesn’t happen often enough! I find it really hard to sit back, relax and take time off so I’ve put together a weekend to do list to fill my mind with ideas.
