Hello Blog-o-tubes!

Friday, 16 December 2011
I never know how to start things like this so I'm hoping this sentence will serve the purpose well enough. Having gotten that out of the way, allow me to say that I've spent a depressingly large part of my adult life slaving away in the IT industry (which in itself wouldn't seem so bad unless you've actually been in QA or Sales). It was from the depths of a cubicle induced stupor that the realization dawned upon me; this shit isn't gonna fly.

After some soul-searching, I became certain of 3 things:
  1. I am extremely interested in Biological Sciences
  2. I love interacting with people (both professionally and socially)
  3. Some other thing to make it 3
Now as we all know;
  a + b + c = medicine
and after many extended lunches, countless E-Mail conversations and tons of paperwork I am officially enrolled as a student at one of South Africa's top universities. Unfortunately, due to a few academical mishaps by my younger, less responsible self (who thought she wanted to practice Law), I will not be able to go directly into Medicine. Instead, I will be attempting a BSc bridge into Medicine.

I will be using this blog to share my experiences, discuss new research and maybe later I'll add features for a
Word of the Day and a How 2 Guide.

So bookmark this page, check back in the new year and wish me luck.
