I'm Back!

I'm not sure if anyone actually reads this blog anymore, but if they do hello and welcome back. A lot has happened since I last posted (which was November so undoubtedly a lot was going to have happened), so here's a quick rundown.

I have finally graduated from the University of Geordie Land and got a 2:1, so am officially graced with a BSc (Hons) degree in Pharmacology which all sounds very posh but doesn't seem to have landed me a job yet!

Have moved South for a while, mainly because of the reason listed below, but also because after 4 years in the same city at uni and having spent the 2 years prior to uni living in the same region of the UK (the North East) I fancied a change of scenery. Plus, I thought my job prospects maybe a little better here. I'm possibly not stopping here permanently, but definitely for the forseeable future.

The boyfriend I had, J, became my fiancé in April but then became my ex-fiancé about a week ago due to facts that he seemed to be finding a certain FY1 doctor more attractive than myself, so not being a glutton for punishment, or prepared to be made a fool of, he was swiftly dumped.

Am presenting looking for a job related to pharmacology that doesn't involve me working for an evil drug company, not that drug companies are evil (well there are a few exceptions...) just that I know I would hate working for one. So far I haven't really found anything and guess I may be being a little fussy as I know that I want to work in toxicology and the majority of posts require post-graduate training, but a girl can dream, or try desperately hard to convince the interview panel that I can do the job without the requisite MSc after my name.

Other than that, things are pretty much the same. Went through a bad patch last winter and in May but that was related to the research project (dissertation) and then the prospect of facing finals. My GP referred me to psychotherapy, where I underwent 2 assessment appointments and vowed never to go back for the third, I don't think the concept is for me. Since leaving university I have had no contact with mental health professionals and have recently come off the happy pills that were prescribed shortly before the end of term.

I am trying to make a fresh start, I am not sure how far I'll get, but it involves maintaining this blog more.

Nice to see that you've started blogging again. It's always nice to un-earth a new British blog, I just found your blog on a Brit blog directory, as all I kept finding were American blogs :)I really like your witty writing style and have linked you to my blog-roll.
