A month tomorrow my new life begins. A month tomorrow I pack my life into bags and boxes, fill my little blue car up to the brim with all the things I think I am going to need, and drive to my new home. My new journey. And I cannot wait!
A month tomorrow, I leave Bristol and drive the 3 hours to Cambridge and move into my beautiful new flat. Which means I have a month to stock up on all the things I’m going to need, from bedding and crockery (because my sets from when I did my first degree are, frankly, a little rough around the edges now!) to stationery and really ugly shoes (all the comfy shoes recommended for hospital placements are so so ugly! Come on Louboutin’s can’t you make a vaguely attractive and super comfy shoe for working in a hospital?!)
I’ve got also many lists of all the things I need to buy – so many things I need….and a whole separate list of things I’m lusting over, don’t really need but will probably end up buying anyway! (You know exactly what I mean!)As the date gets closer, it is all starting to feel even more real, I actually think I’ve started to believe that I am going to be training to become a midwife (I think the huge pile of textbooks on my desk is probably helping with that realisation too!) I’m also becoming incredibly impatient. I am so excited for this new adventure. My little flat is going to be adorable (I’ll do a flat tour once I’m in and unpacked too!) and Cambridge is such a gorgeous city, I just can’t wait to explore more! I just can’t wait to get started now – it feels like time has slowed down and I’m counting the days until I can start packing up my little car!

Argh, I'm so excited for you! I'm starting my mental health nursing course in September as well – and in Oxford. So odd how similar our stories are :P. I'd love to hear more from you and if you fancy exchanging letters or e-mails about our transition from arts to healthcare that could be really fun.
Best of luck with it! You look like you're getting really sorted for it. The pre-course meeting seems like a super idea 🙂
