In other news, we recently got to meet my sister's new boyfriend! Which was exciting, because I've never had the opportunity to haze anyone before. Mwahahaha. We made him walk dogs with us, watch shitty TV with us, put on face masks with us, and we even made him carry his girlfriend's very inebriated sister out of a bar!
If I'm being honest, that last one was less of a deliberate hazing and more of a very lucky accident [for me]. And we made sushi! Sushi that, incidentally, is very bad at lining stomachs. But goes fantastically with lychee martinis. Just for future reference.
I have managed recently to do the single most frustrating thing a person can ever do. I left my jacket on a train. Now, to put this into context, this is my leather jacket that I wear ALL THE TIME. I am/was surgically attached to this jacket. I loved it more than was possibly healthy. And I LEFT IT. ON A TRAIN. ON ITS OWN. This is how David Cameron must have felt when he left his child at that pub. Except worse. "CURSES!', I cursed loudly, shaking my fists in the sky in Preston train station. This went mostly unnoticed in Preston, from which you can draw your own conclusions. RIP best jacket ever. May we meet again in the afterlife/eBay.
After Cheshire, it was off to Ireland [which is where I am now], for my month's elective placement in Dublin. Now, have any of you ever tried to pack for a month's vacation? Anyone tried to pack for a month with an 18kg luggage allowance? Including textbooks and stethoscope etc? It is nicht gut. I had to line up all of my possessions in order of a) weight, b) expensiveness, and c) closeness to my heart. My studded pumps, watercolours and entire skincare routine made it. A warm coat did not.
Dublin update coming soon! Follow me on Instagram and Twitter for more escapades.
