    I have the last of my clinical finals tomorrow and then written finals in two weeks. If I pass I'm a doctor. If I fail I resit in June. If I pass the resit I'm a doctor. If I fail again I'm a binman.

    Shame that Boydy bottled joining the CDR. We now have to wait for Spoonsky to grow some pubes.

    Pepe is an engineer and a doctor. Surely he wins?

    I wrote Dr Foe xoxo on my lab coat pocket at uni, so clearly I am too.

    I got into the University of British Columbia's Masters of Architecture program, which is the most competitive program in Canada. It's ranked #27-35 worldwide depending on the list, which is the highest in Canada.

    Made it in first round. 😎😎😎😎😎😎😎

    Aren't you a fully grown adult man? Everywhere is expensive if you're a career student.

    Yeah, I'll be 31 when the program starts.

    I haven't been in school for three years now.

    Vancouver is about 25% more expensive than Edmonton, where I currently live. I won't be working either as I won't have time for it, so I'll need student loans. I've got no savings from working three years as it's all gone to getting my fiancée's massive student debt down.

    What's she going to do?

    Well exams have all been examed. I survived. Honestly no idea how they went. Couple of weeks of blissful ignorance until results.

    Unfortunately medical exams don't work like that. Have to pass every individual thing rather than passing across a year.

    I already gave everyone my draft. My advisor said it was "excellent." The rest of my committee are two old profs who don't give a shit about anything, another one who told me that since I already have a job there is no way anyone says no, and two other ones who have been here for a year, so there is no way they give me any trouble. I'd say my certainty of "passing" is about 99%. I'll still have to do my presentation (things work a bit differently in engineering,) spend an hour fielding their TOUGH questions, and then I'll be good to go.

    They said mine was excellent, so I said 'I know', and then I think they were too shit scared to ask me half the questions they originally wanted to.

    Somebody claiming to be a Greek army officer e-mailed my old supervisor asking him to ask me for a copy of my 'highly praised book' which he needs for his thesis to earn a promotion but apparently can't buy with his credit card (something something Greek economy). I don't have any spare copies, but I'll send him a link to the actual thesis. What?

    UPDATE: Greek in question appears to have posted similar sob stories elsewhere. Unless he has been in officer training for seven years (learning that queer march they have), it sounds like shite. Whatever. I'll still send him it.

    Passed the written, failed the clinical. As expected to be honest, although I can't pretend that I wasn't hoping I might have just sneaked it.

    Oh well. Onto resits.

    Shit one. I'm sure you'll pass the resits.

    If (when) you do, is that you finished? Do you still want to be a doctor any more?

    If/when I do that is indeed me finished, and I would start work as a doctor in August.

    I want to at least give it a go. Looking at friends, I think being honest with myself I'm not sure I have enough MEDSIN IS MY PASHUN in me to put up with how shit life will probably be for the next few years. Long-term if I got where I want to go (being a paediatrician) I can see myself happy, but it's a lot of years of sacrifice away. Maybe I'll end up loving it, IDK.

    If I start and I hate it I'll find something else. Medicine degree is a good thing to have in the jobs market, or so people like to tell you at least. Might get me on the Lidl graduate scheme at least.

    To be fair most Greeks want to read Lewis' book, but we don't have the money so we got to come up with stuff like that.

    UPDATEUPDATE: I e-mailed him the link to actual thesis and said I would answer whatever questions he had, and he replied - three times - thanking me and asking me to send him what spare books I do have about the British nuclear deterrent (which is also none). Nigerian scammer. But wait. He also included a Greek postal address with a description of what the street/place names mean.

    When I was nine my grandad, who was an engineer on merchant ships, set me and my brother up with some similarly-aged pen pals in Ghana where he did some of his work. Why I don't know, but their surname was Yorke so he mugged us right off telling us that they were related to Dwight Yorke (we told everyone at school as well like cunts). Anyway, after two letters of generic 'Haha no lions here mate' pleasantries we got identical letters asking us for money and - weirdly specific for a relief appeal - a fucking walkman.

    He's apparently been dogged by rumours since the eighties that he had/has another family somewhere in Africa, so it's hard to know what to make of it all (I should say that he is actually my step-grandad, but I once made a big deal about that being a stupid term so I have to live with it).

    Ah yeah, read the quotation first from the notifications and then the posts so that messed up my thought.

    I have no idea what's up with that other than it being a tradition and that it's really not easy to pull off.

    Do the hard yards for a few years and then relocate somewhere they pay you an awful lot more than the NHS.

    I had a friend who has just been made up to consultant and he was offered* about 5 times his salary to come over here (and do basically nothing).

    *he is/was based in a hospital where doctors from over here sometimes go and he was tapped up by a consultant, but never followed it up.
