February 25, 2011

My dutch boy had his first day of uni yesterday. This was both exciting for him, and sobering for me as I realised I’d been at uni for seven weeks already. The shine of this year is starting to wear off. I’ve lost the momentum I had at the beginning. Its so true that once you stop the hardcore study, its SO much harder to start again.

Combine that with some beautiful women I know having gorgeous babies recently, and being on paediatrics means that I’m more inclined to start daydreaming of stepping off this hamster wheel and into nappies, and curash and baby slings. It seems more rewarding than “calculate this neonate’s fluid requirements”…

Meanwhile, people are being told their loved ones are stuck in a building that’s destruction was “insurvivable” in Christchurch which makes any other problem seem trivial.
