Day 99 - Welcome to 2018 (01/01/2018)

9.30am train after 4 hours of particularly cold Scottish sleep. This was perhaps a mistake, but it did save me about £11 and a 2 hour wait until the next one. Perfectly normal train journey by comparison to the one yesterday, apart from winding up sat opposite a cardiology nurse. Normally I would have joined the rest of the visibly extremely hungover carriage and gone to sleep, but we got talking and had an interesting discussion about her work in the NHS and how things were going at the moment. It’s bizarre but you hear some absolutely fascinating stories talking to people on public transport, at least in my case - my favourite instance was a journalist who was working on an expose piece concerning embezzlement and bribery in the Nepalese construction industry.

I struggled to stay awake for most of the day, but forced myself through determination (and no small amount of caffeine) to stay awake and get some work done. I don’t want to wreck my sleep cycle this close to starting back at med school. Ended up watching ‘Horrible Bosses’ with my family - not the best thing to watch with parents or siblings because of the overtly sexual nature of one of the bosses in question, but I was tired past the point of caring much.
