Transitioning into MD2 Bendigo

Summer holidays are over and I’ve had the pleasure of catching up with friends – celebrated PanPan’s birthday, made watermelon cake, made ‘eating lots of food’ an understatement, and had a classic BBQ. For future summers to come, I endeavour to continue my learning on overseas placements. I’ve now moved into Bendigo with my housemates and it’s already been a week of orientation.

Rest of my holidays:

Back for the first weekend – with my bears:




Week 1: Teddy bear hospital, Taekwondo grading, Guitar cover

Teddy bear hospital winter checkup at Chadstone shopping centre wasn’t as big as Good Friday earlier this year, but it was still lovely to see the kids. I was originally stationed at surgery, but moved to multitasking between triage and height and weight. It was nice seeing the diversity of volunteers; I think they were a little short on numbers because it was over the weekend (two days, rather than just the one on Good Friday), they kept extending the closing date for volunteer applications, and they even opened up to first year biomed and science students and above.

Briefly met these two during handover:



Taekwondo grading – another semester, another level up:


Guitar cover – as promised, I uploaded this on the last day of holidays:
