Sorry for the gap - have been enjoying myself away on holiday. Back at work, enjoying it, and have found plenty of opportunities for mental stimulation which should keep my fire burning for the next few years at least. I've realised the importance of having a varied job to avoid burning out or simply getting bored. In my case, that will involve taking on a Masters degree next year, getting involved in audits (!) and stretching myself slightly more than I was planning to. I can only sustain this if I continue to enjoy my job as much as I do right now.
As well as striving to be a good doctor with a rewarding job, I'd also like to get rich. To this end, I am considering my first foray into the property market. I may end up living in a shoe-box, but I can't stomach the idea of paying someone else rent money any longer. More news to follow later in the year on that one. I just wish it was cheaper!
