    So today I started classes, this year is going be a little weird to me since I failed parasites last year – I’m basically repeating the 2 semesters of parasitology and taking a few of the 5th year modules at the same time. To be honest its nice to have a chance to breathe, however most of my free time this year will go towards my thesis and research papers in addition to extra time to review everything I have learnt over the past 2 years!

    It does however also mean that I have time to keep my diary daily and to look for some additional funding (I need things like dentist, opticians, vaccinations etc) to cover things that I keep putting off. I’d also really like to get started with a video diary this year as well so looking for a decent camera!

    Anyways onto today, first class of the new semester is Inspection and Control of Food Production. The lecturer is actually trying to make it fun and interesting (this is really appreciated and slightly unusual here!) however its all about the legislation and legal stuff in food production. Today was a general overview of the subject and the start of looking at the laws and legal framework. It is slightly interesting as we are looking at the EU regulations which for me is weird that the UK no longer has control over its own food production as it is done on a European level.

    I guess this is going be a class that is a wait and see, tommorow is however going be a long day with a 7:15am start right through to 4:15pm with no proper breaks so I am going try and grab an early night! Upside is 3 hours of tommorow is all pathological anatomy practical so in the necropsy rooms!
