It’s all about me!

This blog shall be a place for the random thoughts that cross my mind, beauty products, poems and lyrics I find interesting and anything else that happens to capture my attention.  It shall also be a place for me to let out my frustration and anxiety and to share my hopes and dreams.  How did the blog get it’s name? Well, I am a bit of a “space cadet” and very easily distracted.  So I thought selenocentric was quite apt – that, and serendipity was taken!

Now that I’ve told you what my blog is about, I shall tell you a little bit more about me. I finished a science degree, applied to study medicine, and then found out my application was unsuccessful after interviewing.  So I planned and had some more adventures and reapplied. That went bust, and so did the next subsequent attempt.  You’ll find I experienced the gamut of emotions from angst and frustration, to joy, exhilaration and sadness during this process.

I had pretty much given up on ever studying medicine when my father and a few other friends convinced me to sit the GAMSAT and apply once last time.  And what do you know, I got in! I will begin my journey as a medical student in 2013, and I’m sure the transition from full time gainfully employed to full time student will be a challenging and interesting one.

So stay tuned for the new adventures of selenocentric soon-to-be medical student, self confessed nail polish addict and recent beauty product enthusiast as she trundles her way through the approach, landing and beyond of a life in medicine. I’d love for you to join me on this journey and share your thoughts along the way, but don’t say I didn’t warn you this blog can be a little (or a lot) self involved!

  1. Finally someone else in med school! I’ve been drifting around wordpress looking and losing hope. Then again I could just be bad at searching..

    Medschool is going to be tons of “fun”. Good to know you didn’t really give up on trying to get into one! Cheers future doctor!

    • It’s lovely to meet another medical student! It doesn’t seem that there are many around that blog anymore. The few I knew of and read have mostly graduated now, so it’s nice to find someone else going through the experience at the same time. Thanks, I’m not quite sure I’m ready to think about the “future doctor” part – there’s still so much I have to learn, before I feel I will be anywhere close to deserving of the title ;

  2. Hi, I’m from a non-science background and am preparing for GAMSAT but I’m finding it a bit overwhelming. Are there any preparation materials in particular that could you recommend? I’ve been trying to go through Des O’Neill’s stuff but its pretty hard going..I’d be really grateful for any other GAMSAT study tips you might have!

  3. Hi Selenocentric,
    After trawling the internet for information on the GAMSAT, I found your blog.
    Its fantastic. A great positive read 🙂
    Is there any chance I could get in contact with you about your experiences in med school so far and how you studied for the GAMSAT? I’m sorry if you have been asked many times before or don’t have much time – just thought I’d ask anyway.
    If you could email me I would really appreciate it (I think you will receive my email address from this comment)
    Thanks for your thoughts!
