Procrastination Fairy

So the daily prompt for today is Procrastination.

I remember doing a sketch show – Manchester Medics Revue 2012 – where there was a Procrastination Fairy. The idea was that every time the student settled down to work (at Portfolio/ PDP for those at medical school in the UK) The Procrastination Fairy would distract the student with so much that the work just didn’t get done.

Thats what I’ve been like recently in regards to packing for University. I move in on Saturday the 24th of August to my flat in Manchester, ready to start Clinical Years at Manchester Royal Infirmary the next week. Its not the packing for University so much as the sorting out all my mess in order to pack for University. Every time I think about packing or sorting things out, I end up doing something else (making my rug, playing a video game, Facebook…etc.)

To be quite honest even this is procrastination…

The banana of sexSo I have had almost zero formal sex education.

When I was ten, our teacher held the girls back at break time and solemnly informed us that we were due to start bleeding out of our vaginas any day now. If this happened while we were in school, we were to tell NO ONE but immediately locate the nearest female teacher, who would provide us with something to soak up THE SHAME OF OUR WOMB. She did not actually say that last bit, but even at ten years-old, I felt it was strongly implied. This was my first introduction to periods.

When I was fourteen, our science teacher skipped over the chapter on the reproductive system. She told us it was very unlikely to come up in our exams next year, and even if it does, you’ll have lots of questions to choose from so you can just skip it…
