Feeling Old

I'm getting old =(

I know i'm no longer the early tween as when i started this blog, and i was reminded of this when i went to the GP yesterday with my collection of ailments. He suggested i have a routine blood test..

..and thats when it hit me..

"ah you've turned 2x, i think we should start including your serum cholsterol levels too" DAMN IT! - nothing wrong with checking everything.. but i'm not sure why i've always just associated serum cholesterol levels as for the middle aged.. (obviously this is not true!) and i know im not quite there yet.. but ah... it made me feel old.. and i dont like feeling old...

ok.. random note over.. back to revision!

I know the feeling :(

I've calculated that if I'm exceptionally fortunate and I get into medicine in 2012, I'll be 27 by the time I graduate(!).

Hope revision's going well :)

I know the feeling! My GP had me do the same test this past winter. :( Better safe than sorry I guess.
