I’m now on the NHS nursing bank,finally. Alex is still in New Zealand,I miss him a lot although I am making good use of my spare time. My ex sent me an email yesterday, the last conversation was one in which I told him I didn’t wish to speak to him. It was a nice email and I know he was trying to be helpful but I can’t help but feel it was partly an excuse to speak to me. He had taken notes from a research group that he is aware of. It outlined studies in the progression to the possibility of using stem cells as immunotherapy in the treatment of MS. Granted, it was interesting but it also has nothing to do with him. I am already aware of the possible successful effects of using stem cells in the treatment of multiple sclerosis.
I can’t help but feeling that he is just trying to keep in contact. I still blame him for our breakup. It wasn’t fair. None of it was. I had no choice but to break up with him. I think it’s the best thing I’ve ever done and now I’m incredibly happy with Alex. I didn’t think it was possible to find someone like him but he is the best thing that has happened to me. As well as bringing happiness to my life, he makes me feel secure and that was something I did not feel in my last relationship.
Still getting used to my dark hair, I think I like it just as much as blonde (if not more). Another benefit of having balyage hair is that I don’t need to get it dyed when my roots come through and I can grow it. I do think that I need more of a tan though.
Plodding away in my postgraduate course. Studying global public health and pain management courses this semester. Global public health is a mixture between being very important and interesting but also boring and dry at times. I think I have a better understanding of global public health in general now especially political aspects and some of the challenges regarding corrupt governments who don’t have their peoples’ best interests at heart. Looking at millennial development goals and sustainable development goals and how the focus for millennial development goals has shifted towards non-communicable diseases. Today we were discussing governance and policy. We were fortunate to have a guest speaker, a PhD student that now works for the World Health Organisation. It was interesting to hear about the inner workings of WHO. It is said to be quite ‘top heavy’ and they have interns who they do not pay during the duration of their internship (up to 12 weeks). We heard how Heineken wish to give money to aids charities and discussed potential issues with this in the promotion of health. I think as long as the money was donated anonymously and Heineken were not using this as a marketing ploy.
We learned about the function of the UN and definitions for realism and liberalism, what a statist is and what a a globalist is.
This is just thought vom for my own records,
peace out 🙂
