Tales from my life

Done and Dusted

And just like that... only five years after starting a three year Masters program (Lord. I did have a kid and relocate internationally, twice, in that time. Not that I need to justify taking 'longer'. I just, you know, wanted to)... Anyway, I finished. All done! Well....

China calling

I am deep in acupuncture study at the moment, as I'm about to head to RMIT for mid-year exams, then almost immediately off to Guangzhou for an internship at a TCM* hospital. Am excited! Am bamboozled. But, I'll get there! Integrating all this new information into my...
