This will be the final installment of my 3rd trimester here at
NUHS. The end of the summer semester has brought a bittersweet
taste to my mouth.
On one hand, I'm totally stoked that I get to move on and go
home to spend time with family and friends and recharge. On the
other, the end means that fall and cooler temperatures are on their
way. A small confession, I love the warm, sunny days. No surprise
there! With that said, I think that I was able to find a solid
balance of fun, schoolwork and side projects/interests this
The beginning of the tri took me way of out balance as I was
still so burnt out from the Neuros of Tri 2 that study mode didn't

One thing I will absolutely recommend when coming out to Chicago
if you're not from the area, is make lots of friends and

at NUHS. That may sound a little funny, but with the workload it's
easy to get caught up in the grind and not have a balanced life of
laughter, fun activities and great friends. Great friends end up
becoming your family away from family so choose wisely, laugh often
and don't judge!
Have a great break!
