Brr, it is cold outside!

Typically, the cold weather doesn’t bother me too much. However, it has gotten VERY cold here! We have a good amount of snow, which I think is really pretty. With biase, I admit that the only reason I find the snow nice is because I don’t have to worry about commuting in it. Have I mentioned how awesome it is to live on campus? I know, I know, I have mentioned it in most of my blog posts…

Sorry. Anyway, to show how cold it is here, consider the fact that three days this week will be warmer in a city called North Pole, Alaska than it will be in Lombard, Ill. (four days if you include today).

I guess the cold weather isn’t too bad, especially since the library is nice and warm. I love looking out at the snowy campus from the tables in the library. The windows make everything so bright. 

Another cool thing I did recently was watch a live webinar on how to plan and execute a successful lobby day, hosted by the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP).  There is a part of me that is not anxious to jump back into politics, but there is a bigger part that knows a lot of help is needed to move naturopathic medicine forward.

After being motivated from the webinar, I reached out to both the Illinois Association and the Maryland Association to ask how I could help. I hope they get back to me soon, so I can tell them more about my previous political experience and help them with some of their grass roots political efforts.

My name is Belinda, but I prefer to go by Lindy. I am in my final year as a Naturopathic Medical student at National University of Health Sciences. I’m originally from Maryland and will always consider it to be my home. I live on campus, in the Bucholz building with my dog, Lily. I love the sport of triathlon and will totally geek out if anyone wants to talk bikes or racing with me! I’m looking forward to blogging about study tips, ways to have fun on campus, and all the details of a full-time medical student. I love talking with people, so if you have any questions please email me at [email protected]
