I graduate in approximately 90 days, or 3 months.That is so incredibly exciting, and terrifying all at the same time! I love that my final 3 months on campus are taking place during the summer trimester. This is the best time on campus! It is the only trimester that we don’t have any snow, which is always greatly appreciated. The weather is absolutely perfect right now!
Over the weekend, I spent approximately 8 hours each day sitting outside studying and reading research articles. I know, it sounds lame, but it was glorious! If you had told me that is what I would be doing for “fun” over a weekend when I first started this program, I would have called you crazy! But over the last 3.5 years, I have fallen in love with learning about the latest research and treatment modalities available to the patients I am treating. It is awesome!
I was able to take a few days off last week to visit some family. I spent 2 days in Alabama, and 3 days in Maryland. While in Alabama, Lily (my dog) had her first boat ride. I did not think she would like it, but she did great!
In Maryland, I got to see all 8 of my nieces and nephews. I have a 9th on the way, but I won’t get to meet him until after graduation in August.
