So if you know me then you know that I love, love, LOVE Boston. As Dr. Boyfriend points out it was my first real city to fall in love with so it has a special place in my heart. (And bonus we met and fell in love there too.) Anyhow, I spent the weekend in the Boston area and got to relive all my favorite Boston memories with a good friend from undergrad. Drive down Charles River.... check. Blueberry Ale from Boston Beerworks.... check. Red Sox game at Fenway.... check. Hands down the best frozen yogurt anywhere (and I would know, I've looked- no one else makes carrot cake blended fro yo) from Angora Cafe..... CHECK! Rewatching "Good Will Hunting" after a local grown veggie meal and nice bottle of wine with good friends..... Priceless. (Thank you K and R!) It was a wonderful, nostalgic, blissful weekend.
And as if it can't get any better it was sandwiched between camp which deserved its own post and my family coming to California to visit. So in short, life it good.
I have not studied half as much as I had planned to but I still have 2+ weeks until I go back to the rock and there is something to be said for downtime and enjoying life outside of medical school. I'll be back to the grind soon enough so I'm really not beating myself up about not doing First Aid Questions every day as I had planned.
So here is to summer, great friends, a loving family, Boston memories and new beginnings in California. I am truly blessed. Life is good.
Summer Break- Day 2. I'm here with a new West Coast address. Fourth term ended without much fanfare. Five weeks to unpack our apartment, explore a new city, see my family, go to camp, and enjoy not studying (well, maybe in moderation.) Then I'm back to Grenada for a final term. With time I'm sure I'll have something to say about Term 4 but right now I'm just enjoying my new city. It's summer break, woo hoo!
