Adventures on the Gulf Coast

Helloooooo!!!  Wow, I have been really busy lately.  First, Rob came for a visit.  Then we started shadowing at a new clinic that is 2 hours away and the guy likes to make us stay super late.  Awesome…  So I haven’t been able to update you all! 

So you know I’m down here for schooling/shadowing and to prove it, I took some pictures at

Living the Florida Life

Happy Weekend!  It looks like I won’t be able to do my normal daily posts here but the weekends look promising.  I’m an early riser but the other students here are not so I have time before they are ready in the morning. 

Anyway, I talked a little bit about my trip here.  It is for on-the-job experience in a Radiation Oncology clinic.  I’m

Safely in Florida

First, let me just say that I have been doing a lot more in Florida than just this:

Seriously, it has been pretty much nonstop since I left last Sunday for the 6-week practicum.  For those who are unfamiliar, a practicum, as defined by Wikipedia, is “a graduate level course, often in a specialized field of study, that is designed to give students

Florida Bound

So big news around here, I’m going to Florida!  I don’t know if I mentioned it yet but I’ll be doing a practicum (learning internship type thing) at 21st Century Oncology in Florida.  Housing and travel are paid for which is pretty sweet.  I just have to cover food and entertainment!

While I’m super excited, I also have thought of some possible hurdles I might

Enjoying the Spring

Happy Monday!  It has been over a week since my last blog, wow!  It is so busy right now at school.  The end of the semester is always the hardest time and now that I have joined a research group, the workload is even heavier.  On the scale of priorities, writing a blog post isn’t always very high.  Anyway!

Some little updates, my April challenge

Farewell Renaissance

So, I kind of checked out for the last few days. I actually worked on several blog posts over the weekend but none of them felt up to par. My midterm on Wednesday went well enough. Then I had off from school Thursday and Friday. I had all these glorious plans for my 4 day weekend but nothing really panned out.

Rob ended up taking

Nike Women’s Half Marathon DC Weekend Part 2

Continued from Nike Women’s Half Marathon DC Weekend Part 1

Going to the expo on Friday was a brilliant idea because it left Saturday wide open to do whatever we wanted.  Sadly, I needed to go back to the Nike store so we had to make our way back to Georgetown.  First, we looked around Thomas Circle a bit.

Then, Michele was so nice

Nike Women’s Half Marathon DC Weekend Part 1

Wow what a weekend!  I knew it would be busy but it far exceeded my expectations.  Of course, the weekend started off with a frenzy of packing.  I had to make sure I had everything I needed for the race.  I had forgotten some things at home in NJ (I was at school) but my sister was coming and stopped at my place to get
