Congratulations to Wife / Two Weeks and Counting!

First off, another big congratulations to Wife for getting accepted to Sigma Theta Tau, the National Nursing Honor Society! She already posted that there wouldn't be any pictures, but I figured I'd throw the crappy ones that I got using the digital zoom on my phone:

Now that I really look at them (and edit them / spruce them up using Snapseed), these really aren't that bad of photos for having been taken from the back of the room and pinching-to-zoom on a cell phone. Not too shabby...

Anyway, two weeks from now, Wife and I will be at an all-inclusive resort in the Dominican Republic. Knowing that we were going to need a vacation at some point during the first part of med school, especially if we had to end up living separately for a period of time, I've slowly been sacking away money for the past three years. At the beginning of this semester, I booked and paid for this vacation. With all of the expenses out of the way, all we'll have to worry about is relaxing and enjoying each other's company!

Granted, that's after we get through the next two weeks. For me, that means finishing Anatomy Lab and Lecture exams on the Pelvis, Perineum, and Lower Limb, a three-hour cumulative Physiology final exam, and a two-hour cumulative Genetics exam. I also have a paper to write (due Thursday) that I haven't started, a telephone interview for a Medical Spanish one-credit Spring elective, and 22 hours of scheduled lecture/review.

It's going to be a busy bit coming up, that's fo shizzle.

That being said, I have the equivalent of about 15 hours of lecture material to hit a second time, not including the lectures from the coming days, so I should get back to it. Wish me luck!

Actually the pics are really pretty good and you'll be glad to have even them in a few years! Super idea and way to go on planning a vacation. Nice foresight! So get er done!

Keep working hard, then when vacation comes you will have no regrets. It'll be here before you know it.
