Happy Monday, friends! First of all, I want to thank everyone who took the time to answer my little survey on Friday- it means a lot! After successfully completing my OSCE on Friday afternoon, I headed back to the QC for the start of five whole weeks!! Ryan & I stayed in that night and ordered take out from one of our favorites across the street, 5 Church. Our main mission was to sit down and finally figure out a vacation spot for the end of May when I have a week off from school. CANNOT. WAIT. We were debating between several Caribbean islands like Puerto Rico and Jamaica. I’m happy to announce that we officially have a destination on the books and we’ll be heading to… St. Maarten!!
Beautiful, isn’t it??
Excited would be an understatement. I’m so ready to be somewhere tropical where the water is aqua blue and the drinks are fruity! It seems like such a cool place, like two islands in one. Sint Maarten is the southern Dutch side- more lively with things to do and nightlife. Saint Martin is the northern French side which is more relaxing (complete with nude beaches… eeek!). Oh, and we will definitely be going to the beach that all the airplanes fly over. So cool!! If any of y’all have been there, I’d love to hear some recommendations!
Saturday was a lazy day. Ryan & I had a fro-yo date and ran some errands and rented the newest Planet of the Apes movie. We made chicken nachos for dinner and I insisted on making homemade guacamole. Ryan usually gets that “wholly guacamole” stuff and I think it’s nasty. Anyways, it was delicious but I somehow ended up slicing my index finger while cutting those damn onions!! Luckily it wasn’t too bad- no need for stitches and my little flap is healing up just fine!
Sunday was full of unpacking my life, watching Grey’s, and taking a stroll through uptown/hanging out at the park. It was absolutely gorgeous outside and all I can say is… bring on the spring weather! Spring is officially 4 days away and did I mention my birthday is in less than a month? Wahoo! As for today, it’s all about getting back into the work grind after not working for 5 weeks. This will start my 6th rotation which means I’m almost at the HALFWAY POINT of clinical year. How crazy is that?!? Hope y’all have a fab Monday!
