July 2011 Archives
So, my summer has been pretty busy so far. As I am writing this, I am sitting on the train to Boston for summer orientation as a Simmons Orientation Leader (OL). My heart is rate is beginning to slow down from my last minute packing!
This blog is probably the most school-related thing that I've done since I've been back home! I've been working at a local farm gardening and planting to earn some extra cash for my education. Believe it or not, I think about quitting at least once a day but when I start something, I have to finish it! The longer I work there, the more positives I find. Of course, the positives don't include the slithering scary garden snakes and toads I come across!
I started shadowing my orthodontist and dentist last week. It was SO AWESOME! Can't wait to go again! Today Dr. Meyer (dentist) did a bridge fitting and a cavity teeth filling. Dr. Yamin (orthodontist) let me practice mixing the gelatin mixture for the impressions, and I think he's going to let me take an impression before I go back to school! I'm still getting used to the jargon and I'm learning something new every single day!
What have you been up to this summer? Hope you're having a great summer!
I don't really celebrate July 4th of course, since I'm not American, but I had a lot of fun! I'm finally on vacation visiting my best friend Katelyn in Cape Cod! I'm getting a tan, swimming, going to the beach, and loving every minute of it! I've been here for a few days, and am leaving tomorrow to go visit another friend in Wilmington! I can't wait! Then it's back home to New York this weekend =[ But anyways, I'm gonna go back outside and get even more tan!!!
It has been two months that I have not given any news! Well, I am back home, finally enjoying my family that I could not see all year. The weather is great; sunny and hot as usual, although we are having a few rainy days right now. The beaches are still gorgeous and the people laid back.
I keep on playing tennis, and I run every morning with my family to stay in shape! Yes, when I am back to school in August, we will have a really heavy tennis season until October, I believe.
In the next two weeks, I will post a blog about my island and a picture to show you the beauty of living in the carribbean :). I do miss Boston, though, especially my friends who stayed there :(.
My highlight of the week would be that I am finally learning how to drive, and I am actually really good at it! YAAAYYYY!!! Hope everybody is enjoying the summer!!! :)
