Hello Summer!

Usually I write my blog posts from my bedroom in my apartment, but this one is coming from a bus bringing me back from Maine. Even though it is not officially summer, the weather definitely feels like it. I came up to Maine this weekend to take care of some wedding planning, and it ended up being…   Read More

Where Did Second Year Go?

We can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel! Everyone says that second year is the hardest year of optometry school, and I can’t believe that it is coming to an end. It seems like it was just yesterday when we were returning to school from our summer vacation and getting ready to start…   Read More

Busy, Busy, Busy

It feels like it’s been forever since my last post. The end of February and the month of March have been busy to say the least, but nothing to complain about. We survived midterms, and surprisingly did not have any significant snowstorms to disturb our tests! Spring break was a nice time to relax…   Read More

When It’s Not Snowing…

I can’t believe it is already February. It feels like it was just yesterday that I was getting off the airplane and heading back to my apartment after a refreshing winter break. We have had our share of storms so far, and it looks like we may be in the path of another large one in just a few days.…   Read More

Reflecting on 2013

Another month has passed, and well, another year has also gone by. 2013 was a very exciting year for me, as it was my first official year fully in optometry school. As I rang in the New Year, I could not stop reflecting on all of the things that happened in 2013, and how excited I am to see what 2014…   Read More

Turkey Time!

It has been a productive month. With proficiencies over and behind us, this month has flown by, and finals are quickly approaching. Before we are able to get too stressed about finals, we were given a much needed break for Thanksgiving! With the 5 day break, many people went back home with their families…   Read More

Boston Strong!

To say the City of Boston has been filled with excitement this week would be an understatement. With the World Series in our back yard, the cool, crisp weather rolling in, and midterms being over (for us NECO kids), everyone has been in a great mood. I will admit it, I am not a Red Sox fan, but with…   Read More

White Coat Ceremony… and Midterms!

This past week has been pretty exciting for OD2016! On Saturday, we had our white coat ceremony at the Back Bay Events Center. All of us have been looking forward to this since our first day of school last year. Even though it wasn’t quite graduation, the white coat ceremony still felt like a big…   Read More

Goodbye Summer… Hello Boston!

I enjoyed some rest and relaxation these past few weeks, as I have been getting ready to head back to Boston! My last day working at the clinic in Florida seemed like it came too fast, but it was a great experience being able to volunteer there this summer. As I have mentioned in my previous entries,…   Read More

Where is W?

July has been a pretty productive month so far! Volunteering at the eye clinic here in Florida has been great and has proven to keep me busy and on my toes! I saw numerous eye conditions this month, many of which I have never seen before. One patient in particular was a young male who has keratoconus.…   Read More

So That’s How LASEK Is Performed!

Where has this summer gone? As I sit here and write this blog, I ask myself, what have I done with my time this past month? At first, I have the embarrassing thought of “I have done absolutely nothing!” But after I think about it for a few seconds, I reassure myself that I have been quite productive.   Read More

Year One… Check!

As the recovery period from finals is beginning to slow down, and things are starting to return to normal, I can’t help but wonder, “Wow, how is my first year of Optometry school already done with?” It seems like just yesterday I was moving into my new apartment, finding myself caught up in…   Read More
