Happy Friday y’all!

So, today marked the end of the third week of second semester here at The Ohio State University College of Optometry, and (thankfully) I’m finally beginning to feel like I’ve readjusted to the daily school routine. Right now, the semester looks to be pretty straightforward in regards to class work, and so I’m rather excited (as strange as that sounds) to begin our seemingly endless cycle of testing next week! It’ll be great!

In other news, this past week marked my first time in clinic as an optometry student! Being so inundated with didactic work during the first semester (and year), it has been easy for me to lose track of the reasons that I fell in love with optomtry in the first place, and so it was great to be back in an environment where I could be reminded of how great it is to help others on a professional level.

Here’s a pic of me and a few fellow Opt-1’s on our first day of clinic!

In my previous post, I mentioned my excited anticipation of pledging EYE, and I was not disappointed! Pledge week 2016 was honestly my favorite week and a half of optometry school thus far, and I’m super excited to continue to get to better know my fellow future Optometrists as a member of Epsilon Psi Epsilon Professional Fraternity of Optometry!

Well, I think that’s all the news I have for now!

Til the next time!

So, somehow the past three weeks slipped by me, and though I meant to post and say, “I survived finals,” that obviously didn’t happen. For those of you who were wondering though…

I survived finals!
Okay. I’m glad I got that out of the way.

In other news…
Today marked the first day of my second semester here at The Ohio State University College of Optometry. Though I love most everything about life here at OSU, I was admittedly less than excited to come back… There’s just something about the carefree nature of winter break that makes the daily grind of graduate school studying even less appealing than normal. Oh well. I am very blessed to be here, and I am sure that this semester will be very exciting and full of new adventures!

One of those promised adventures will begin this Wednesday with the kickoff of Epsilon Psi Epsilon (EYE) Pledge Week! EYE is the only optical fraternity in the country, and provides a great way for classes to grow closer, while having fun and promoting optometry. As a member of the Greek community at my undergraduate institution, I’m excited to have the ability to “Go Greek” again in graduate school, and I can’t wait to see what all activities the pledge leaders have planned for us in the coming week!

Well, that’s all I can think of to say for now…

Catch ya later!
