Because I had the Thursday and Friday after finals off from school, we planned a last minute trip up to Northern California. My cousin, who’s more like an older brother, moved up there with his family a few months ago. We were supposed to make the trip a while back but I got sick so we didn’t make it up.
I really needed to get away from everything after the madness that was this block. I honestly wasn’t sure if I passed the block but I knew there wasn’t anything I could do over the next few days that would make any difference so we packed up some clothes, junk food, my DSLR, grabbed some coffee and made the drive up after I got out of clinic on Thursday.
It was absolutely the perfect long weekend full of long conversations with family and friends I don’t get to see nearly enough. Every morning was a lazy morning. We drank delicious coffee and ate scrumptious food. We went on a hike in the woods and I bonded with my nephew. Hubby and I finally got to wear our matching t shirts I got for his birthday this past year.
Tomorrow I start another block of medical school and I’m feeling good about the rest of the year. Going on this trip was the perfect break from all things medicine and I’m ready to get back into things. So many exciting things coming up the next few months and I have a few series I want to start on Instagram so look out for that! The first years start anatomy this block so please stems some good vibes into the universe for them.
