I have discovered over the past few weeks that Los Angeles is a wonderful, central location that allows me to see people more often than I have in the past. I have a friend from high school who is coming here for an internship this summer, and another former roommate from Cal Poly who will be here in a couple of weeks for a track meet. I am thrilled to be able to see them and get all caught up on what's been going on in their lives. I am also thankful that there is always plenty to do with people who come to visit. L.A. is certainly not lacking in the tourist attraction department, and I always have a good time seeing the sights (often for the first time) with them. So who's up for coming to see me next?:o)

Finally, I also have a couple of pictures from my time at The Master's College two weekends ago. After attending for a couple of weeks back in January, it's a little ironic that the only pictures I have are from after I went there...but that's ok.:o) I had a nice "old-fashioned sleepover" in my old dorm Sweazy with my former roommate and a few friends, and went out for an amazing breakfast at the Egg Plantation in Santa Clarita the next morning. My parents and sisters also came into town that weekend, and it was wonderful to see them!

Believe it or not in between all of this fun and frivolity I actually have found time to study, and my midterms went really well. I can't believe the first quarter is rapidly coming to an end already, and I have already registered for my summer quarter classes. I start my clinical in a hospital next quarter, and I can't wait to have real, live, non-mannequin patient contact. I'm sure I'll have lots of fun stories to share at that point... I hope you're all doing well, and I promise to do my best in the future to post as things happen rather than all at once.:o)
