Guess what?! Thursday was my last day of school. I cannot believe it went by so fast! I have been itching to get out of the classroom for a couple months now. It was really hard being in class with mostly 18-24 year olds when you're almost 31. You can read into that how ever you like. I will tell you - on the last day of class some of my fellow classmates decided to drink on our lunch break (I wasn't present, I found out about it when our instructor brought it up). Some of these said classmates are not of age. Really? I have no idea what made them think this was a good idea. #OverIt
I start my externship tomorrow! I'll be working in general surgery, and how that works and what I'm doing I'm not really sure, but I'm up for anything! I am also excited to get rid of my tan and blue scrubs (which were HUGE on me) and trade them in for Spectrum Maroon in a size that doesn't make me look 20 pounds heavier. #Win!
//1// On Friday we had a new hot water heater installed and on Saturday we had our carpets professionally cleaned. We're now getting hotter water quicker and the carpets look about 100x better. #It'sTheLittleThings
//2// Nick and I went to see Joyce Meyer at our church on Friday night.
I was able to get some information on medical missions through Hand of Hope which is part of Joyce Meyer Ministries. A goal of mine for after my program completion was to go on/participate in a medical missions trip. So excited to make this happen in the next few years! Hand of Hope also supports clean water initiatives and the cause to stop human trafficking.
//3// I went to The Verve Pipe concert with my school BFF Kelly and her daughter on Saturday night after working at David's all day.
The only thing I knew about The Verve Pipe is that their lead guitarist, Lou Mousa, plays in the worship band at a church Nick and I used to go to.
These guys are legit. They were really good. The lead singer has tons of talent. I'd say check them out!

//4// On Sunday we went downtown to the Festival of the Arts. It rained on us a bit, but we still had a lot of fun. I got some homemade perogies, enjoyed the walking around downtown, and visited some of the art tents. We got to see some great dancers from one of the area's dance studios. It brought back so many memories!
Courtney: This lesbian keep hitting on me.
Me: Why does everyone think you're a lesbian?
Courtney: Who thinks that?
Me: The vet thought you and Amber were.
Courtney: Oh, yeah! That was fun!
Wishing you the happiest week ever!
