Spring Break, where did you go?! I spent all year looking forward to this one week and within a few blinks it came to a speedy end. I've spent three weeks trying to wrap up this blog post, but as you can imagine, there's been no break from optometry school. In fact, since returning back from SECO I've already had four exams and a practical...and I've got three more exams next week.
As you all know from my last post, I was SECO bound. So, what is this thing called SECO? SECO is the Southern Educational Congress of Optometry. For Docs, SECO is the premiere continuing education, exhibits, and events program for the southern U.S. For students though, there's a lot to take advantage of between networking, informative classroom-to-practice lectures, social soirees, and of course, A-T-L-A-N-T-A!
Here were some of my favorite SECO 2012 highlights:
So after a not so good start to my trip, things went pretty smooth from there on out. During one of my ATL escapades, I was even able to take in a NEEDTOBREATHE concert. Not familiar with the band? Neither was I initially, but fortunately some of my classmates introduced me to the band. You must check this group out...they are too good. If you're a fan of Mumford & Sons or Kings of Leon, you'll definitely fall in love with this band. Lucky for me, NEEDTOBREATHE will also be performing at the Memphis in May Beale Street Music Festival...can-not-wait.
I'm already looking forward to next year's SECO...but first, these three exams!
P.S. Check out my next blog post as I report from this year's Congressional Advocacy Conference in Washington D.C. and fulfill one of my first official duties as AOSA Trustee-elect lobbying on behalf of organized optometry.
