Midterms are almost here, but that doesn't mean the fun has to stop. Last weekend, my wife and I went to the annual Eye Ball at the Cadre Building. It's a beautiful building in downtown Memphis not far from the Peabody Hotel. It had a floor for dancing, an area with refreshments, and an upper level with a balcony so you can look down on all the fun.
My wife and I got there right after it started because we have 2 kids that we needed to get back to. Of course that meant that no one was there yet, but we were okay with that for a little while. I used to ballroom dance in undergrad so I got to dust off some dance steps while the floor was still empty. As more people showed up, we had a great time relaxing and dancing. Overall, it was a good experience. Just the thing to break up the routine of lectures, labs, and studying.
As far as school goes, things are ramping up for our debut in clinic. Last week we were introduced to some of the technology that is found in The Eye Center. We looked at a fundus camera, a Humphrey Visual Field Analyzer, and a Humphrey Matrix. I've worked with the instruments before, but the experience was mostly exciting because of what it foreshadows. Can't wait for clinic!
