I'm finished with Part 3 of Boards!! It feels really great to be over that hurdle, but the next one is right in front of me with the final written portion of the NBEO exam at the end of November. I'm back to Clinic after a great extra long weekend with family and friends. We traveled to Union City, Sevierville, Charlotte, back to Sevierville and then finally back to Memphis. We drove the whole way and the trip through the mountains in TN/NC was so beautiful, pictures would not do it justice so I just soaked in the view! It was my first time visiting Charlotte and I was impressed
with a very clean and friendly city. The weather was perfect and the NASCAR race was so much fun (although the ending could have worked out better for my driver). We got to walk down on the track and in the pits, got very close to some very famous people! Sat on the wall right in front of the flag stand for driver intros, also Sarah Evans performed a concert right there before the race.
On test day, the exam was exactly what I was expecting. SCO (and also the NBEO website) did a GREAT job of preparing us for the Exam. A friend and classmate of mine took the exam during the same session as me, so we were able to stress out about it together! She flew into Charlotte but rode back to Memphis with my boyfriend and me. I hope you enjoy my pictures!
I'll keep you updated on the goings-on in The Eye Center. We are all looking forward to the annual HALLOWEEN event at the clinic. It’s a big day for kids, we ALL dress up and decorate the entire clinic. There’s always lots of candy and a few celebrity visits (Memphis pro sports teams’ Mascots!). Looking forward to the fun but for now, back to work!
