My summer break has officially started, and I'm ecstatic! After completing my last exam on yesterday, a sense of freedom and relaxation swept over me. Yesterday evening I was able to sit on my balcony and just relax without a care in the world--a great feeling! Now that I'm done with school until the end of August, I'm going to go back home and work with the US Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Research Service. I've worked with them just about every summer since Sophomore year in undergrad, so I'm going to do that again this year. Although it's not related to Optometry, it is a great job to have and I'll be able to save money for school! I also will be going to visit family in Champaign, IL this summer, and I'm hoping to take a trip with my boyfriend at some point during this break. I plan to enjoy this summer and have as much fun as possible, as this will probably be the last free summer of my life!!
