The first week has come and gone.

I am sitting here with a cold, and regular class starts tomorrow. I always seem to get a cold the first week of school. My weak immune system can't handle all the germs that I get from meeting so many new people.

Orientation week started Tuesday, August 7th. It was basically just a welcome day. They alloted time for us to go to the book store and pick up the text book list. I also had my picture taken for my new badge. I wasn't going to have a new badge made this year, but Emily convinced me that it was good karma to start the year off fresh with a new badge. At least I am smiling in this picture!

Wednesday was a school wide orientation where we mixed with students from other departments. After lunch, the medical students met up in our classroom and listen to some more orienting remarks.

Thursday morning included more talks in the morning, and we split into groups for library training which last about 30 minutes. Then, the white coat ceremony was in the evening. It went well. I was nervous about going, and I almost didn't go. Emily convinced me that I should, and I am glad that I did. Emily knows best. I should stop doubting her. The speaker was great. He talked about the "other side of medicine." The compasionate and caring side.

Friday was computer training (the laptops are late again this year!). Then we split into groups to go to the VA. The VA was a disaster. It took forever!

The weekend finds me unpacking and preparing for Monday. The class schedule seems improved from last year.
