A break! Finally! (well, sort of).
I love love love three day weekends. Mine was very relaxing. I caught up on laundry, grocery shopping, cleaning, and finally made it to that yoga class I’ve been trying to attend since… the start of school.
My best friend’s little sister is visiting from Colorado, so we took her on a Duck tour yesterday! For those of you who don’t know, the duck tour is probably the most touristy thing one can do while visiting Boston. The weather was beautiful and it was SO. FUN. To be honest, I’ve been having a bit of the Boston Blues lately. Maybe because I know winter is coming, maybe because a lot of my friends graduated and moved away and I’m feeling a bit stuck here for the next four years. Maybe I’ve just loved my days up in quiet Maine. But going on the Duck Tour totally made me excited about Boston again. It really is an amazing city and sometimes you just need to step back and look at it from a tourist’s perspective. ha. The last time I went on one was at the start of college and its amazing how my perspective of the same city has changed!
Anyway, this weekend was also one of the first that medical school won the battle over what I wanted to do and what felt more “responsible.” I had made plans to go up north again to my college’s “lodge” in the mountains. Every Columbus day weekend, over 100 people spend the weekend at the lodge. Hiking, biking, campfires, fall leaves. It’s perfect. Buttt last Wednesday, I got really stressed with school and decided I would be better off staying home. In retrospect, I TOTALLY regret it. I could have pulled it off. Which lead to a very pitiful Saturday night in. Here begins the very long battle of finding the balance. I don’t think there is a right answer, but I’ll let you know if I ever come up with a solution.
Here are some pictures from the weekend!
