On August 1, 2013 I left my homestate of Michigan and headed west to Colorado. I started this blog as a way of keeping my friends and family in touch with my mile-high adventures, as well as my new life in dental school.

Sorry about my lack of posting lately... we've started our Anatomy block and it's kicking my butt.  I've never been a good memorizer - I'm more of a conceptual person - so this class is taking up all of my time.  We also have a full cadaver dissection lab, which is awesome!  The sight of a cadaver and a dissection always made me queasy in my undergrad anatomy class, so I was really worried about actually doing the dissection instead of watching, but once we got started, I realized that the human body isn't gross or morbid, but it's actually fascinating.  I really appreciate the person who donated their body for the sake of me learning about it on my way to becoming a doctor... Thank you, thank you!

In other news, Halloween just passed and I was able to go to the delta sig party last weekend.  Camille and I dressed up as Robin Thicke (me) and Miley Cyrus (Camille) from the VMAs and had so much fun.  I wish we could've gone out downtown another night, but with Anatomy just starting, it just wasn't in the cards.  Guess we'll have to save our second costumes for next year :)
