A much needed long weekend

The phrase "it's who you know, not what you know" is one of my favorites of life. It has been something that has been true for much of my life. This weekend is no different. As many ups and downs as I had in optometry school, one of the MANY ups is the friends I made. Since there are so few optometry schools in the U.S. there are students from lots of different states in one school. Some of the friends I made in school I will cherish forever and I hope we can stay in touch for the rest of our lives. This weekend reminded me just how lucky I am to have these such friends. I got to spend Friday-Monday on the lake in Beaver, AR. If you have never experienced a lake in AR, you MUST check them out. They are the next best thing to an ocean :) I also took my friend Ellen with me. She fit in perfect and I hope made some new friends.
