Finals week is fast approaching, so I have been super busy with completing final projects and studying for my exams. I have six cumulative finals that consist of everything I have learned in each class since January. I am a little nervous for a few of my exams, but since I am beginning to study ahead of time, I should be adequately prepared for them. This week has been a great week for me, I finished my spring dental clinic rotation and am now beginning my summer session of clinic ahead of time! I will be taking one summer class this year, but it only consists of clinic and no coursework or exams, I hope it will be more relaxing for me than this past semester has been.
The weather has also been warming up so I have been in a much happier mood than last week with all of the snow and rain! This weekend I plan to enjoy the weather by grilling out with some friends tomorrow and walking dogs on Sunday! Now that the semester is winding down, I am going to get back into an exercise plan and get back into shape. I enjoy running and going for walks outside, which is much easier now with warmer temperatures and some sunshine! Also this week, my supervisor from work decided to take the student workers in my area at the Admissions office out to dinner. She brought us to a restaurant in Eagle Lake, just outside of Mankato, MN. The place she brought us to is known for their famous “Duke Burger,” a two pound burger with a giant bun, cheese, bacon, and lots of toppings! Although I would have enjoyed eating one by myself (who am I kidding, I cannot even handle eating a regular burger in one sitting), we split it six ways and had a bunch of fries and onion rings. It was so delicious, definitely a great way to celebrate another year of working at the Admissions office.
I also found out that I will be able to work in Admissions as a tour guide again for the summer months, as well as help with class registration for Orientation programs! Needless to say, I will stay active and busy throughout the summer, but hope to enjoy some much needed rest and relaxation.
That is one BIG burger!
