After a Christmas break that went by entirely too fast, I find myself back in my dorm room getting accustomed to the order of things around here. I was not ready to come back yet, I was quite jealous of my other friends who had another week off. Time does funny things when I’m here at PUC, the days seem to blend together and I lose track of time— my fellow students can attest to that. What feels like two weeks has already been almost a month! Before I know it, this quarter will be over and I’ll be ready to start the last quarter of the year.

This quarter has been enjoyable thus far. I got the chance to visit some friends at other schools this quarter and that was definitely a positive experience because along with them, they brought new friends! The seasons seemed to have changed the past few weeks at PUC, rainy and wet turned to sunny and warm which lifted everyone’s spirits I’m sure. I’ve been able to go outside and play tennis in January! Basketball intramurals have also been going on this quarter and both my A league and B league teams are really fun to play on.

Classes this quarter have been pretty relaxed so far. Anatomy lab is by far the most interesting thing I’ve experienced this quarter academically. Last lab I got to see the cadavers, which was surprisingly not weird at all. School has definitely kept me busy but there is always time for a quick St. Helena or Santa Rosa run with my friends when we need a break. Hopefully, I’m ready for whatever else this quarter has to offer!

Until next time, Au revoir!
