Meliora Weekend!

30 Aug

So I got right on the website at 11:58am to register for Meliora Weekend, the alumni and family weekend at our alma mater.  Can’t wait to get away for a night!  We got a room only for Saturday night, the 16th, because we thought Chris would be taking the STEP on the 15th.  But now he’s taking on the 14th because that was the only date available so we could hypothetically drive over Friday for our department open house and sample lecture, come back, then go back Saturday morning.

Fall of my junior year and Chris's second senior year at our alma mater.

Saturday is going to be a tightly packed day.  We’re seeing the keynote address with Sanjay Gupta at 11am (get in line at 10am!), then a roundtable featuring Sanjay and some other people about the future of health care at 1:30pm, a lecture about how doctors should be more caring to their patients at 3:30 pm, and finally…. the piece de resistance… Jim Gaffigan at 7:30!  That would be the only reason my brother is going with us.  Hopefully he isn’t too bored as we drag him around to a plethora of medical based events, but considering Chris is going to be a doctor, we couldn’t pass those up.

Alrighty, I’m off for the rest of the day – I have to go to the post office and then stop by Starbucks because I heard from their page on Facebook that the Pumpkin Spice Latte is back, and I live for that every year!
