Today’s [awesome] inane images of the day:
We have had quite an adventure these past two days — after Flagstaff, we decided to visit the Hoover Dam, then take a ride down the Las Vegas Boulevard (also known as “The Strip”). Unfortunately, we got caught in the I-15 traffic between Vegas and L.A. and ended up sitting in traffic for over 2 hours! No fun.
This morning we went to a cute place for brunch called the Escena Lounge and Grill — we shared a tasty breakfast burrito and double cinnamon french toast. There was also an awesome deal on the Yelp iPhone app where if you write a review, you can get a free glass of the house wine. Turns out that their wine is really strong.
Afterwards, we went to the Desert Hills Outlets then the tram up the mountain. There was a good evening-hours deal that included the tram ride up and a very large dinner alongside a beautiful view.
Right now we are enjoying a pleasant stay at the Colony Palms Hotel.
OUWB Admitted Student Update
I was extremely excited to receive this update since it was packed with great updates including:
- Big sib/little sib program: apparently OUWB set up a program where we can be paired up with a current Beaumont resident to get all of our burning questions answered. I am super excited especially since there were a bunch of questions about preferences for the type of resident I wished to be paired up with.
- Anatomy primer: unlike many of my peers, I never took a formal Anatomy course, so Dr. Bee’s awesome primer will most definitely come in handy! I’m kind of excited to cram in some studying before we start orientation.
- Improv comedy night: they set up an improv comedy night for us to enjoy on the first evening of orientation.
- Online orientation: apparently we need to be oriented online too…
