Achhoooo! That's basically what someone hears when around me these days as I re-accommodate to the Houston ragweed levels (do people actually ever accommodate to such high levels??). But putting allergies and heat aside, I am officially back in H-town, although just temporarily. I returned on Oct. 10 after wrapping things up in DC and spending a great weekend with friends in Boston. Since that time, I've started working at MD Anderson's Cancer Prevention Clinics and am learning the secrets to how they maintain their very well-oiled machine (mostly breast, cervical and prostate cancer screening clinics). It's an amazing place to work and if you've never been there to experience the magnitude of the Center, I hope you never have to. It took me a week of walking around aimlessly (well, not totally) to figure the place out...but, now, I think I'm a pro...??
I will be at "the Center" for a total of 2 months - the first of which is described above. The 2nd month will be a Palliative Care and Cancer Survivorship Month. Should both be great!
Other than walking around aimlessly, I've been catching up with friends and fam and am still attempting to finish unpacking. This may get done by Thanksgiving, but we'll see...thanks to my parents for tolerating my mess every day (and for not renting my room out)! :)
Hope to post something a little more exciting soon...when I actually get a minute to breathe!
Ciao for now!
