My friends are so sweet and planned a fun birthday dinner last night for me and Candace who also had a January birthday. It was such a great night! These ladies are the best.
One of the very best things about our time at Dartmouth has been our amazing friends here. One of the things that drew us to Dartmouth was the small class size and tight student community, and it's been even better than we thought! It's so fun to have such an awesome group of ladies who are all in the exact same stage of life, all dealing with the fun and the stress of grad school, all living on tight student budgets, all going to the same school events and community activities, all worrying together about internships and job offers and where we'll end up next. We're all away from family and we're out in the middle of nowhere, so we have no choice but to be close friends :)
In some ways I can't wait to be done with grad school (and get a paycheck again!), but I mostly just want this final year and a half to go slowly so I can enjoy this stage of life and have even more fun with our awesome friends!
