This kids ready for steamboat…
My new car!
Last nights fun…
I am finally done with my first week of orientation at the hospital!! Not to say that there wasnt some great fun had in between those long days…
Thursday survivor nights at The Biltmore. Really fun bar with $1 single rails and $2 double rails from 8-9 every Thursday night. This might soon become a frequent occurrence…
The Backyard… where we went for a beer after The Biltmore. Crowded and fun, all outdoors.
Maarten’s. Went here for the last call and a delicious plate of cajun cheese fries, served with ranch and oh so tasty. Apparently they have a mug club here, of which one of the people I was with is a member (they called him by name when we walked in the door)… I will definitely be going back for the fries, and perhaps to get my own mug?
Sushi Love. Tonight’s dinner choice with Jen, another Georgetown Grad just starting work here at UVa. The sushi was amazing, service a tad slow, but we had much to catch up on so we didnt mind. I would definitely recommend the Sushi Love Roll (delicious, spicy tuna with shrimp tempura).
I have a lot more computer training modules to do and a big binder to read through, but I’m excited for what the weekend will bring…
Trivia night at the Mellow Mushroom, Charlottesville. New friends, great pizza, and beer specials (we didn’t win the trivia challenge haha).
My first day of work is tomorrow. Needless to say, I am a little bit nervous (excited also, but at the moment mostly nervous). Ready to meet new people, learn a lot, and hopefully be an awesome nurse!!
Ill let you all know how it goes…
You may be wondering what the heck I have been doing, as my last post was before graduation (which was amazing, thanks to all of my wonderful friends and family). Since then, I have officially moved into my new one bedroom apartment in Charlottesville, Virginia and I am scheduled for my first day of orientation at the University of Virginia Hospital on Monday, the 25th.
Liz has done an amazing job creating a beautiful and comfortable apartment for me (with some help from Matthew). I could not be happier. I am settling in nicely and have two friends from Georgetown that have already gone through orientation at the hospital. It is definitely nice to know a few people.
I’ve decided to make the next few blog posts about discovering this new city of Charlottesville (this will probably comprise mostly of restaurant reviews/figuring out the city).
1. Christian’s Pizza… Enjoyed with Kara and Jen at their new house with a side of blue moon. Not up to Seabright’s standards, but pretty good.
2. Arch’s Frozen Yogurt… for dessert. I chose the frozen yogurt “Archer” called Mississippi Mud— vanilla frozen yogurt with heath bar, graham crackers, and gooey brownies mixed in. Had a sort of coldstone feel, but a tad more healthful.
So far, so good. Cant wait to see what the next few weeks bring!
