What I Did on My Spring Break

Well, it wasn't actually a break, but last week I headed down to North Carolina for a three-day Public Health Leadership class, which kicks off my next graduate certificate program and which will all go toward my ultimate plan of a Master of Public Health. The course itself was phenomenal and gave me some useful insight into how I interact with others and tools to improve my communication skills. Even better, though, was that I got to visit with my sister and two youngest nieces, whom I don't see nearly often enough.

The course was over on Friday, and I stayed the weekend just to get in more visiting time. On Saturday, we drove down to Wilmington, where an aunt and a few cousins live, and went to the beach with two of the cousins (and spouse, and girlfriend, and kids). I understand that back at home there was precipitation, some of it of the frozen variety, but I'll confess that I didn't feel guilty. Not one bit.

Sounds like a great combo. glad the workshop was good and you are still enjoying the courses.

And beaches with kids sounds like a great idea. Even better when compared to freezing precipitation.

Nice beach. I really liked the laundromat photo of your past post, very cool!

Can't believe you didn't have your chair closer to the water! That water MUST be warmer than the late August water back home, right?

An MPH? As one married to a person with all the coursework/credits for an MPH and none of the Plan B paper and one whose medical-school-engaged son plans to get an MPH between his 3rd and 4th year, may I be the first to say good for you, Sir! Public health is one of the bases of a civilized society.
