return to school (or not): SNOW DAY!!!

To me cupcakes epitomize celebrations. Colorful, happy, and DELICIOUS. I find that my sweet tooth has been going away lately though. I’d much rather eat something savory than sweet. But is that something to do with my profession? That’s for another post.

Time to celebrate because we had a snow day. It was one of those dream-come-true SNOW DAYS this Friday. Considering we came back to dental school on the 2nd (the Thursday), it was like winter break got a little extended. Sleeping in, going leisurely grocery shopping (this is such a luxury for me), phone calls for hours and reading in bed without an alarm clock.

Although everyone was in lab all day anyway because of our upcoming practical, seeing the snow made me very happy.

Okay, brown snow is still snow. To me it’s one of the wonders of living in Philadelphia: how quickly snow gets cleared out on sidewalks and roads.

Those of you reading this from the comfort of your own beds at home-home, enjoy!
Dental school will start soon enough for everyone. ;)


  1. I love the first snow fall until I have to drive in it. Congrats on going to dental school, that has to be interesting. A friend of mine Jenny Miller from Lexington KY tried to get me to go to dental school but I never went. Now I regret it. Enjoy your cupcake!
