For all of us, the past six months have brought adjustment after adjustment. Bad news has littered our TV screens, we’ve experienced stress like never before, and life as we know it has changed — possibly forever. It’s been a lot to handle, and for my classmates and I, the start of clinic as DS3 students was thrown into the middle of all it.
Every summer, I catch myself saying “I should come back here in the fall” after discovering a new state park or hiking trail. When I spent a week camping in Kentucky’s Daniel Boone National Forest, this thought was especially relevant. If you find yourself needing a break this fall, a drive through eastern Kentucky could be your solution.
Dental school can be busy. Honestly, busy might be an understatement. How we survive that busyness, though — that’s the key. For me, that’s playing and teaching the sport I love: tennis.
