An entire week after Labor Day weekend and finally I have time to post. Seems like the “fast-paced” description of this program doesn’t end at the end of the “hardest” Summer term. With our classes now lasting a full 14 weeks, the Fall term at first appeared to have a lot of time to relax, pick up a language, take an elective, or sign up for a research project. But with everyone in the school being an overachiever, I’ve heard many people say they’re doing all of the aforementioned activities. It’s not OR, it’s AND (Note: must study for Research exam tomorrow). Our “lots of free time” has been filled with all these different activities.
Admittedly, my lack of time last week was due to the long Labor Day weekend. Some may call it lazy but I see it more like a carpe diem kind of thing. Beatles festival only an hour away? Enough money leftover from my student loan to fly up my husband? AND a Living Social deal that included the festival tickets, hotel stay, and preferred seating? This vacation was bought in less time than it takes to navigate through Blackboard.
Abbey Road on the River is a 3 day festival featuring about 60 bands all playing The Beatles songs and music a-la-Beatles style. This year it was on the National Harbor in DC at the Gaylord National Harbor Hotel. There were 5 stages set up, and from 12pm to 2 am, you could just hop from one stage to another and jam out (or relax, if they’re playing Because or Let It Be). Eric, my husband (he’ll be popping in and out of my experiences here in Baltimore since he’s in Miami) and I had a ton of fun, singing and dancing to music we love.
Here’s the photo recap:
Love the Beatles? I’ll see you next year at Abbey Road on the River. Now back to catching up on the Pharm chapters I still haven’t read and studying for the Research test tomorrow!
