Hello my friends! I haven't blogged in ages. I was just really busy on the ship and at the beach but now I'm finally home. So here's what I've been up to:
About 2 weeks ago the ship went underway for a while. I was a bit worried that I would get seasick but I was fine. Underway was pretty neat because we were able to stay late in medical and learn to draw blood and give IVs.

There were also a lot of great photo opportunities:

Back in port we kept exploring the ship and the base and we even got to visit Portsmouth Naval Hospital:

At the end it was really sad to leave everyone but hopefully we'll see each other in the fleet some day.

All in all it was a really awesome trip and I can't wait to commission. Thank you to everyone who helped us learn and have fun!
