So here are a few picts from the runway show...when the real picts and videos go up, I will link up to them!

We all did four walks each
1) Power-dressing
2) Country Wear/Equestrian
3) Day-Wear
4) Little Black Dress
For the amount we practiced, wow the show went by so quickly! It was like each walk was SUPER SUPER fast all of a sudden!

But it was so much fun...It felt almost automatic.

And the after-party was fun too! We all didn't have time to get rid of the run-way model make up, and kept the hair and makeup on...which was pretty cool because that was my first time EVER with this kind of makeup and it was intense!

Harry and I made "SEPTEMBER" in the choc-ball produced RCSI calendar. I'll be bringing some home later for everyone to enjoy if they want :)

Good bye Kilkenny...

Goodbye Kilkenny...Today was my last day at Castle Gardens Surgery in Kilkenny. This week I drove two hours each way to get to Kilkenny in my friend's car. Irish roads are crap. That is a different blog post all together, and has nothing to do with my education so I won't talk about it.

I have decided during my 3 weeks in Castle Gardens, that GPs are awesome. They get all this flack for not being awesome, or doing things medically correct, or not being "helpful," but I realized community family medicine is brilliant.

1) Personal relationships with families
2) Acute and chronic conditions are seen
3) This kind of "closeness" between nurses, pharmacists, doctors, secretaries are NEVER found anywhere else except within the office.
4) The amount of respect given to these GPs for being such wonderfully friendly people are out of this world.

To top it off, my GP was an awesome man. He was so good natured, so friendly, so quiet, so courteous. Dandy, gentleman. He reminds me of a passive, mild version of my grandfather. Gentlemanly, well dressed, graceful, and charming.

When I left I was laden with

a) Fresh, warm loaf of brown bread
b) Fruit Scones
c) Scented Candles
d) Box of chocolates
e) Box of perfume and lotion
f) Two cards
g) Lots of love and warmth in my heart.

Honestly, I've never met a group of people so amazing.

Miss them all already!
