Also...yesterday evening, I had the chance to meet up with a friend from ODS. We got to share the frustrations and also the highlights from our start as new medical professionals. It was nice to see a familiar face and also explore the city a little! :-)
Lastly...I thought I would share this little story because I found it quite amusing. The Navy has some interesting terminology and one word in particular amused my ODS roommate and I very much. It is to deblouse. To deblouse means to remove your shirt. Anyway...I was in the occupational health office and this male corpsman is taking my vitals. He says..."please deblouse mam." I had the hardest time not bursting out laughing. I just had to take off my jacket for the BP cuff...but it just sounds so wrong! Anyway...it provided me a good source of amusement and I texted my roommate to share the story.
